Agung Mango and producer Nikodimos have teamed up on new single ‘YO EL REY’, the first taste of a forthcoming collaborative EP from the duo.
The track sees Gung swerve between ferocious bars and smooth, crooned refrains above Nikodimos’ blissed-out, flute-heavy beat – with the producer performing all instruments.

“This was the one song on the EP where I felt the most liberated, where I let all my guards down and looked back on some of my early memories of life and internal conflicts I had along the way,” Agung commented in a statement accompanying the track.
“You hear me rage, sing, rap and express my emotions in all the ways I know how. Thanks to Nikodimos for also encapsulating this on the production – that music can embody our frustrations into something beautiful.”
Nikodimos echoed the sentiments, adding, “This track is about growing up in the West and finding liberation through music. Gung and I wanted to channel our frustrations into beauty, and this track, much like the rest of our project, focuses on using our internal conflicts as a vehicle to create some timeless hits.”
