Tito Torres shows
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.
