Since a child, I have lived and breathed music, but never had the actual chance to live my dream of writing about all things music. Now I can! Hope you enjoy my ramblings about music!

DJ Naaldekoker’s first two singles The Meltdown featuring
Goodluck and Ek Smaak Jou featuring JR were instant radio hits and garnered him
a loyal and growing fan base. Now he will prove that he is no fly-by-night DJ
with the release of his breath-taking new single, Lost in Here featuring ISO’s
Richard Brokensha. “I’m a massive fan of Richard, and of his work in both ISO
and kidofdoom. He has a very distinctive voice and that’s definitely something
I look out for when selecting artists to collaborate with. Along with his great
voice, Richard is a pro. He brought an amount of perfectionism to the process,
making sure his takes were absolutely perfect before giving them the go ahead.
We wanted to create something light, but with an edge, and after many hours of
working on shaping and fine-tuning the track, I’ve ended up with something that
I am proud to present: My third single, DJ Naaldekoker feat Richard Brokensha,
titled Lost in Here,” says DJ Naaldekoker. In other great news, DJ Naaldekoker
is the latest find for top Australian electro label, Central Station Records.
He has recently been signed to the label and will be releasing his tracks
internationally in the near future. This is a great opportunity for Cape Town’s
DJ Naaldekoker to represent South Africa in one of the biggest Electronic Dance
Music scenes in the world. Australia is considered the mecca of electronic
dance music worldwide, known for hosting some of the world’s biggest electronic
music festivals such as Big Day Out, Parklife and Creamfields. The world’s best
producers and DJ’s can be seen at these festivals, which often have more than
50 000 people in attendance.
