At this point it is difficult for us to sum up the multi-faceted career and personality of Tony Rohr. He is Brooklyn™s bang mixed with Mid-Western politeness, and is easily one of the most original and well-liked artists in the industry. His sought-after Live PA, matched with a discography and release schedule that aspiring artists would kill for, keeps him consistently in high demand. He has turned up the heat in recent years, burning miles across the globe and sharing his enthusiasm for music and life via Macbook, Machinedrum and two Korgâ€™s.
Tonyâ€™s lengthy journey from a College scratch DJ in Effingham, IL, to Brooklyn live artist and International superstar has been driven by his love and fascination for innovative musical ideas. His range of inspiration fuels his indefinable sound, gathering ideas through early Hip-Hop, House, Industrial and finally Techno. Channeling these expressions through his performances has earned him center stage at places like I Love Techno, Nature One, Awakenings, Tresor, Berghain, Chris Liebingâ€™s Spinclub, Kozzmozz, Fuse, and even the closing of the famous La Real in Spain.
In 2005 Tony met Tim Xavier and Camea in Brooklyn, and they began releasing together on Clink Recordings. He has contributed to five of their releases as a solo artist, and collaboratively with Tim as the Afternoon Coffee Boys. He ignited the labelâ€™s popularity with his biggest record of 2007, Kreuzberg Krunk. Tony also works with Alexi Delano, Dietrich Schoenemann and Dave Shokh (Dirka Dirka) on numerous projects and his work has been featured on top labels such as Cocoon, Weave, Podium and Frankie Records.
2008 is set to be Tonyâ€™s biggest year with two releases on Clink, one Techno and a new side of Rohr set for this summer, a House release! With additional plans for work under the Afternoon Coffee Boys moniker, coupled with his numerous collaborative releases on other labels such as Plus 8 with Alexi Delano, Tony is placing himself in the center of the action. With the rising popularity of Live PAs, Tonyâ€™s experience, production and performance skills have set him above the rest, and he is considered to be one of the hottest techno acts coming out of America today.
