A review of "Two Hearts"
“Two Hearts”, revives that classic retro sound in addition to blending in with all those great Top 40 synth records of the 80s. From the instrumentation to the structure of the song itself, it wouldn’t be difficult to convince someone the track came out in the late 80s. You can almost imagine the A and B side cassette tape of “Two Hearts.” The vocals are a layered baritone, sitting at the center of the swirling synths, propelled by the driving synth bass and gated drums typical of the era. In sum, when the Stranger Things kids over at Netflix go to a school dance, this song should be on the soundtrack.

A review of "Shadow"
"Producer and artist Fonz Tramontano teamed up with Trio Minutes to drop a fresh banger called "Shadow" and it's a sonic blast of intrigue, color, and vibrant tones with a fresh feel and an alluring energy. The single is an up beat Retro style dance track that really touches on both old and new school vibes of the genre as the beat cranks on and synths build while vocals are passionate and sultry".

A review of "Replicant" album:
"Fonz Tramontano's Replicant is full of verve, swagger, and dancefloor ready tunes. It's a richly layered synthpop album that rivals that of bands like Mesh, Neuroticfish, or Iris.... Replicant has strong vocals that add a great deal of depth and feeling to Replicant" www.NightrideFM.com August 2019
A review of "Miami Sunset"
Fonz Tramontano’s Miami Sunset layers synths to create impressions of the falling tropical night. The track opens as steadily pulsing bass joins rebounding, medium-high, angular synths. Panpipes dance in an airy melodic pattern that combines hopeful, soothing emotions and strong percussion adds throbbing guidance. Rippling synths trail through the music in interlocking lines.

A review of “Miami Sunset”.
His way of production is super impressing: The mixes are razor sharp and clear, but also punchy and top professional. “Miami Sunset” is a brilliant instrumental that captures the Synthwave style pretty neatly and makes you wanna hear more of the synthwave side of Mr. Tramontano for sure!
