At the age of 11 Tony Papadopoulos (later to become known as Tone Depth) found himself in a peculiar situation. He was walking down the street with a friend when he suddenly fell down a hole and found himself hanging off a metal spike like a human shish kebab, his feet dangling in thin air. After 2 months in the hospital, Tone fully recovered and was thankful to be alive. When asked by his parents afterwards what he wanted to do with his life he said, “I want to learn how to play guitar and make music!”.
12 years later a chance sighting of Paul Oakenfold at a Miami Airport allowed Tone to pass along on a demo, kicking off what can already be described as an illustrious career. His productions have been signed to labels run by the worlds top international DJ’s (Tiesto, Paul Oakenfold, Armin Van Burren, Anthony Attalla, John Digweed to name a few…) and he’s been behind classic remixes like Armin Van Burren “Who Is Watching” ft.
