It's an electronic music cliché that DJs can bring the world together with their globally conscious mixes. And while this grand notion might be dubious, it's still dope to hear a Colombian cumbia percussion mixed with Jamaican dub bass, Nigerian Afrobeat horns, and other international flavors grounded by dance music's universal thump. Few are better at global fusions than New York's DJ Sabo, the production alias of Will Sabatini, whose singles have kept crowds sated at spots like NYC's Bembe and at gigs in Mexico and Austria. Sabo's tracks evoke African, Brazilian, and Latin music traditions with staccato thunk-a-thunk drum patterns, swishing shakers, rattling percussion, and rubbery bass licks that connect the dancefloor idioms of London, Lagos, and Lisbon. Sabatini brings his global spin to monthly Brazilian party Braza, where DJs Elan, Vanka, and Kento play samba, batucada, baile funk, and other regional club flavors.
