Living in a technological and digital post modern capitalist era, which in turn is leading people in a certain autism... Techno music encourages deep meditation and patience from its listeners. It is the producers of this music to offering the tools to sculpt listening habits and dancefloors into a deeper meaning and experience. One such artist is Tony aka TC80 who was recently featured as a selector on RA or XLR8R podcast series.
TC80's discography (started in 2015) could make you think that he’s new to the scene, but he actually is a veteran DJ who was resident DJ in German clubs for a decade. His experience in production and mixing is evident whenever he plays, able to put together different styles, eras and moods with expertise and a real sense of flow.
Unlike many other French producers operating within the tech-house sphere, TC80 does not play by those rules. Continually experi- menting, his releases tend to be more melodious and musically adventurous.
Inspired by Japanese video game soundtracks or psychedelic music and associated with the Berlin scene, represented by Club Der Visionaere and because his releases on Cabaret Recordings, Tony offers a delicate touch to all aspects of his music into exciting new forms. You can hear this in the captiving melodies in splendid tracks on his different releases.
