Making music for the airwaves


Golden Cloud commissioned Creatrix and Howard Music to create the music for the latest ‘Golden Moments’ radio campaign. The piece is a soft jazz tune that appeals to all target markets, incorporating lyrics in English, Afrikaans, isiZulu and Sesotho, explains Adam Howard.  

The jingle was created to permutate into a series of promo spots, opening and closing billboards and a backtrack to hold together the live elements on air. The laid-back jazzy track features jazz legend Themba Mkhize on keys, Ray Green on guitars and Margaret Motsage and Nokukhanya Dlamini on vocals helped by some fine children’s voices.

Also on the airwaves is the single S’dudla  from legendary kwaito super group TKZee. The group are launching a comeback with their long-awaited album Coming Home. They spent three weeks recording final tracks at Howard Music, based at Ministry Of Illusion.

Howard has produced, arranged and performed on the trio’s individual  album projects over the last few years (Tokollo Tshabalala, Kabelo Mabalane and Zwai Bala), with those albums picking up five South Africa Music Awards (SAMA).
