Feature Artist: Sabota
The name “Sabota” comes from the infamous area in Nelson BC, where kids congregate late at night to smoke weed, hook up and watch the sun come up. Both Max Ulis and Robbie Slade (of Humans) both have (if somewhat indirect) roots in the area, making it a fitting concept for their collaboration. Their sound is inspired by what happened on Sabota Road, and on similar streets in similar places, in the hour just before sunrise.
Sabota have already an impressive list of shows, at SXSW, Sled Island in Calgary, Vancouver International Jazz Festival with Nosaj Thing, and Symbiosis Gathering. They have also been featured on Discobelle.
