This Week In Music: 12th May

A weekly update on all things music, advertising, and technology coming straight to you from Anthony Vanger at MassiveMusic. #TWIM ARTIST OF THE WEEK: TEMS Crazy Tings indeed. Hailing from Nigeria, singer, songwriter and producer Tems first introduced her smooth mix of reggae, soul and R&B back in 2018 with “Mr Rebel.” Since then, the West African storyteller has gone on to be featured on Wizkid’s “Essence,” which was the first Nigerian song to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, and on Drake’s “Fountains,” taken off his latest album “Certified Lover Boy.” Similar to the output of her contemporaries in … Continue reading This Week In Music: 12th May

This Week In Music: 24th March 2022

A weekly update on all things music, advertising, and technology coming straight to you from Anthony Vanger at MassiveMusic. #TWIM ARTIST OF THE WEEK: ROOSEVELT LIVE ON KEXP So this is what smooth dance-pop sounds like nowadays. Synths, tight live drums, loops, but infused with just enough real instruments and vocals to make it worthwhile performing live. Roosevelt caught my ear from the first bar. The lead singer and producer, Marius Lauber, 31, started out as a DJ in Cologne, Germany and after writing the hit song “Elliot” in 2013 and a series of super catchy songs, formed Roosevelt and … Continue reading This Week In Music: 24th March 2022

Polish composer, pianist and electronic artist Hania Rani has created a unique sound with her cascading arpeggios and cross-over hand piano playing style.

This Week In Music: 3rd March 2022

A weekly update on all things music, advertising, and technology coming straight to you from Anthony Vanger at MassiveMusic. #TWIM ARTIST OF THE WEEK: TEARS FOR FEARS Like many of us, I was a huge Tears for Fears fan in the 80s. It wasn’t their angst that drew me in, but the classic-out-of-the-box pop anthems and staggering vocals. Songs like “Shout” and “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” conquered the US and the whole world followed. They are this week’s artist because they have released their first record in 18 years. And unlike many acts who release an album of … Continue reading This Week In Music: 3rd March 2022

This Week In Music: 24th February 2022

A weekly update on all things music, advertising, and technology coming straight to you from Anthony Vanger at MassiveMusic. #TWIM ARTIST OF THE WEEK: ALISON KRAUSS AND ROBERT PLANT I could listen to these two all day. Sweet harmonies and a special chemistry plain to see each time Kraus pivots her head to look at Plant to make sure they are in sync. Huddled in the control room around the two singers are an all-star cast of musicians, plucking and grooving to the finest rockabilly and country music you could hear. It has been 14 years since their last, highly … Continue reading This Week In Music: 24th February 2022
