Tipping a hat to the late Detroit legend

On the latest episode of Mass Appeal’s Rhythm RouletteSango does his damndest with three randomly selected records and an arsenal of J Dilla‘s hallmark drum sounds.

HEAR: Xavier Omär and Sango’s Hypnotic Remix of Paul McCartney’s “Wonderful Christmastime”

Pulling from Splice’s recently released sample pack, the Seattle-via-Grand-Rapids producer rifles through his haul from Holy Cow Records, and quickly gets to work. Settling on the soulful soundtrack to Richard Pryor’s 1978 film, Blue Collar, and the late-80s gospel flair of Countess Cathleen, Sango stitches a pair of breakneck suites together with effortless proficiency, and even shares some of his golden rules of production (“Don’t overthink your drums.”)

HEAR: Drake Meets J Dilla on This Eerily-Fitting Sango Remix of “30 For 30 Freestyle”

Recently, the producer appeared on an episode of Sama’an Ashrawi‘s The Nostalgia Mixtape podcast, where he discussed his earliest influences and teased a grip of unreleased Daft Punk remixes. He dropped his sophomore studio album, In The Comfort Of at the top of 2018 via Last Gang Records.
