Sango | Monte Booker

 

Soulection has always been very much welcomed in the Bay Area, and thanks to DJ Dials for booking their crew consistently, their fan base has grown considerably. Last time Sango was in town, he tore apart 1015 Folsom, but over the weekend he upgraded to the beautiful Regency Ballroom for a packed house.

 

Dials notoriously opens his own shows (I would too), and he can set the tone for any booking he sets. Right from the get go, the vibe was right and everyone was ready for the smooth trimmings of Monte Booker. I had seen this guy’s name around, but this was the first time I got to listen to his music. His set was filled with sultry beats and four on the floor tempos that perfectly complemented what was about to come.

 

Sango is a legend. As one of the back bones of the Soulection crew, you can always expect for him to bring the heat and keep it unique. His Brazilian and Latin inspired beats always get me going. Everyone was hype from top to bottom, and the night was capped in a way only one of Soulection’s founding fathers could do.

When they made it into our 2014 Honorable Mention for the rousing Dead, Young Fathers were only getting started. Follow up album White Men are Black Men Too continued to feature their Scot-pop catchiness interlaced among heavy militaristic droning with hopeful background bagpipes staying strong. Interspersed across all of that sonic space are politically charged rap and soulful ballads that highlight a deeply caring and international influence.

 

Catch them Sunday for what’s been touted as a very energetic live show.

Young Fathers – Old Rock n’ Roll

Young Fathers – Shame

Santa Monica based vocalist and producer (and golfer and student) Leven Kali’s recent release, 4102, pulls together all that is right with soul, funk, hip-hop, and R&B. Then it throws in modern styles to send extra sexy chills down the spine for good measure. We’re so down with this free and timely 9-tracker. Suffice it to say, this guy has got a bright future ahead of him.
