Tony Junior is one of the most recognizable artists in Dance Music today. His Rock ‘n Roll appearance, his amazing live performances and his excellent sets get every crowd rocking.
All his life, rhythm has run through Tony’s veins. When he was twelve, he left school to become a professional drummer, teaching music classes and performing with bands. Dance music soon got to him. He started producing and DJ-ing and a few years ago, Tony broke onto the scene in a major way with a string of huge collaborations with (amongst others) Tiesto, Nervo, Kura, DVBBS and Steve Aoki. Ever since, Tony has kept releasing non-stop on some of the world’s most respected record labels, like Spinnin, Dim Mak, Musical Freedom, Maxximize and Smash The House.
Tony has a strong presence on social media. His YouTube channel, where everyone can catch a behind-the-scenes glimpse of his crazy life, already has over 90.000 subscribers and his Instagram posts receive tens of thousands of likes and views.
In his home country, The Netherlands, Tony is also a major mainstream media star. This started around 2015, when Tony was the star of a real-life soap in which the mad adventures of Tony and his dad were prominently featured. A regular guest on many Tv and radio shows, in 2018 he shocked audiences with his appearance in the hit TV show “Expeditie Robinson”, better known in the rest of the world as “Survivor”.
Tony tours globally and year round. His 2019 schedule took him from Asia to Europe and beyond and featured shows at Tomorrowland, Ultra, Mysteryland, Marenostrum XPerience, It’s The Ship, ISY Festival China, Dance Valley and many more amazing festivals and clubs.
2020 was a crazy year, as it was for all artists. With touring blocked almost the entire year, Tony dropped a string of records; “Fire it Up” on Actuation reached over 2 Mio Spotify streams. “Won’t Let U Down” (a remake of PH.D’s classic) featuring Ben Adams on 8Ball dropped in synch with a capsule collection with fashion brand PME Legend and reached close to two million streams. Tony followed up these releases with “Odin” (in a collaboration with Apaztron) on Hardwell’s Revealed and one of the craziest records of the year “Matveevskaya”, a collab with G-Pol on Actuation.
Blasterjaxx and Tony joined forces on Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike’s 2020 “Home Alone” Christmas album with a banger of a track called “Jingle Bell Rock”.
Tony closed off 2020 with a unique collaboration with Steff Da Campo. They reworked Belinda Carlisle’s “Live Your Life Be Free” into “Live Your Life”, which was released end of December on Spinnin Records, supported by a great video and a massive on-line campaign.
Tony Junior was one of the first Western DJ’s to start touring Asia again after the initial Covid travel ban. He started a tour of 11 sold out shows in Omni Taipei and Alta Taichung on NYE 2021!
Tony’s first release of 2021, “Inception” with his friend Isaac Palmer, will drop end of February on Blasterjaxx’ Maxximize/Spinnin. This smash will be followed up by a brand new collab with Brennan Heart and a string of releases on Hardwell’s Revealed label!
