Roots
Anthony Maniscalco, or better known as Hook N Sling, is an Australian multiplatinum ARIA-nominated record producer, songwriter and DJ who currently resides in Los Angeles. He started out as a DJ playing house parties where he met a lot of people. It wasn’t until he bumped into a bar owner who was so into his music, he got offered his first gig playing at his venue. At this first gig, he immediately knew that being a DJ was what he wanted to do, and it then led him to producing as well.
Sounds
House, trance, electro
Where you might have heard him
2007 was a defining year for him as he received an ARIA Music Awards nomination. Touring relentlessly around Australia and Europe, he has played at numerous venues like Pacha and Space in Ibiza. In the festival circuit, he has performed at Global Gathering, Future Music Festival and Stereosonic. In 2011, he toured the USA and played with Wolfgang Gartner at the infamous Music Box in Los Angeles.
Notable tracks
“The Bump” scored him several plays by Pete Tong. In 2008, he mixed and compiled the gold-selling Ministry of Sound’s compilation titled Clubber’s Guide to 2008. In 2011, he claimed Hype Machine’s #1 with “Take You Higher” which gained over ten million plays on YouTube. A year later, he collaborated with NERVO for “Reason” which became a catch-cry anthem for the dance floor. In 2014, his single “Tokyo by Night” was released with a remix from Axwell. The remix gained support from Danny Howard and topped Beatport charts the week after its release. 2014 also saw him producing “Momentum” which was dubbed as ‘one of the most pivotal tracks of the year’ by Insomniac, giving him the top position in DMC World’s Buzz Chart.
Why see him
Hook N Sling’s ascent has been single-mindedly driven, and it is backed by meticulously crafted and ever-evolving productions. He has also been recognized as one of the most exciting genre-bending electronic producers to come on the scene in recent years. See him live at Sky Garden’s Skydome Superclub on June 10.
