My latest song with Janis Kay 'Feeling's Getting Strong' has just been released internationally on all main music download stores.

My original mix (Exhibit Mix) is in a dance/disco/funky pop style and features top jazz musician William South on bass.

There is also a great contemporary remix by Ripper Productions.

Janis Kay has been touring clubs and schools in the UK to promote the song and receiving great feedback.















July  2009

I have just released two compilation albums of music on iTunes and other music download sites such as Amazon. (to buy music search 'Richard Amos' on websites or click thumbnail links on the homepage).

The first album 'Eclectic: Retrospective' is a compilation of music from earlier albums previously only available on CD and some older previously unreleased material such as 'Piano Improvisation 1986'.
There is a wide mix of styles from classic electronic, dance and new age etc.


























The second album 'Private Cafe' is more recent material. The album is a mix of music I have produced for media films. Some of the music has been re-worked and re-produced. The music falls into chill out and down tempo electronica categories.


I am also busy working with Janis Kay. We are releasing and promoting 'Feelings Getting Strong' in July with several top remixes.

Also, Ripper Productions (www.myspace.com/ripperproductions) have just done a top remix of 'Real' my Evolve song with Niki Mak '.

More news and samples to follow.
