It is a fair comment to pass that bands whose sound does not evolve, are somewhat archaic and stuck. Red Electrick have definitely made this their mantra, having developed a sound which, whilst instantly recognisable, is also very current. Their latest release "Young Again", echoes a similar aura to "Paul", their hit single from 2013, but this is bigger, and better, not too mention, featuring the Malta Philharmonic Orchestra.

Matthew James Borg, Raphael Tonna, Ivan Borg, Jonas Delicata and Peter Borg are without a doubt extremely talent musicians, with a true penchanct for live performances. Yet, the standout element surely has to be the distinctive vocal performance of Matthew James Borg, who has proven on countless occasions, that when the music is stripped back, his voice is vulnerable to the surrounding air, creating gooseflesh, leaving a mark, a deep meaning and an eventual yearning for more. 

Winners of the Best Band and the Best Song accolade at the 2014 Malta Music Awards solidified their position in the local music industry. In support of the single release, Red Electrick have issued a music video, produced by Stargate Studios, one which has already amassed more than 12,000 views on YouTube.

Dean Muscat, an accomplished male songwriter who co-wrote "Tomorrow", sung by Gianluca Bezzina during the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest, has recently turned his attention to becoming a lead vocalist, issuing his debut single, "Twentysomething". A guitar led ballad, with hints of wind chimes and a harmonica, there is a certain aura which quickly reminds the listener of a Ben Howard album track, one which stands out from the rest.

"Twentysomething", written and recorded by Dean Muscat at home, was then professionally mixed and mastered by Robin Ball and Ivan Jackman. Since being uploaded onto YouTube, it has amassed well over a 1,000 views, as well as a string of positive comments. Dabbling into the art of performance, Dean Muscat is hoping to spread around a positive message, one which brings out emotion.

Earlier today, during the afternoon, the artists, and the song titles were announced in a television programme, ending the endless speculation all over the internet, and the media in general.

One of the most interesting points it that rather than 16 entries, there will be 20, in order to ascertain a good level of talent, in terms of musicianship, and songwriting. Nevertheless, on the final night of the week long competition, only 16 will be in contention with 4 being eliminated during the first 3 nights.

'The Celebrity Night' is the new Saturday night show which will be broadcast on Saturday night at 20:30 on F Living Channel. The series which officially kicked off a couple of weeks ago, revolves around the one-to-one interviews, which speak of class, decadence and wit, and have become synonymous with Deo Grech's presenting style.

Domenique, a female vocalist, who recently gained prestige and notoriety as a result of her victory at the Summer Hit Song Contest 2014 with the song "Back To", written by Mark Scicluna and Emil Calleja Bayliss, is clearly on a high, having also been a semi-finalist in the Malta Eurovision Song Contest 2015. She is clearly the most recognisable guest in this week's episode. Nevertheless, she will not be along, and is set to be joined by Ġorg tad-Downats, a television and radio host, as well as Carlos Farrugia, a veteran actor.

Following the success of the second edition of the concert ‘The Prayer’, organized by Blue Circle Events and Aldo Busuttil, a new Christmas concert with a difference will be organized this year. When the lyrical singer was preparing material for his new album ‘Con Amore’ he got the idea of including other songs synonymous with the Christmas festivities. As the name of the album and the fourteen tracks imply, Christmas is the time to celebrate and spread the love The Lord Himself has shown us when he come amongst us as a human being.

The concert ‘Con Amore on Christmas’ will not only include traditional Christmas songs but also various songs starting from the Operatic and Neapolitan repertoire and modern day songs. From Naples we will listen to the Tarantella, and a collection of popular songs, which will certainly bring a smile to your face under the direction of Mro. Manoel Pirotta with the participation of the ‘La Voix’ choir under the direction of Mro. Joseph Chircop. Also from Naples we will hear a rendition of ‘O Sole Mio’ during which Aldo Busuttil will interpret the version ‘It’s Now or Never’ in honor of the legendary Elvis Presley on the eightieth anniversary of his career.

The Christmas songs will get the audience in the mood for this wonderful time of year and will include Mro. Pirotta's classical adaptation to the popular song ‘Santa Clause is Coming to Town’.  Other popular numbers include  Do Hear The People Sing’ from the musical ‘Les Miserables’, Mamma and Parlami D’Amore Mariu.

Other highlights will include various duets with guest artists Gaia Cauchi, Eleanor Cassar and Karl Luke Schembri who together with Aldo Busuttil will interpret Un Amore Cosi Grande, In Amore, Vivo Per Lei and Caro Gesu Bambino.
