Antonio Domingos, the Pianist Fighting Back

Antonio Domingos, lost everything. From having European orchestras inviting him to perform with them as a soloist; a new pad in a European capital on offer, to having it all crash down around him. His childhood dream was suddenly so far away. But he wasn’t going to accept that. Domingos is today recognised by Guinness Book of World Records for having achieved the most piano key hits in one minute (on one key).

Antiono’s world breaking performance can be seen here:

After a history of corruption, jealousy, and nepotism. He realised he can overcome it. He had something that could beat ‘every single pianist in the world’ at something that can be measured and recorded. Speed and endurance in piano playing. He fought to prove that he is not a pianist that can be forgotten. He has his own style and his own place in the world of music and he will continue to fight for his right to perfom.

A Welcome Short Sharp Scratch from Jak Chantler

 

If you can expect quality new music from anyone today, Jak Chantler is certainly someone you can trust. Cutting his teeth in the alt-grunge band ‘Kingskin’ and tipped as Kerrang’s “best new unsigned band”, Chantler is changing his musical direction and the change is more than welcome.

His new single ‘Shell Suit’, crafted by him and producer George Shilling is a joyous dance through a world of sunlight and soul that calls on the old school funk vibes of Chic and Chaka Khan. The groove and feel of the song is undeniable and the lyrics talk of love and life in a nuanced and poetic manner that will tug at the heartstrings of any human being that knows what it is to dive head first into love.

As the ultimate combination of songwriter/producer, Jak is perceptively aware of the current trends in this contemporary age of music where there is so much choice. The new project seemingly has no limits as he aims to meet the demands of the savvy modern day listener.

Missed the Bowie train?

David Bowie has been instrumental to many through out all areas of their lives. However, not everyone caught the man in time. Fortunately he lives on through his music and you can still have a listen and discover a new side of bowie you connect with.

Roughly Recommended’s suggestion is “Lodger”.

The album shows how Bowie absorbs whatever culture he’s around and brings them to life through sounds and lyrics. You can stream the entire album on Youtube here:

The album, released in 1979, is part of the infamous Berlin Trilogy and a severely underrated release from Mr Jones.  Boys Keep Swinging was a hit for Bowie from the album at the time but in the modern age his song Heroes from that album has become well known thanks to the film The Perks Of Being A Wallflower.

Nina Jones with new cover single ‘Purple Rain’

Nina’s new single is a cover version of the iconic Prince track ‘Purple Rain’ – one of the songs that saw Prince become a memorable name in the 1980s. Nina Jones is hoping her version of the song may go some way to doing the same for her with its UK release, bringing the track back to basics to share her superb vocals.
