Most of us are familiar with the story of three guys whose paths intersected at a rooftop party in December 2010 to freestyle on stage in what was to become a monumental performance for the trio. The chemistry between the three guys (vocalist J’ something, trumpeter Mo-T and producer Dr Duda) was quite obvious and they instantly came to the realisation that this was the future of dance music.

That fateful day is now remembered as the day the dance music powerhouse that is known as Micasa was created. It didn’t take them long to establish themselves as a force within the Mzansi entertainment scene, as their first official single “These Streets” would change their lives forever. Their self-titled debut album promptly shot to the top of numerous charts across South Africa  and has since gone on to achieve multi-platinum status with well over eighty thousand units sold.

And just to underline the sheer quality of the album, it has generated 5 massive hits including “Heavenly Sent”,“La Vida”, and “All the Glory”, which has seen the group,achieves idol status on the House/Dance music scene. 2012 was undoubtedly a landmark year for Micasa, it saw them walk away with three significant SAMA awards including ‘Record of the Year’ and then open up for international acts like Drake,  John Legend, and Kool and the Gang.

They then went on an African invasion, performing in 12 nations across the continent to widespread positive response. A definite highlight in 2013 was receiving an invite to perform at Barack Obama’s Presidential Inauguration in January 2013, a moment lead vocalist J’ something says he will “never forget”.
