Oneduo Out With Another Club Banger!!

ONEDUO fuses melodic and powerful elements with a unique and uplifting twist to create a timeless and inspiring sound. They are two young men with a passion for music, and their love for producing and songwriting will allow for great success in the years to come. They recently released a club banger entitled “Cross My Heart” and graced us with this phenominal interview below: check it out:

 

Q: Can you please tell our readers your real names? What is the meaning behind your stage name ONEDUO?
A: Mike Scimeca & Steve Georgilis! ONEDUO is a representation of two individuals coming together as a duo uniting people together as one through music. We feel that music is a gateway to so many incredible feelings in addition to the many personal relationships that are built and strengthened through it. That’s what we strive to achieve with our music 🙂

 

Q: Where are you from and Where were you based?
A: We are from New York & both still live here! New York Souls.

 

Q: At What age did you start making music?
A: Mike: I started at a young age, I got my first guitar when I was 5 and have been obsessed ever since.

Steve: I grew up playing the cello until I was 17, but I actually started music production when we started ONEDUO a little over six years ago.

 

Q: What genre of music do you love? and what genre would you consider yourself?
A: Mike: I have a love for almost every genre, it really depends on my mood! I think I’d consider us Dance pop/ Future Bass! – But also, I don’t like to identify with any genre because then you’re sort of stuck in a box, I like to freely create and just see what comes out of it.

Steve: I’m always listening to different genres of music to take particular elements into our own music, but of course dance music is my passion! Like Mike said before, it’s hard to narrow your music down to a specific genre but if I had to pinpoint one I’d say for sure Dance pop/ Future Bass!

 

Q: Tell us about your latest track “Cross My Heart” (what is it all about)—-Please explain the concept or message behind it:

A: This record means so much to us. It’s about falling in love and not knowing how to act, ruining something before it even had the chance to flourish because you’re not wise enough to understand what you have. But also understanding the fact that even though you may still think of that person and always have love for them, it’s not where either of you belong. At least in this life time..

 

Q: Who wrote it? Do you guys write and produce your own music?
A:. We wrote it along with Ria Lucia! – We write and produce all of our stuff ourselves, as we feel it has more of a meaning when it’s coming from us. We’re able to get more attached on a mental and emotional level.

 

Q: Whats next for ONEDUO?
A: So much stuff coming. We just released our new symbol on Jan. 1st, going to be releasing some new merch with it! Along with a LOT of new music, and a lot of new tunes with Mike’s vocal on it!

 

Q: We love your Chainsmokers remix, do you guys plan on doing more remixes in 2019?
A: Thank you, and yes! We love doing remixes. It’s always fun to put your own twist on records that you can identify with! A lot of new remixes coming for 2019!

 

Q: If you were given a chance, which Artist would you love to work with?
A: Mike: Avril Lavigne! Shes always my go to answer for this question, she was my childhood crush haha and I’ve always loved her music!

Steve: Honestly I’d love to work with Ariana Grande, I think she’s such a beautiful soul and she’s super talented!

Super Talent Award Winner/Singer Songwriter & Performer”CHRISTIAN BAKOTESSA”

Has this been the case in the casting show “Das Super talent? Since a man is invited to a break entertainment on the Super talent 2012 stage by the jury to the performance! Christian just wanted to accompany his girlfriend Martina to the casting for “Das Super talent 2012”. But when he briefly sings on stage during a break, he immediately notices Dieter Bohlen, Michelle Hunziker and Thomas Gottschalk. When the appearance of his girlfriend Martine falls on the jury and then lands as a candidate in “Das Super talent 2012” !.

According to RTL, Christian is the full name of Pierre Christian Bakotessa Kobolo and wanted to support his girlfriend in the casting, because the 22-year-old has a great voice, but has a little too many pounds. Therefore Christian wanted to accompany his girlfriend as a moral support to the casting. During a short casting break, Christian then goes to the Super talent 2012 stage and sings very sensitively the song “I Believe I Can Fly”. The demanding Pop titan hears the voice on the Super talent stage and says, according to RTL.de, among other things: “Much better than anything else I hear here in the breaks …”

Convinced Christian in today’s record for the next round at “Das Super talent 2012”? And what happened to his girlfriend Martina in the casting? One learns this among other things starting from 20.15 o’clock on the television station RTL with “Das Super talent 2012” and in the Internet in the Livestream in the Super Talent INSIDE range wit

From the audience directly into the semi-finals
In the fourth show of “Das Super talent” 2012 Christian Bakotessa surprised both the audience and the jury with a spontaneous performance. The hobby singer is actually only in the studio to keep his fingers crossed for his girlfriend on her appearance. During the break, Christian is brought on stage and inspires everyone with his unplanned vocal insert. After his successful interpretation of R. Kelly’s hit “I Believe I Can Fly” there are standing ovations from the audience and the “Golden Buzzer” by Dieter Bohlen. Christian Bakotessa makes it directly into the semi-finals of “Das Super talent” 2012.

Martina Kilic and Christian Bakotessa are a couple and sing together in a gospel choir. Martina wants to take advantage of her chance in “Das Supertalent” 2012 and convince the jury with “Greatest Love Of All” by Whitney Houston. As support her friend Christian Bakotessa came along. When a talent is sought in the audience during the break of the show’s recording, Christian answers and shows off his skills. Dieter Bohlen is immediately enthusiastic and sends the singer backstage. After girlfriend Martina Kilic could not inspire her appearance, it is Christian’s turn.

With “I Believe I Can Fly” by R. Kelly scores Christian Bakotessa all along the line. While the audience and Michelle Hunziker give standing ovations, Dieter Bohlen presses the “Golden Buzzer” and immediately promoted Christian to the semi-finals of “Das Super talent 2012.” You sang almost as well as R. Kelly, “praises the Poptitan, Thomas too Gottschalk is blown away: “You are in the truest sense of the word a natural talent. With you you realize that you do not sing because you want to become famous. You do not sing because you want to be a star. You sing because you can sing and because you want to sing. ”

Come “Ride Or Die” With BEEA

The “Ride or Die” Video will remind you of Bonny and Clyde except in this version, Clyde decides to run off and ditch Bonny. But the music will have you crying and feeling sorry for all those lovers who have been ditched or dumped.
BEEA did a wonderful acting job in this video and did a great job in the singing of the song as well. No  wonder why the video has over 22,000 views on youtube and steady climbing…

 

This California based but Brazilian born singing Goddess started performing on stage at age 5 and has been going ever since then.

She grew up listening to the big pop soul divas icons such as Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton, Celine Dion, Lara Fabian, Aretha Franklin and the new generation singers like Joss Stone, Beyonce, Leona Lewis and Sam Bailey

According to BEEA “I did not chose to be a musician, the music chose me. But even if I could have a chance to chose it, I’d probably do it, over and over again. My connection with singing is almost spiritual, it is my direct contact with God, or the universe, subconscious mind, quantum force, different terms for the same single power. At the moment I am singing, the pieces I am made of become a whole.”

Overall, her music, words and actions are defined by projecting a message of strength and resilience, to those who are struggling in life with all its dramas, challenges and setbacks. Her evident passionate personality is very well reflected in her music.
Tune into TIDE Televison station here in Hamburg, Germany to watch this Brazilian Diva grace our weekly show “Topafric Music Video Countdown”. It airs every mondays at 10pm German time and Saturdays at 1 am.
