About the album A NOISE IN THE VOID:
‘A Noise In The Void’ has already seen five of the singles from the album released (including the iTunes #1 collab with Karen Zoid ‘WE COULD BE DIVINE’) receive a resounding response among fans and media alike. The current single on radio ‘A GIRL NAMED PARIS’ is also charting across multiple radio stations and the album is without a doubt Kahn’s top solo release to date.
Recorded and produced by THEO CROUS at the now popular and renowned Belville Studios in Cape Town and with the assistance of Robert James Davidson (keyboard and synth for Zebra & Giraffe) K A H N has taken a slightly different direction for this album, which he describes, rather tongue in cheek, as a smorgasbord of gospel alternative 80’s POP from the future. The bi-weekly release of singles and videos from A NOISE IN THE VOID has afforded fans the opportunity to experience a taste of what to expect from the album.

Kahn explains the writing process behind the album, saying “The writing process is a continuous process, on this album there's a few songs where I collaborated with other song writers; Karen Zoid, Nic Olsen and Tristan Prettyman. Both Tristan and Karen's songs also became duets. Musically both Theo Crous and Rob Davidson were integral contributors across the entire album and I featured one of my VOICE season 1 team contestants, Eden Myrrh on many tracks, including a duet.” On recording the album, the process was a timeous one for Kahn who used various musicians to create his own sound. “The songs were recorded with Theo Crous at Bellville studios over several sessions in between touring and life's commitments. I used several session musicians to ensure a significant departure from The Parlotones sound.”When asking Kahn what his favourite track on the album is, he responds “It’s difficult to choose a favourite, I love ‘em all for different reasons. I'm chuffed with my guitar work on VACANCY and I love the musicality of GOODBYE ANNIE. The message on CUPID and FABLES is important but I'm proud of how the entire album turned out”A special message from Kahn to all his fans as they listen to ‘A Noise In The Void’ - “I hope fans enjoy the journey of the album, and embrace some of the philosophy within the script and the lyrics. Musicians always hope for some semblance of success with their creations BUT mostly I hope to look back one day and be proud of this album and look forward to bringing it to fans on a soon to be announced series of dates.”

GRASSY SPARK pay final tribute to their debut album Portal with the third and final Parkwood live session video for their latest single ‘Pyromaniac’.
Watch the Parkwood Session live performance video here for ‘Pyromaniac’: https://youtu.be/7lCVs_JesEs
Released in August 2016, Portal has found its way through South Africa with singles like ‘Living In a Paradise (feat Jeremy Loops)’, ‘Here I am’, ‘Feel It’ and ‘Love to Share’topping national and campus radio charts. Written and self-recorded in a tiny room in Kalk Bay, the intention behind the debut album was to open a portal to the world of GRASSY SPARK. Months were spent at the seaside crafting a piece of work that would lay out a path of infinite opportunity.
“It's been a wild ride. We are so humbled by the response and growth of our family. Seeing fans posting videos of themselves jolling to tunes and singing the lyrics at full volume at shows has made us feel like it's all worth it. It’s this energetic response that has propelled us forward,” comments frontman, Yanick.
He continues, saying “Pyromaniac is one of our favourites off the album. It's supposed to feel like a rollercoaster ride through the feelings of obsession. We play this song near the end of the set when the fire is at its most lit. It's a blast from the rock ‘n roll past and has no chill. It's a great way to burn your way through the Portal.”
Singles ‘Feel It’ and ‘Mona Lisa’ from Portal were also recorded live for the Parkwood Sessions and can be viewed here: http://bit.ly/2zVxut1
GRASSY SPARK are proud of their debut album, but are excited to release new music in 2018 and fans are in for a treat. Yanick explains, saying “It's been about 3 years since the writing of Portal began, so we've had plenty of time to write a new chapter to the story. We created a portal into a world of the ‘bright, beautiful, timeless and unexpected’ and it’s this world that we will be exploring with you going forward.”
Prepare for the unleashing of a new sound in 2018. The guys have been writing and the Dropbox folder named “new tracks” is filling up quickly. Like anything in the universe, GS is an organism and is constantly growing and changing. Keep your mind open and be ready for anything.

