About Mi Casa
South African dance juggernauts Mi Casa have been storming the charts since 2011, melding house music, cutting-edge Afrobeats, and modern jazz textures into rousing, meditative sonic journeys. The trio of producer Dr. Duda, vocalist/guitarist J'Something, and trumpeter Mo-T came together during a nightclub jam session in Johannesburg in 2011, and quickly built an exciting creative rapport. They released their self-titled debut LP later that year. While Dr. Duda was already a respected producer on the national stage, early Mi Casa singles like “These Streets” allowed Mo-T's classic jazz influences to shine, while the earnest storytelling of “La Vida” put a loving spotlight on J'Something's Portuguese heritage. The group's meteoric rise has led to consistent chart dominance: They went to No. 1 with their 2013 sophomore LP Su Casa, formed their label 34 Music shortly thereafter, and have constantly broadened their house and nu-disco sonic palette while incorporating a variety of organic percussion instruments.
