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 the oldest to the 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. Soon after, he developed his passion for music as he studiously practiced mixing and scratching. By the time he was thirteen, he was already a seasoned DJ. He also took time to study the art of DJ’ing by listening to the greats, including Kid Capri, Funkmaster Flex and DJ Jazzy Jeff. Tom Joyner and Russell Simmons are also among DJ TouchTone’s influences.

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 talents 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 in just as much in demand as his hands. Currently blessing the city of Philadelphia on the airwaves of Radio One’s 100.3 WRNB, DJ TouchTone still makes time to make celebrity DJ appearances at some of the Tri-State’s hottest clubs and private events. In addition to Philly, TouchTone also spins for Cincinnati’s 100.3 RNB & Old School WOSL, Columbus’ Magic 95.5, Indianapolis’ 106.7 WTLC, Cleveland’s 93.1 WZAK, as well as, “Superadio” -- a nationally syndicated network.

DJ TouchTone has always been in demand for his ability, charisma and talents; his clientele boasts an impressive list of credits from prominent celebrities in the entertainment and sports industry, which includes P-Diddy, Rasheed Wallace and Will Smith who have all hired DJ TouchTone to DJ at their private events. DJ TouchTone has also been hired by well-known big-name corporations including Heineken, Comcast, Gillette and FOX Television. He has appeared on network television which include 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 also 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 on 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 then, he has been one of the top DJ’s on the cruise from 2013 to the present. Out of everything, one of DJ TouchTone’s fondest accomplishments was playing in London alongside super-producer Teddy Riley and Blackstreet in March of 2013.

Despite his blindness, DJ TouchTone has a distinctive characteristic that sets him a step above the rest. He is continuously exceeding the world’s expectations and overcoming many unknown obstacles. DJ TouchTone is now taking his career to a global level; determined to “Touch” all, as he stimulates senses and encourages everyone to feel the beat!
