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…

Can Ariana Grande’s “Dangerous Woman” Conquer Summer 2016?

“I’ve made my decision, to test my limits” After a painfully-extended promotional run, pop’ music’s four-octave fave Ariana Grande has finally released her third full-length album, “Dangerous Woman”. The album is preceded by the singles “Dangerous Woman” and “Into You”, along with many other bops that we’ll get to later. The wait for #AG3 could have been a lot shorter. After scrapping 2015’s “Focus” over online criticism about it sounding too similar to her 2014 Iggy Azalea collab “Problem”, Ariana took a few months off to realign her chakras, lick some donuts, and post more cryptic tweets, Snapchats, and Instagrams as punishment for our audacity…

The Heart Wants Selena Gomez: From Disney To The Indoor Stadium

Remember the time when a baby-faced Selena Gomez was part of the Disney DNA? Back when she was (mildly) overshadowed by (then-) BFFs Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus? Well this Disney child star has come a long way and proves that she deserves to be in the spotlight. Selena Gomez has come a long way since her Disney days. Since starting out on “Barney & Friends”, she showed that she has a knack for music as well as acting. She moved on and shined as the lead in Disney’s “Wizards of Waverly Place” playing the sassy witch-in-training Alex Russo, where…

The One-Size-Fits-All O Level Results Playlist

It’s that time of the year again. The culmination of 4 years or more of hard work to produce one single sheet of paper with mostly numbers printed on it. It’s the beginning of many dreaded Chinese New Year conversations and varying parental disappointment (because Asian parents are never satisfied). But it’s also the reward for many nights upon nights of intense mugging, the sacrificing of social lives and hobbies, the many hours of carpal tunnel-esque pain. That’s right – the O Level results are out. To put all the students who have collected their results in the right mood, we’ve carefully…
