Sabb is an artist whose presence and maturity in the studio seems to develop with every release to which he puts his name. His production pedigree was quickly identified by some of the scene’s most respected tastemakers.
After releases on Moon Harbour, Saved Records and remixing the likes of John Digweed, Sasha, Hot Since 82 and Hector Couto, Sabb (this time) with Serge Devant make their debut on Circus Recordings with the “Waiting” EP. Below you can find Sabb’s top selection of tracks that he likes to play at Hive Club in Zürich.
1. Redshape – Tel Aviv (Running Back)
“I just absolutely love the vibe on this. It just straddles so many different vibes: deep yet techno-ish with a bit of funk too. The deep, repetitive synth line section is just,so addictive!”
2. Animal Trainer – Yumala (Mobilee)
“Ultimate gem, and huge with the Hive crowd. The track just constantly evolves: there are so many changes, but it all hangs together really well. An absolute banger.”
3. Dario D’attis – My Tip (Strictly Rhythm Recs)
“Dario has been responsible for many great grooves but this one is one of my favourite from him. This smashes it every time I play it, so I end up playing it a lot!”
4. Sabb – One Of Us (Dennis Ferrer Remix)(Toolroom)
“I love Dennis’S version of One Of Us. It’s Ggroovy, deep, sexy, hypnotic: the perfect club track. He nailed it. You can bring this any moment at Hive and people will loose their minds.”
5. Mulla – I Dont Care (Cahoots Records)
“This is my secret weapon, although maybe not anymore! The moody, chunky bass and the groove can have you lost dancing for hours.”
6. Blaze – Lovelee Dae (Bicep Remix)(Feel My Bicep)
“Hive comes to a complete meltdown with this. It’s my favourite Bicep track/remix to date. The vocal just works so well with that bassline, and the deep chords and pads take you to another planet. Just incredible.”
7. Dennis Cruz – El Agua (Snatch! Records)
“Not only Hive gets torn apart, every club I play this at just falls to pieces. Deceptively simple but that break… just wow. A massive tune by Dennis.”
8. eNAHS – Claude (Konflicted Soul Remix)(Pura Music)
“I love the atmosphere of this one here, which is mostly down to that moody, rolling bassline. I could dance to this for weeks, and at Hive people make a good effort to do too! One of my favourite tracks to play out.”
9. Jonas Rathsman – Complex (Serge Devant Remix)(Crosstown Rebels)
“An amazing remix, I just love the vocal and the deep melodies. I play this at all my gigs and its amazingly beautiful.”
10. Hyenah – The Idea (Frankey & Sandrino Remix)(Freerange Records)
“Last but definitely not least: the percussive minimal and yet very simple groove is so good! It has the ‘smile from ear to ear” and you can just see the positive energy spreading over the dancefloor when you drop this one.”
“Waiting” EP is already available on Circus Recordings.
