Sango releases “Quanto Tempo,” the Seattle DJ and producer’s second single off Da Rocinha 4 – the latest in his highly-anticipated series – out September 25th through Soulection Records. This new song, featuring Luccas Carlosand Jao, embraces the feeling of the Summer to Fall transition.

“It is a mix of Brazil’s northeast sound of brega funk and the sound of the Bay Area & Seattle gig culture,” Sango says about the track.

Listen to “Quanto Tempo”:

The fourth and latest entry in Sango’s acclaimed Da Rocinha series pays homage to Funk Carioca and is his biggest release yet. Its first single, “Kalimba Funk,” is a mellow gem that blossoms from Sango’s love of backstage jam sessions, afrobeat, and Baile funk.

De Rocinha 4 also is a modern reboot of the classic Rio de Janeiro sound that’s heard in everything from Miami bass to gangsta rap. To create this album, Sango pulled inspiration once again from the Rocinha community while adding his own spin on North American Hip-Hop, R&B, House, and Techno, as well as Funk Ostentação, Brega Funk, and even Samba. The album features an all-star cast of collaborators, including Jé Santiago (watch "Flack Jack" w/ Recayd Mob) and SD9.

Earlier in August, Sango released his SANGOZINHO EP, highlighted by FADER in its weekly roundup of the 10 songs you need in your life: “Da Rocinha 4 isn't even out yet but Sango is determined to keep us sweating.” Also, earlier this year Sango released the collaborative Fufu & Frits EP with Juls, one of modern Afrobeat’s most prolific creatives:



The Seattle DJ and producer, born Kai Asa Savon Wright, has been featured in Rolling Stone, Billboard, Washington Post, FADER, VICE, Highsnobiety, and more. Producing since he was 12, Sango channels everything from heady jazz to heartfelt gospel, jittery club to combustible baile funk, uncanny future-bass to mellow trap-soul. He’s produced songs for Tinashe, Bryson Tiller, DRAM, Smino, Dave B, and more.
