Sabo’s extended deep tech sets have been praised at festivals like Lightening in a Bottle, Shambhala, Fusion, Northern Nights, and most recently, the Robot Heart bus at Burning Man.

In addition Sabo has remixed for labels like Mad Decent and MAN Recordings, and has original releases on his own label Sol*Selectas, and T & A Records. He’s remixed artists like Dennis Ferrer, Gregor Salto, Pitbull, Jennifer Lopez, Michael Jackson, Nadastrom, and Amadou & Miriam to name just a few. He has performed with Sting, Erykah Badu, Jamie XX, DJ Tennis, Felix Da HouseCat, Dj Craze, Osunlade, and Aloe Blac.
