21st April 2017, Johannesburg â€“ Last night, multi-platinum South African electro-hop duo, Locnville were nominated for a South African Music Award (SAMA) for their latest album Taste The Weekend.
The duo was nominated for Best Pop Album.
Andrew Chaplin, one half of the of the duo had this to say, â€œItâ€™s always great to be recognized for your work, and awards are a great way of confirming that. We put a lot of work and thought into the Taste The Weekend album, thereâ€™s some good competition this year, but Iâ€™m hoping we can take it.â€
Taste The Weekend was released in June 2016. The album was inspired by the sounds of future dancehall and the deep house scene of South Africa.
The album includes the hits singles Grapevine, Cold Shoulder, Taste The Weekend and the new single Sexy & Original.
Locnville, alongside such passionate SA talent as Hendrik Joerges and Sketchy Bongo, and proven International hit-makers Esjay Jones (Selena Gomez) & Trey Vittetoe (Miley Cyrus & Selena Gomez) and Narinder Singh (Timbaland), have produced an honest, bold coming of age statement â€“ a cinematic, edgy and mostly upbeat affair with hook-filled new material which will drag fans, new and old, on the next leg of their journey which started back in 2009, with Sun In My Pocket.
Twin brothers Andrew and Brian Chaplin (Locnville or previously LCNVL) have written numerous hits that are instantly memorable and now, after a year spent grafting and building a team in Los Angeles, they are poised to make even more musical memories with their latest body of work, through Warner Music South Africa.
