It works wonders for his career. His music is gaining strength; tracks like ‘Twerk Anthem’, ‘Michael Jordan’ and ‘Wake Up’ get releases on Steve Aoki’s imprint Dim Mak. Together with DVBBS he produces the highly popular ‘Immortal’, which already has more then 7 million views on Spinnin’ TV.

This results in his biggest hit to date their single ‘Get Down’, released on Musical Freedom, shoots to the top of the Beatport charts and turns in a worldwide hit. Meanwhile, the video gains over 7 million views on YouTube and 550,000 streams on Spotify. Speaking of hits, Tony has been dropping the releases ‘Face Based’ – also on Tiësto’s label Muscial Freedom- and ‘Make You Go’ – a cooperation with Riggi & Piros (on the label Doorn Records).
