BOOM! is the brainchild of Dominic Roy King – his dance alter-ego shall we say. He has always enjoyed music with groove, as his songwriting proves over the years.
One half of a very successful songwriting duo alongside Cambridge University buddy and dear friend Frank Musker, the pair’s songs have been picked up by artists such as Bette Midler (Married Men), Sister Sledge (Thank You For The Party), Cher (Back On The Street Again), The Three Degrees (My Simple Heart and A Woman In Love), KC & The Sunshine Band (Something’s Happening Tonight and Sway), The Who’s Roger Daltrey (Milk Train), The Babys (Back On My Feet Again), Chaka Khan (Fate and Best In The West), Stardust (Music Sounds Better With You), Sheena Easton (Modern Girl and a song Dominic wrote with Florrie Palmer called When He Shines, which was nominated for best lyric at The Ivors).
The cherry on the cake was Dominic & Frank’s song for Air Supply, Every Woman In The World, which scored a BMI 2 million play award and has sold around 7 million copies.
Now, King’s latest project is writing music and organising parties under the alias BOOM! Let’s find out more!
BOOM! Online Dance Parties
Headlining BOOM!’s recent event on August 22nd, was the ever in-demand ‘Purple Disco Machine’, an International DJ, producer and remixer who has been on a whirlwind of a musical journey since the 2009 conception of his highly successful disco house music project. He has racked up millions of streams on digital platforms including Spotify. A perfect choice for a BOOM! headline act, with his disco sensibilities and mesh of mellow and uplifting house music.
BOOM! Online Dance Parties was founded by music industry legend – songwriter Dominic Roy King. He has been releasing dance music under the alias BOOM! for the past year, including the top ten dance hit ‘Lockdown’. Now, BOOM! has also shifted towards being an online party collective gifting us with gigs from some of the hottest names on the scene right now. King has teamed up with party hosts and organisers Roxy Deniz Ozalp of Morning Gloryville and Iona McNeil of Sparkle Verse/Burning Man, to bring us an event filled to the brim with incredible music, outrageous amounts of glitter and, if you’re lucky, sensational prizes.
Last Saturday’s event saw up-and-coming duo Moodbay knock it out of the park with their latest dance hit ‘I Got You’, as well as killer DJ sets from Caz Coronel and Syreeta, and a soul-sational performance from Matthew Winchester of Cool Million, singing a new remix of ‘Keep On’ from the band’s number one soul album ‘Stronger’. 3 hours of non-stop music, also accompanied by the stunning outfits and sensational dance routines of Crystal Danielle, this was well and truly a night to remember!
