As part of Konkret Finn (the first German battlecrew) along with his former partner lz, he was one of the inventors of German battle rap. After "Konkret Finn" broke up, Tone considered starting a solo career and was featured on songs of artists such as Azad, the Brothers Keepers, Curse, D-Flame, J-Luv, Killa Hakan, Melbeatz, Samy Deluxe, the Stieber Twins and Roey Marquis II. His solo breakthrough came in 2004, when he formed "Fourtress" with Bintia and Billy Davis and toured all over Germany.
One year later, he was featured on German star Xavier Naidoo's release "Bist du am Leben interessiert?", and also released his first solo album, "Zukunftsmusik". (2) With her abstract break beats, fragile voice and mesmerizing lyrics, female artist Tone has found an impressive outlet for her inner musical strengths, creating experimental ambient electronica sounds ranging from uplifting moods to bleak shades of melancholy. Musically, Tone - who carries the civil name Sofie Nielsen - creates a remarkable audiovisual realm in which her light and spell-binding voice adds to a bedrock of crunchy break beats, abstract compositional structures and melodic sounds and samples. Not being a typical songwriter in terms of clinging to the usage of the traditional structure of verses and choruses, Tone relies on improvisation and creative exploration in the creation of her unpredictable musical landscapes - while adding daunting, yet compelling lyrics - and thereby drawing listeners into her musical and atmospheric universe of thoughts, sounds and a myriad of emotional expressions.
Tone's live performance is a spectacular experience. Accompanied by VJ Kristian Ravn Ellestad, the two blend together in an audiovisual symbiosis accentuating the moods of Tone's emotionally charged music. Tone and Kristian have cooperated in making small individual movie loops to each of her tracks, adding coherency and an abstract kind of storytelling to the performance. Tone is signed to Urlyd, an independent Danish record label.Make Tone Playlist
