I recently learnt about the death of Romanthony (Anthony Moore). Romanthony is not a name you would recognize if you are not a fan of house music, but if you have ever heard Daft Punk's "One More Time" then you would have heard his vocals; to be fair, I did not know prior to his death that Romanthony sang "One More Time", and bear in mind that I wrote a short article on the track in June of last year and consider it to be one of my favorite dance songs. He died on the seventh of May but it's only been reported in the last couple of days.

"One More Time" was Daft Punk's most successful single until "Get Lucky" came out this year. While it's great that Daft Punk have a new hit after their long absence, it's a shame that the singer of their former biggest hit died around the same time the new song rose to prominence. From what I've read, his presence will be missed in the music world, especially in house.

Besides writing this post, I can only wish Romanthony's family the best.
