Chase Direct – The UK’s Number One Digital Piano Retailer

Chase Direct is Britain’s Number One Digital Piano Retailer

Chase Direct was founded back in 1978 by musician Amrik Singh, and from the very beginning it was clear that the company was destined to be something big. The speciality was originally based on and around synthesisers and electric organs which were all the rage back in the 70s and 80s and proved to be incredibly popular! Throughout the years, Chase Music was the biggest synthesiser retailer in the country and produced a number of award winning models that were favoured by the stars of the day (including Queen, Madness, Bad Company, and Kate Bush to name just a few). There were Chase Direct shops scattered across the country so you were never more than a stone’s throw away from your nearest synthesiser and organ retailer!

Siel Synth from Chase!

FRANKFURT REVIEW

SIEL DK70

-Chase stole the show, and here’s why:-

As the second half of yesterday’s post, here is another archived advert for the Siel DK70 from the highly successful 1986 Frankfurt review from Chase Music. Chase’s main speciality back in the 1980s was synthesizers and this is a perfect example of one. As it has been stated many times before, although Chase now specialises in digital pianos and portable keyboards, there are a whole range of electronic pianos with features not dissimilar to those of the synths that Chase used to sell, for example the Chase P40! Like back in the 80s, Chase Music still has a showroom where you can come and try a whole range of excellent digital pianos from a range of brands!!

Marc Anthony – Building The Salsa Empire

Marc Anthony of the old order knew that Rome wasn’t built in a day. Similarly, Marc Anthony, present day singer-songwriter and leader of a new Salsa School Of Thought also knows it takes time to rule the world. Whilst the former is a soldier of historic significance, the latter is working to build a musical empire around his Latino roots. In both English and his native Hispanic tongue Marc Anthony has formulated a repertoire of torrid Salsa tracks that embrace a diverse trio of Latino, Pop and R&B. ‘’I Need To Know’’, released in 1999 is one such single that exemplifies the success of these crossover genres to produce a danceable composition that enchants the generations. Together with the line-up that includes violin, digital piano and indigenous percussion this indulgent affair has us all in raptures and Marc Anthony ruling the Salsa Empire wearing little more than a sache.Marc Anthony – Building The Salsa Empire Continue reading “Marc Anthony – Building The Salsa Empire”
