The absolute Don of Italo piano house, Don Carlos brings his legendary sound to RNT with an EP of classic floor fillers. Don (Carlo Troya) and S-Tone (Stefano Tirone) released two records on Bologna label Calypso in the early 90s under the artist name Montego Bay.
Incredibly, the four tracks on this EP were also produced 30 years ago, then shelved and forgotten about until recently when a connection with RNT inspired to Don dig up their rare vintage! From pumping melodic house jams like Music All Night and Waited So Long, to sampled disco house cuts Keep Dancing the Boogie and Gotta Keep Dancing, this EP is a veritable time capsule, dripping with the swag and sonics of the golden era of 90s club music.
Banging release, love Don Carlos! Music All Night / Gotta Keep Dancing are my jams, full support.

This is fantastic! I was (still am) a huge fan of the early 90s Italian house sound and especially Don Carlos. I played the Montego Bay – Everything 12″ on Calypso to death! These tracks do not disappoint. I particularly love ‘Music All Night’ and ‘Keep Dancing The Boogie’. Can’t wait to play!
