Don’t Ever Stop: Tony De Vit

In the 90s – the most explosive era in dance music history – one of the world’s best DJs meets a child prodigy. When the master suddenly dies in 1998, his 17 year old apprentice Fergie is thrust into the global spotlight. A story of tragedy, ecstasy, music and mayhem. Tony De Vit. Don’t Ever Stop.


The ‘Godfather of Hard House’ was born in Kidderminster and dedicated his life to electronic music, regarded as trail-blazer in the gay community as well as bringing high energy dance music to the masses in the 90s. He produced and remixed his own style of music that inspired an entire genre following his tragic death in 1998. 25 years on, his music is still filling dance-floors and being given new remixes by the worlds best young DJs.


The film stars Tony’s mentee, DJ Fergie as well as world famous DJs, Eats Everything, Judge Jules and Danny Ramping.

The documentary was an Official Selection at the world renowned “BFI Flare” Festival 2024. The UKs largest LGBTQIA+ film festival, which celebrates queer cinema from across the world. Running screenings of the film across the final week of the festival, “Don’t Ever Stop” played to sold out audiences at the world-famous BFI Southbank. There are more festivals in the pipeline for the film, as momentum builds from fantastic reviews being given.

“This is a profoundly moving tale of hard beats, heavy iving, ecstasy and the continuing legacy of the late great DJ”. Brian Robinson, Programmer at BFI.
