Holding rank as The World’s No. 1 Blind DJ, Anthony “DJ TouchTone” Stevenson was destined to master the art of mixing on the turntables through his divine ability to memorize various musical catalogues while skillfully and seamlessly spinning records from old to new. Mesmerizing crowds across the U.S. and abroad, TouchTone remains humble as he recalls his childhood and being confined to his home because of his disability. This situation proved to be fertile ground for the cultivation of a musical mastermind. He developed his passion for music as he studiously practiced mixing and scratching. By the age of 13, he was already respected as a seasoned DJ. He also took time to study the art of dj’ing by listening to the greats in the industry, such as Kid Capri, Funkmaster Flex and DJ Jazzy Jeff. Tom Joyner and Russell Simmons are also amongst DJ TouchTone’s top influences.
DJ TouchTone has always been in demand for his ability, charisma and talents. His clientele consists of prominent celebrities in the entertainment and sports industry, which include: P-Diddy, Rasheed Wallace and Will Smith, who have all hired DJ TouchTone to dj their private events. DJ TouchTone has also been hired by well-known corporations, including Heineken, Comcast, Gillette, Verizon and FOX Television. He has appeared on network television, including MTV’s “Making the Band”, BET’s (Black Entertainment Television) “Rap City – The Basement”, BET’s “106 and Park”, NBC 10 Morning News, 6 ABC Action Morning News, TV show “Visions” and Fox 29’s “Good Day Philadelphia”. DJ TouchTone has been well-covered in both The Source and XXL magazines. In 2007 and 2008, he received the top award, Club DJ of the Year. In 2012, he was the DJ for the Guinness book of world records longest Soul Train line in Philadelphia. Later that year in October, DJ TouchTone showcased his mixing skills nationally on The Tom Joyner Morning Show’s “Philly Skyshow” and was subsequently invited back in April 2013 to Joyner’s annual “Fantastic Voyage Cruise”. Since, he has been one of the top DJ’s on the cruise from 2013 to the present. One of DJ TouchTone’s fondest accomplishments was playing in London alongside super-producer Teddy Riley and Blackstreet in March of 2013.
Because of his undeniable ability, the nation’s top black-owned broadcasting company, Radio One recruited DJ TouchTone as a mixer, but soon after, realized that his talent could no longer hide “behind the mix” and offered him a promotion to a full-time on-air slot. He has shared memorable moments alongside Philly’s own “Lady B” where he has proven that his voice is just as much in demand as his hands. He is currently blessing the city of Philadelphia on the airwaves with the Hustle Home Mix at 5pm daily on the DL Hughley Show and weeknights from 7pm -12am on 100.3 WRNB. DJ TouchTone still makes time for appearances at some of Tri-State’s hottest clubs and private events.
