Going by Sango, the music producer’s stage name is almost as good as his actual name. Born Kai Asa Savon Wright in Washington state, the 26-year-old beat-maker and graphic designer is definitely making a name for himself in the hip-hop music world. He’s one of those producers who, despite releasing mixtapes and EPs, lives and thrives behind the scenes—you’ve probably heard production from him, but didn’t know it. As Sango, he’s produced for Wale, GoldLink, Tinashe, Bryson Tiller, DRAM, and many others, dabbling in sounds ranging from contemporary R&B to hip-hop to Brazilian baile funk. But if his latest body of work is any indication, he’s coming out of the shadows and into the light of day. This March he released the album In The Comfort Of, a lush, boundary-pushing album with layered beats that could easily soundtrack your life. It’s about time you got to know him.
