Tito Torres (CH)
DJ/Producer Tito Torres was born out of the ranks of Switzerland. But, within such a short time of coming together, the world wouldn’t be ready for the shockwaves created by this singular man’s productions and fresh, DJ performances. His versatility spans to include both classic house and progressive sounds, as well as the newest trends of the genre, which he concocts in his studio during a thorough pre-set preparation. In 1991 the Zuricher opened his first local record shop called DJ Beat. Eventually, the business would come to fruition, allowing him multiply his business and have up to six stores in the country. DJs like Roger Sanchez, Richie Hawtin, CJ Bolland, George Morel and many others became frequent customers in Tito’s shops when they had gigs over Switzerland. Moreover, Torres would expand his empire business by taking it to Ibiza and opening another store near the port, alongside the owners of Zenith (today they run Music On at Amnesia). By the age of 28, he had already made a large impact on the music industry and he started to become a key player in the exposure and popularity of house music in general. Torres uniqueness guaranteed him to have plenty of mix compilations for EMI, Sony BMG and Virgin Music under his belt. Tito made up his way through by earning his spot in a long list of high-profile productions on labels such as the Ministry of Sound, while remixes for artists like Armand Van Helden (Witch Doctor), Right Said Fred (Sexaholic) and Gloria Gaynor (All The Man) became a total ear catcher to the masses. After 8 weeks in the top 3 Swiss Dance Charts, Tito’s “So Many Why’s” started to become an international house anthem. In addition, the releases with Dante Thomas (Mister California) and Jerry Ropero are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to projects in his repertoire. Meanwhile, his new titles like “Shine on Me” (signed to Universal Music in France) and “Lust After You" (featuring Miss California’s author Dante Thomas) are an absolute hit in all over the radio waves on the world’s largest electronic music broadcasts like Kiss FM, Juice FM, Slam FM, DI.FM, Fritz Radio, and the list goes on. When it comes to music content, the aim of the swiss producer is to create melodies for the people to listen to and come to love, whether it be at home or in a dark nightclub. Tito Torres puts an integral emphasis in his productions and wants to appeal to fans of many different house music genres. Based on this premise, his style has become quite remarkable and the infectious energy of his tracks have quickly showcased internationally by performing at main stages, moving thousands of frenzied fans to late night ragers at lavish clubs, sunset poolside sessions and set the groove in the red carpet at glamorous galas. With his records receiving tremendous support from large names and labels in electronic music, Tito Torres is set to be the next big thing out of Switzerland. So, if staying ahead of the curve is part of your game, keep a steady eye on him. www.tito-torres.com Record Label Manager Tito Torres’ commitment with music is very big. As if it was not enough to produce and mix music, he also runs several digital record labels such as Chic Music, Clubbeat Records and Arroganza Records. With such a broad stroke, it is not strange to see his tracks in over 600 Mix compilations worldwide. The ambition of the swiss is not small, therefore his next target was concluding a joint-venture with PromarkMusic, a Los Angeles-based record label to release a dance album titled “Children of The Night”. The album features songs from the rising singer/songwriter Ella Furmane, including their hit song "Sunrise" and the soon-to-be-released "We Control the Night". www.chicmusic.net Newbeat Studios Surprisingly enough, the success of Torres does not end up there. On the other hand, our stellar DJ is nothing less but the owner of the Newbeat Studios, a place where several well-known producers work together as an enterprise to offer top quality products and services. In addition, Newbeat Studios works side-by-side with Music Worx, a music platform with quite extensive boundaries, covering a wide range of music genres. According to Tito, these sites were built to help DJs and producers out and in order to get their own tracks up and running on the market with a very strong promotion and exposure.
