"One of the long lasting members of Germany's techno and house scene, Toni Rios drops this commemorative full length celebrating his 20 years in the business with a long player of new tracks highlighting his long and illustrious history appropriately entitled Past & Present. From Toni Rios time during the mid-nineties at the legendary Frankfurt club Omen, he grew up quickly at an early age being one of the most in demand DJ's around the globe. Now it's fall 2009 and he's taken the time to reflect on the past two decades spent DJing and producing. With his new full length Past & Present, Toni Rios seizes these years of experience and has successfully found a way to reflect his experiences, influences and moments in this momentous full length. Take the tune 'Can See Your Smile' with it's American tinged house flavor that rolls out in the most charming of ways. 'Ocean Drive' spurs the glory of yesterday's techno sound recalling the best moments of the great G-Man (ex-LFO). The soul of Ron Trent swings unconsciously in the midst of 'White Emotions' while Rios dives into his Spanish roots with the insatiable track 'Incapaz de Parar.' Toni Rios isn't all retro mind you, with 'L.A.D.T', 'A Rosa' and the roller 'Laura' he brings us dead center to today's unclassifiable modern state of creativity where techno and house has converged into a solid groove. An essential document of one of Germany's most beloved and longstanding dance producers."
