BIOSPHERE - SABB
Few DJs or Producers inspire an entire genre with their style alone. Sabb (Sabri Kastrati), has single handedly done such that. Hailing from the capitol of Kosovo, Prishtina, his Deep-Techy-Tribal-Hypnotic grooves have made him an important player in the electronic music scene over the last two years. You can find many of Sabb's releases on some of the most respected and major underground electronic labels such as Audiomatique Recordings, Defected, Toolroom Records, Cr2, Noir Music, BluFin, MBF, Connaisseur, Stealth Records, Monique Musique, Nervous Records, just to name a few.
Just within the last few months Sabb has been very busy remixing artists like Chris Lake, Carlo Lio, Wehbba, Gary Beck, Supernova and Hector Couto among others. Only a year after beginning his production carreer, Sabb's first record release, "Dead Corps", landed immediately on Top 100 beatport charts and was released on his own label, SK Supreme Records. He's also peaked twice at #2 on the beatport Deep House Charts with "Sax On Wax" and his Summer of 2010 hit, "Ballkanika". The "Ballkanika" release also featured a remix by Mendo (which peaked at #3 on Beatport Tech House Charts) and has been licensed for Toolroom Knights mixed by Mark Knight.
Whether in a beach party in Miami or in a nightclub in Brussels, Sabb's versatile DJ sets are fueled by the spontaneous and subtle nuances of the venue and crowd.
BIOSPHERE - ZENBI
Raised in Philadelphia and based in Washington DC, ZENBI is quickly becoming one of the hottest names in America’s burgeoning house music scene. With newly minted residencies at two of the hottest dance clubs in the US, and a handful of recent top ten tracks to back it up, ZENBI is establishing himself as one of the most in-demand DJ/Producers in the industry.
ZENBI started spinning vinyl in the mid 90’s in Philadelphia – being heavily influenced by the music culture pioneered by local legends Josh Wink and King Britt. ZENBI’s signature ‘Good & Beautiful’ sound [Zenbi translates as Good and Beautiful in Japanese] has evolved into an infectious blend of sexy house, tech house, latin, and tribal grooves.
On the road, ZENBI has packed crowds from Boston to Budapest, Milan to Miami, and performed at major dance music festivals including BPM, Miami Music Week, Winter Music Conference, Groove Cruise, SodaPop Milano, and ADE (Amsterdam Dance Event). At home, Zenbi holds monthly residencies at two of the premier house clubs in the US: Lima in Washington DC and Rumor in Philadelphia – where he shares a rotation with the likes of Chus & Ceballos, Morgan Page, Saeed Younan, and Oscar G. In addition, ZENBI is a resident of electronic music event production company AOE, where he has performed at large scale events with acts including Aviici, Alesso, Bingo Players, etc.
The past year has brought a whirlwind of success for ZENBI’s studio works, which have caught the ears of a Who's Who list of labels including Skint, Hotfingers, Great Stuff, Twisted, Vendetta, Disc Doctor, Low Kik, SK Supreme, among others. A handful of ZENBI releases have graced the Beatport Top Ten – including Stefano Noferini’s remix of Double Trouble, which claimed the number one position on the Tech House charts for over a month.
ZENBI’S releases have received massive support from an ever-increasing list of talented producers including Moby, Mark Knight, Marco Carola, Stefano Noferini, Roger Sanchez, Umek, Danny Tenaglia, Wally Lopez, David Herrero, Erick Morillo, Dubfire, Paco Osuna, David Penn, Satoshi Tomiie, and Uner (to name a few!).
