Sango just gifted his fans so hard today with the release of a bunch of tracks that he produced from 2009 – 20012. For each year, he wrote a little breakdown to give fans an idea of where he was coming from as he produced these beats. I’ve posted those below along with the music. Be sure to support Sango on Bandcamp here.
2009 to 2012 beats by myself.
This year was rather odd for me (musically). I felt like I was never going to get better and needed to find myself. 100% of the time, I would only make beats when I needed to…fearing the of loss of my skills or when I felt it was time to work w/ Waldo…at the time (Waldo Da Don) lol. Jokes! Overall I want to display what my musical space and creative efforts sounded like at the time.
I graduated high school this year. I still feel like this year was my most productive year in beats. I made around 240 beats that year. I also was super busy w/ sports. I ran cross country and track during high school. I was a decent athlete and had some pretty amazing accomplishments. Nonetheless, I felt I finally was able to learn when and where I could create. The summer of 2010 was a rather heartbroken one. It was ruined by this TERRIBLE girlfriend I had. I hated dating. Much of this music was due to post break-up free time as well. Aside from that, this year was also the year I met my wife, Angela. Later in the year of 2010, my beats got more emotional and I felt like I was putting new effort into it.
It’s hard to explain this year in one paragraph. I would say it was experimental. I was definitely finding a sound of my own. My sampling was getting better. My drum work was getting better. My mixing and arrangements were a little better as well. One thing I would say is that I was stuck a lot this year. I felt like I needed to make weird stuff just to get it out my system. I also fell into a sampling hole from time to time eventually feeling limited to even making beats from my own melodies. You can probably hear the different ideas that went through my head and hear the inconsistency/stubbornness. Overall, I love this work from 2011.
I put my first release out on Soulection called “Trust Me” this year. This year was exciting. Things were moving fast and I felt like my music was finally being heard with the right ears. I also changed my whole producing experience by switching DAWs from FL Studio to Reason 5. Best mistake I ever made. Shout out Wil Pino for that CD copy.
Blessings and thanks for listening.
Dedicated to my brother Erick for getting me into music.
released 25 August 2015
XVII is going to be a big deal very soon. The more I go out in LA, the more I hear his remixes and original tracks and I am not mad at this at all. “Pity Party” from Melanie Martinez is not something I would normally post but this remix (especially after the second drop) is just too catchy and smooth not share.
Pity Party remixes coming August 28th via Atlantic Records
I know I’ve been uber weak with the updates over the last few months, but thats only because I have been working on relaunching my blog empire with several new sites. With that being said, I’m still doing my best to sift through the tracks on soundcloud each week, and I’m still finding all sorts of new gems.
This week check out new music from Kweku Collins, Whispa, rare, Luca Lush, Mike Xanax, and many more!
2 in one day? Maybe I should listen to music a bit more often.. Andrew Luce has a solid ear and his production quality is top shelf for sure. The shining star on this mixtape is the collab with XVII, who we already know will be taking over 2016. Fire Fire Fire. Enjoy!
I love it when I actually enjoy all of the songs on an EP. Kewku Collins hit a home run with his “Say it Here, While it’s Safe” EP and if you support good music, you should pick it up on itunes at the link below. Can’t wait to see this kid perform this live!
The new EP from Kweku Collins released 7/21 via Closed Sessions.
This was a fun listen. Lil B and Chance The Rapper have both been known to make music I enjoy and now they have come together on a dope little mixtaoe full of freestyles. Don’t expect to hear clean lines on every track, this is pretty raw but in all the best ways. Enjoy.
Just playing catchup here. I couldn’t post 12 without throwing up some of the stuff I found over the last month and a half or so. I’m not going to link everything up but you should be able to track most of the artists I’ve featured just through soundcloud.
