Afrikaans Alternative Rock band, Die Heuwels Fantasties just announced the official launch party of their new 15 track album dubbed “2021” on May the 30th. They have very creatively used current circumstances to their advantage and will amplify the launch with an online streaming concert!
It’s not what we are used to, cause lets be honest a real gig, is the real deal, but as far as the stream in concerned, it is seriously stacked with appearances by Francois van Coke, Arno Carstens, Tarryn Lamb and Jack Parow.
“We’re very excited to launch an album with a full-on live, online show for the first time. We’ll be sending our album to you over the ether of the internet with VISUALS, LIGHTING, the full band and it will come to you 100% LIVE in the comfort of your home.” – pierre greeff
What’s amazing, is the fact that your ticket in fact includes “2021” as a full digital album. Die Heuwels Fantasties also released a Lyric video for the single “Naweek” off the album as teaser for this weekend.
New Music Friday took on a whole new persona. A day full of surprises and Jeremy Loops definitely added to the excitement. He released “Mortal Man” under his new licensing deal with Universal Music Group South Africa, as part of a unique global partnership with Decca Records in the United Kingdom and Polydor in Germany.
The new track was accompanied by a beautifully crafted lyric animation.
” What a journey here. From our little rough lakeside sketch of this song when it was just a work in progress to naming a whole tour after it months before it’s come out”
The release of Mortal Man was only part of the bomb Loops dropped on Friday. With it came the public announcement that Loops have secretly been working on 2 tracks with Ed Shereen, in his studio on his estate in Essex. It is reported that the two hit it off after one of Ed Shreen’s stadium shows in South Africa and the rest is history.
Mortal Man is available on all streaming platforms.

I met Emma van Heyn a few years ago when she was still a drama student in Stellenbosch and since day one I knew she’d be doing some big things with her brand, but I always wondered if South Africa had a big enough of an audience for this niche sound of hers.
I’ve been chatting to old Smooth Mike about his new music every so often, to be honest, I’m a massive PHFAT fan so I always try to push him to release an EP but if you know Mike, he is pretty set in his ways.
I’ve been sitting and wondering about this new Foo Fighters album and why although so commercial and non-Foo Fighters is so amazing to my ears. I haven’t been seeing many rave reviews or friends sharing the new album or music video on Facebook that much, which is saying a lot when 90% of my friends on Facebook are musos or cult music followers…
