Several years after the commercial dance music explosion in the states, it seems as though the masses are slowly but surely continuing on their aural explorations to find new sounds and vibes to match their evolving tastes. The West coast festival culture that has spawned from Burning Man has been a catalyst for a range of dance music sub-genres, but it has been particularly crucial for Sabo‘s slower, moombahton-influenced style. “My deep, slow tribal sound was finally understood by a whole community of open minded people,” the Sol Selectas label head says about his experience playing the Robot Heart bus at that thing in the desert in 2013. It was at that moment when he knew he wanted to create what we now know as Vibe Quest, his debut album.
As a whole, Sabo’s Vibe Quest stays true to its name as it features an array of different sounds and styles, like world music, deep house, and tech-house, cohesively woven together with a common thread of tribalistic electronic music fused with an organic and spiritual touch. The most powerful music is able to transport the listener into different realms, and this album does just that. Sabo says, “My intention with this record is to manifest moments of positive feelings on the dance floor,” and he is surely well on his way to success. Enjoy the album above and be sure to pick it up on Beatport.
