FMG – TOTI – KZN

Hiya

Hope you are well!

KZN SUNSET

Friday night was my second appearence at FMG, Toti, KZN. Neale the owner is a legend! I stayed at a place called The Bali Grand, this was the view from my bedroom as the sun was going down! Sometimes I am really spoilt when I travel and this was one of those occasions! I spent a few hours on the net doing some work before we went for dinner at his stunning resturant DeVine. Then headed off to the club. Colin aka Beyond Vision meet me at the club and we had a few laughs! The gig was great! Fantastic crowd! I should be back there later this year! If you’re heading towards to coast make sure you check out FMG, pumping sound system and a really awesome lazer!

Take Care!

CONGRATS TO THE ZA SHOW PODCAST

Issued by: The ZA Show Podcast

For Immediate Release:

CAPE TOWN PODCAST CELEBRATES 1 YEAR ANIVERSARY

CAPE TOWN, 10th July 2006 — The ZA Show Podcast, an English language weekly podcast that originates from Cape Town is celebrating their 1st year anniversary on the 17th of July 2006.

Their first show debuted on the 17th of July 2005 which helped pave the start of a new media revolution here in South Africa. The ZA Show is the first podcast to originate from Cape Town and the first locally produced podcast to bring the very best in South African content to the world. The show hosts, Glen & Bridgitte Verran bring a very informal, relaxed and down-to-earth dynamic to the show which aims to make the listener feel part of the show. The podcast features opinions on local news events, sports, the South African culture, sound-seeing tours of places visited, tourism info, interviews and playing the very best in South African podsafe music. Listener feedback also forms a vital part of the podcast too.

The ZA Show has attracted over 400 and growing listeners per show worldwide during the past year. The listener demographic consists of:

* Expatriates
* Past and future visitors to SA.
* Foreign listeners who have relational links to SA.
* Local listeners.
* Listeners who want to know more about SA.

Loyalty and good relationships form part of the show and its success.

The podcast is currently self funded and is open to monetization in the form of advertising and sponsorships on the podcast itself as well as on the podcast’s website.

Besides promoting podcasting in SA, The ZA Show is also promoting South African music in the podcasting community. This is done by urging SA artists and labels to register and upload tracks to the Podsafe Music Network http://www.podsafemusicnetwork.com . This website presents podcasters with a vast catalogue of music in many genres that they can play on their podcasts without having to worry about copyright infringement. This has been very successful in promoting independent artists worldwide. The ZA Show has attracted a good number of SA artists to the PMN so far and continues to help promote SA music internationally via the medium of podcasting.

Podcasting has taken the world by storm and has become a new media revolution worldwide, but unfortunately, due to the lack of affordable broadband and other factors, podcasting hasn’t had the opportunity to take off in a big way in South Africa.

A podcast is an Internet radio-style show that a listener can download to their computer. Free podcast subscription allows new shows to be downloaded automatically to the listener’s computer as they become available. Podcasting allows listeners to listen to their favourite shows on any device, any time and anywhere. Podcasting allows content that traditional media generally would not carry to be heard by anybody who has an interest in it.

The ZA Show anniversary show will be produced and released on the the 15th of July 2006.

Podcasts More Popular than Blogging

Nielsen: Podcasts More Popular than Blogging
July 12, 2006

Nielsen//NetRatings announced today that 6.6 percent of the U.S. adult online population, or 9.2 million Web users, have recently downloaded an audio podcast. 4.0 percent, or 5.6 million Web users, have recently downloaded a video podcast.

These figures put the podcasting population on a par with those who publish blogs, 4.8 percent, and online daters, 3.9 percent. To put this in perspective, though, Nielsen notes that podcasting is not nearly as popular as paying bills online, 51.6 percent, or online job hunting, 24.6 percent.

“The portability of podcasts makes them especially appealing to young, on-the-go audiences,” said Michael Lanz, analyst, Nielsen//NetRatings. “We can expect to see podcasting become increasingly popular as portable content media players proliferate,” he continued.

Young people are more likely than their older counterparts to engage in audio or video podcasting. Web users between the ages 18 and 24 are nearly twice as likely as the average Web user to download audio podcasts, followed by users in the 25-34 and 35-44 age groups, who were also more likely than the average Web user to do audio podcasting.

Video podcasters trended a little older, with 25-34 year olds indexing the highest. Web users above the age of 45 were less likely than average to engage in podcasting of either sort.

Apple Users Have Head Start with Podcasts

Among audio podcast listeners, Macworld is the No. 1 most-visited content site. Apple and iTunes are the No. 2 and 3 e-commerce sites visited by audio podcasters. The Apple connection is not as clear for video podcasters, who flock to Startrek.com among content sites. Live365.com and eMusic are the two most popular e-commerce sites for video podcasters.

“Competitors to the iPod are now in the marketplace, but Apple got a big head start,” said Lanz. “It will take time before other portable media players make significant in-roads with the early-adopters who are currently podcasting,” he continued.

MY NEW TUNE!!!

Hiya

My new tune is:

DEREK”TheBandit” VS Beyond Vision – Pick Up The Pieces

Produced by Colin & Derek

Here’s some reactions so far!!!

Pick Up The Pieces

DEREK”TheBandit” VS Beyond Vision – Pick Up The Pieces

Reactions:

Anton Nathrass – Resident – Elevate & ESP

A Tune with all the pieces in just the right places! A beautiful, melodic,
and uplifting tune that is peak time material. The track glides
melodically and breaks into absolute bliss as it pics up all the pieces
from there on in before it sends the dance floor into a frenzied rapture!
Tried and tested on the dance floor with great success! Thanks for
sharing!

10/10

Joe Cozzi – Department of Dance (USA)

Solid track Derek, good work, well produced. You should contact one of the artist’s on my label. His name is DJ Nito, he would support it on his weekly radio show.

James G – Resident ESP

“Pick up the pieces is officially an excellent floor filler. Without a doubt a tune that is instantly recognisable to the crowd. With it’s haunting melodies and subtle lyrics in the beginning it all comes together for a final and swift delivery of it’s key lead at which point hands are raised on the dance floor as they scream for more! An excellent example of the trance that can be made in this country with the right direction.”

Ian Betts – Six Thirty (UK)

Really liking your track – will be trying it out for sure

John Askew (UK)

hi mate. good to hear from you. thanks for the track. sounding pretty big. not quite the same style that i play really but I can see it being big!

Lonny – Emotive Sounds

Great tune, was wondering if it is already released?

I will upload the tune to myspace soon!

Hiya

Hope you are well!

Been very busy producing my new tune with Colin in Durban, he goes under the name of Beyond Vision, it is such an exciting time for me! I have finally found someone who is on the same wave length as me when it comes to producing!!!

DEREK”TheBandit” VS Beyond Vision – Pick Up The Pieces

Anton Nathrass have played it twice, once at ESP and at the Elevate Party on Saturday night in Joburg, hands in the air anthem!!

I am opening my own music publishing company in the next few weeks, as I am tired of the local publishers who have no idea about dance music…I will look after my own publishing and other produces who are interested! Welcome to the New Media Revolution!

Podcasting and Social Networking have just joined together by the incredible team at PodShow Inc. I invite you to go and have a look, it’s incredible http://www.podshow.com
