Allegedly the first man in Miami to have Space Invaders hooked up in his glove compartment, Pretty Tony Butler produced the Miami teen electro of Debbie Deb, Trinere, and Freestyle's "Don't Stop The Rock" (which introduced the word "freakathon" and was recently used to sell Cadbury chocolate.) "Jam The Box" returned Tony to his commander nerd self, inspired by the pirate radio frequencies that broadcast early Miami hip-hop. ("Jam the Box" also flirts with vocoder speech compression, but that's another story.) As the main producer at Music Specialist Studios in Little Haiti, Butler would spend hours breaking bottles out back—refining that tinkle separation.
