Anthony “The Twilite Tone” Khan is a BMI Award winning, Grammy-nominated producer, songwriter, and DJ.
Tone grew up in Chicago in the mid 80s and early 90s. Surrounded by the diverse range of sounds the city offered during that period, Tone embraced the abstract and the concrete, walking the line between deep house (Ron Hardy, Frankie Knuckles, Andre Hatchett, Lil Louis) and hip hop (Schoolly D, Divine Force, Sir Ibu, Ultramagnetic MCs).
He co-wrote 3 tracks on Kanye’s & GOOD Music’s Cruel Summer including the lead single “Mercy” which reached No.1 on Billboard’s US Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs and US Rap Songs Charts and went 2x Platinum, “Don’t Like.1”, and “The One”.
Tone contributed on the tracks “MILF” and “Mona Lisa” on Big Sean’s sophomore album, Hall Of Fame, released by GOOD Music and Def Jam Recordings.
He also co-wrote “Who Do We Think We Are” and “What If I Told You (Interlude)” on John Legend’s 2013 album Love Is The Future.
He’s currently working on projects with Common and Pusha T, among others.
