Tony Garcia

Real Name:
Anthony Garcia
Profile:
Freestyle producer, songwriter, and founder of High Power Records, TG Records Inc., and Funky Melody Records. Brother of Mickey Garcia.
.
Although both were active in NYC around the same time, this Tony is not the same person as Tony Garcia (6) (of Tweak! Records), who has many remix credits in the synth-pop & dance rock genres.

Tony Garcia started as a street DJ in NYC in the late 1970s. In 1983 he released his first track, "Can't Get Enough Of You" by Wickett, for Mr. T Records.
In 1986 he founded High Power Records, where he launched the careers of several well-known Freestyle artists such as Peter Fontaine, Reinald-O, Wickett and N.V.. In 1990, High Power Records secured a distribution deal with Warlock Records.
Tony Garcia is best known for his 1991 hit "Take Me In Your Arms" by Lil' Suzy, and during the freestyle resurgence of the mid-1990s, High Power Records scored minor hits with Natalie/Angelique. During this period, Garcia reused the "Planet Rock" loop on nearly every song he produced. He called this "Funky Melody Freestyle".
In 1995, Garcia teamed up with his brother's former partner, Elvin Molina, and created two subsidiaries for Metropolitan Recording Corp.: T.G. Records and Funky Melody Records. This new project was a return to form for Tony Garcia. "Planet Rock" was all but abandoned for a more traditional sound on the T.G./Funky Melody releases.

In the late 1990s, High Power's relationship with Warlock Records came to an end and became a self-distributed independent label once again. Tony Garcia began remixing and re-releasing the High Power, T.G. and Funky Melody Records catalog. He also began re-recording his songs with new vocalists.
More recently, Tony Garcia has been involved with freestyle concerts in Brazil. On stage, Tony pretends to play keyboards while an unknown singer performs High Power Records hits under the name "Reinald-O"—he is not the original Reinald-O, however.
