About Tony Seltzer

Formerly working as gothic trap producer Yung Gutted, Tony Seltzer rose to prominence as a key producer for artists like Wiki and Princess Nokia. Alongside his extensive production catalog, Seltzer released three collaborative mixtapes of his own: in the late 2010s, he dropped Heat Check and Heat Check Vol. 2 with WiFiGawd and Avenues alongside A Lau. Hailing from Brooklyn, producer Tony Seltzer started his career under the name Yung Gutted, releasing ominous, horror-inspired trap on early tapes like INTERNET GRAVEYARD, VOL. 1 (2012) and INTERNET GRAVEYARD, VOL. 2 (2013). The producer soon linked up with Brooklyn rapper and former RATKING member Wiki, producing one of the tracks for his solo debut, Lil Me. After dropping a third volume of the INTERNET GRAVEYARD series in May 2016, the producer retired the Gutted alias to work as Tony Seltzer, posting "RIP YUNG GUTTED, TONY SELTZER UP NEXT" to his social media profiles. Under the Tony Seltzer moniker, the musician's productions grew in scope and variety. In addition to working extensively with Wiki on his 2017 album No Mountains in Manhattan, Seltzer collaborated on singles with artists varying from Squidnice to MIKE, dipping into trap and the N.Y.C. revivalist scene. In 2018, he worked heavily with Princess Nokia on the EP A Girl Cried Red before dropping his first mixtape, Heat Check. A collaboration with D.C. rapper WiFiGawd, the tape saw Seltzer continue to expand on his woozy, electronic trap sound. During the following years, the musician was more productive than ever. In 2019, Seltzer worked heavily on Sneaks' Highway Hypnosis, Gabe 'Nandez's Diplomacy, and Wiki's OOFIE, while in 2020, he produced extensively for Princess Nokia's Everything Is Beautiful and dropped two collaborative tapes of his own (a second volume of Heat Check and Avenues, a joint tape with A Lau). This period continued Seltzer's exploration of trap, along with ventures into Brooklyn drill with Rah Swish and Leeky G Bando. ~ David Crone
