A core member of Trade’s Lite Lounge, Fat Tony, is one of the most visible and popular DJs in House Music today.
He’s built relationships the world over, not only extending to clubs and fashion houses but he is heavily dedicated towards creating a platform for LGBTQ+ people in particular.
Whether popping up on the decks for Vogue Magazine as their in-house Resident DJ or DJ-ing for both the David and Victoria Beckham brand, Tony is also a core LGBTQ+ representative for Adidas London having curated an incredible fundraising project that featured customised Samba trainers from 26 global icons including David Beckham, Elton John, Kate Moss and Edward Enninful. This was accompanied by a highly successful week-long exhibition, a march in the Pride In London parade and a closing party attended by almost 3000 guests.
Known for creating safe spaces and raising valuable awareness and funds for a number of related causes, including the #prouder project, Tony also enjoy’s a stellar reputation as a club promoter dating back 30 plus years with his current Private Life event now in its 8th year. Tony’s creative ambition extends beyond community projects, chairing panels for the likes of SHOWstudio, Google & SoHo House and he’s cemented his position as a versatile influencer across multiple UK industries, including television and his highly popular meme accounts.
Ahead of the Trade 30th Birthday at Egg LDN on Saturday February 12th, where Tony is one of the headliners, he has out together a massive dance floor playlist.
“When you hear people talk about Berghain, Studio 54 and Paradise Garage… put all these three together and you’ve got Trade. The first time I ever went to Trade it was like walking into a dept store of chaos and debauchery. Everything that was on the rails I wanted. It was one of those things that can never be replicated just like their motto “often copied, never equalled”. Never a truer word spoken. I feel very blessed to have been a part of that journey since the beginning and now 30 years on even more so to celebrate this milestone together with the massive 24 hour party at Egg LDN. I’m excited to put together this playlist featuring some of my favourite tracks from over the years.”
