Sir Sly has just released a new song, fittingly titled “Expectations”. Last Friday, Sir Sly released a photo revealing that they would be releasing the new song on March 11th, which lead us to believe it would be a single to appear on the new album. In a statement today however, the band has decided to leave the track off the album as it does not fit cohesively with the other tracks and was one of the older songs they had written. Another surprise is that the song is over 7 minutes long.

Sango really started the new year quite well, releasing 3 tracks so far and all of them exactly what we all want from the man. This new track he returns with his Baile Funk flips originally a bonus track from his Otra Ves EP. The first “Da Rocinha” album was a master piece, the depth and use of the tropical countries culture sculpted a beautiful and heavy flip to the countries baile. If you listen to the origins of “Baile Funk” it takes you back to Miami in the mid 1980’s and their “Miami Bass” so for Sango to give a nice refreshing flip and add a bit more bass is truly paying respect to the origins of the music. Stream or download the track below and keep an eye out for Da Rocinha 2 coming out soon!
