Today, Sango releases his newest single, “Drifted,” featuring Jayla Darden. The track arrives on the heels of “Amen,” Sango’s contribution to Drake’s new album For All the Dogs, and sees Sango tackling personal experiences of grief that come from growth. Co-produced by Kaytranada and Savon, the song’s hook lulls listeners into ruminating with Sango. Speaking about the song, Sango shared:
“The song reflects on the difficulty of moving on from a childhood relationship, highlighting the challenges and growth that come with it. The cover art is a personal touch, using my grandma’s prom picture to pay homage to my family roots. The photo perfectly captures the essence of the song.”
“Drifted” is the second single from his forthcoming album North Vol. 2.
The Seattle-based producer, who has quietly amassed a massive catalog that explores the entire spectrum of music, from the baile funk of his celebrated Da Rocinha series to the lush soul of his 2018 album In The Comfort Of, his production for artists like Tinashe, Bryson Tiller, GoldLink and more, as well as his cult classic remixes of artists like Aaliyah, Drake, Little Dragon, The Weeknd and more — he’s done it all.
He is part of the Los Angeles collective Soulection. At the young age of 12, Sango started producing music alongside his older brother and his friends. His work mainly focuses on hip-hop and soul-influenced beats that, over the years, have been able to come together as his own distinctive, innovative sound. He is a master of Brazilian funk samples, electronic beats, and demonstration of cultural unity through sound.
