When I was young, every time I heard a song I really loved, I wanted to physically have it. I wouldn't be satisfied until I owned the record. Every week I spent my allowance on records. I didn't care to buy clothes, or much else, just records, records and more records. Early in my teenage years I recall listening to mix-tapes. I don't remember where they came from, I just remember listening to the mixes, fascinated by the mixes that were so good that you couldn't figure out where one song began and the other ended, and that's my goal - to mix so smoothly you don't know where one song stopped and the other started. My DJ name, "DJ High-Tone" was inspired by many things. "Tone" is a nick-name that I've always had, as it's the first syllable of my first name - Tony. One day my Uncle took me to see the movie La Bamba. Over all, La Bamba made a big impression on me. In the movie, when the lead character, Ritchie Valens, introduces himself to the girl he is interested in, he tells her that she can call him "high tone". After that my Uncle kept saying "Hi Tone" to me. I chose the spelling "high" to represent the feeling I want people to get when I'm spinning, and "tone" as a play on that element of music, as well as my nick-name. My favourite DJ is DJ Starting from Scratch" and I aspire to be as good as him one day.
