Tony started off his career as a producer and disk jockey at his tender age. He spent hours on his brother’s Playstation creating sounds on Music 2000, this inspired him to study music technology for real at college. Always attracted to the dirtier sides of music, whatever the genre, he was caught off guard by Rusko’s upbeat style on hearing ‘FabricLive 37’ and became instantly hooked. He began to make dubstep-style tunes, random beats with a grime sound.
Cookie Monsta Mental Health Issues

He posted the update in an official statement released via his Facebook page in 2019.
Cookie wrote – “For the past year I’ve been struggling with mental health issues, over the recent weeks and months this has become harder than ever. I’ve not been online recently as I’ve been trying to work through my problems away from the glare of social media. Unfortunately, I’ve not made as much progress as I’d hoped, so I’ve decided that I need to take a longer break from the scene. With a heavy heart, I have to tell you that I’ll not be performing at any of my forthcoming shows, including my appearances on the Circus 10 Years Tour. I will continue making and releasing music, beyond that I look forward to being back out to see you soon when I’m better.”
