You can hear all those years of familial support in Sango’s expansive, freedom-seeking discography. He says his music traces the bloodlines that connect Southern crunk and trap, with detours into Brazilian baile funk and other styles. On his two latest albums — 2018’s “In the Comfort Of” and 2019’s “Moments Spent Loving You,” with vocalist Xavier Omär — his sound pushes from slow-bouncing R&B into full, jubilant gospel.
“Everything I do is for the glory of God,” Sango says of his core creative impulse. It results in an intuitive, genre-melting sound that he calls “spiritual bass music” — a sound that’s “meant to bring you toward something.” Step onto the dance floor and that “something” is for you to decide.
