Over the last 5 years, Tony Dark has established a new lane in hip-hop music with his distinctive sound and ability to lay a formidable sonic foundation.
Based in Houston, Texas, Dark has 12 releases under his belt, each one just as dynamic as the next.
Dark’s sound encompasses the best parts of hip-hop while weaving in classic soul essence; so it’s no surprise that J. Dilla and Marvin Gaye are his biggest inspirations.
Dark has orchestrated custom sounds for Mickey Woods Jr, Sundown from Actual Proof, Brice Blanco, Kon Sweetie and Dey Bishop of TrapBang, Kvng David, Dopecal and plenty more.
While Tony Dark cannot be boxed in to a “Houston sound”, his hometown presence is very real including his work with The Waxaholics, a collective of industry entrepreneurs.
He has found himself on stages with the likes of HouseShoes, Scoop DeVille, Statik Selektah, DJ Aktive, Big Daddy Kane, EPMD, Rakim, Rah Digga, Cali Agents, Camp Lo, Slum Village and more.
