We’re loving our friends over at Wave Music who recently gave us a dope EP from Area (aka M50) who dropped a mix for us last month. This month they sent this nice mix by Wave artist Tony Lionni who has been tearing up decks across the globe with deep detroit sounds back by modern kickdrums and warehouse vibes. Loving up this mix.. hope you will too. Awaiting tracklist, will post when I get it.
From the Wave website: Tony Lionni is one of the most exciting newcomers, fusing the subtlety of Detroit techno with an overwhelming euphoria. As a recording artist he is a newcomer, but as a DJ he has been well-respected in Manchester’s underground club scene for quite some time. He grew up in Liverpool, listening to his father’s soul, disco and funk records. Being down with a crew from Manchester’s neighborhood Old Trafford called The Rebels In Effect, hip hop shaped his future musical direction.
He has deejayed at almost all relevant clubs around the world including Club Yellow Tokyo, Berghain Berlin and The End London. Lionni’s profound knowledge of the history of black music makes his techno tracks so striking and soulful. Tony has releases on LOTD records Toronto, Wave Music, Mulemusiq, Freerange Records, and has a track on the Berghain comp n°3 with an exclusive vinyl release shared with Radio Slave. Tony also has released a Resident Advisor podcast in 2009.
