[ARTWORK - Aurora Crowley]
This brilliant EP is out now and here’s a free Sabbo remix for you to listen to whilst you put your pennies together to go and buy the EP [see links below for download stores worldwide]:-)
Middle Eastern born, producer of many trades – SABBO – is responsible for the next release from the award winning Generation Bass camp. He has worked with Mad Decent, Soulico, dancehall stars like Turbulence and Lisa Dainjah and has also been producing many charted productions in various genres in his own country.
This EP draws heavily on the Chicago Foot Work sound, giving it an extra boost in top notch production and bass but also sees Sabbo leaning more towards a UK angle in the Juke/FootWork history. He blends the genre into a mix of hyperactive dancefloor filler and bass heavy globalism. From Chi town via the unlikely detour of Tel Aviv, Israel and relying on classic sampling techniques and the trusted 808 boom, this EP is a Foot Work classic in the making.
Once again Generation Bass holds true to its slogan, “cool music from wherever”…
