Surviving without the Google Play Store? – A look at life as a Huawei user

The Google Play store is no more — at least for Huawei devices. The ongoing trade war between the US and China has made it so that the app store synonymous with Android is not included within the Huawei family of mobile products (including the latest P40 series), for now. While there are ways to get the Google Play store on a Huawei phone, it can be a hassle especially for those who aren’t tech-savvy. But Huawei has its own answer to app distribution: AppGallery.  So does the experience adequately fill the void left out by Google? That is the…

Google Nest Hub Review: Nestled nicely in your home

Smart devices are quickly becoming popular within our society, with many people utilising gadgets like smartwatches and smart speakers in their daily routine. Smart displays are something more of an emerging trend, but Google is keen to make it part of the norm in the household with their Google Nest Hub. If you are not familiar with smart displays, it is an all-in-one control panel for your home. If your home is fully kitted with smart devices, you can essentially control your entire house with this individual device — from your speakers to even your lights. For something that has…

The Heck Is: Lewis Capaldi?

Ah, Lewis Capaldi. I don’t even remember when I first encountered him.  Or rather, his body of work. Before going for his press conference, I recalled his name as an up-and-coming UK artist with a current smash hit. I dismissed him as an Ed Sheeran type. No offence to Sheeran, of course, but ever since he came into the scene, there have been a few copycats that have cropped up. If you are into UK pop music, a few artists might have popped into your mind. View this post on Instagram R KID @glastofest A post shared by Lewis Calamari…

Soundbites with Yeo: Telling it like it is

Malaysian-Australian artist Yeo is a bit of a mixed bag. A singer (although he still doesn’t really consider himself one), a songwriter, a producer, a DJ, a music director and an absolute legend on the bass and keytar… the list goes on. Yet amongst this wealth of identities, the artist still manages to find his own method to the madness; creating a unique, ever-evolving brand of sound that intersperses bleak pictures of reality with glimmers of the purest hope you’ll find. Coupled with his Asian diasporic background and his love for travel, there’s just something about his songwriting that pulls…

If rojak could sing, it’ll only sing local music

It’s absolutely mind-boggling how much local music has transcended over the years that it’s difficult to form opinions surrounding it since any conclusion gathered becomes obsolete quickly. I’ve been a fan for 15 years now, but *pfft*, it’s still not enough to scratch the surface of our music. So anyway, danamic. kick-jolted me from my slumber, hypnic jerk-style – requesting a write-up out of the Spotify playlist they created called ‘Local Delights’ (which sounds like a canteen tuckshop from your primary school days). However, a confession before I get into the meat of the article though: danamic. didn’t really specify…

Local singer-songwriter Niine tackles depression and insecurity in ‘don’t wanna sleep’

Local singer-producer Niine will be releasing his new track, ‘don’t wanna sleep’, on 19 July 2019 (Friday) on Spotify and YouTube. A mellow tune with poppy sounds thrown into the mix, ‘don’t wanna sleep’ talks about the cycle of spiralling in one’s insecurities during the night, only to go back to being “normal” in the day. Talking with Niine Niine shares with us in a conversation on the song’s significance to him and how he tackles depression. Your songs tend to be a reflection of your own life experiences. What meaning does this song hold for you? Niine: It’s literally…

Spotify Turns 5 In Singapore: Learning More About Singaporeans’ Musical Tastes Daily

From aptly named playlist, Hazed & Confused (a pun on the Singapore haze season) to We Are Singapore (dedicated to Singapore’s National Day), Spotify has become quite the cornerstone of the local music scene – and to think we probably would not have fathomed as such, five years ago! Introduced to Singapore in 2013, Spotify came to be quite the fanfare of many – mostly as it was one of the first of its kind in new age music streaming services to enter the Southeast Asian region. Starting out with a small set of music in its digital catalogue, it…

Valentine’s Day As Told By Local Musicians

Come February 14, some of us may be disappointed with a sad sight in town: it’s the time of the year where couples try the hardest to impress their partners on this special day with insta-worthy outfits, bouquets of roses, and trendy LED-lit helium balloons… the inexhaustible list goes on. Interestingly enough, romance happens to be quite an abstract concept – so much so, that we express or find these heart-wrenching emotions in music. This year, we have compiled our favourite love songs from our local musicians in a Spotify playlist. So gather your single ladies and men, and scream…
