Anuar Zain-New Album

Written by kaitor on 10:09 PM

Anuar Zain has come out with his new album but there is a lot of comments behind the process of producing the album. Most of Malaysian asked, why Anuar Zain choose Indonesian composer. ? Now days many Indonesian songs broadcast in Malaysia radio station. That means more and more Indonesian artist will come to Malaysia. Some of our Malaysian artist jealous and try to influence the audience to band Indonesian music. Em.. it not a good attitude, I guess it good to have them in our music industry so that we can improve ours. We learn from them.. :) now it is the time to make changers and show the world that Malaysian music is good as they are or we might better than them. All we have to do is to adapt changers in our music industry. The rules is simple, who give the best among the best then you will be on top.I do agree with Anuar Zain, he doesn’t care what is the nationality of the composer but we have to get the best quality. It doesn’t mean Malaysian composer is not good but Anuar Zain have a power to choose the best composer for him self. He also had try to ask song from a local composer but it not fulfill what he want. He had choose 7 songs from Indonesian composer and 3 songs from Malaysian composer in his new album Anuar Zain.

Anuar Zain had spend almost RM100,000 just for his new album. Anuar Zain realize Malaysia music industry market was down around 10 years but he still put hope to get the money back soon with his new album. I guess Anuar Zain had made a right choice to work with Indonesian composer and it might an advantage for him to sell his album in Indonesia. Wanna success here are some ingredient, what ever other people said, we have to stick with our decision. Good luck Anuar Zain.

Project Pop's Dangdut is the Music of My Country

Written by kaitor on 5:48 AM

Project Pop come with their creative music Dangdut is the Music of My Country, a song in which dangdut has been fused with metal music!. Project Pop from Bandung, Indonesia and known as the fun lyric as their trademark . All the members are from comedy group Padhyangan. There are almost same as Senario in Malaysia who produce music and at the same time work as a comedians . Dangdut was born in Indonesia and has spread to neighboring countries such as Malaysia and some parts of the Philippines. The music is lively and has musical influences from different cultures namely Indian, Arabic and of course, Malay. The word "dangdut" is thought to have originated from the dang-dang-dut-dut sound that comes from the Indian drum tabla which gives the music its heartbeat. The lyrics given to the music are often blatant in issues such as life sufferings, love betrayals, and discontentment towards the political powers that be. In other words, dangdut is supposedly the voice of the poor and oppressed.

I had watched their video clip and it fresh with additional metal music and hip hop. You can download or watch the video clip on You Tube.




I really hope artist in Malaysia can make some different in their music and be more creative. Some of malaysian artist jealous to Indonesian artist because Indonesian music always played on a local radio station.But we must remember the rules only the best product will attract audience, radio station is followed what the listener want. Maybe some said it will never happened if the radio station didn't play their songs.. remember now days internet is the important medium.. so common malaysian artist be different in your music and more creative. You cam make the different.. :)

Budak Lapuk

Written by kaitor on 5:11 AM



Budak Lapuk from Matahari Animation & Production Sdn Bhd one of the new animation film will screen soon on Hari Raya. This film also had been short listed in the Film Festival Malaysia 2007 (FFM07). The story of this film is about 3 friends known as Budak Lapuk adapted from the Pendekar Bujang Lapuk. As a Malaysian I was proud because this kind of film is new in Malaysia. If we compare with the other country, we are too far left behind from them in this industry. It is a good try and hopefully next time it will improve a lot. To be hones I also not had put attention on Malaysian animation. The other Malaysian animation film I know is Anak-Anak Sidek and it broadcast on TV9. If you have any information of Malaysian Animation please fell free to leave a comment so that others reads know it.. me too.. :)

" You Are The Music In Me" -High School Musical 2 from Jaclyn Victor and Vince

Written by kaitor on 6:38 PM

I believe you all know about the High School Musical 2. In High School Musical last year attracted millions of viewers with its regular telecasts on the Disney Channel, spawned a best-selling franchise and produced a soundtrack that went on to become the best-selling album of 2006. It also won an Emmy for Outstanding Children’s Programme while stars like Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron became household names. It encourage them to come out High School Musical 2.

Malaysias is lucky because Disney roped in two of the top Malaysian singers Jaclyn Victor and Vince Chong to record a cover of You Are The Music In Me from High School Musical 2. Jaclyn Victor spoke to the media during a recent press conference.
“I’m thrilled for the opportunity to sing You Are The Music In Me. I’m especially thrilled to sing on the soundtrack of a movie that embodies believing in yourself and following your dreams because these are familiar themes in my life and career,” gushed the first-ever Malaysian Idol.

Chong leapt at the opportunity when he found out that he will be singing with Victor.

“I had so much fun last year being part of the Asian version of Breaking Free from High School Musical. When I found out that I’ll be singing with Jaclyn for High School Musical 2, I just had to be part of it,” he said.

The Akademi Fantasia 2003 winner loves how the show is having a positive influence on the kids.

Apart from singing the Malaysian version of You Are The Music In Me, Jaclyn and Vince also cut a Bahasa Malaysia version entitled Kau Muzik Di Hatiku that is available on the High School Musical 2 soundtrack.

Protest To Festival Filem Malaysia 20 (FFM20)

Written by kaitor on 11:12 PM



As usual I will spent some time to watch Melodi start on 12.30 PM. This show will be on air for one hour. This is one of my medium to know about what going on in malaysian music and entertainment industry. Today Melodi had talking about the FFM20. I had post in this blog about Festival Filem Malaysia 20 (FFM20) . It was normal in Malaysian industry, when one film or song win awards there must be a protest. It again happened in FFM20 when some of them said that CINTA not a best film and should not receive the award. The best university in Malaysia, Universiti Malaya (UM) had arranged the conference to discuss about the FFM20 result. What ever they done the result is still same, CINTA is the best film in FFM20. My point here is no need to busy talking about the past but if everyone cares about this, why not come together and discuss how the procedures and the criteria that must be fulfill in order to be award as a BEST FILM. Maybe the procedure that we are using now is not suitable and need some changers. Remember judgers are the one who have the power to select the BEST FILM. :)

LINDA ONN wear kebaya dress specifically for AMERICA'S 2007 ACADEMY AWARD

Written by kaitor on 8:49 PM



I still remember, i had watch Melodi talking about LINDA ONN dress for AMERICA'S 2007 ACADEMY AWARD and become most controversial in MALAYSIA. She didn't wear it and failed to appear on the red carpet for the simple reason that the dress she's supposed to be wearing was deemed unpatriotic. At the end she wear that dress in ANUGERAH ERA 2007. My point now is why she refuse to dress up it for AMERICA'S 2007 ACADEMY AWARD? I believe she will be more well known after shown in the red carpet AMERICA'S 2007 ACADEMY AWARD. She said she didn't like that cloth, so why she use it in ANUGERAH ERA 2007? em.. whatever.. she the only one know the reason.
