Kansai / Praha / Lamai (Tony Rapacioli)
Biography:
Originating from Italy, Tony Rapacioli began his musical career at the early age of 18 producing and began DJing and producing under the guise of Sly-T to the original hardcore massive. His first two releases came courtesy of MCA records with two hardcore classics, "Underground Confusion" and "Help Me" which were the result of a timely collaboration with Ollie J, another big name within the hardcore scene back in the early 90s. This eventually then helped him breakout further and secure larger capacity gigs such as Turnmills, Roller Express and the Astoria which now have legendary status to all those following the scene at that time.

Tony then decided to take some time out from music and DJing to go and experience life outside the studio and DJ booth to find some fresh inspiration for his music. Upon his return from his travels, the decided to embark on a period of hard graft to further his skills and he enrolled to do a music technology and sound engineering course at The Institute of Sound and Technology in South London.

Reinvention was his next step, so armed with the knowledge of current studio technology, the guise of "Triptonic" was concieved in collaboration with a couple of friends. Soon signed up to Ouch, Tasty and Storm Recordings, the man was back on form. Success from these signings led to the creation of Praha Records with 3 hot releases. However, the grind of running a record label took its toll, so he abandoned this get back to the music side once more.

Then came a stream of guises, including Praha, Ratio, Rouge and TR Junior, as well as a collaboration with hot trance artists The Space Brothers under the Lamai guise producing progressive anthems and gaining the support of DJs as far awide as John 00 Fleming, to Dave Seaman and Sasha up towards the more upbeat Paul van Dyk.

Into 2003, Tony is now focusing on his Kansai guise, with his first release under that guise being Rococco, absolutely tearing up the turntables of Armin van Buuren et al. with further releases planned on the Platipus label. Look forward to that!
