Kurt Darren is undisputedly the king of Afrikaans dance music. The crooner has been making hits ever since he burst onto the scene back in 1995 and now, over two decades later, Kurt proves he’s still got it! The crooner is back with his 23rd studio album ‘Laat Die Dansvloer Brand’ which features the hit ‘Jy’s n’ Legend’ and the title track which serves as his next single.
The new album features 14 brand new tracks which feature an array of dancefloor anthems and some exciting pop ballads. Kurt has always been able to write impeccable dance tracks and the songs on this record are catchy and radio-friendly – everything you expect from a Kurt Darren record. Kurt proves he’s a jack of all trades as he effortlessly delivers stunning vocal performances – something he continues to perfect every day.
The record is filled with perfect langarm-ready sokkie tracks but, to keep things interesting, Kurt has a few surprises up his sleeve on this record. He tapped Snotkop and Leah for the ‘Selfie Song’ (a track that has the potential to be 2018’s biggest summer anthem) while he shows off his emotional side on his English single ‘Depth Of My Heart’ – a duet with Corlea Botha. Like most of us, Kurt fell in love with Ed Sheeran’s fantastic new album ‘Divide’ and covered ‘Perfect’ – his favourite track off the album on the record as well.
Kurt spent a long time ensuring that this project was one of his best yet – but the wait is finally over! ‘Laat Die Dansvloer Brand’ is now available at all good music stores and on your favourite digital platform. If you’re a Kurt Darren fan, you’ll be impressed with the star’s new collection of tracks. Support local music and get your copy today!
