Sabo’s record label, Sol Selectas is celebrating its 100th release with an Afro house track by Sabo alongside a remix from Hyenah.
Sol Selectas launched in 2006 and is one of the record labels that helped pioneer the downtempo/organic house sound that has become a global phenomenon in recent years with the help of events such as Burning Man.
Alongside Sabo’s own music, the label’s star-studded roster includes influential artists such as Satori, Be Svendsen, Armen Miran, Goldcap, Unders and Namito.
Based in Los Angeles, America, Sabo is a globe-trotting headline DJ who has played everywhere from Coachella to Hï Ibiza to ADE in Amsterdam. His music takes influence from the different cultures he has experienced and this gives Sabo an exotic sound that radiates warmth like the hot desert sun.
Hyenah is part of the RISE CREW, which is also running the highly acclaimed RISE MUSIC label, and the imprints accosted party series at Watergate in Berlin. Well known within the Afro house community for his percussive flair and enchanting melodies, Hyenah’s tracks have been released by record labels ranging from John Digweed’s Bedrock to Jimpster’s Freerange Records.
The original mix of “Bomeno” opens the release with a shuffling groove and vibrant Afro percussion that fills the track with upbeat energy. Dramatic synth stabs stride forth to create tension while the vocals add trippy vibes with their muffled tones
Second on the release is Hyenah’s remix of Bomeno, which is a stripped-back version that focuses on the percussion sounds. Spiralling rhythms and a new bassline give the track a jackin’ flow that expands the original’s tribal influence.
The artwork by Helia Jamali shows the vast land of Bomé, with its divine mother Bomeno, meditating peacefully on the horizon.
