Legendary DJ Tony Moran brings the sound to Octane Party at Fantasy Nightclub

Chicago, IL — He is one of the most successful dance artists of all-time, and on Saturday night, Sept. 9, Tony Moran was back in Chicago as the DJ for the monthly Octane Party from SKIN Productions.

More than 400 attended the late-night dance party, held at Fantasy Nightclub in Boystown.

Moran is a two-time Grammy-nominated remixer/producer/singer-songwriter and DJ, known for remixing popular songs.  He posed for selfies with many attendees and signed a poster for one longtime fan.

"It has been a very cool journey for me; life has moved so fast that I rarely notice how much I've (accomplished)," Moran told  "I feel blessed and humbled to have the opportunities still out there to express myself.

"Mostly, I am a songwriter and a music producer.  I am totally hands-on.  My greatest passion is to record the artists, male or female, and discover a way to bring out the most in a song.  It can be a lot of pressure when some of these artists are Celine Dion, Cher, Luther Vandross and Deborah Cox.  You (have) to step it up every time, and I think that is why I've produced so many people."

Moran has a career filled with singles, remixes, albums and more.

This Octane Party featured high-energy music, energy-filled dancers and fan-smacking aficionados, too.  The event was a benefit to support the Lakeview Pantry.

The next Octane Party is Saturday, Oct. 14, featuring DJ Dani Toro, at Fantasy Nightclub.
