Another awesome project from Sango. You can buy Da Rocinha 3 here. More info down below.
“Da Rocinha 3 is about keeping the funk roots true and paying homage to the ones that helped start it. I want to respect and show Rocinha in a positive light with this record while staying true to my sound. “
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
Soulection is on a roll today! Sango just liberated this awesome beat from his hard drive about 20 hours ago and now you get to peep it right here on AlwaysHustle. “Papers” holds down Sangos style, with a dope vocal sample that is fucked with just enough with out making it too annoying. As for the rest of the beat it’s everything we love about Sango: Super chill with a banging bass line and superb drum selection. You can never go wrong with this guy and if you will be in one of the cities posted below, you betetr go see him live before that shit gets too expensive.

It wasn’t very hard to find music for this weeks episode of “Feeling This”. I wanted to expand a bit from the first playlist by digging into a variety of new sounds, crossing into several sub genres that you might not normally find on AlwaysHustle.com. I found myself playing these songs all week long as really using these tracks as the sound track for my week. I’ve been walking around a lot more vs driving, and having this music to keep me going through my daily work has really made it a lot easier for me to focus. Life is good and so is this music. Thanks for listening. Links for all of the artists can be found below.
I’ve been playing this one all day. I just love how you can always recognize where Sango puts his touches on a track. He’s quickly become one of my top 3 favorite producers. The last 45 seconds of “Love Again” are perfect. Hopefully I can write something over that little bit soon. Info on how to purchase below. I’ll upload a loop I made of that ending soon.
Taken from Songs To Make Up To, out June 12th on Future Classic / Fool’s Gold
There are so many crazy names on this track.I can honestly say too that I called it when it came to these 3 all rising up. Funny how that works isn’t it?
On a side note, I apologize for my lack of posts recently bit things have really been moving for me. I’m out in Austin now for SXSW so keep sending me your music and bump this one real loud!
I just got my mac back! This means you can expect some more consistent posting from me for now. Last week there was a ton of great music on soundcloud including tracks from The Kount, Bobby Nourmand, Sango, Waldo, and many more.
Waldo crushes another amazing beat, crafted by some of the very best doing this whole rap thing right now. Fortune, Gravez and Sango put a pulse to the soulful lyrics that Waldo consistently delivers to his tracks. I need as much of this as I can get.
Straight up I’ll say this album good. You need to put it on when you know you are going to be stuck in your car for a while or if you just have an hour to kill, throw this on and just take it in. Marvel Alexander puts himself out there on “DON’T DIE YET” which appears to be produced by just about everybody I love right now (Sango, Kaytraanada, BBNG, Gravez). Now on paper this looks like it could be album of the year, but after a listen you can tell that Marvel Alexander still has a ways to go before he’s catching comparisons to Kid Cudi and Goldlink. With all that being said, I like this album and it’s far and away better than a lot of the stuff I’m hearing from the hip hop world right now.
