EDMANIA OPEN AIR 2018 will host 40+ DJs from around the world in Trenčín (SK) during 22.-.23. June 2018. Dutch talent – Tony Junior who will perform at main stage on the second festival day.
Hi Tony, you are coming to Slovakia for the first time. Are you looking forward to it?
Hey man, I’m really excited! I’m super curious how the people in Slovakia can party 😉
Tell our readers about your musical journey. How it all started?
I make music since I can think i guess. My father was a drummer, and from a young age I started drumming as well. I used to play in a band when I was younger. One day my band split up and I decided to make music on my own. A friend of me brought me to a house party, and since then I fell in love with house music. A couple of years later I got signed by Spinnin Records, and I kept going till where I am today 😉
We know you are trying to help new talents and upcoming artists. How is it going? Have you found some super talent already?
Yeah I really try to be there for upcoming artists, I have made some tutorials on my YouTube channel where I explain how I make a track. Of course it’s hard to help everybody. I always tell people to send me their music, and if I like it I will get in contact with them. Too bad I cannot always give feedback to everybody because I’m just too busy. I have found some guys where I’m working with now on some new tracks.
Do you have some advice for young producers?
I think the best advice is to start it because you like to make music and you have a passion for it. If you want to make music just for the fame and the money it’s not gonna bring you there. It’s a really hard job where you have to be creative all the time. All producers will face a writersblock one day, I had it as well. At that moment you just have to keep going, and sit hours and hours in your studio. Till one day, you got a new track. Try to improve yourself, watch tutorials, listen to other songs, and maybe most important… try to develop your own sound and style.
What are your plans for summer 2018? Something special coming up?
I have a pretty busy tour schedule during the summer. Besides that I will sit a lot of hours in the studio to make some new tracks. And one of the most special things is visiting Slovakia and playing EDMania of course! 😛
We are really looking forward to greet you in Trenčín. Do you have any special message for your fans out here?
I’m super excited to go!
And for my fans: Come to Trencin, buy your tickets, put on your disco outfit, let’s drink some vodka and most important… Let’s party! I will see you guys there!
