In 2001 he landed at the console of the Tartana Club (one of the most important house clubs in the country) for ‘Souvenir de Ibiza’ where he made a huge impression, gaining a residency for the next season. Tony is known for the incredible energy he irradiates from behind the decks during his sets, delivering big deep house sounds with a Latin twist.

In 2005 he teamed up with fellow Italian producer Alex Vanni to create the electro-house duo “Mono”. Mono had big success with their first EP ‘Flowers’ on Rewind Records, which gained the support by big name jocks including John Digweed, Alex Neri and Steve Lawler who use it in his “Lights Out 2” compilation. Since then Mono have released tracks on labels including Revox, Black Strawberry and CR2. As well as their own productions Mono have also remixed tracks by Roger Sanchez and Pasta Boys.
