Psytrance Nation

Living life in a trance.

Breaking into the music world is not an easy task, however, staying there and remaining consistent can prove to be even more difficult. We will talk about the italian producer/DJ Toni Costanzi. Only 26 years old, the IT native has already had massive singles such as “Bomboclvt” and “Lies”, releasing music on Plasmapool and Sirup. Music. As Toni has made a name for himself over the past couple of years, the surrealness of the journey has not worn off on him.

A lot of times writers and producers are encouraged to workshop their material, seek out criticism and look for ways to improve. That’s all well and good, but often times we are our own best and worst critics. Once you’re comfortable doing what you want to be doing, you know if the work is good or not, you don’t need anyone to tell you otherwise. That’s the boat that Toni has found himself in. Quantity or quality? For him, it’s always the latter. He admits that all of his first productions were not up to par with his work now, but working through them brought him to where he is today. He admits it can be difficult to consistently put out great tracks now that his work needs to meet a certain standard. We can say we’re not paying attention to what other people think, but often times that’s just not true. Toni points out that artists do have to keep that in mind.

Toni is at the forefront of the next generation of producers, both in the IT and worldwide, who can help make a positive impact with their music in a time when the world is starkly divided. The power of music to unite is not lost on Toni and he absolutely hopes that his music can help make a positive impact on the world. With so much negativity going on, the next generation will look to the artists of tomorrow to hopefully help lead the way towards a better society.
