Thursday, 13 September 2007
DJ Romy Black is part of the sound of the new Sydney electro underground. 3D decided to get a little more behind-the-scenes information.

When I was growing up my parents listened to a lot of…
’70s rock and ’80s new wave; stuff like Phil Collins, ELO, Led Zeppelin, Jimmy Hendrix, Paul Newman…

The first album I purchased for myself was…
NWA – Straight Outta Compton, lol

The first thing/instrument I started creating music on was…

Drums

My drink/poison of choice when out and about is…
Tequila shots and Corona

My “desert island” three records would be…
Prodigy – Always Out Numbered, Never Out Gunned
Cut Copy – Bright Like Neon Love
Daft Punk – Discovery

My most embarrassing musical phase was…
Metallica

My sets these days tend to be made up of…
Big room electro, eg. Dave Spoon, Hook N Sling, D. Ramirez, Deadmou5, Tommy Trash, Tom Piper, Elroy, Dave Implex…

When not on stage or in the studio my favourite thing to do is…
Yum cha or taking my dogs for a walk to Café Bones!

The single I’ve just released is…
Seduction by Romy Black feat. Stellar MC. The single has been released digitally on djdownloads.com and features remixes by some of Sydney’s most influential producers and DJs, including The Footsoldiers (John Glover and Dave Implex) and bambamMuzik (Tom Piper and Elroy).
