SOL EP 17 Jump NYC Moombahton
1.) Jump Moombahton
2.) NYC Moombahton
After editing and remixing tons of my favorite producers and songs, I decided it was time to do Moombahton edits of my own work. The original tunes “Jump” and “NYC” were made under the name Sabo & Zeb. This was my first 12″ ever released, on my good friend Nickodemus’ label WonderWheel Recordings 7 years ago. I was actually paying Zeb (who, for those of you that don’t know, is an absolute genius in the studio) to tutor me in Reason. These 2 songs were our first effort collaborating together. I brought the samples, ideas, and vision for the tunes to the table, and Zeb helped me to make them come alive. At the same time taught me how he was doing it, and those initial lessons with Zeb shaped me to become the producer i am today. Even as far back as 2004, I was making tunes with a “dem bow” drum pattern, so these were an obvious choice to remix into Moombahton. I shortened the original arrangements slightly to get quicker to the point, re-worked the drum programming, added some more percussion to each,added more effects on the breaks and builds, and also spent a lot of time re-mixing down the tracks to give them more power. Additional mixing and mastering thanks to Matt Nordsrom and Nick Chacona respectively. Release date Oct 5th, 2011
Release/catalogue number: SOL017
Release date: Oct 5, 2011
Free download: Taken from the recent Moombahton Massive V EP, Sabo and Nadastrom remixing Jamie XX‘s ‘Far Nearer’ which is an absolute gem.
