Biography

Based in Vernon (France), as a teenager Thony discovers the filtered house music and the samples of this movement, and sees them as a true revelation. Influenced by funk music, disco music and Jean Michel Jarre, he has listened to since his childhood, he produces his first pieces at the age of 10 with a binary synthetizer and records his first tracks on Amiga trying to imitate the author of Oxygene. In 2007, the revolution of myspace will play in his favour. Hundreds of thousands of sights will enable him to make the buzz on house music forums. Discovered on the platform by "My Major Company", he joins the participative label which will offer him a chance. In February 2009, he indeed reaches the 70.000 € thanks to 952 producers who believe in him. He imposed himself as the first electro artist produced by a crowdfunding system. Consecration of work! After a well noticed maxi single (appropriately named “High Future”), Thony releases his first album "Night City" distributed by Warner Music. Mixing the French touch’s hedonism of the first period (Crydamoure, Roulé...) with saturated sounds of the second wave (Ed Banger...), he succeeds to reconcile the popular mainstream techno beats and the more underground and aesthetic electro sounds of the 80′s. Graduated from Abbey Road Institutes Paris in 2019, he spent this year learning in one of the biggest studios in France and working on his new album scheduled for late 2021.
