Los Angeles DJ Sabo is set to ring in the new year at North Shore’s Tahoe Biltmore Tuesday.
“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,” according to the DJ’s press kit. “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.”
Sabo is credited with being an innovator of the moombahton sound that blends reggaeton with electronic dance music.
“Not only was he a major factor in its inception, Sabo remains one of the biggest influences on its ascent,” according to the press materials. “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.”
Subtropixx, Micah J, Zebuel, Coop Da Loop, Flook, IJV and Aux open Tuesday’s show.
