By: Nadia Sobehart
South Florida-based hip-hip artist and producer, S.A. Vents, recently dropped his latest single, a hip hop and R&B fusion dubbed “Streets.” Smooth and straightforward, the single features a melodic hook and thoughtful verses that showcase the artist’s fresh sound.
Versatility is key to S.A. Vents’ success. The artist has a background in music ranging from lyrical composition to sound engineering. When it comes to creating his own music, S.A. Vents relies on his natural ability to improvise. “Most of my music I don’t write—I just freestyle. I go into the booth and punch in. I don’t really write my music anymore like I used to.”
“Streets” began as a beat from a pack of beats given to S.A. Vents. This one in particular spoke to the artist, who went “off the feel and vibe of the song more than the technical aspect of it.”
“I got that feeling from the bass line of the song. In the studio, when I heard it, I just went in there and punched in and came up with the hook,” shares the artist. “From there, verses just flowed into it. “I was thinking about a relationship and it just flowed. There wasn’t too much thought, more a feeling and vibe.”
“Be faithful to your partner” is the main message of his single, which reflects on being in a committed relationship. “Don’t worry about the streets.”
Born and raised in Broward County, Florida, S.A. Vents grew up on wide variety of sound across many genres. At age eight, S.A. Vents experimented with writing poetry and rhymes alongside his cousin. By age 18, S.A. Vents began producing. Years later, after moving to Atlanta, he transitioned to writing and recording his own music.
The next five years of his life involved moving back to Florida and working across various studios as an engineer; this experience helped solidify S.A. Vents’ unique sound, a mix of old school and new school hip hop. He started performing in his early 20s and continued releasing music. These days, S.A. Vents is focused on experimenting with different sounds to find something that resonates with people.
A major shift in his sound occurred after early 2022, when an engineer and mentor he worked with closely was murdered. “It motivated and pushed me in a different way,” shares S.A. Vents. “He was the one who pushed me to be a better artist and not glaze over things. It was a monumental moment for me.” One of the projects he collaborated on with his late mentor will be released soon.
