From Demi Lovato to Muddy Waters

Also this week:

Cover star Demi Lovato told us that, “I feel like it’s going back to my roots. But at the same time, it’s harder than what I used to perform and sing. So it’s definitely new in a way, but it’s also nostalgic for me. I grew up with the emo scene, and so I listened to a lot of that, I listened to harder music, and then I started writing and recording music when I was 15, so I was smack dab in the middle of the 2000s when all of that was blowing up. And so it definitely is a part of who I am artistically.”

In “Not Another DJ,” Themba said, “Besides growing musically and as a performing DJ, I really want to plant as many seeds around the world, playing in as many new territories as possible to expose the world to my music. Release wise, following on from ‘Stomp Your Feet’ is the Heritage releases, then I have another single ‘VhaVenda’. Something else I’m really excited about is a limited edition double gatefold vinyl of my debut LP ‘Modern Africa’, and to round off the year, 2 remixes of classic house tracks- Kerri Chandler ‘Bar-A-Tym’ and Bob Sinclair ‘World Hold On’. I’m now working on ‘Modern Africa Part 2’ which I’m producing here in Ibiza, and really looking forward to presenting that in 2023.”
