Motown, Soul & Oldies

“Motown” is both a style of music and a label; in fact, no other label (with the possible exception of its grittier ’60s brother, Stax) is more identified with the sound it produced. Although Motown started as a straight R&B label and later moved into genres from Psychedelic Soul to New Jack Swing, “The Motown Sound” as it’s usually understood by fans and historians.Most Motown songs were written on piano and based on a piano riff, although there were occasional ballads that broke the mold (the Temptations’ “My Girl”).

He is that DJ that spins all

In this musical edition we are featuring multiple award-winning DJ Spinall(Sodamola Oluseye Desmond ), one of the main forces pushing afrobeats forward from behind the decks .
Earlier this year, Spinall released the excellent album Ten, which has birthed many dance floor hits and which features top-tier collaborations with Mr Eazi, Ice Prince, Sarkodie, Patoranking and more. He’s also recently dropped the massive “Olowo,” alongside Davido and Wande Coal.
And as he says in the interview” I really, really want to take the music around the world, not just in Africa. I want to take the music to Asia; I want to take the music to places that we have Africans at. We have Africans almost in every part of the world.Also, beyond selling my music to Africa, or introducing Africans to the music, I want to introduce the world itself to the music. I’m looking forward to EDM sessions, and sessions in other genres.Basically, I want to push African music but not leave behind the culture. Because I feel like the culture is what lead to the music.”
Dj Spinall is someone who really, really loves music, and he listens to everything. Is a big fan of hip-hop and he really loves R&B. he loves afrobeats, he loves afropop. He loves fuji music, he loves reggae, he loves dancehall. So basically, he is that DJ that spins all. That’s how we came about the name DJ Spinall.

Set Fire to the Rain!

To conclude summer holidays Lisa wanted to share some of her favorites songs with friends and community, expressing what she pursues in her studies in Holland. Lisa, with exquisite voice, heading in a soul direction, was accompanied by Matt on keyboards and saxophone, Martin and Holger on classical guitar; Jonas and Tina joined in a couple of songs. As music is about emotions, feelings, the songs lulled us into those zones, where the only right thing is to be with friends, family and loved ones.

Soulful

It was a special treat for music lovers: Friday’s concert by Suryan who is blessed by an amazing, rich and charming voice, capable of different styles. Whether soul, R&B, funk, poetic rock…his songs deal with emotions honest and open yet sometimes with a healthy humorous distance. His honesty and heart-probing songs touched us, brought us nearly to tears. And maybe for the first time in public the richness of his songs came out. The intimacy of the room in Pitanga as well as the duet with Taranti combined to make the event one of the kind.
