"Bago - I Forget You & Born Bad"

"For dark and throbbing electronica-infused R&B, look no further than rising Los Angeles artist Bago. Aptly described as a cross between Amy Winehouse and The Weeknd, her music has fearless attitude, sexual appeal, and gives off that distinct feeling that she’s always plotting something mischievous — like a slithering, stealthy snake that’s dangerous, but always studied, marveled and stared at. Whether it’s the doom-like atmospherics in her songs, or that sassy & soulful gravelly voice, Bago is definitely one to watch in 2013." - The Music Ninja

"Who is Bago?"

"The results were something like Amy Winehouse meets Poliça, with dashes of Little Dragon and Charli XCX. Androids on auto-tune. If [producer] Spit’s music was meant to be breathtaking, then Bago’s vocals are heart-stopping. Together, their music is haunting and beautiful." - Complex Magazine

"Band of the Day #382"

"Every now and then a tune comes along that mercilessly shuns everything else aside and demands full attention. Bago’s ‘I Forget You’ has just gone and done exactly that.

The track is taken from the album ‘Sunday’s Best’ which is available to stream in its entirety here. Californian Bago boasts an enviously soulful voice which she drapes over heavy beats and mesmerizing electronic soundscapes. Bago teamed up with Californian rapper Alexander Spit to produce the album and the results are astounding. Check out last summer’s single ‘Remember’ here.

Bago’s sound is more than a bit Little Dragon with a real Amy Winehouse tone in her rich, sassy vocals. This girl is certainly going to be one to watch for this year." - The Great Escape Festival

"Album of the Week"

"Somewhere between Amy Winehouse and Charli XCX falls L.A. neo-soul goddess Bago. The contrast between Alexander Spits’ wildly innovative production and Bago’s soulful, rasp-ridden vocals is nothing short of disarming." - exfm

"Record of the Day"

"The fantastic lo-fi R&B debut from Bago has set the online world on fire, causing some international music industry heat and attracting high profile fans such as A$AP Rocky. Released as part of her Sunday's Best album, I Forget You peaked at No.1 on HypeM, as it was added to college radio playlists around the US. Produced in its entirety by California rapper Alexander Spit, Bago has been described as a mixture of Lana Del Rey over beats by Flying Lotus or The Weeknd, which seems a pretty good fit to us. The buzz has been followed by a queue of international labels and publishers keen to meet new found talent." - Record of the Day


"Bago [is] a Californian offering a twist on R&B hailed as sounding like Lana Del Rey if she teamed up with Flying Lotus." - The Guardian: Band of the Day

"Top 10 Mixtapes Of The Year"

6. Bago ‘Sunday’s Best’

Add a touch of Erykah Badu and Amy Winehouse’s soul and sprinkle it with an essence of Yukimi Nagano from Little Dragon and you get the fantastic Bago wearing her ‘Sunday’s Best’. The beautiful songbird from LA dropped one hell of a smooth mixtape in August and her sultry vocals were the perfect way to close out the summer. The overall theme of this ten-track mixtape divulges into poisonous love relationships and the betrayal that comes with it, or as Bago herself likes to describe it: “music for the screwed, blued and tattooed”.... Where Bago’s career goes in 2013 is a mystery, but if she continues dropping projects like this with bangers like ‘Dr. Lock’, ‘Devil Inside’ and ‘Bad On The Bottle’ then she’s going to go far." - CLASH Magazine

"Youngblood: Sound of 2013"

"It’s that time of the year again where we take a look at the past, to take a look at the future. It’s that time of the year where we analyze up-and-coming artists, to see which one of them is going to become successful in the next year.

In this installment of Young Blood, MTHRFNKR jumps once again in the blogosphere’s time-machine to summarize the year and bring you the Sound of 2013 aka The Next Big Things:.... Bago Similar to: Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse" - MTHRFNKR

"A voice that will make hearts melt while the ground shakes." - Vibe Magazine. Rising female R&B artist Bago is creating her own lane by blending tender and ethereal R&B over industrial, airy beats. Drawing on inspirations like Etta James, Johnny Cash, and Amy Winehouse, Bago achieves a nice balance between lyrical strength and cutting edge beats.
