2011 Tesla Motors Model S-Alpha Commercial Remix By Classic Tone
Anthony "Classic Tone" Espanet is a Consultant, Humanitarian, Music Producer, Writer, and Vegetarian, born on August 19th 1985, Queens, NY. He was raised in various parts of Nassau County, NY, which gave him a diverse outlook on life, as diverse as his sound and ethnicity. Musically born to the industry as a hip hop baby, his father was the only Latino member "ATA" of one of Hip Hop's most controversial named rap group, Young Black Teenagers (Best known for "Tap The Botttle"). The group was controversial by the name due to the fact no member was physically dark skinned (consistently forgotten there was a Latino member), although clarified by their philosophy.
Music has followed Tone from the time of his birth, yet his awakening didn't come till high school. At the age of 16 he found his passion for Hip Hop culture through his Technique turn-tables and spoken word poetry. The same year he entered a class at his high school, electronic music. Here he received his introduction by his teacher to Propeller Head's Reason music application, changing his life forever, in the art of production. With his high school friends, together they formed their production team titled the "Beat Kings", although still remaining close friends it remained his introduction to the craft. At the age of 18 his close friend and mentor Prince Aka <a href="http://ginogreenglobal.com/">Gino Green</a>, opened his mind and provided him the tools to realize his innate knowledge of self. This is the point of his life that became both the pursuit of music and study of all forms of truth.
