Growth can be defined as something that is increasing in value and or importance. For Melbourne based house music producer/DJ Anthony Agostino aka. Right-O, growth is always something that is front of mind.
Growing his project at an intense rate over 2017 / 2018 the now 25 year old artist / business man has had major success with his record titled Skyfall smashing past the goal of 1 million streams on Spotify. Additionally some of his other notable records such as Mind Control & First Time have been seen charting highly on the Australian Viral Top 50 and entering the US Itunes Chart, as well as New Music Friday & Monster Dance hits. Now a fully fledged solo artist Anthony has been able to draw upon the inspirations that made him fall in love with dance music to boost his profile dramatically. His Spotify playlist Bus Stop (Dance Classics) is a weekend party starter for anyone who found any joy from early 2000’s dance.
“Going solo allowed me to go back to my roots and re-discover all the music that I loved as a year 7 walking to the bus stop blasting the Ministry of Sound Annual out of my iPod nano”.
Recently signing to Lucky Entertainment for all DJ bookings has seen Right-O perform all over the east coast of Australia, and touring heavily across Sydney, and rural NSW. His signature sets are filled with the latest forms of house music while spicing things up very energetically with the classics that are always sure to get the club rooms moving.
This now seasoned selector has repurposed his vision to not only create and release his own music, but help others guide their visions into life. Fostering a new creative agency devoted to the development of young independent artist called Cartel Management Australia. Anthony alongside his manager / business partner Christina Rinaldi are creating a community culture teaching the new breed of artist about the industry, and how to raise awareness of their brand in a overly saturated market.
“Cartel started because of Right-O, the experiences we’ve had over the past 6 years have gotten us to the point where we feel really comfortable to really help artist’s that are super passionate about the creation of the music and want to see it do well. Targeting the same artist’s that struggle to understand the process of releasing music and what it means for their project. This is a process I am really passionate about and want to do more of.”
This project has quietly ticked over the past 6 years to turn into a well oiled machine constantly presenting growth and will continue to do so in 2019.
