Anthony Collins

Underground DJ and producer Anthony Collins has proven to be one of the most promising rising stars to emerge from the French house and techno scene.

Born to an Ame
rican father and French mother, he grew up in both New York and southern France. Getting his first taste of music as a child in his father's jazz recording studio in Los Angeles, it wasn't until later in France that he discovered electronic music as a teenager and fell in love. Acquiring his first pair of decks at the age of 17 and playing his first gig the following year, it was soon time to push his budding career forward by moving to Paris. Quickly establishing himself on the scene, he was booked regularly to play at the city's most prestigious nights, and was soon taking his talents abroad, to benchmark parties in Berlin, Ibiza, New York, Los Angeles, and beyond.

Anthony describes his style as a mix of deep house, minimal and deep tech, and his ability to master this range is demonstrated in the breadth of high quality labels he has released on. His EP's span from iconic French imprint Freak N' Chic, to the hailed deep tech sounds of Curle, Steve Bug's Poker Flat, Vakant, Mule Electronic, Ibadan, Liebe*Detail, Horizontal, and Supplement Facts. On the remix front Collins' unique style has allowed him to rework such luminaries as Ricardo Villalobos, and other famed talents such as Lee Foss, Cesare Vs Disorder, Alejandro Vicanco, Boris Werner, and Public Lover (the latest project from Bruno Pronsato). In 2009 he released his first full length album, 'Doubts & Shouts', on Freak N' Chic, to the acclaim of many in the underground scene, receiving full support from Loco Dice, LoSoul, Raresh, Ellen Alien and Shaun Reeves among others. A highlight of 2011, and Anthony's career to date, was his collaboration with Ricardo Villalobos and Los Updates, titled 'I Throw Water Into The Lake', a sultry, at times eerie, deep tech number on Nice Cat! Records.

As of late, Anthony has been focusing most of his time on a new venture with New York's Francis Harris. Scissor & Thread, which launched at the end of 2011, is by no means your average dance imprint. The label is a platform for ambitious sounds, mixing up slow and sultry house with the song writing ethos of the indie world. With a stead stream of releases from newly discovered composers, producers, vocalists and instrumentalists, 2012 was an exciting year for the label. On top of managing this new outlet, Anthony has still found time for his own musical endeavors, with upcoming EPs in collaboration with Francis Harris under their 'Frank & Tony' project, and solo work on his own more house centric sub-label of Scissor & Thread, dubbed 'Natural History'.
