Anthony Fields AKA Tone B. Nimble, has been a vital entity on the music scene for over 30 years. His calling started in the mid-1980’s as a DJ spinning House, Disco, and Italo in Chicago’s flourishing underground scene.

In 2011, Tone started Al-Tone Edits with partner Al Bumz, a disco edit label devoted to featuring lesser known Soul, Disco, and Gospel tunes with support from the likes of Gilles Peterson, Detroit Swindle, Sadar Bahar, Hunee and many others.

Al-Tone Edits is regarded as a label for Disco savants. Nine volumes deep, Al-Tone Edits continues to grow in exposure, while opening doors for the duo. More recently Tone is building a the “Soul Is My Salvation” brand. Including the continuation of the cassette series, releasing official Gospel re-issues, and the launch of a gospel oriented event entitled “Rejoice”. Growing up in the black church, Tone always admired the skill level of the musicians that backed the choirs and incredible vocalists that go virtually unknown.
