Whilst he may be the baby of the family, there can be no doubt whatsoever that Toni Moreno is currently one of the most interesting musical talents on the Ibiza underground scene, and for a number of reasons, the first, and perhaps most important, being his outstanding work as producer, broadcaster and DJ on his Ibiza Global Radio programme- ‘Secuencias’. The programme features the latest trends and musical discoveries and counts on collaborations from a long list of not only the White Island’s Resident DJs but also, some of the most prolific names in the DJ game. His sessions, broadcast online and over the Global airwaves, are indicative of Moreno Junior’s immense musical talent, combining quality, exclusivity and his own particular groove. A cut above the rest, by any standards, and that’s not to mention his radio show guests: Marc Antona, Alex Neri, Laurent Garnier, Anthony Collins and Pascal Feos just a few of those who have made an appearance alongside Toni, live on air Taking it to the next level, this year Toni Moreno has also embraced the live element of the current music scene, successfully presenting his own interpretation of it in stellar venues such as Ushuaia Beach Club. Aside from that, he has also spent summer 2012 back behind the decks of some of the island’s most reputable parties including Carl Cox’s ‘Revolution’ in Space and Cristian Varela’s ‘Pornographic’ in Eden. Back in his studio, and you’ll find Moreno doing what it is that he does best – producing the electronic masterpieces that define him and that have already been given wide support and club/ airplay by artists including Luciano, Guy Gerber, Carl Cox, Ricardo Villalobos or Martinez among others.
His sound is pure dance music- a happy and seamless amalgamation of the electronic and analogue. “Ayahuasca” and “The Ritual” are the first productions of Toni Moreno to be published by the great Dane, Nima Gorji, on his Welt Sounds label whilst over at Anhura Records, Moreno has also released a third vinyl in collaboration with 2Vilas which includes a remix by none other than Tuccillo. Added to that, the fact that Tuccillo and Solomun have already remixed a number of Moreno’s tracks, namely ‘Piano Bar’, released on the Khazuma Future label and selected by Carl Cox to appear on his latest compilation, and it’s easy to see where Toni Moreno is headed.
As DJ, his music is cutting edge and he possesses a particular style has not gone unnoticed with recent highlights including his playing alongside Luciano at Ushuaia, his residency at Meganite with Mauro Picotto and his monster sets at the Opening and Closing parties of Space Ibiza. Internationally, Moreno has played extensively as part of the Ibiza Global Radio World Tour, leaving thousands of clubbers begging for more in clubs throughout Germany, Holland, Dubai, Switzerland and South America.
As a last string on his bow, it should be mentioned that Toni Moreno is also the current Director of Ibiza Global Records, dedicated to bringing the purest sound of Ibiza to the rest of the world.
