Sliding into our atmosphere, futuristic electronic dance outfit – ZYO – is back on the music radar with his new single “Dockside Days”. This time he teams up with soulful singer/songwriter Mathew Gold. The eclectic mix of afro-soul, chunky house beats coupled with the soothing vocals of Mathew Gold will lift you up from any universal lockdown. Available now to stream and download on all major music platforms.

ZYO “Dockside Days” ft Mathew Gold – https://ffm.to/zyo-dockside-days

While in search of an earthling to collaborate with, ZYO found himself hypnotised by the soulful vocals of Mathew Gold. Mathew was enticed by this space creature known as ZYO and soon found himself in ZYO’s studio spaceship. After a few days in captivity, “Dockside Days” was created and both spaceman and earthling were thrilled about the outcome of this galactic release. Golds delivery on ‘Dockside Days’ reminds us no genre can pigeonhole his genius and pure talent as a musician.

“I met ZYO in ‘dockside’ on a planet a few moons away from the sun. He told me he wanted to drop his 3rd song on planet earth and I never hesitated. We must give the people what they want”, says Mathew Gold.

ZYO’s unique take on Afro-house music intertwined with dance and pop is what caught the attention of many music lovers when he rocketed into the music scene in 2018 with hits like “We Are One” featuring Mpumi Szani and “Brighter Day” featuring Thandeka Mfinyongo.

ZYO is currently in search for other talented, musical earthlings and is set to release his debut EP later this year.

Notes to the editor:
Midem aims to support the development and internationalisation of African music markets. Despite their incredible influence on lots of music styles all over the world, African countries only represent two percent of the world music market. However, thanks to Africa’s young population and rapid adoption of mobile media, the digital revolution is offering a new opportunity to export more local artists. African markets, with their diversity and rich cultural heritage, have huge potential.
With its long-term programme for Africa, Midem hopes to accelerate this transition by creating bridges between the continent and the rest of the world. This initiative aims to foster bilateral exchanges between national and international music executives and sectors in order to facilitate the structuring and professionalisation of the African market.
The African Music Forum consists of a series of conferences, workshops and showcases attended by more than 400 industry professionals including labels, streaming platforms, publishers, artists, politicians, media, and official institutions. The objective is to support the structuring and internationalisation of the African music industry, encouraging business development and new talent discovery.

SA Rugby confirms venues for Springboks’ 2020 home Tests

• Final Springbok Test at DHL Newlands

• Rising Georgia make SA debut in Port Elizabeth

• New Zealand visit the Lowveld in September

The Springboks will bid an emotional farewell to DHL Newlands in Cape Town in July, and will face the All Blacks in a brand-new venue in September, after SA Rugby confirmed the host stadiums for the Boks’ six home Tests in 2020 on Tuesday.

All three the Castle Lager Rugby Championship matches – against New Zealand, Australia and Argentina – will take place up north, while the three Tests in the Castle Lager Incoming Series – against Scotland and Georgia in a new Test window in July – will be hosted on the coast.

In what will be a final international at the oldest Test venue in the Southern Hemisphere, DHL Newlands in Cape Town will host the Springboks for their first match since their memorable triumph over England in the Rugby World Cup Final in Japan last November.

The two-match series against the Scots kicks off on Saturday 4 July in Cape Town, with the two sides meeting again a week later at Jonsson Kings Park in Durban.

That is followed by a historic first home Test for the Springboks against Georgia, at the majestic Nelson Mandela Stadium in Port Elizabeth on Mandela Day (Saturday, 18 July). The Friendly City traditionally pulls in very good crowds for Springbok Tests and the Boks can look forward to another good turnout against the Georgians.

The Springboks will also defend their Castle Lager Rugby Championship title, which starts with a match against Argentina at Emirates Airline Park in Johannesburg on Saturday, 8 August.

The away match against the Pumas on 15 August is then followed by a visit to Australasia for the away fixtures against the Wallabies (29 August) and All Blacks (5 September) before the Boks return to South Africa for two home fixtures to complete their 2020 campaign.

Loftus Versfeld in Pretoria will host the Springboks’ clash with the Wallabies on 19 September, where the Australians have yet to register a win against the men in green and gold, after which the highly-anticipated Test against the All Black will take place a week at the Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit, on 26 September.

SA Rugby CEO Jurie Roux said the six home Test matches will offer local supporters across the country an exciting opportunity to watch their Rugby World Cup winning Springbok heroes in action on South African soil.

“The Springboks had a fantastic season last year which resulted in successes in both the Castle Lager Rugby Championship and the Rugby World Cup and we saw the passion for the Boks from all South Africans upon their return from Japan,” said Roux.

“There is a huge amount of excitement amongst our fans to watch the Springboks live in action again in our own backyard and this year’s home schedule will give them just that, starting with a farewell to DHL Newlands in the first Test against Scotland, a historic clash with Georgia before the defence of the Castle Lager Rugby Championship gets underway and we finish off by taking the All Blacks to the Lowveld for the very first time.”

Ticketing information and kick-off times will be communicated in due course.

The Springboks home Test schedule for 2020:

Castle Lager Incoming Series:

4 July: South Africa vs Scotland – DHL Newlands, Cape Town

11 July: South Africa vs Scotland – Jonsson Kings Park, Durban

18 July: South Africa vs Georgia – Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium, Port Elizabeth

Castle Lager Rugby Championship:

“We are very excited about the team that we are putting out this weekend and the potential for us to make a good start to the last season at DHL Newlands.

“We want to play the kind of rugby that will make our supporters smile and that starts on Saturday against the Hurricanes,” he said.

Alicia Keys announces ALICIA – THE WORLD TOUR

Today global music icon and 15-time GRAMMY Award winner Alicia Keys announced ALICIA – THE WORLD TOUR, her highly anticipated return to the stage. Keys will bring her repertoire of worldwide hits to iconic venues across North America and Europe, including a stop at the legendary Radio City Music Hall in Key’s hometown of New York City. The celebrated singer/songwriter/producer will visit major cities on both continents including London, Paris, Berlin, Atlanta, Toronto, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and more on the tour produced by Live Nation.

The tour announcement comes fresh off Keys’ exciting news to fans last night that her forthcoming seventh studio album ALICIA is set to be released worldwide on March 20, via RCA Records. Keys also gave fans a first-look at the album’s stunning artwork. Pre-sale for the album is set for Friday, January 24, in celebration of Alicia’s birthday on January 25.

Keys released the anthemic “Underdog,” the album’s new single, earlier this month to critical acclaim (“A be-jewelled slice of pop-soul with a gently euphoric feel” – Clash). The track became the most added song at US top 40 radio upon its release. Previously released singles include “Time Machine” and “Show Me Love,” which earned Keys a record-extending 11th number 1 on the Billboard Adult R&B Songs airplay chart.

In addition to new music, Keys will be bringing her classics – from “No One” to “If I Ain’t Got You” to “Girl on Fire” – to life in a special multi-media, artistic experience on the ALICIA – THE WORLD TOUR stage each night. A meditation on love and life, the show will be a true celebration, filled with the magnetic energy that only live music can create.

American Express® Card Members can purchase tickets to the tour before the general public, beginning Wednesday, January 22nd at 10am local time until Sunday, January 26th at 10pm local time across Europe and the US (timings may vary in Europe). Tickets go on sale to the general public on Monday, January 27th from 9am local time.

Keys will be returning to host the Grammy Awards on Sunday, January 26th, airing on CBS. She will release her book More Myself on March 31, via Flatiron Publishing.
