The tracks are produced by Anthony Tidd (The Roots / Musiq Soulchild) and Istiks (Morgan Zarate of Spacek and Yan Murawski), Having cut her teeth with vocal features with Bugz, Ty, US3, Spacek and more in recent years, this EP represents the launch of Mpho Skeef as one of the most important female artists and songwriters the UK has produced in recent years and will be accompanied by a number of UK live shows.'
