Sango – Sweet Holy Honey (feat. Xavier Omär)

This new one from Sango and Xavier Omär is absolutely incredible, both aurally and visually. Xavier deserves a TON of credit for his spectacular vocals, but Sango is an undisputed musical genius if you ask us.  Listen to this!

DKVPZ for the Soulection white label series: 'Não olha pro lado'

For the first white label release from Soulection in over a year they've enlisted the Braziliain duo DKVPZ.  These four track are a groove focused exploration of more styles at once than you can count.  The duo met when they were both booked to dj at the same event as solo acts.  It led to a b2b set and the decision to make music as a duo and release it under one name.  At first listen this is a perfect choice for the return of the Soulection white label series.  Listen below and download 'Não olha pro lado' here.

James Vincent McMorrow: Glacier (Atu remix)

Atu weaves a delicate, beautiful remix of James Vincent McMorrow's track 'Glacier'.  McMorrow's album 'Post Tropical' was released in January, and was an instant favourite to music lovers of all kinds.  This reinvention at the hands of one of Soulection's finest creates a rare and vibrant masterpiece from what was previously a track that seemed impossible to improve upon.  The original album 'Post Tropical' is available here.

TIME Festival: artist spotlight on Sango

 

The TIME festival lineup features one of the most innovative producers in the world.  Sango first made waves with some unexpected and unorthodox remixes of classic tunes.  Before long he released 'North' and Los Angeles label Soulection helped deliver his music to the ever growing masses of fans.  The album was followed by Sango's second 'Da Rocinha' EP, blending the soulful R&B he's known for and the energy of Brazilian baile funk.  There's really no way of predicting what he'll bring to the TIME festival stage, but we're certain it's not a performance to miss...
