Sango is the kind of producer who’s one step ahead of the curve, one beat before the hype. He actually reminds me of Ta-ku: effortless talent with an endlessly PLUR persona. It’s no surprise that the pair both belong to the Huh, What & Where collective and Soulection family, who are notorious for quality above all else. I momentarily stopped breathing when I heard he was coming to Australia, but who needs breath when you have beats?
