Harry Romero has teamed up with Defected Records to curate a 30-track compilation packed with a mixture of his favourite house music classics and re-edits of the producer’s biggest tracks.

Set for release on February 3, the Jersey native’s compilation marks his joining as one of Defected’s House Masters, after more than three decades in the business.

Listeners can expect collaborations with renowned house vocalists including Inaya Day, Cece Rogers and Jocelyn Brown, plus powerful classics which propelled Romero to success including ‘Night @ The Black’ and ‘Just Can’t Get Enough’.

There are also exclusive remixes of classic tracks on the record, inclusive of some recent Romero takes on recent releases from Honey Dijon and DJ SKT.

“It’s been a 30-year love affair with this music and culture,” Romero explains. “House music has been really good to me and to see this tracklist and know that I’ve contributed and brought joy and happiness to so many just warms my heart.

“This tracklist represents so much hard work and so many sleepless nights but most importantly it’s my art and I am very proud of what I’ve accomplished thus far. I hope you all enjoy the music and the journey as much as I have.”
