Sabo’s record label, Sol Selectas welcomes a new organic house EP from imprint favourite Namito, which also includes a collaborative remix by Shan Nash and Rebeat.
Namito is an Iranian artist currently living in Berlin and he is internationally respected for his uplifting style that blends enchanting melodies and deep atmospherics with flowing percussion. Along with numerous releases on Sol Selectas he has also featured tracks and remixes on other scene-leading record labels such as Bedrock, Bar 25, Katermukke, Global Underground and Embassy One.
Sol Selectas fans need little introduction to Namito’s iconic 2019 track “Stone Flower” as it was a chart-topping success that remains one of the record label’s most popular tracks to date.
Shan Nash and Rebeat are Iranian artists collaborating together for the first time, and both are respected solo artists that have been making waves as talented producers. Shan Nash is known for dropping organic house tracks via Cafe De Anatolia, Lump Records, Pipe & Pochet as well as Shango Records. Rebeat produces in styles ranging from deep house to melodic techno, featuring on labels ranging from Kosa to Dubfire’s SCI+TEC.
“Legend” opens the release with an earthy conga loop, shuffling high-end percussion and a deep bassline that’s rich in sub-bass. The shimmering pads and haunting vocals build towards an epic breakdown with spellbinding Iranian lyrics, then there is a lift in energy when the percussion hits back in.
Shan Nash and Rebeat’s remix of “Legend” adds a new pulsating bassline and a techy percussion loop that gives their version a hypnotic groove. Stripping back the synths so the drums and vocals become the main focus, it’s an up-tempo rework that is tailored to the dance floor.
The cover by Helia Jamali portrays an old legend carrying blossoming branches, traversing across the mountains of destiny, into the unknown.
