Toni Toolz has produced music under many pseudonyms for over 20 years. If you have ever been near a pair of decks for any length of time, then the chances are that you've heard a track involving Toni Toolz, in one way or another. Toolz holds production credits on a wide range of material with artists from Pharrell Williams to David Pryla, Kelis to Adam Renz, and Moby to General Levy.
Toni Toolz has worked on countless tracks and projects for over two decades under various names. In the early days, he spent many years developing his skills, pushing out white labels, experimenting in many genres and working on projects with fellow music makers. This eventually led to remix jobs for superstar artists like Destiny's Child, Pharrell Williams, Beenie Man, Kelis and Moby on labels like Edel, Mute, Columbia, EMI, and Virgin under various different guises. Production credits include gold and platinum selling singles and albums like the platinum selling "Trick Me" by Kelis, "Crier La Vie" by Moby, and Mylene Farmer who achieved number one success in the French national charts, N*E*R*D's "She Wants To Move", and inclusion on the gold selling "Fly Or Die" album in Japan.
Fast-forward to 2012, and Toni Toolz launched Adobo Studios. His more recent productions have been supported by the likes of MJ Cole, Brandon Block, Fatboy Slim, Pete Tong, Annie Mac, Kissy Sell Out, DJ EZ and that's just scratching the surface. Over the past few years Adobo Studios has naturally grown into a creative hub of artists, writers, singers, DJs and musicians, all of which Toolz is currently working with on various projects.
Toolz also re-launched the label Big Mix Up Records at the end of 2015 and Big Mix Up Records 2 in 2019 with a dedicated team, a seriously eclectic release schedule, regular chart entries, press features, global airplay including domestic stations such as BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra, Capital and Kiss, Spotify playlists, premieres and download store features on iTunes, Traxsource and Beatport.
At Adobo Studios right now in 2020, Toni Toolz is continuing his work on over a dozen diverse projects with just about as many people, confirming as he likes to say:
"No two days are the same in the lab".
