Hard Ton is the XXL disco diva of the XXI Century! Italy is known for its big singers but this one really breaks the mould. His Sylvester styled falsettos conjure up the smoky, poppers-fuelled dancefloors of Hi-NRG mixed with a completely contemporary sound of accelerated beats and screaming acid basslines.

Using, exclusively, analogue and vintage gear from the 303, 606, 707, Oberheim DMX, Korg Monopoly, MS20, Prophet V5, the list goes on and is a calling card to any gear-nerd. But the music never becomes stiff or contrived, in fact it always remains fun, as expected when you play with equipment that lives and dies by its own unpredictable rules. With his 150kg, Hard Ton is a Giorgio Moroder low-fat grooves model meeting a heavyweight Chicago Trax queen machine.

He says, "Musically I am inspired by diverse artists, from the disco masters like Giorgio Moroder, Patrick Cowley, Bobby O., to more contemporary artists like Chelonis R. Jones, Khan, Justus Koehncke, then the first Chicago House. But also heavy metal singers like Rob Halford & Geoff Tate."
