Sports is a band of wizards from Oklahoma, conjuring pop music spells for ears just like yours.
People Can’t Stop Chillin, Sports follow-up to their debut release Naked All The Time, is a collection of pure magic that insists you take a cruise in your uncle’s convertible at dusk with nothing more than enchanting melodies and crisp wind within your hair to keep you company.
Born Joao Gonzalez, Soft Glas' productions reflect a lifetime of musical influence. The son of Grammy Award-winning jazz pianist and composer Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Joao grew up exposed to a rich selection of sounds throughout his childhood. As he developed his own interests in music, he explored various styles before finding his niche in electronic productions.
Here, he says, he can create an amalgamation of all his musical and visual inspirations.
"It is a genre where I can explore sounds in more ways than the norm. I can take a water drop sample and make a drum out of it. That's the appeal."
Always dynamic and unpredictable, Joao has lent his talent to projects with the likes of Jesse Boykins III, After The Smoke, Oska Faro, Chargaux, Tiffany Gia, Luke Pickett and more.
