Our new premiere comes from none other than DAVI delivering an amazing remix on Monolink’s ‘Burning Sun’
This songs tells the story of himself being reborn, becoming human again while in a lucid dream state. With his roots in the world of acoustic music, Monolink expertly pairs traditional song writing with a pulsating electronic groove, in a narrative that combines his superb vocals, with cosmic guitars, piano, and powerful synths.
DAVI takes the track further into an oasis of desert tech, teasing and dubbing the vocals over a relentless tribal beat.

We’re super excited to welcome Sol Selectas head honcho Sabo for our latest release with his new EP, Earth & Sun. The EP is the 50th release of the label that has grown multifolds since we first collaborated with them! Today Sol Selectas has become one of the most noteworthy labels hosting showcases around the world!
With Young Wisdow, Sabo reflects on his journey, not only as a producer but as a label manager, and shares some of his learnings for more start-ups in the space! The track keeps a groove that has come to define his sound with ethereal chants that screams to ones soul from the playa.
The “Wrong Bottle EP” comes from Essen Germany’s Tim Reichelt aka Timboletti. For his debut on Sol Selectas, he brings us two original tracks inspired by long nights and unforgettable weekends he experienced DJing the European Festival circuit at places like Fusion, 3000 Grad, and Goulash Disko. “Wrong Bottle” is exactly that – an accidental journey into the psyche brought on by a sip from a stranger’s drink. As the percussion builds you close your eyes, and open them to a flock of wind instruments circling around you. The trip gets intense and freaky at times, with acid arpeggios swirling around in your brain, but after a while, you regain control and land back on planet Earth. The next day you wake up with a “Salty Mind”, things are bit foggy inside your head, but you are barefoot walking around and whistling in the sunshine. The beams of light hit your face like a thing of beauty, much like the field recordings of the Ayuahasca ceremony Timboletti had 10 years ago in Ecuador, that come to life in this song.

More than three years in the making, Vibe Quest is the debut solo album from long-time DJ and producer Sabo. The record represents the artist’s own personal journey, navigating the egos and politics of the music business while searching for positive vibes, open-minded audiences, and musical experiences that transcend a typical night out.
Vibe Quest is post-moombahton, a deeper, spiritual version of the genre that first put Sabo on the map as an established producer. A big part of the album’s genesis can be traced back to 2013, when Sabo’s DJ set on the Robot Heart bus at Burning Man introduced his unique vision to a whole new audience.
It is a bouillabaisse of cultures, samples, and sonics simmering together for a 12-course meal of body-moving entrees. “Grey Is the New Sunny” infuse pitched-down tech house rhythms with African chants.
Release Date: May 2nd, 2016
