CME Xkey Controller Keyboard

CME Xkey Controller Keyboard

Is this the world’s most portable keyboard? I first saw the Xkey online a few months ago and was dying to try one out. Since first spotting it, I’ve launched a keyboard website and have now had the pleasure of trying and reviewing it. Absolutely love the portability of this keyboard and am really excited about checking out the new bluetooth version hooked up to my iphone apps! Here’s a little of what it does, more videos to follow 🙂

You can read my review and see more info on it at Keyboardist.co.uk

Canned Heat Cover

OK, so you know how much I love ‘The Funk’ and vowed to cover some favourite tracks for the sheer fun of it. Here’s one from a little while back that was programmed up using Logic Pro X and with an awesome contribution from epic bassist friend Gaz Rackham. Video on iPad as I didn’t have hi-res back then! 🙂 x

Dreaming Of The Stars

Dreaming Of The Stars

My second track for Mythology Music. This started as a relaxation project but somehow the first release is turning into a space music project! Actually I’ve always loved sci-fi music and while I’m enjoying working on these tracks, I’m looking forward to doing something a lot more cinematic later on.

All tracks will appear at mythologymusic.com and will be released to download stores once the whole project is complete.

Finally taken charge of my YouTube channel and came across some lovely comments that I didn’t even know were there, thank-you guys!!!

Journey To The Stars

Journey To The Stars

So I decided earlier this year that I wanted to produce a few more instrumentals – some cinematic music, relaxation, library music, etc. – and for this I needed a new brand name to release under. After much brainstorming and domain name searching I finally came up with a name that is just perfect – Mythology Music!

The first track is now uploaded at www.mythologymusic.com and YouTube, do have a listen 🙂

International Jazz Day

International Jazz Day

Happy #InternationalJazzDay folks! As I often say, we all go to Jazz in the end. Some of us start there too…

Here’s my own little rendition of Black Coffee. Will be brushing up on the jazz chops over the coming year x

Dance Tracks

Dance Tracks

My early career and first label signing was primarily for funky dance music. Sadly it didn’t come to fruition as is often the way with record deals and I have a lot of dance tracks written but never developed. So I’m gradually working through the tracks to bring them up to date with a funk touch so that they don’t go to waste.

In the meantime here’s an Evelyn ‘Champagne’ King cover that we turned out. Apparently we got quite a bit of airplay in the clubs that Summer – if only it had been released! x
