Southern swagger, Jamaican blood, with a South African name, Masego is a Gumbo of culture and creativity. His music is best described as TrapHouseJazz. He’s the fusion of Pharrell, Michael Jackson and Jamie Fox both on and off the stage.
His journey began on YouTube. He put his 10,000 hours in live looping with his saxophone, beat machine and keyboard. Masego used to rip beats from SoundCloud’s future beat and house producers and add saxophone over them then head to Instagram and dedicate the song to a curly hair beauty from his explore page. His soulful singing and his jazzy personality colored every track and heart and caught the attention of many producers like Kaytranada, Sounwav, and new greats like KRS and Medasin.
The Pink Polo EP with Texas Producer Medasin was the result of his SoundCloud antics. Their song Girls That Dance launched Masego and the TraphouseJaZZ band on a world tour. Japan, France, England, Germany and more got to experience Masego’s unique live show. Girls that Dance found it’s way to Jazzy Jeff who later reached out and invited Masego to his modern day XMen Mansion school for the gifted.
Masego nurtured his superpowers in Jazzy Jeff’s pool house, where legendary musicians and singers were constantly pouring in. Inspiration was high and the spirit of collaboration was high.
Jazzy Jeff’s experience inspired him to work on hundreds of records. Masego decided to drop another project,
He called it Loose Thoughts, a project full a energetic singles, more developed song writing and his beloved saxophone.
The glo up continues. Masego assists company Roland, design an electronic saxophone, garners the respect of fellow live loopers like, Kimbra, Wayne Brady and Ed Sheehan, travels the world once again selling out venues and demoing new music. He starts 2 Secret companies in Virginia, buys a fleet of party buses, and hints at a new another new project. The world will be watching.
