Up and Coming DJ Anthony Sorella Making Big Moves
Interview With Anthony Sorella
Tell us a Little Bit About Yourself
My name is Anthony “Chuckie” Sorella and I’m an inventive nightlife artist of Toronto. Having always had an entrepreneurial spirit, I got into music later in my hustling career. Inspired by the people I pulled into the clubs, I wanted to create something just for them. Something you can listen to that isn’t totally hyped but doesn’t end the party even when the club is closed. I don’t write lyrics just beats and I don’t really go into deep dark stuff. I like to keep things lifted and happy so can’t say I’ve written anything that was hard to. Pretty much just want people to vibe with my music.
Do You Have Any New music on the Way?
My next project is “P4r7y d0nt St4hp” and it is the premier after hours album for party hustlers who just aren’t done for the night. It incorporates all the best beats from your nightlife DJ but at a more relaxed level so you can start to wind down without ending the party. As someone who is well known in the nightlife and party scene in Toronto I believe that this album will hit hard with the people who I’ve made connections with. This album will be full of late night whined down.
Who inspires you the most musically?
Who inspires me most musically is Afterhours rockstars. The people who are constantly looking for a party even after the clubs close and its 4am with the sun coming up. I love those people. Party for hours and still have energy for more. I’d love to create a whole album dedicated to them.
What is the most challenging thing you have overcome in your life?
I think the most challenging thing was going against what my parents wanted for me and not accepting a scholarship to university and going into business for myself. I knew that I didn’t want to live an ordinary life and the only way to not do that was to chase my dreams. It was tough to put my parents through that as they didn’t really understand why I wouldn’t take a scholarship, but I think they’re starting to understand now. They were so scared for me and I love my parents, it hurt to see them so stressed but it was also a blessing because it held me super accountable for my actions.
