Greetings House Music Lovers.
I have been DJing for 27 years and buying music for 35 years, I started listening to my parents Motown collection in the mid-seventies as a child which started me on my musical journey. Then I started buying 60’s, northern-soul, and rare-grooves and going to northern-soul and funk all-dayer’s from the age of 11.
Then in 1988, as the house music phenomena exploded i started going to Danny Rampling's Shoom club which started my love for Chicago and New-York house music, and Balearic beats. This was the best club experience in London at that time -that’s only my opinion. I was also going to Phuture and Rage at Heaven nightclub regularly. They were amazing times.
I had developed the disease of a vinyl addict, spending all my money on house music. Then I started to learn to mix, and by 1988 I was playing records in clubs in London and all over England. It was in 1990 I got a residency at the Astoria, playing alongside Richie Fingers, Normski, and Frankie Bones to name but a few.
I played regularly at the funky Indulge parties, in Brixton, and have done parties for UB40 and The Levellers and at many outdoor festivals and beach-parties through the mid-nineties.
After, I started Bliss Records, a dance music shop in Eltham, London. I started to make and produce house music, releasing a bunch of tracks under Bliss Beats and DJ Tony O, also getting accepted by the Label Spinners DJ agency run by Steve Good Goddard. A lot of the top named DJ's were on this agency. I played on Upfront FM and Select UK, doing regular shows and then, more recently, playing sets at Pacha, London.
So there is a little of my DJ history.
My style of DJing is top quality produced house only! It has to be music, by that I mean lots of layers of sound, big fat bass-lines, lots of percussion, and inspirational lyrics. Music that moves your spirit as well as your body move, that’s my philosophy. House music is a feeling, it’s a vibe that can take you to higher dimensions of total euphoria, and that is what I try to create when I play my grooves.
I truly love what I do, always playing with lots of passion and energy and soul and always play for the crowd. I play one good record after another and have been described as a DJ that you cannot stop dancing too. I have played from 1hr to 24hr marathon DJ sets, whether I play tech-house or deep-house there is always an element of funk within, whatever style that I play -sounds that make you feel good.
Tony O, sure to make you move every time! Check out my mixes, and be careful they are highly addictive!
You will not be disappointed; all of these mixes come with a quality assured house music guarantee.
PEACE LOVE AND BLESSINGS TO ALL TONY O
