Sir LSG - Moving Circles
South African House Music artist Sir LSG debuts his first album, a stunningly crafted piece of art for which he pulled together an impressive collective of international vocalists, musicians and collaborators. Titled ‘Moving Circles’, the longplayer represents the concept of life seen as a journey. It highlights events of love, life, inspiration, sadness and loneliness in one big turn. Just as there's a start and an end to everything, the musical journey begins with 'Departure' and takes you through different walks of life, before getting to 'Arrival'.

While South Africa has been at the forefront of a global House Music revival for many years now, Sir LSG has been tipped of as the “one to watch” inter alia - leading industry US download-store Traxsource put him in their Top 20 African House producers of the year in 2014. Since his first single release in 2011, LSG has perfected his magical soulful and jazzy, yet clearly afro-influenced sound, now culminating in this well rounded long-player, which took him four years to complete.

'Moving Circles' features renowned crooners like Germany’s Clara Hill, Chicago’s Carla Prather, UK’s Joseph Junior, South Africa’s new RandB sensation Ayanda Jiya and established musician Zano, all of whom sound their best and complement the beautifully crafted grooves and soundscapes. Co-produced by one of South Africa's fast-growing piano players, Thandi Ntuli, and one can feel that more first-league jazz musicians enjoyed contributing to Sir LSG’s tunes.

GOGO Music proudly presents this album release which assuredly will be cementing Sir LSG’s reputation as one of the most exciting artists on the scene. With his tasteful and innovative recombination of traditional and contemporary electronic elements, he put together a masterly crafted testament about life or as he puts it, “The representation of people as constantly moving objects, to reach a certain destination or form, is depicted in the music, highlighting ordinary experiences - through highs and lows, we keep on moving.”

PRESS REACTIONS AND REVIEWS

Frisky Rhythms (UK)
Sir LSG - Moving Circles - GOCD 010

The latest release from Ralf GUM's GOGO Music is the eagerly anticipated long player from South Africa's Sir LSG. There's an emphasis on musicianship and artistry that doesn't rely on any gimmicks or cliched sounds. High on the originality stakes, the music makes no attempt to sound like anything you've heard from anyone else nor does it make reference to specific influences. You can expect a soulful journey tinged with jazzy vibes and underpinned with gentle but gnawing African rhythms. Every single one of the vocalists deliver performances that sit beautifully into the productions, oozing with soul and emotion while the rhythms persuade you to move your hips and tap your toes (at the very least). As a project, the album has taken four years to reach fruition an trust me it's worth great value for every single minute that's been spent lovingly crafting each of the tracks. by Dean Serafini
