One of the men who has been instrumental in the career of producer and DJ Chris Diodati has passed away.
Indie music pioneer Henry Stone, who has been a fixture in the record industry for decades, passed away last week in South Florida. He was 93.
Stone was a leading promoter, manufacturer, and distributor of independent music for decades. In the 1970s he led TK Records, the label that brought George McCrae’s ‘Rock Your Baby’ to audiences.
Even in his later years, Stone was a leader in the music industry. He counted many music legends among his friends, and was still influencing a new generation of musical talent. Producer Chris Diodati has cited Henry Stone as his inspiration for coming to South Florida and launching his own career in the music business. Diodati has fortunate enough to work with the legendary Stone at HOT Production to create ‘Dio & Stone vs. James Brown,’ which climbed the Billboard dance charts to #6.
Diodati has landed a Juno Award nomination from the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) for his remix of Ray Charles’ Walkin’ and Talkin’, and he has also worked with the sounds of contemporary artists like Alicia Keys, Mary J. Blige, and Deborah Cox.
Diodai is also a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP). He is also a member of the Society of Composers, Authors, and Music Publishers of Canada (SOCAN), and the Canadian Musical Reproduction Rights Agency, Ltd. (CMRRA).
‘Catch the Rhythm’ is the latest single from noted producer and DJ Chris Diodati, who has built a reputation on bringing the hottest sounds to dance floors and clubs in the United States and Europe.
The Nu Disco sound has already been generating excitement on both sides of the Atlantic. The new sound is drawing people into the clubs and onto the dance floor with driving beats and new grooves for a new audience.
‘Catch the Rhythm’ is an exciting addition to the Nu Disco sound, and it is already available on iTunes and on dance floors everywhere. It is part of the new sound that is defining this Nu Disco vibe.
