Producer Spotlight “TV Tone”

Tone

Tony’s story began in Brooklyn & his love for music started at a very early age. He was born into a diverse wealth of music with two older brothers who were DJ’s. By the mid 90′s they had amassed a collection of well over 50 crates of records which ranged from the Beatles to Bob Marley, classical, funk, soul, Jazz, Latin Jazz, disco, freestyle, reggae, pop, punk etc…

     At about the age of 8 or 9 Tony’s focus shifted from playing with toys to playing his brothers records. As the years passed, Tony spent night after night, every weekend, all weekend down in his basement digging through the crates & honing his craft. While in highscool instead of eating he would save his lunch money all week to go record shopping on Friday afternoon. When he turned 15 his hunger, dedication & passion paid off, scoring him his first steady gig as a DJ for the world famous Empire Roller Rink.

     He played at the rink for 7 years till it closed & while DJ’in live at the rink he got his performance skills up as well as his confidence. He learned the importance of crowd control, using the music to create a mood & what got people going. Around this time he also purchased an MPC & taught himself to use it. With well over 2 decades under his belt he isn’t stopping anytime soon…
