Sabb – One Of Us feat. Forrest incl. Dennis Ferrer and Detlef remixes
After welcoming a brand new name to the label with the last EP, Moon Harbour now invites back someone who debuted on it in 2013. That man is Sabb, a tech house producer from Kosovo who has eight plus years of experience of turning out infectious club tracks. He has done so on labels like Noir and Saved, and here serves up a great single that comes with remixes by Dennis Ferrer and Detlef.
His excellent original, ‘One of Us’ features Forrest and is a jostling, full blooded track with shimmering drums and percussive patterns unravelling over driving kicks. Smeared synths and subtle little drum fills flesh-out the rooted groove as soulful, whispered vocals add an intimate and organic edge. It’s sure to be a winner this summer and comes with two equally refreshing remixes.
The first is from Objektivity label boss Dennis Ferrer, who is a pioneering US house producer and DJ with an enviable and storied history with house music. His version is more stripped back, deeper and more patient. The vocals take on a ghostly and pop-leaning feel, melodies are all trippy and spaced out. The track oozes emotive vibes as it flows on and will surely have you singing along in no time. This one could well be one of the anthems of the summer.
Finally, Detlef, a Viva Music mainstay, keeps things raw, old school and house with his chunky remix. All based around fat drums and dry, cutting hi hats, it is a sweaty way to round out a hugely varied EP that really offers something for everyone.
