This is my king of soul. Siavash. The first date we had, so many years ago, he picked a rose from a garden and sang to me under a street lamp. I was gone. He had a voice of an angel. We should take care of our legends while they are still alive.❤️ #siavash#legend#voiceofanangel#music#persian#musicmatters
@zakesbantwini - Has Been invited to headline Music Matters Conference in Singapore and also be a panelist. I’m grateful, this is an honor for me as I’ve dedicated my career to bridge the gap between SA musicians and the rest of the world. I used my position & influence at Sony Music Africa as Head of A&R to build artists careers beyond our boarders, happy to see the likes of AKA, Kwesta, KO and many others tapping in those markets as one was heavily involved on their albums while at Sony. Now let’s take this music to Asia and I’m excited about my partnership with @sjnagency since we share a common goal and we on the journey to Global Dominance. #musicmatters#headlineartist#ghettoking#zakesbantwini

Lovebirds’ all-original tune Icarus layers jazzy vintage electric pianos over restrained but head-nodding percussion, with Galliano’s soulful vocal soaring above it all. The ever-consistent Tall Black Guy delivers a 90’s-esque boom-bapper of a mix + instrumental, with an added verse from 80’s Babies for good measure. Moods works the track into a slo-mo stomper on his mix, complete with stuttering synth bass and driving percussion. And rounding out the package is RNT’s JKriv, with a beachy stripped-down retro-boogie remix perfect for those warm-weather months coming and just in time for this weekends beachside celebrations with friends.⠀
The untouchables is what I must call this Team, thank you all for being such phenomenal people with such efficiency, love, professionalism and grace.. I said everyday this is "Team Perfection", together we took our young people to unexpected levels and was blessed to see their growth in such a short time frame..Thank you to the Hon Minister and her Ministry of Community Development Arts & Culture for giving us this opportunity to make such a difference.. Such an unforgettable experience#musicmatters#youthmatter#music
For the past couple of months my focus was Managing a Music School in the Community alongside the most dynamic Team Shaquille Rose/Jenais Carter & Kwesi Moore we were blessed to be a part of the musical journey of a
group of Talented young people who showed the world if given a chance wonders can happen when supported and guided.
Receiving the certificates from Hon. Minister for my 25 young people who have levelled up. #musicmatters#unforgettable#experience#musicislife#miracle#proud#instalife
“All my life, I had to grind and hustle. I had to work like Kobe just to shine like Russell (ohh).” I know that money is the root of all evil, but I love Leikeli47’s “Money”, it’s a certified bop with a chorus that will be stuck in your head forever. Add this song and, while you’re at it, add her debut album Wash & Set (2017) and her self-titled EP (2015) too. From her sound to her fashion, she’s one of a kind. How many artists you know are making an 808 by tapping a pop filter? #leikeli47#blackgirlmagic
Currently spinning John Coltrane's Blue Train LP, a Blue Note record released by Music Matters Jazz on 33RPM. Mastered by Kevin Gray at Cohearant Audio and pressed at RTI. This is the mono version as the guys at Music Matters Jazz decided that it sounded really good, better than the stereo version.
This is the only Blue Note release where John Coltrane is the leader in this recording. Blue Train became one of the quintessential jazz albums of all time and the most popular in Coltrane's discography. A truly great hard bop jazz album, in my opinion.
This Music Matters Jazz pressing is by far one of the best sounding vinyl record in my collection, taking from the original master tape and mastered in an all-analog chain by Kevin Gray at Cohearent Audio. Not to mention that the artwork is extremely well reproduced from the original negatives and in the gatefold are photos of the band members by Francis Wolff, printed on high quality cardboard by Stoughton Printing. Music Matters Jazz really set the gold standard on sound and presentation for audiophile records, let alone packaging altogether. Better get this one fast as copies are going for high prices on eBay and Discogs at the time of the writing.
RIP Beautiful ONE. I loved loved loved and still love your music. I’ll always remember when a friend of mine got a call for her husband (a musician). When my friend asked who’s calling, the caller said, “Aretha.” My friend said she nearly dropped the phone. Said a lot about ❤️“Aretha” I know this is a small moment in time but to this day, my friend sharing this with me, replaying the incredible and actually funny moment (we both screamed and laughed with excitement and probably a shared awe) over this moment, I’ll never forget it. Makes me smile still. I treasure my friends who have passed and all these amazing artists who continue to share their music with us. Thank you eternally #aretha#arethafranklin#musicmatters
