Song of the Day: Drifting – Escapism Refuge (ft. Zeb Samuels)

Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to ESCAPISM REFUGE – one of the highly promising producers to burst up through Johannesburg’s burgeoning underground scene.

Earlier this month, he dropped an A-side double release, ‘Drifting’ and ‘Misfit’ via the indie label Deep Heads. After much deliberation, ‘Drifting’ was chosen as today’s top track for its floaty and spine-tingling combo of heavy hip-hop-esque drive and the sweet lick of the piano keys.

To date he’s released three hot EPs and won the praise of BBC 6Music’s Gilles Peterson, Soulection and Belgian’s Lefto. He also has a string of high-profile collaborations and a full LP in the pipeline…but for now, have a listen to the irresistibly good ‘Drifting.’

New Track: I Want You – JAS x Mpho (ft. Nevita)

Within two weeks of featuring track ‘Hell Or Heaven’, J.A.S makes his presence known, teaming up with long-term collaborator Mpho with a seriously dope house number entitled, ‘I Want You.’

The three-minute sultry club filler features the smooth vocals of Nevita, who previously lent her voice to J.A.S‘ track, ‘The Moment‘.

J.A.S and Mpho previously stole the limelight with track, ‘Set Me Free‘ which was named Song of the Month by the blog in April.

New Track: Hell or Heaven – J.A.S (ft. Bo Malone, Sy’Defect & AJ Lyrics)

Just as I was getting over the phenomena of collaborative sizzler, ‘The Massacre’ – premiered on NEW LEASE MUSIC last month – J.A.S doesn’t let up and slammed another hot one entitled, ‘Hell or Heaven.’

For his latest release, the South African rapper/producer teamed up with rappers Bo Malone, Sy’ Defect and AJ Lyrics who take turns in firing flows over erratically-dope bars. Sy’ Defect  previously work with J.A.S for tracks The Moment/The Takeover.

Take time out for ‘Hell or Heaven’…and if you’re feeling this one, head over to SoundCloud and grab your copy for FREE! Enjoy…
