We caught up her by way of post card
Well, you might have not heard from me for a while, so here's an update for you...
I've recently returned from playing at Mannheim's "Bass Nights" in
Germany which was great fun. It's always a pleasure to play there as
I will shortly be starting a brand new weekly show on Cyprus' leading radiostation Dance FM. After doing pirate for so long its a pleasure to be on legal radio, but I do miss my Freeze listeners! There are guest appearances and other shows in the pipeline though, which I will let you know about in due course.
For now, my website has just had a complete redesign (www.annakiss.co.uk), and been updated with some audio. Bouncin Basslines is a mix of mine, up exclusively on an Australian website (www.straightup.com.au). There's also a live mix from my summer in Ayia Napa (featuring MC Flirta D with some classic & new UKG flava's), a recording of one of my Freeze shows (for any of my listeners that miss the shows!), and for the anti-garage crew, theres also an old Funky House mix I dug out. More House mixes very soon.
There is also a clip of my first journey into production "4ward March".
This shows that darker side I was on about before! I'm working on lots of varied bits-n-pieces at the moment and this page will now be continuously updated, so keep checking in!
I was asked to do an interview for a great site; it’s now up on:http://www.360-x.co.uk/a_page.php?pid=571. Check it out!

ITN is offering free use of its amazing archive, which contains over 700,000 hours of footage dating back from 1896 to the present day. All entrants need to do is prepare a pitch for a 3 minute documentary and submit it at www.britdoc.org. The four best ideas will be commissioned by Channel 4 and broadcast in its 3 Minute Wonder slot. The filmmakers will also receive a special free invitation to the first BRITDOC festival (26-28 July) where their films will be screened.
Peter Dale, Head of More4, said: “Nurturing and encouraging new talent is vital if we want Britain to continue to be the home of the brightest documentary talent, and this competition is a fantastic way of encouraging new filmmakers to get their films on air. The ITN archive provides a wonderful source of inspiration and I look forward to seeing some exciting and fresh ideas.”
The Music Industry Raw
Pirates, Clubs, House and Garage
By Tony Portelli
In a fascinating account of one of the world’s most complex business environments and one man’s journey through it, The Music Industry Raw is part biography, part dissection and part educational guide that follows a young boy who was inspired by London, family life, football and music – a love that nearly ended in a long-term prison sentence.
Fortunately Tony, like many who went on to succeed because of his drive and direction, was given another chance. That chance turned into his “sliding doors effect,” and had a direct and positive effect on his life and those of others.
“What has been written within these pages, a first of its kind from a genre, is probably the most contentious behind-the-scenes book ever penned about the music industry,” Tony says.
Within the book, Tony dissects such acts as The Streets, Ms Dynamite, So Solid, MJ Cole, Luck and Neat and many more. He explores why the “sexy and stylish scene went into free fall,” and where the music industry is today.
He also predicts the future hits from nu skool and takes readers behind the scenes at the awards ceremonies. Will the dot com revolution destroy or enhance the music industry? Tony offers his thoughts as he peruses “the 10 greatest UK house and garage records.”
An insightful and candid exposé on a multibillion-dollar system that was usurped by many of the performers it failed to assist, The Music Industry Raw pulls no punches. This is the backstage pass every serious music fan should not be without.
Tony Portelli is creator of a leading London record label and manager for one of the pioneering acts over the past decade. He became part creator of a genre of music that took inspiration and street culture and turned it into careers for many who also had a dream.

Nkrumah was the motivating force behind the movement for independence of Ghana, then British West Africa, and its first president when it became independent in 1957. His 1965 work Neocolonialism, the last stage of imperialism, shares with Che Guevara the credit for introducing the concept of “neocolonialism.”
