Phat-Tony began learning his way around a mixer as a kid. As his father was a resident DJ at Rodeo U.S.A, formerly a club in Las Cruces, he had the chance to discover something that later grew into much more than a fascination. While his father worked on the lights for his show, a young Phat-Tony, inspired, would pass the time experimenting with the mixer. Phat-Tony immediately realized that this was his passion. As the years went on, Phat-Tony joined the school band and began his classical training in music.
After finally deciding to give up everything and chase the dream he started as a kid, he became more serious with his love for music in late 2010. Phat-Tony managed to put his mixing skills to use within one short year. He landed a residency at Graham Central Station, and since then has played at several Ziehl Inc. events which has led to the booking of blog sensation Chemical Jump. He also had several bookings and collaborations of several local groupings and publications.
Phat-Tony became the winning DJ on an Online Local contest submitted by EP/LC Partytenders and WazzupCruces.com, where locals were asked which DJ would they like to see open for an the event starring the legendary DJ Ease, known as the official opener for The Beastie Boys. Since then has toured with DMX, and opened for other names which include New York’s top female DJ, DJ Annalyze, Mike Posner’s official tour DJ, DJ Benzi, international producer Darth & Vader, and Messinian – whose track was recently played on “So You Think You Can Dance.”
According to the Euphoria Music Festival in Austin, Texas, out of over 50 entries from around the country he finished 9th, placing him among the top 10 DJ entries in the nation!
