Sabo’s record label, Sol Selectas welcomes a dynamic release from Memo Rex which ranges from dramatic Afro house to sensual organic house.

Memo Rex is an American artist from San Diego in California, and he is a Sol Selectas regular who has featured on four of the record label’s compilation releases. This is his first solo Sol Selectas EP, and it features four original tracks, one of which is a collaboration with PALOMA. who’s known for her music on Lee Burridge’s TRYBESof.

Alongside his music on Sol Selectas, Memo Rex has featured on other imprints such as Music Is 4 Lovers, Desert Hearts, Superfreq and SNOE. This release combines powerful drum rhythms with organic atmospherics and enchanting melodies, to create tracks that transport the listener to exotic locations.

“Vulcan” has tense atmospherics layered over jackin’ drum rhythms that give the track a stomping groove with tribal influences. Latin vocals and trippy melodies create a hallucinatory vibe underpinned by a swelling bass synth.

“Muladhara” is a track made in collaboration with PALOMA. and it combines jungle sounds with heavy percussion. The chirping birds combine with vocal chants to give this track the feeling of a joyous aboriginal ceremony.

“Vesta” is the third track on this release, and it moves away from the upbeat Afro house energy of its predecessors, to instead present a light and breezy organic house sound. Its soothing piano melodies, uplifting pads and inspirational vocals are layered over invigorating drum patterns.

“Resonance” is a majestic track which closes out the release with its floating melodies and soaring pads. It’s a light and breezy track with an angelic vibe that is truly spine-tingling, and the flamenco guitar strum that reintroduces the percussion is a magical moment.

The artwork by Helia Jamali takes us to the deepest transcendental volcanic landscape upon which the mind travels.
