The name “Sabota” comes from the infamous area in Nelson BC, where kids congregate late at night to smoke weed, hook up and watch the sun come up. Both Max Ulis and Robbie Slade have (if somewhat indirect) roots in the area, making it a fitting concept for their collaboration. Their sound is inspired by what happened on Sabota Road, and on similar streets in similar places, in the hour just before sunrise.
SABOTA is live deep house. brimming with analogue warmth. Showcasing the difference between an 808 in your headphones and an 808 in the club. We’ve featured SABOTA in a Cocktail Hour once before and I’m happy to introduce this mix that started it all over year ago. It doesn’t feature as many of their originals but they’ve been hard at work this year and I’m gonna embed some bonus tunes for you guys on this one.
