Published in News
Jeremy Loops arrived on South Africa’s music scene with an unexpected commercial force, debuting at No. 1 on iTunes in 2014 with his debut albumTrading Change, topping radio charts, and quickly developed a cult following in his homeland. The album would go gold in South Africa, be crownedAlbum of the Year by iTunes SA, and win multiple awards including the MTV Africa Music Award for Best Pop & Alternative in 2015. An environmentalist and avid traveller, Loops’ natural urge to explore unknown physical spaces extended to his music too, and soon he prioritised touring Europe and North America to test how universal his music really is. A cult live following replicating that in South Africa quickly emerged in Britain, Germany, the Netherlands, and Switzerland, with Trading Change charting in each nation. A support tour opening for Twenty One Pilots on their Blurry Face Tour came in quick succession, as did a sold out 30,000 ticket European headline tour of his own. With Trading Change being well-received, it was the live shows that won international audiences over. Relentless touring from early 2014 to the end of 2016 laid the foundation for the next level. Down South, the lead single from Trading Change, had Jeremy charting in the Benelux region and in Germany, with huge radio support in both countries, and over 20 million streams. In early 2017 Loops entered studio with Jake Gosling (James Bay, Lady Gaga, Shawn Mendes) and later that year with Will Hicks (Ed Sheeran, Lilly Allen, Bastille) to record his follow up album.

South African-born Luke Davidson drops his first two singles to radio this week, releasing Million Years and The Lover as a debut musical spectrum. Luke Davidson is unlike most songwriters. The music industry has seen countless artists launch their recording careers in their late teens and early twenties, fuelling the idea that you need to be young to be successful. Davidson breaks this mould and takes the leap in his thirties. Not unheard of though as the likes of Leonard Cohen, Bill Withers, and Debbie Harry (from Blondie) all launched their careers in their thirties. This was never a factor for Davidson who instead waited till he was ready, and it shows in his singles Million Years and The Lover. Listen to ‘Million Years’ – https://soundcloud.com/luke-davidson/million-years Listen to ‘The Lover’ – https://soundcloud.com/luke-davidson/the-lover There’s a clear diversity between the two singles which makes for an interesting introduction to Davidson. Why the different sounds? Davidson explains, saying “Million Years is more a true depiction of where my music has come from. It's truer to the roots of my musical indie rock background. When I’m sitting on my couch at home and playing a few tunes on the guitar, Million Years is the kind of flavour that is created. This is a melodic indie rock song with a hint of Twenty One Pilots energy coming through. When I sat down with the amazing producer Francois de Klerk (who’s worked with the likes of Fokofpolisiekar and Van Coke Kartel) our creative expressions went a little wild creating something completely different to what we normally do, an EDM contemporary deep house track. Listening to TiMO ODV and The…
Prime Circle takes ‘PRETTY LIKE THE SUN’ on the road Prime Circle takes ‘PRETTY LIKE THE SUN’ on the road Read more...

The multi-award winning rock band, Prime Circle is taking to the road with a nationwide tour exciting fans across South Africa with performances in Namibia, Jo’burg, Durban, Cape Town, East London, George, Plettenberg Bay and more.   The Pretty Like The Sun Tour will include 15 shows from 8 December ‘17 to 7 January ’18. The series of concerts is named off the hot single, Pretty Like The Sun which will follow The Gift as the second most played radio tune from their latest album, If You Don’t You Never Will. If You Don’t You Never Will is Prime Circle’s seventh studio album, and their first new recording since their acclaimed 2014 release Let the Night In, which was repackaged as a deluxe edition in 2016.  Regarded as South African rock royalty, with a string of awards and sold-out concerts to their credit, the band has spent the past couple of years ratcheting up its international profile, building a solid following in the tough-to-crack and discerning German market in particular.  Prime Circle may have secured a German agent and an international recording deal, yet their roots remain firmly lodged in South Africa – which is why they are giving local fans first dibs at hearing their new material. For Prime Circle, though, there’s clearly no time like the present to seize the day – and make the dreams and opportunities happen for themselves.   Prime Circle’s line-up is Ross Learmonth (vocals and guitar); Marco Gomes (bass); Dale Schnettler (drums); Neil Breytenbach (keyboard) and Dirk Bisschoff (guitar).   Catch them live: 8 December – Rumours Rock City (Johannesburg) 19…
