The Music Industry Raw Pirates, Clubs, House and Garage


    What you will go onto read is a part biography, part dissection and part educational book that start's at the very beginning with a young boy who was inspired by London, family life, football and world music, a love that nearly ended in a long term prison sentence. Fortunately not only Tony, but the many that went on to succeed because of his drive and direction, he was given another chance, this turned into his sliding doors effect, and not only did it change his life but the lives of many others. Creator of a leading London record label and manager for one of the pioneering acts over the past decade, Tony Portelli 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. So what has been written within these pages, a first of its kind from a genre, is probably the most contentious behind the scene's book ever written about the Music Industry.
