New Track: Set Me Free – Mpho & J.A.S (ft. Blossom)

He scooped NEW LEASE MUSIC’s Music Video of the Week title for singles, ‘The Moment/The Takeover’ and now J.A.S is back, teaming up Innocent Mpho Seema – otherwise known  MPHO – for a brand new infectious housey number, entitled ‘Set Me Free’.

Their latest offering boasts a bombastically heavy tribal-esque bass with blissful vocals, provided by Blossom, giving the club filler a sweet lick.

The two met back in 2015, when they discover a common love for unique house music, leading to the start of their collective, Mpho & J.A.S. Their first single titled, ‘Ngiyakholwa’, generated attention on radio and online.

Away from the collective, MPHO has made a name for himself as a pianist for big band jazz group, ODD Meter and also as a percussionist for PolyrithmiX and Nubia Soul. The Music and Production graduate played drums for CRC Music band, before delving into the house music scene, co-founding the House band, Sa Kosha ke Lerole.

As well as being a reputable rapper in South Africa, J.A.S (Jayd Soliar), puts life-long passion of house and electronic music into co-founding Tiger X, which garnered support from major tastemakers across his homeland and globally.

Let your weekend start now and hit the play button on ‘Set Me Free.’ If you’re feeling this track, look out for their album, coming out later in the year. Enjoy and Happy Good Friday!
