How can I sell my music online?

See Digital Music Sales

This is one of the questions I get asked very often by South African musicians.

In 2002 I was involved with creating the SAmp3. com portal for promoting South African music through free downloads. However there was no real way, at the time, to monetize these free give-aways.

In August 2006, I became a partner in starting Rhythm Online to sell MP3s to the world. This online store is now known as Rhythm Music Store (and also MyMusiek) and if you are a talented musician, published or unpublished, fill in the online electronic distribution agreement to have your tunes listed on Rhythm Online Music Store.

Would you like the world to hear and buy your music?

SAmp3. com can help you promote your music through channel24 and sell your MP3s to the world on the RhythmMusicStore.com.

And the best part is, there is no cost to you!

Music Sales:

If you wish to sell your music on RhythmMusicStore.com you will need to complete the easy online agreement.

All the information you need can be found there.

Currently Rhythm Music Store is only able to accommodate artists and labels with bank accounts in South Africa.

For selling MP3s on Rhythm Music Store we require a physical audio CD or CD-R for  for the following reasons:

  • Quality Control
  • Naming Convention
  • Creation of 30 second samples

Single songs are also fine (we list it as a album with only one track, and with its own artwork and blurb), but we still require the music to be supplied on an audio CD, please.

It’s A GOOD HOPE FM CHRISTMAS!

It’s A GOOD HOPE FM CHRISTMAS!

Contemporary music has always played a huge role in the celebration of Christmas – for years Bing Crosby’s ‘White Christmas’ was the biggest-selling single of all time. In more recent years John & Yoko celebrated world peace with ‘Happy Xmas’ (War Is Over) and Band-Aid raised millions for starving people in Africa with ‘Don’t They Know It’s Christmas’. These are just a few examples of how pop music has played a positive role at Christmas time.

Now, Cape Town’s premier radio station, Good Hope FM, has rallied some of Cape Town’s leading artists and invited them to make their own personal contribution to Christmas through music. The result is stunning beautiful and heart-warming. There are new versions of old festive chestnuts – plus brand-new compositions – all performed in a joyous Christmas spirit – celebrating Christmas …and Cape Town.

The beauty of Christmas meets the beauty, peace and good-will of Christmas in this truly wonderful collection of songs by some of Cape Town’s finest – made all the more special by the fact that Good Hope FM is sharing this spirit and love with all the people of Cape Town …all those who live here – and all those who visit from all over the world.

We wish you truly Happy Christmas!

Forces Favourites

This compilation was put together in the mid 80’s in conjunction with and to help raise awareness for the End Conscription Campaign. The ECC played an important role in dismantling apartheid by providing crucial emotional and strategic support to those men who rejected conscription on religious or political grounds, as well as acting as a conscientising force for the youth and parents.

How good was the ECC at its task? Ask the experts. General Magnus Malan described the ECC as “just as much an enemy of the Defence Force as the African National Congress.” Minister of Law and Order Adriaan Vlok accused it of being “the vanguard of those forces that are intent on wrecking the present dispensation and its renewal”.

All of the bands featured on this album played at ECC concerts. Though some of them, like The Softies, The Facts and Nude Red weren’t overtly political by nature, the situation in the country couldn’t help but work its way into their songwriting. For other artists like Stan James, Jennifer Ferguson and James Phillips, reflecting the state of the nation was the dominant feature of their art.

Tracks

  1. Pambere – Mapantsula
  2. National Madness – The Aeroplanes
  3. Potential Mutiny – Stan James
  4. Numbered Again – The Facts
  5. Shot Down in the Streets – The Cherry Faced Lurchers
  6. Don’t Dance – Kalahari Surfers
  7. Whitey – The Softies
  8. Don’t Believe – In Simple English

Winston’s Jive Mix Up

Winston's Jive Mix-up
Winston's Jive Mix-up

Winston’s Jive Mixup was indeed a mixup. It was 1986 when Mbaqanga saxophonist Winston Nyaunda joined up with Adam Reinecke, a folky groove guitarist to form a new Jive band. Winston had learnt his trade playing penny-whistle on the streets of Joburg, later touring with the Soul Brothers and Mahlatini & the Mahotello Queens, and then went on to lead the exuberant ska/mbaqanga outfit the Dynamics.

The mid-80’s was a rough time in RSA, and there was a partying audience out there, needing to dance. Winston and Adam were joined by Hammond-Organist Sipho Duma steeped in Zulu traditional Maskande music, trombonist Jannie Hanepoot van Tonder fresh from touring with the African Jazz Pioneers, and violinist Melissa James. After various rhythm section shake-ups, ex-Dynamics drummer Steve Howells came to liven things up, and Jive Mixup soon became known as the liveliest live act around.

The music was a true cross-over “mix-up”, with the band-members from diverse backgrounds collaberating to cover Mbakanga, Maskande, Jive and even a bit of Boeremusiek thrown in. There were legendary tours including performances at Jamesons & the Pool Club in Johannesburg, Indaba & the Mix in Cape Town, the Rainbow in Pinetown and CAW outside Durban.

A gig with Jive Mixup was inevitably a 3-hour marathon with the audience trying to out-do the band, while the 3-piece trombone/sax/violin front-line showed off their semi-choreographed moves in between playing tightly arranged harmonies, and Winston’s haunting saxophone solos churning the major scale in a way that would make any blues-man proud.
