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.

Cupid’s Arrow Takes Aim At Radio Airwaves.

The radio airwaves are being overrun by Cupid and his arrow. With Valentine’s Day one week away, is it any surprise that Jared the Galleria of Jewelry, ProFlowers/Shari’s Berries, Shane Co., and Diamonds Direct are all among the top 30 advertisers?

In fact, the three jewelers were all pervasive over the airwaves around the holidays, but then lay low until now. For all of 2017, Diamonds Direct was No. 22, Shane was No. 24 and Jared was 58.

Now, for this pre-holiday week of Jan. 29 to Feb. 4, Jared pops back into the top 100, at No. 4, which equals its highest position in 2017 (the week of Dec. 4-10), according to Media Monitors, which tracks national radio advertising in 85 markets. Among competitors, Shane is No. 23 (No. 35 last week) and Diamond Direct is No. 30 (No. 25 last week). Genesis Diamonds was No. 99 a week ago, but does not appear on the roster this week. Among related gift gifting, FTD’s Proflowers/Shari’s Berries is No. 13 for the week ending Feb. 4 (new to the chart).

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.

Last Push For Radio To Move To Online Public Files.

The countdown is on for all full-power radio stations to move their public inspection files online. The Federal Communications Commission has ordered all stations to shift to an online file on the FCC’s searchable portal website by March 1. It’s the last wave of stations to make the switch. Television stations began posting their public files online in 2012 and radio stations in the top 50 markets followed in 2016.

For the final group converting over to the FCC’s web portal, the largest headache has been technical. “The single biggest question that we are getting isn’t what do I upload or anything along the traditional lines, it’s I can’t get the system to work—and as a result people can’t get even started in the process and it’s been incredibly frustrating,” said Fletcher Heald & Hildreth attorney Scott Flick on a recent webinar hosted by several state broadcast associations. It’s a good reason for stations not to put off the process until the last minute.
