Setting up shop in the beautiful borough of Brooklyn, Tony Rohr has had a steady output of atmospheric, yet dance floor friendly releases. Sometimes labeled "Voodoo Techno", his sound actually varies from release to release. Whether it is a tech house classic like "Baile Conmigo", freaked out noise funk on the label Tonewrecker with Paul Birken, experimental chillout with group Carlito Verde, or a dubbed out techno stormer like "Yadda Yadda Yadda" his sound never quite gets pigeon holed.
DJing in the early 1990's his next step was that to producing in 1996 and then progressively to Live PAs in 1997, with via Macbook, Machinedrum and two Korg’s. He hasn't looked back to DJing since.
In 2002 Tony's releases landed him on various mix compilations by Frankie Bones, Surgeon, Supa DJ Dimitri, and his biggest accomplishment Sven Vath & Richie Hawtin's compilation of Ibiza's "Sound of the Second Season".
Just recently in mid 2004, Tony joined the German based Cocoon family as one of their artists.
In 2005 Tony met Tim Xavier and Camea in Brooklyn, and they began releasing together on Clink Recordings. He has contributed to five of their releases as a solo artist, and collaboratively with Tim as the Afternoon Coffee Boys. He ignited the label’s popularity with his biggest record of 2007, Kreuzberg Krunk. Tony also works with Alexi Delano, Dietrich Schoenemann and Dave Shokh (Dirka Dirka) on numerous projects and his work has been featured on top labels such as Cocoon, Weave, Podium and Frankie Records.
2008 is set to be Tony’s biggest year with two releases on Clink, one Techno and a new side of Rohr set for this summer, a House release! With additional plans for work under the Afternoon Coffee Boys moniker, coupled with his numerous collaborative releases on other labels such as Plus 8 with Alexi Delano, Tony is placing himself in the center of the action. With the rising popularity of Live PAs, Tony’s experience, production and performance skills have set him above the rest, and he is considered to be one of the hottest techno acts coming out of America today.
