Über Tony Touch
A master on the wheels and no joke on the mic, Brooklyn DJ Tony Touch is the undisputed king of mix tapes. Beginning in 1991, he has been blessing the faithful with consistently impressive products, compiling the finest in hip-hop, reggae, R&B, and Latin music. He has released over sixty hip-hop mixes alone, most notably the 50 Emcees Vol. 1 and 2. Each tape featured fifty of the industry's brightest stars, coming off the dome over familiar and unheard instrumentals alike. Other must-hear collections include 5 Deadly Venoms of Brooklyn and the Power Cypha series. He has rocked the tables on tour with some of NYC's biggest acts, including Fat Joe, the Beatnuts, and BCC. In addition to his feared DJ abilities and dope production, Tony Toca also rocks the mic with a vengeance, unleashing hot Spanglish flows flaunting his proud Puerto Rican heritage as one half of the Diaz Brothers. A card-carrying member of the legendary Rock Steady Crew, he DJs their yearly celebration in New York, and regularly spins at clubs worldwide. Despite his busy schedule, the self-proclaimed "Taino Turntable Terrorist" has also gotten into acting and recently launched his own record label. His debut "mix-tape album" The Piece Maker was released in early 2000, and features an array of impressive guests, including Gang Starr, Big Pun, Eminem, and Wu-Tang.
