Abel Kaluba more commonly known by his alias 4bel is an electronic musician and DJ from Berkshire, England. His style features a blend of Deep-House, Techno, and everything in-between. After releasing his first single "Fake Plasters" his tracks have been picked up by the likes of BBC Introducing and he has gone on to support Drumcode regular, Boxia - bringing his unique productions to the live stage.
The Berkshire man has since focused on evolving beyond the dark post-dub sound that characterized his earlier tracks. His most recent offering, "Represent...AKA No Pressure", sees 4bel mining a gritty House sound; channeling Jamie Jones and Todd Terry to create a peak-set gem.
Press & reviews:
BBC Introducing Berkshire: ‘Atmospheric, nocturnal & powerful’, Linda Serck.
Crack Magazine: ‘[4bel’s] live sets display a senses of musicianship rare amongst his peers […] Forthcoming single Fake Plasters is grounded in atmospheric beats and morphed vocal samples which place him somewhere between post-dubstep and future-garage camps, darkly emotive yet with clips, snaps, and impetuous building hi-hats forming an almost sensual groove.'
Dance Vici: '4bel has recently flaunted glimpses of his underground style with ‘Represent…AKA No Pressure‘, the track, out now on Kolt Recordings, demonstrates a gritty house sound and very much echoes resemblance to early Jamie Jones and Todd Terry productions[...]it’s quite simply a peak-time gem for any set!'
The 4O5: ‘Fake Plasters finds 4bel back again mining dubstep territory, blending glitches and distorted vocals into a dark and danceable groove.’
