Tony Touch is one of the most influential mixtape DJs to ever do it, period. He easily ranks as one of the Top 5 most important DJs from the glory days of the New York City mixtape golden era. For years he has brought together some of the most talented MCs in the game and coaxed them into dropping some of the hottest verses of their careers. History was made on countless Tony Touch mixtapes throughout the 90s and early 2000s. I grew up on Tony’s mixtapes and there’s a good chance you did too. We caught up with him ahead of the July 9th release of his latest studio LP, The Piece Maker 3 to document some of the memorable mixtape moments in his mental archives.
