With Elrow Town London coming up on the 18th/19th August 2018 and being one of the craziest parties in the world, you definitely don’t want to miss out. The Idle Man had a chat with Toni Varga, one of Elrow’s flagship DJ’s to talk about all things Elrow and get an insight on this huge worldwide event. Take a look below and see what he had to say.
Originally Galician born, Toni’s thirst for ever experimental production techniques and ever growing taste for music discovery lead him to re-locate to Barcelona to further fuel & follow his desires, while not knowing that the path he’d taken would eventually lead him into the heart of the Elrow family as one of their flagship residents.
Outside of Elrow, Toni is not shy of exploits and achievements in the world of House & Techno. Having conquered dance floors from Amnesia, Pacha, Space and more, it’s no stretch of the imagination to say Toni’s sound is embodied by the spirit of the island. From 2004 through to 2010, Toni has grown alongside the island landing residencies at nights such as People From Ibiza and Contact. However, it was the legendary Amnesia World Tour that really gave Toni the platform to show the world & 30 of it countries, the technique & sound he had so carefully crafted which the people have all come to know and love.
