John Waters or Hard Ton?

I was so glad today, first of all I woke up feeling so much better from my long lasting flu (hence my five-day absence) and in our inbox we got an email about this disco queen and John Waters character of the 21st century from Venice; Hard Ton on Gigolo Records. I'm a big fan of early acid house and Giorgio Moroder so this guy is a very nice discovery for me.

Yes, it's the artist himself impersonating famous cover of Grace Jones album Island Life for his EP "Hard Ton" and their music is inspired by Duran Duran, Justus Koehncke, Giorgio Moroder, Terre Thaemlitz, Madonna and early acid house, well I don't care I just listen to their wonderful sound made by using, exclusively, analogue and vintage gear from the 303, 606, 707, Oberheim DMX, Korg Monopoly, MS20...


If you wanna hear more from Hard Ton just check out his MySpace or wait for the EP "Hard Ton" coming out 15th of march. Meanwhile check out this amazing video for "Earthquake":

The artwork is imitating Grace Jones' Island Life, which Amber Rose, Kanye West's girlfriend recreated recently...
