Kurt Darren se nuwe album ‘laat die dansvloer brand’

Vyftien jaar nadat Kurt Darren die Afrikaanse musiekmark gestormloop het, wéét die onbetwisbare koning van Afrikaanse dansmusiek steeds hoe om die planke behoorlik te laat wip.

Sy nuwe album, Laat Die Dansvloer Brand, bestaan uit 14 snitte wat daai fyn balans tussen lekker opskop-sokkie en rustig dans presies regkry.

Snitte soos Warrelwind se kind, Jy’s ’n legend, Fluit fluit, Gravitasie manipulasie en die titelsnit is by uitstek gerat vir ’n behoorlike skoffel, met ’n gesonde mengsel van pop, rock, ’n bietjie van ’n techno-ondertoon en ritmes met tonne skop wat dit duidelik maak dat dié album nie vir uitsitters of draadsitters gemaak is nie.

Lizandra Winter en Joshua Na Die Reën snoer kragte saam

Lizandra Winter en die alombekende Joshua na die Reën kom al ’n lang pad. Lizandra het voor sy haar selfgetitelde solo album gedurende 2017 uitgereik het, gereeld saam met hom opgetree. Hulle het ’n hegte vriendskap en hulle stemme komplementeer mekaar op ’n merkwaardige wyse.

Dié twee talentvolle sangers, wat ook ongelooflike musikante is, het kragte saamgesnoer en reik nou ’n hoendervleismooi weergawe van die Christa Steyn treffer, Ek wil vir jou, uit.

“Terwyl ek in 2015 op toer was saam met Jacques, het ons gesels oor legendes in die musiekbedryf en oor hoeveel kosbare liedjies deel vorm van die geskiedenis van Afrikaanse musiek. Ek wil vir jou was onder andere een van my gunstelinge en ek het genoem dat ek dit graag eendag sou wou opneem. Toe ek in 2016 besig was om aan my solo-album te werk, het ek vir Jacques gesê dat ek graag die lied as ’n duet saam met hom wil opneem. Hy was baie opgewonde oor die idee!” vertel Lizandra opgewonde.

Report: Apple Music U.S. Subscriptions To Outpace Spotify.

Apple Music is gaining ground on Spotify in the battle for U.S. subscribers. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Apple Music’s growth rate for U.S. subscribers has risen to five percent monthly compared to Spotify’s two percent monthly growth. If the pace continues, Apple will outpace Spotify by this summer.

Last month Spotify said it has 70 million subscribers to its premium music streaming service. Apple told the Wall Street Journal it now has 36 million subscribers – up from the 30 million it reported in September. Neither company specifies how many subscribers are from the U.S., but the Journal cites record industry insiders as to the stateside subscription growth increases for both companies.

Survey: Listeners Prefer Local Over National Contests.

When it comes to radio contesting, more listeners like local than national. That’s the finding of a new NuVoodoo Ratings Prospects Study, which found that 59.8% of respondents are more likely to play a local radio contest with a smaller prize than the 35.7% who said they were more likely to play a national radio contest with a larger prize.

NuVoodoo provided a choice between two hypothetical contests: one where the 25th local caller wins $250, the other where the 25th nationwide caller wins $1,000. It found that the smaller prize – against a smaller, local entry pool – beats the larger, nationwide prize by better than a two-to-one margin.
