Hi, my name is Antonio Colantuoni
My friends call me Antonio or Tboy
I am from Rome
I live in London
A track you would recognise me for is To be. It all came from an older project of mine. The bass and part of the drums were put together before I started working it with Wildkats and then all the vocals edits and a more funk intention came out pretty naturally. We all felt the track and its potential! I was very happy when Lee Foss charted it on his RA Chart and Richy Ahmed played it in his Fabric Podcast for Hot Creations.
TO BE (ORIGINAL) ON BEATPORT
Labels I have released on are… Neim, Akbal Music, Suruba
I am going to tell you a bit about myself because…I really like U!
I was knew I wanted to work in music when…..as soon as I finished High School I chose to go and work for a recording studio because I was fascinated by the concept of recording and mixing and wanted to learn more about it.
I got into dance music…when I was in my teens and started going clubbing.
I got into making dance music when… I got hooked up with the first DAWs and Drum machines about a decade ago!
I prefer to…mmm…I love producing as there is no better satisfaction than creating the music and vibes you like, but when you can share those vibes with a crowd it’s definitely amazing! So I love both really.
My favourite studio snack is…Kinder Bueno – I just love it! And Haribooooos!
My best moment out DJing so far is …Well definitely playing for WYS in room 1 at Fabric – the sound there is just amazing and for me it cannot get better than that
The funniest recently was playing in Oslo in May on the Norwegian National Day when everyone was dressed up in the national costume – and very drunk!!! It felt surreal and the venue (Skaugum) it’s a little gem.
A remix you would recognise me for is… The remix I recently did of the hit Mantis from Los Suruba (on Suruba).
Artists who have remixed my work include…. Louie Fresco, Miguel Puente, The Midnight Perverts, Sean Roman
Artists who I have remixed include…Alexis Raphael, Los Suruba and now Sasch BBC and Caspar, Death House Squad (Hugo & Sammy) and Ziggy Kinder.
My music has been featured on… The Space Ibiza 2012 (Official Deluxe Edition) mixed by MYNC and Edu Imbernon and Amnesia Ibiza Electronica (Mixed by Mar-T)
I have collaborated with…Wildkats.
I have played… For WYS! (@ Fabric London), Café 1001, Magna Carta, Egg, a few warehouses, in Lisbon and at the infamous Industria in Porto, in Oslo in Sardinia at The June Festival 2011.
My sound is… a fusion of deep and disco vibes with influences from house and garage.
My next release is…? the remix for Death House Squad (1st of August 2012); the remix for Sasch BBC and Caspar (due end of Summer 2012); an EP on Miguel Campbell’s Outcross (The People Love U – Autumn 2012), one track on Hot Waves with Wildkats (Autumn 2012); and I’m currently working on an EP for Suruba.
I am next playing at… WYS! @ Fabric on the 29th of July.
In 10 years time I see myself…fishing somewhere in Guatemala…
Showing my work big love at the moment is… Miguel Campbell that took me in the Outcross family; and definitely Suruba and Neim.
My favourite producer at the moment is… From the UK – Miguel Campbell and Waifs & Strays; internationally – the Mexicans Balcazar & Sordo and Climbers.
My favourite DJ at the moment is… mmm…there are a few, but to mention one I’m quite hooked with Julio Bashmore
Quirky musical talents of mine include… vocal samples recorded at home and that you can also find in To Be and the upcoming Eye Of The Tiger (Outcross).
The strangest thing about me is…some of my friends say I’m a bit of a hurricane when I’m in party mood while when in the studio I’m very focused and demanding (almost serious!)
The worst day I ever had musically was… When I heard Justin Bieber on the radio.
The best day I ever had musically was…when Lee Foss charted To Be J
My first club memory is…gone!
We should keep an eye on you because… I’m short and easy to lose…
My famous last words are… “from Monday I’ll start going to the Gym” and / or “Next week I’ll get a tan”
Where can we find out more about you?
