Laudo Liebenberg, aKING

"I just want to pack my bags and hit the road when I hear this."


WHEN it comes to writing and producing music that pulls at our proudly-South African heartstrings, aKING are tugging hard. Responsible for the beautiful Safe as Houses, The Dance, Against All Odds, You and I and others, the boys from Belville are churning out great songs and, in the space of three years, three full-length albums. On their latest, The Red Blooded Years, they switch starting-member Hunter Kennedy for Thieve front man Andrew Davenport, who contributes added vocals, along with Hennie van Halen, the result of which “brings an intrinsic dynamic” to the album.

ADELE - Rolling in the Deep

I got goosebumps when I saw the video for Adele's Rolling in the Deep; this is one of the best songs play-listed at the moment. Her vocal range is incredible.
