He has played an important role in uplifting the house scene in Pretoria with his continued dedication, being involved in the ‘Capitol House Kollective Series’,Sisco Umlambo together with Arthur-John “Art Jones” Bukenya formed the production outfit Sis ‘n Jones, which instantly created a mark in the local industry with their fresh new production sound as well as their LIVE performances. Their combined talents and natural ability to produce unique house music was rewarded, when they received top honours in the Westend Music search, with two of their singles being selected for International release. 2005 saw Sis ‘n Jones release their summer single ‘Set Your Mind Free’ the sound was mature, the timing was right and the single was a smash hit! ‘Set Your Mind Free’ was licensed to a number of compilations and was on high demand for remixes by local & international producers. In 2007, Sis n’ Jones released their full debut album , “No Barriers”, due to the unfortunate passing of Art Jones in 2009, Sis n Jones ceased and set Sisco on a solo career with a multitude of single releases and remixes as well as a debut solo Album in 2013 earning the respect of many fans of South African House Music.
