In conjunction with Essential House, Antony also ran an Electro/Tech radio show called Tuff & Twisted Sessions which also features some of the above named labels as residents. For nearly three years the Essential House show has benefited from a successful advertising partnership with Slappa DJ Cases.
Stemming from my six year residency for Stereo Sushi resident DJ (Hed Kandi’s little brother), Antony has took over tasks including organizing events across the world, all the radio developments including running the radio weekly show, which was hitting approx 700,000 listeners a week but due to family commitments Antony left this role but often write the press releases for the new albums launches, for both Stereo Sushi and Hed Kandi. As well as starting to work for the new brand Kings of House and also Born To Dance Records. In May 2011 Antony was asked to represent the new Ministry Of Sound VIP Brand and regularly supplying mixes for Ministry Of Sound International Radio
Antony regularly write reviews for Defected records, and also for Housepage.net, Borntodance Records, Manchester Global radio and ourhousemusic.net, for this he has a small handpicked selection of music industry professionals to be part of the team to write and submit reviews.
Antony has brought out a few albums and has mixed and compiled them all and there will be available from HMV, iTunes and Traxsource etc, from March 2010 entitled Essential House Miami Twenty Ten which is being released on Borntodance Records.
