‘HARD TON are the italian duo with the larger than life disco sound and a surprising love of metal. Fused together in 2008 from the musical loins of DJ Wawashi and heavy metal singer Max. Sylvester-styled falsettos conjure up memories of smoky dancefloors during the heady days of HI-NRG, which combined with a contemporary sound of accelerated beats and screaming acid basslines, shows a nod to the past can result in a slap across the face for the present.
Using analogue and vintage gear, from the 303, 606, 707, Oberheim DMX, Korg
Monopoly, MS20, Prophet V5, the music is as organic as synthetic music can
be, their equipment living and dying by its own unpredictable rules.’
Hard Ton are appearing at Everybooty this Thursday 27th at the Brooklyn Academy of Music.
