First Listen! Ralf GUM feat. Omar – Love Core (Sir LSG Vocal Mix) (GOGO Music)
Sometimes you happen to listen to things which, altogether, sound like natural… Like an evidence! This is nothing but the proper of music cleverly thought and masterfully put together. And this is pretty much what to expect on this smooth joint.
‘Love Core’ marks the reunion between GOGO music label head Ralf GUM and Brit-Soul icon Omar Lye Fook MBE.
The latter once again, makin’ proof of his ability to express himself in many different territories. South African producer Sir LSG subtly spicin’ up the whole with an Afro/Jazz feel along with Kafele Bandele on trumpet…
A definitive masterpiece, ‘Love Core’ is one of the numeroous highlights from Ralf GUM’s ‘In My City’ album. This along with ‘Free (Is All I Wanna Be)’ featuring Portia Monique. But also ‘The Pap’ featuring Monique Bingham. Not to mention ‘With Her Hand’ and ‘In The City’ along with Hugh Masekela.

Lesego Sefako (Sir LSG) began his career as a DJ in 2006 whilst studying to become an electrical engineer at the University of The Witwaterstrand. It seems the love for music soon took precedence as the young Sir LSG started collecting records. Soon after co-founding Hood Natives in 2007 with 3 other DJ’s based in Soweto, he enrolled at the Soul Candi Institute of Music. There he learnt more about electronic music production. He then went to the Academy of Sound Engineering to do a two year diploma majoring in Music Production & Audio Post Production.
It was the 2008 Southern African Music Conference that became a defining juncture in Sir LSG‘s music path. There, he caught the ear of DJ Christos, who since became his mentor. With thanks to the relationship with the latter, German producer Ralf GUM came across LSG‘s ‘Sax In The City’ in 2011. The track finally found its way to light when released on GOGO Music. With remixes from Raw Artistic Soul, and fellow South African DJ/producer Nastee Nev, it reached the second spot on Traxsource‘s top singles chart.
On a solo path since breaking away from Hood Natives, Sir LSG has since done remixes for Ralf GUM, Andy Compton and Nathan Adams among others. He has also collaborated with Brian Temba, a South African R&B singer/songwriter and trumpeter Kafele on a song titled ‘All I Am’. A track which enjoyed great airplay on South African radio stations and became a local dance floor anthem.
In 2014, Sir LSG was voted by Traxsource at Number 20 on the Top 100 Afro House producers of the year.
