Man Recordings is very proud to present the “Flex EP” by São Paulo DJ and producer Sants. Along with other names such as NeguimBeats, Psilosamples, Cybass, Tropkillaz, Bad $ista and Omulu, 22 year-old Sants is at the forefront of the new Brazilian beats and bass music scene. In this ambient diverse world of new music and no genre tags, Sants is well known for his distinct ability to digest a wide array of foreign influences and reinterpret them through the harsh lens of the Brazilian scenario, while still entrancing the ever-fickle tastes of the online music community.


“Noite Ilustrada”, his first full length album, was conceived during the 2013 Red Bull Music Academy Bass Camp in São Paulo. After gorging himself on laid-back Los Angeles beats by day and heavy London bass by night, Sants craved his own cocktail of sound, inspired by the constant bustle of a metropolitan night. With assistance from many of his Beatwise colleagues, he helped to illustrate the cityscapes and night scenarios average of the Sao Paulo nightlife. After recently starring on Mixmag’s compilation tape with Trapdoor, and a consistent EP “Chavoso”, Sants is eager to continue his international collaborations with conviction on his “Flex” EP.


“Flex” is a common term in Brazil for cars that run both on alcohol and gasoline and this is how he wants his music to work as. After a long period of listening just to trap beats, Sants decided to pull some effort shaping the middle-term of what it would be the interpretation of the Brazilian sound by a Brazilian who is nurturing on a diet of both UK bass and global music every single day. The result is the “Flex” EP, who finds home at Man Recordings, another influence for him. In the Eps five tracks, Sants draws club scenarios and urban scapisms of the suburbs of São Paulo by a view of a person who lives its night every single weekend.

Early DJ support by Gilles Peterson, Switch, Branko, Feadz, Munchi, DJ Orgasmic (Sound Pellegrino), Viní, So Shifty and many others!
