Antonn has had a great experience when it comes to music.
He first entered the industry as a professional dancer. However, through his dancing and music connections, such as Paul Van Dyk, Abel Ramos, Mario Fischetti, Abigail Bailey, and Dan McKie, he developed a passion for the music behind the moves and decided to begin producing electronic dance music.
Antonn always loved house music and started producing tracks of this genre in early 2011. Through perseverance and dedication, Antonn achieved his goals of becoming a successful electronic dance producer in just a short period of time.
What’s up next for Antonn? He has an upcoming releases on Ferry Corstens “Flashover Recordings” and “Pacha Recordings”.
Antonn also will be releasing a new track with the world famous Harry Wayne Casey (KC) of KC and the Sunshine Band. Their collaboration is expected to be a hit and Antonn is excited for what he says will be “one of the best music experiences ever.” With his extraordinary approach in music, he already knows people will love it.

Who/what would I hear if I were to listen to the last three songs/artists you’ve listened to? The Pointer Sisters “I'm So Excited”; Red Hot Chili Peppers “Otherside”; Cut Copy “Take Me Over”.
What is your musical background? I don't have any musical education; I guess my background is as a professional dancer. It's all I knew about music before I started producing.
Who are you major influencers? My major influence is the Swedish House Mafia. I also always loved the energy from Nirvana's songs.
What is your music about? My music is about life, love and cosmic energy.
If you had to describe your music to people what would you say? I don't like to describe it. I'd ask them to listen to it and to feel it.
What makes your sound stand out? There are many steps one must face in music production. You really have to work on your own sound and style. Now I'm still learning how to share my sound in the best way. I’m trying to be unique and stay true to my style. It’s a lot! But that’s part of music.
What goals do you have for yourself as an artist? Short and long-term? I only have one goal: To get my music playing around the world.
What does a typical day in the studio look like to you? To start: milk and cookies, or peanuts. Then I work non-stop for around 3-4 hours. Then a small break, maybe some more cookies, and back to work for another 3-4 hours.
Do you work on music full-time? Yes. And I'm so happy to have this opportunity!
What other hobbies do you have? I like to roller blade and dance. But, to be honest, music is my biggest hobby today. It’s great to have my favorite hobby as a career now.
If you weren’t making music, what would you be doing? I would dance.
What’s the best advice anyone has ever given you? Simplify, simplify, simplify! Keep things simple!
Who is your biggest fan/supporter? My mother is my biggest fan. It's funny, but sometimes she sends me dance tracks to consider for my set. She says, "I think this is something that would fit your style". I always say that those tracks are perfect for me even if I never use them. (Hopefully she doesn't read this:)
