Sol Selectas label head Sabo presents “Vibe Quest Chapter Two” in the series leading up to his full length debut release LP “Vibe Quest”, slated for early 2016. The two mid-tempo originals have been tried and tested at festivals and clubs for months now, rocking dance floors at Lightening in a Bottle, Shambhala, Desert Hearts, and most recently Burning Man. The track “Afro Fuego” is a percussive work out with African chants, deep bass, and long ethereal pads clocking in at 112bpm, but with an energy to match any main room house tune. “Force 4 Movement” was inspired by the darker tech house sounds that have entered the scene via labels like Life and Death, Keinemusik, and Crosstown Rebels, but with Sabo’s added tribal twist. A pitched down spoken word sample explains the relationship between physical and cosmic energy, and how together they cause an uncontrollable movement in the body. With heavy low end sub frequencies and a hypnotic techno groove, the song builds and builds with it’s steel drum polyrhythms. Miami’s dynamic duo Futro – consisting of legendary Miami house music producer Oscar G, and his youngest protege Lazaro Casanova – takes the tune “Afro Fuego” and transforms it into a tribal house stomper. The remix is layered with tropical rhythms, chopped up vocals, and drum rolls which build the energy. It’s powerful groove has a genuine understanding of today’s modern underground dance floor, with a tasteful nod to the early 90’s when MURK records ruled the Space terrace in both Ibiza and Miami. Alexi Delano, longtime NYC friend of Sabo, transforms “Force 4 Movement” into an even trippier journey than the original with his deep tech house interpretation. Stripping down the original, with a pulsating analog bass line, and adding more percussion, the remix peaks with a gorgeous guitar solo, before launching back into it’s own hypnotizing rhythm.
Dj and Producer William Sabatini aka SABO is a staple in the globe lance music community. Sabo’s productions take you along a journey into mixtures of a meditative desert oasis to Tropical poly-rhythms, featuring lush, tribal vocals and smooth organic textures. Behind the decks, innovative approach to each DJ set makes a consistent stand out at Festivals like Coachella, Lightening in a Bottle, Shambhala, Fusion, Symbiosis, Desert Hearts, Further Future, and Burning Man’s Robot Heart bus. And as a label boss, heading up his imprint Sol*Selectas, he enlists up and coming underground producers from all over the globe, as well as prominent well known producers in the industry.

About Lazaro Casanova:
Lazaro Casanova is a DJ, Producer, and record label owner known for his progressively broadening range and genre defying sound. Born and raised in Miami Florida, Lazaro regularly draws his inspiration from his culturally vibrant hometown. His fusion of unique hooks and drums along with dynamic basslines, has contributed in creating his signature sound with a distinct Miami flair. In 2008, wanting to further his involvement in music, Lazaro created his own record label petFood; where he could promote a variety of his own musical works while simultaneously showcasing his uncanny ability to discover up and coming talent. Artists like Waze & Odyssey, Urulu, No Artificial Colours, and Poupon, are only some of the names the label has since taken on and helped grow on an international level. With a library of work put out over the years, Lazaro has had releases with Murk, Leftroom, Culprit, Get Physical, Nervous as well as their sub-label, Nurvous. Along with his original works, he has also had the pleasure of working with and remixing the likes of Maya Jane Coles, Juan Maclean, Danny Daze, Lee Burridge, Kaskade, Murk and many more. In 2015, Lazaro was given the keys to manage the legendary Miami label Murk Records, originally founded in 1992. After working with Oscar G and Ralph Falcon, the three hit it off instantly and Lazaro was indicted into the Murk family. His extended work with Oscar G led the two to create Futro, a new wave of house music mixed with the old and a hint of a tropical twist. Their collaboration has stemmed from a Monday radio show on Klanbox.fm, to a monthly party at Bardot, and musical collaborations that have received tremendous acclaim from fans and industry heavyweights like David Morales. With the new year upon him, Lazaro has already added more to his already full plate. With upcoming releases on Murk and a Murk weekly in Wynwood, he’s showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Lazaro’s persistence, dedication to his craft, and ongoing creative productions are proof that he is one to watch and one who you’ll continue to hear about for generations to come.
