It’s time to keep a close eye on Seattle-based beatsmith and producer Sango. His quickly growing fan base and worldwide critically acclaimed music are rapidly expanding as he prepares to release his first major commercial record via Wright Music Group.

Infusing Afro-punk, Brazilian baile funk and hip-hop with soulful R&B, Sango produces tracks that combine various elements into his own distinctive sound, as evidenced by his popular remixes of Aaliyah, Drake, Little Dragon, Nas and The Weeknd in addition to his debut album North, and his Baile Funk EP series Da Rocinha. Plus, not only has he been producing his own music since the age of 12, Sango is a talented graphic designer who impressively has designed all of his releases up to date.

In the past four years, Sango has taken his production skills from his college dorm to cities worldwide and now consistently collaborates with some of the best in the business. Along with touring his Da Rocinha projects in more than 50 cities worldwide, he has produced for some of the industry’s hottest acts, such as Tinashe, Bryson Tiller and Mick Jenkins. It’s clear that he is more than just a producer, but an artist in his own right — and his music is just one component of the growing statement he wishes to make.

This Friday, Sango will perform at 1015 Folsom with a slew of support from MIKOS DA GAWD, Antonio Guedes, Matt Haze, Kush Arora, DOUBLE B, Danado, Izzy Wise and more as part of  SF’s Brazilian Party put on by Braza! Tickets are available for $25, or you could win a pair of tickets by submitting your full name and email below.

Genesis P-Orridge leads the ever-experimental Psychic TV back to SF

The Independent – San Francisco
September 19th, 2015 //

Lately I’ve been into the idea of attending shows from bands I know absolutely nothing of because the experience has been, for the most part, very entertaining and just overall cool.

As was the case earlier this month in seeing Psychic TV, a British band formed back in the late 70’s by Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, who might be the most interesting person alive. But before stepping into his persona, let’s briefly talk about the music since that’s what it’s all about.

Psychic TV is mainly an experimental electronic outfit, although after nearly 30 years, they’re still very much accentuated by their taste for rock music and use of analog instrumentation, including guitar, bass and drums. Their recordings are very prolific, mostly due to the fact that in 1986, they released a total of 17 live albums (they are actually in the Guinness book of world records as the band with the most records released in one year). As their name suggests, Psychic TV also integrate visuals and projections for their live shows.

Having been away from SF for a few years, Psychic TV came back with a generous set at The Independent that went as long as two hours with dancing and projections. Their performance drew a huge crowd, with only a few tickets left keeping the show from being sold out. Because the attendance was overwhelming and so was the crowd’s involvement, the dancing as well as the singing were impressive.

More than a band, Psychic TV is also an art project conceived by P-Orridge, the group’s only remaining original member. S/he is also the founder of a unique movement known as “The Pandrogyne Project,” which attempts to alter one’s physical appearance through surgical operations to look like his or her significant other. Ever since 1993, P-Orridge has undergone many plastic modification treatments in order to look like his/her now late wife. P-Orridge’s story is quite impressive, and if you’re into some weird autobiographies, it’s one you should definitely consider.
