Otra Vez is the second of Michigan based producer Sango’s explorations into the Latin American soundscape. With his previous tape Da Rocinha having a focus on the Brazilian sound and the musical genre Baile Funk that has taken up residence there, Otra Vez proves to be a much broader exploration of sounds from a multiplicity of latin cultures. Sonically the tape is a solid representation of artistry and creativity; where one breaks down an already functioning medium only to reconstruct it from their perspective. This artistry is bolstered by the distinct mixture of snappy Trap and House stylistics with the sonic influence of vibrant genres like Bachata, Reggaeton, Salsa, Cumbia, Samba, and Tribal-Guarachero (some of which we haven’t even heard) and the result is a tape who’s architecture functions both at a musical and cultural level. It’s not just a superb listen, it’s an embodiment of a diverse human experience that is vital to art as a functioning social mechanism.
