Smoke N' Mirrors
When producing music, Antonio Colantuoni aka TBoy goes deep into his own world of imagination, childhood fantasies and space travels. His musical inspiration lies in the melodies of bands like Eurythmics and Nirvana through to early drum n' bass and UK garage as well as more experimental sounds from labels like Ninja Tunes, Rephlex and the mighty Warp Records.
Italian born, Antonio found his real home in London. Before developing his current sound he has spent years working in different recording studios in Italy for different radios and television channels. In London he had the opportunity to work with numerous artists and to develop his skills in music production.
Among the highlights of 2012 his presence on both the Space Ibiza 2012 compilation mixed by MYNC & Edu Imbernon (with the remix of ‘Mantis’ by Los Suruba) as well as the Amnesia Ibiza Electronica mixed by Mar-T (with ‘Try Again’ Originally released on Neim Records). Also noteworthy of last year the track-collaboration ‘Denied’ with Wildkats released on Hot Waves vol.3 at the end of the summer.
His most recent works have been released on Outcross Records (The People Lover U EP) with a remix of Miguel Campbell, two collaborations with Wildkats on Hive Audio and Smoke n’ Mirrors (respectively Whateva and Rock d Disco), a collaboration with Robbie Akbal on the Akbal Music Miami Sampler 2013 (‘Hi Sensei’) and an EP on Digital Delight (‘Move to the Left’). In August he had the pleasure to go and play for his firs time at Burning Man 2013 alongside Tone of Arc, Waifs and Strays, Kreature, Wildkats, Ashley Wild and other guests of the London-born brand You Are We hosted by the infamous Music Savages Camp (Los Angeles). In the foreseeable future TBoy will be releasing on a V/A for Outcross Records and on another V/A on Goodvibe Records alongside Audiojack, Davide Squillace and Hugo amongst others.
All tracks of this latter V/A will contains samples recorded during the Torino Jazz Festival 2013 (Turin – Italy) as part of the Fringe project, an idea born out of the collaboration between Hugo and other important names of the Italian music industry.
