It all began in 1990 for Tony at that time know as Tony Brown or T.B.C.
T.B.C., or Tony Brown to those in the electronic music industry, was the first and only artist that had exclusively signed a deal with Rocky Jones from DJ International Records. Specifically, Tony Brown signed a three-year deal, which insisted on three releases per year and a thousand dollars per track, which was quite a decent amount of money for house music in the early nineties. T.B.C. elucidated his enthusiasm for working with some of the best producers in the industry, namely Rocky Jones, Joe Smooth, Craig Loftis, Jes One, Chez Damier and many more.
After one of the most successful releases, “The Way You Move,” from DJ International Records, which featured Jessica Tuttle and MC D,.
Later Brown joined up with his brother, Unsel Brown, at which point, the Brown Brothers were formed; a record was released under Many Mokiers between 1993-1996.
The X-Files of Techno was slated for worldwide distribution shortly thereafter, and the label happened to be the very first internet record label, while being a part of a multi-media entity known as dancedance.com. 3000 vinyl copies were shipped out, which was an impressive feat for the group. Impressively, Ben Sims remixed one track for Music Man, while a few of the tracks were published for CD release.
Between the Years of 2001- 2008 Tony worked and recorded under the direction of Ron Murphy, the mastering engineer at NSC and a true legend in Detroit techno and house. releasing music on NSC Records and Fullpress records. Since 2008 Tony Brown has been managing the NSC Catalog along with running Media site DanceDance.com.
