With such top personalities in the industry endorsing, I’m sure you can imagine how good Romay must be! Music has always been part of Romay’s life from his youth where he was introduced by his father to a variety of music. Listening to music became a necessity for Romay and he incorporated it into his daily routine. In fact, he soon started Djing and delving into Reggae/Hardcore/Jungle and the emerging Drum & Bass scene. Romay progressed to making some “D&B dubplates” of his own at a relative’s studio, where his DJing career truly began.
Djing at Ministry/Bagleys and resident for 2 years at Limelights, Romay then set about getting his own studio together and learning the finer points of engineering by attending London School of Sound and SAE institute. Romay gained experience by mixing down his friends rock bands and other artist’s works to slowly develop his skills. Drawing from a wide variety of musical styles ie. Dubstep / Jazz/Classical/Rock & Traditional Indian, Romay started work on a wide range of musical projects including production work for large acts such as Asian Dub Foundation, as well as his own D&B and Dubstep tunes.
After 23 releases between 2000-2007 on UK labels such as Vibez Recordings/Full Fat Recordings/Rumour Records/Strictly-Digital/ Pivotal Recs/Basement Records, he took a short break of 3 years to better understand changing trends in music. In Oct 2010, Romay issued 4 test tracks of different genres to radio stations. Within 2 weeks, three of the tracks made it to radio, including plays on BBC Radio 1, 1 Xtra , and Asian Network.
Romay was ready to push his new eclectic tracks further and so set up his own label “Acoustic Science”. After speaking with UK distributor Nu-Urban Music, the label was set to be introduced to the world of music. Now an accomplished producer & mix engineer with 16 years experience Romay says:
” We want to make & promote new and exciting music with a texture and beauty that stands out in any genre of music. The music we promote is melodic, technical but sounds natural, yet dynamic enough to work on the dancefloor in basic terms Acoustically Scientific. Break-Beats/Drum’n’Bass has been the flavour for me over the last 10 years, recently moving into more Electro breaks, Dubstep & Indian Fusion projects and generally whatever sounds good, i am always looking to create good sounding music that works in a variety of environments”.
With current projects being supported and played by Kiss Fm, BBC Radio 1, BBC Asianetwork and many more local stations across the Uk, India, Pakistan and US, Romay is an artist to watch over the next few years and Acoustic Science is the label. Keeping it Acoustically Scientific and stay locked to UrbanAsian!
