In over 35 years of DJing, Humphries has remained a heavy influence on the dance world, beginning with his role in NY radio as one of the finest Mastermixers of Kiss FM, which became the hottest station in the five boroughs. His ability to break new music extended to the club with through his infamous Zanzibar days in the '80s and early '90s residency for Ministry of Sound. He also had the remixer's touch, remixing scores of artists from Soul II Soul and Janet Jackson (which earned him a gold disc) to Chaka Khan and Deee-Lite. Today, he is known as one of the Kings of House, alongside Louie Vega and David Morales.
Perhaps Soul Clap's Eli Goldstein puts it best, “Growing up in Boston, our biggest influence was the New York house scene and no one embodies this spirit more than Tony Humphries. For us, the gospel, deep, tribal sound he created at his Zanzibar residency reached us through the many remixes and tracks named after the legendary club. We finally had the honor of opening for Tony this year and we were blown away by his ability to represent the old, while pushing a unique, modern house sound. There is clearly only one Tony Humphries!”
