Weekend catch-up: 5 things you might have missed

Videos, new music & more…

 

While you were out sinking pints and spending too much money, the music world kept on spinnin’.

Here’s a little catch up on what went on since Friday.

 

Joni Sledge passes away aged 60

It was a sad weekend for disco, as Joni Sledge of legendary group Sister Sledge passed away. We had the utmost pleasure of interviewing Joni Sledge in June of 2015, who imparted just a small bit of her musical knowledge on us.

“Nobody is exempt from the dance floor. Disco is a genre that ultimately brought people of different creeds and colours together. It’s about the freedom to express who you are without any excuses and to forget the stresses and strains of the day.”
