BIO

Titonton Duvante has long been a cult favourite of those who know for well over two decades. Hailing from Columbus in Ohio, his musical and heady sound has a certain kick to it that root you to the floor yet always help you arrive at your destination. With more than 25 years in the industry, he has kept himself at the forefront of the scene both as a DJ and producer, spearheading his Residual Recordings (formed in 1998) with acclaimed releases from himself and many other artists such as Boo Williams & John Tejada. Being a multi instrumentalist from a young age reflects in Duvante’s ever green sound, with a class that will never fade away. 

 

In the studio he has cooked up releases on a great deal of the vital labels out there, positioning himself where you dream to be when you start out as an artist. With over 50 releases to his name, Titonton is showing no signs in taking his foot off the gas. He is as productive as ever in 2019 with more lined up on a great variation of platforms - Julie Marghilano’s, Sol Asylum, Yay Recordings and Undefined to name a few. This year and next will see him casting a lot of attention to his Residual imprint, several records are already in the pipeline and in his hands. 

 

In the booth he is just as accomplished: his tight mixing and on point selections - as well as superb scratching skills - make for considered dance floor adventures that always get people deep into the groove. Old school yet firmly looking forward, he is a real master of his art who imbues everything he does with the sort of passion and knowledge that always stands him apart. Maintaining the rhythms of the past, and combining them with the fresh and unique flavours you will find in record stores of recent times.    

 

Busy as ever times for the Ohio based DJ, this year alone (2019) he has played much loved and critically acclaimed events like Freerotation in the UK, where he did a live PA, as well as places like Hot Mass in Pittsburgh, Queen! at Smart Bar in Chicago, special 20 years of Residual events in Tokyo and Osaka as well as clubs in Russia, San Fran and all round Europe with further tours of North America and Europe planned in the rest of 2019.
