Sabo’s record label Sol Selectas welcomes a dramatic Afro house EP from Safar (FR).
Safar (FR) is a French artist with African roots and his music blends his multicultural background to create organic tracks with flowing percussion. Blending the electronic sounds of his European upbringing with the tribal rhythms of Africa, Safar (FR)’s music has been featured on influential record labels such as Deep Root Tribe, MoBlack Records and Moon Black Records.
This is Safar (FR)’s third time working with Sol Selectas after he previously featured a track on the label’s Summer Sol VII compilation and also remixed a track by ARKADYAN.
“The Lost Tribe” builds tension with rising pads underpinned by vibrant percussion sequenced into its a stomping groove with free-flowing elements. Tribal chants add to the ceremonial vibe that’s augmented with spiralling synths to create an energetic groove that’s full of tantalising suspense.
“Memelles” powerful vocals and pulsating synths that are cut by heavy percussion to create a jerking groove with Afro flavour. Powerful offbeat rhythms and spine-tingling synths combine with poignant piano melodies on this dance floor focused track that has a cinematic sound with epic atmosphere.
