Sir LSG’s ‘Sandcastle’ features South African soul-sensation Ayanda Jiya on vocals and is the first single taken from his long awaited debut album – not yet titled – which is forthcoming mid of 2017.
Sir LSG’s career in the music industry started in 2006 when he entered the South African scene as a DJ. Soon he ventured into music production, too, but it took a while until his first release saw the day of light. It was when Ralf GUM heard his production ‘Sax In The City’; he signed it to his record label GOGO Music and released it in 2011.
Since then, the brilliant Sir LSG showed enormous growth and has become a fixture on the label. He remixed and released various songs on GOGO Music, including his outing ‘All I Am’ featuring Brian Temba & Kafele, which was a massive radio-hit in South Africa.
Furthermore, the incredible musical skill of Sir LSG – who has managed to create his very own signature soulful sound, comprising Afro influences grooves paired with soulful-jazzy instrumentation – has become desired by many other artists and labels. It is not surprising that Sandcastle showcases this combination in superb manner.
Ayanda Jiya adds her gorgeous talent to the song. Growing up in a musical family, she was exposed and influenced by a lot of genres, mostly Gospel, Jazz, Neo Soul and RnB from an early age. Over time she developed exceptional song-writing skills, which granted her nominations for the ‘Best R&B Single’ at the Metro FM Awards in 2015 for her hit “Go Go Girl”. Ayanda’s effortless vocal performance confirms that she’s an outstanding talent deserving further recognition.
Contributing a remix is Josh Milan, who should not need an introduction to music lovers anymore. One half of legendary production team ‘Blaze’ which heavily influenced countless fellows and the house music scene in general since mid-eighties.
He lately focused on his own imprint ‘Honeycomb Music’ with mutual success. Working with some of the best vocalists in the scene, he provided a constant stream of top quality releases on his label. His busy schedule includes in demand performances all over the world, writing for Elements of Life, Louie Vega and many others as well. Josh’s remix of ‘Sandcastle’ is a sure salvation for the soul.
GOGO Music rejoices to start into its 16th year of existence with this first taste of Sir LSG’s forthcoming long-player, a well written piece of music, which already hit the Top 10 singles on Traxsource few days after its release.
