Driven Artist Management Showcase:
(Horizons Music Group | Future Thinkin | Integral)
One duo that is slowly but surely making their mark on the DnB scene worldwide is known as "Saburuko". Representing Brooklyn, NY, by way of the UK, Russell Knight and Edward Parker are currently signed exclusively to the Horizons Music Group. Having spent their formative years back in their respective homes of Scotland and Wales they take over 2 decades of DJ and production experience to critical acclaim the world over. So far support has come from A-Listers such as Fabio & Grooverider, Doc Scott, DJ Lee, Marcus Intalex, LTJ Bukem, Nookie, DJ Flight, Digital, Amit, D- Bridge, Marky, Artificial Intelligence, Influx UK, Bryan Gee, JJ Frost and Outrage so it's no wonder these guys are being tipped for huge things in 2007 and beyond. With a rich and diverse musical background that is clearly evident in their productions it is claimed the ear they have for melody, mood and atmosphere is not seen in one set group. Evidence of this can be heard in their lead off release on Horizons, the Boro Park EP, featuring 4 tracks ranging in styles it is a perfect primer to the sound that is Saburuko: multi-faceted, deep, emotional and real. Saburuko have also been remixing and collaborating with such names as Insight, Bachelors of Science, Sabre, Hobzee, Soulmatic, Stunna and Amaning to name but a few. This will see releases on Horizons, Crisis and Progress Ltd. 2007 will also see the Horizons "Exclusive" artists release tracks on Future Thinkin and Integral.
