UK MUSIC / NEW ARTIST: MPHO – ‘BOX N LOCKS’

mpho

MPHO is a British talent like no other. A genre-defying singer, songwriter and producer, she has enormous global crossover pop potential. Already a name to drop amongst people in the know, MPHO is set to be one of the most exciting names of 2009.

Her debut single on Parlophone/Wall of Sound, ‘Box N Locks’ is produced by acclaimed maestro, Switch. The track samples the legendary guitar hook from the Martha and the Muffins new wave hit, ‘Echo Beach’.

MPHO was born in apartheid South Africa and raised in a racially mixed family of musicians and political activists in Brixton. Her life story is as colourful as her music, but the overriding theme of both has been MPHO’s determination to find her own space, to define herself on her own terms.

I listened to the single Box N Locks and it has a very early 1980s pop vibe going on.  It’s also very catchy, light and radio friendly (which is of great importance these days).

Most if not all of the mainstream stations should have this track on their playlists. If this is not the case then they clearly have issues…….. 

But I hope it’s a hit for Mpho and I wish her the best of luck.

  1. Your right TY..yeah.Some people call her “MoFo..but pronounced .”MMMM-PO” has been on the scene for TIME now, many collabs with UK artists. I think she has had a couple of children which has seen her take the time out. She keeps threatening to go big….so i hope this time is her time.
