Moombahton Massive XXX - 3 Year Anniversary + Sabo's Birthday!

Nadastrom

Nadastrom is the DC-born, LA-based duo of Dave Nada and Matt Nordstrom, two producers who met and began making music together in 2007. Nada grew up playing in hardcore punk bands before learning to DJ on his college radio station and soon fell in love with dance music, particularly the sounds of Baltimore Club. Nordstrom began playing drum n bass in late 90’s before landing a job engineering for house duo Deep Dish and their solo endeavor’s Dubfire and Sharam, picking up a Grammy nomination along the way. Their early releases were picked up by Switch and released on his Dubsided imprint. In 2009 Nada created the genre Moombahton, a hybrid of slowed down house music fused with tropical elements and arrangements geared towards a Latin audience. This spawned the pair's club night Moombahton Massive held monthly at DC’s U Street Music Hall and quarterly at Miami’s Grand Central and Output in Brooklyn which they throw with DJ Sabo. In 2014, they are gearing up to release their debut artist album via Dubsided and Friends of Friends.

Sabo

"Nobody has that groove like Sabo does – he’s the funkiest dude on the planet. He just has a natural
funk that DJs and producers strive for their entire careers," Dave Nada, moombahton originator

Mention the name Sabo to anyone familiar with the tropical end of EDM and the response will be
unanimous: deep, unquestioning respect, tinged with a healthy measure of awe. For the past 15 years, the
globetrotting DJ and producer, now based in Los Angeles after moving from his native New York, has set
the benchmark for his peers, thanks to his unmistakable signature style: ‘Funky music to make you feel
good’, as he describes it - an irresistible, resonant, Balearic fusion that draws upon house, tropical bass,
latin, Brazilian, afrobeat, disco, reggae, cumbia, dub, Miami bass, hip hop, funk and soul. In a glowsticks
era when the word ‘uplifting’ has lost much of its meaning, Sabo’s productions, many released via his own
Sol*Selectas label, are every bit uplifting as they are finely crafted and timeless. It’s led him to performing
alongside the likes of Sting, Erykah Badu, Chromeo, Brazilian Girls, and Aloe Blacc, while publications such
as Rolling Stone, Spin, Mixmag and The Fader, through to tastemaker sites like XLR8R, Generation Bass
and Highsnobiety have all queued up to acknowledge his talents.

It has also led him to become a pivotal part of the fast-growing moombahton scene, with the sound’s
creator, Dave Nada, openly crediting Sabo’s experiments with traditional latin cumbia and modern beats
for Bersa Discos as a key influence on his Dutch house-reggaeton derived sound. Not only was he a major
factor in its inception, Sabo remains one of the biggest influences on its ascent. He’s responsible behind
many of the genre’s key tracks, he’s a driving force behind the already legendary Moombahton Massive
parties at Washington DC’s U Street Music Hall and LA’s Vibrate monthly, and as the compiler of the
seminal Moombahton Massive EPs, has set the tone for a legion of producers.

Sabo’s achievements don’t even stop there: in 2006 he was named in URB’s Next 100, while he has since
become a staple on the New York gallery circuit, performing at the Museum of Modern Art, the Guggenheim
and the Natural History Museum. High-profile clients such as Puma, Gucci, The Huffington Post and
Bloomingdales have also sought Sabo’s brand of high-end beats, while influential record labels such as
Diplo’s Mad Decent and MAN Recordings out of Berlin have commissioned him to remix their artists. He’s
also had great success as a recording artist for a number of other respected labels, including his own,
Sol*Selectas, Nickodemus’ Wonderwheel Recordings, nu-cumbia label Bersa Discos and on Irma Records
with partner Zeb. In that time he’s remixed and collaborated with such artists as Dennis Ferrer, Gregor
Salto, Nadastrom, Amadou & Miriam, Balkan Beat Box and Nickodemus.

As a DJ his career has included residencies at Turntables on the Hudson, Cielo, Submercer, and Bembe,
a two-year stint hosting a monthly Global Beats radio show on New York’s 91.5 FM, and a long-term spell
managing NYC’s legendary record store, Turntable Lab. Add all this up and you begin to see why Sabo is
held in awe by everyone who’s heard him in action.