SA rockers Leven drop their brand new single Here’s To You through Gallo Record Company today. Listen to the track here.
The anthemic hit Here’s To You celebrates the five years of experience Leven has crafted as a band to sharpen their sound and deliver their strongest single to date.
Front man, Stan Kruger explains the new writing approach, saying "For this song we decided to write with a message in mind and not always just to please the masses. I wrote this song for my mom who has always been my rock and as a single parent sometimes went to bed hungry just so that my sister and I were fed. We want this single to resonate with people and the parents and caregivers they cherish in their lives"
Formed in 2012 and based in Emalahleni, the band took their name Leven from the Dutch word which means 'to live'. The word came about after the band’s drummer heard it in a documentary and the name stuck from there. That one word perfectly summed the central message their music carried.
Leven released their debut album ‘Fighting Hearts’ as an experimental release, allowing the band to discover and define their sound while developing as a new act. The debut produced singles ‘Fighting Hearts’ and ‘Take It Back’ which achieved some success for the band.
“Listening to their debut album ‘Fighting Hearts’ gives you a bit of insight of what Stan Kruger, lead singer of the band can do with his voice. It is only when you see this band perform live, that you suddenly realise how much talent is hidden in the City of Coal. After the show Ross Learmonth, lead singer of Prime Circle said he became emotional when he heard the band perform.” - Zita Goldswain, Witbank News

Early 2014 Leven was introduced to The Hit Lab studio and recorded single ‘Starry Night’ with producers Dale Schnettler (Prime Circle - Drummer) and Howie Combrink (two-time SAMA-nominee in 2015). The single was released in mid-2014 and achieved great success for the group.
Three years later and Leven have taken the time and space to perform more, write more and finally record again.
Why the long wait? "After the first few singles we decided to take stock of where we are personally and after parting ways with a previous company, we decided to work on our sound and what exactly we want to be as a band and 'Here's to you' was the baby we were scared to kick out of the nest. The break was worth it, we have a very clear mind about the future," explains Kruger.
Here's To You was produced by Leven and long-time musical friend, Howie Combrink at his studio The Hit Lab. Recording took place at The Hit Lab and Stained Oak Studios, with mixing done by SAMA Winner, Gerhard Grobler and mastered by Rogan Kelsey.

Creating music since 2007, Joburg-based Avi G is no newcomer to the music scene. Describing his sound as Pop/Hip Hop, Avi G(real name Avarshan Govender) has worked hard on building his career. Honest, his previous single released with his brother Priv Roc, has been his most successful release to date and achieved success across South African campus radio as well as San Diego college radio. The music video for Honest was filmed by Kyle White and received play on MTV locally (watch the music video here).
‘Feel It’ is his latest single release and was been a timeous work in progress. Even though the single took longer than expected to write and record, the time spent to perfect it was worthwhile and the addition of Lpee a perfect finishing touch.
How did Avi G discover Lpee? “It was crazy how we met... I was searching for someone with his sound but didn't even know where to start. I tried Google, different sites but it was so hard to find what I was looking for and have them be in the same area so we could get into studio together to be able explain what I wanted him to do on the track... One day I was scrolling on Instagram and saw one of my friends was in studio with Lpee and they posted a video of them jamming to a track they just did. When I heard Lpee's part I instantly knew that’s what I was looking for and he must have been in my area because he was recording with my friend. So, I reached out to him over Instagram, we met in studio and the rest is history!”
Avi G explains the message behind Feel It, saying “The song is about feeling the vibe with someone you don't necessarily know that well but feel a connection with knowing it’s something special and can't be ignored.” Feel It was written and produced by Avi G and recorded, mixed and mastered at The Yard Studios.
Summer and holiday vibes are around the corner and there’s no better soundtrack to the fun than ‘Feel It’!
