Los Angeles-based Sabo brings a Sol Selectas late-morning house vibe to his remix.He takes the mission into the desert, pulling the tempo down into a deep, tribal house groove. This remixe has a heavy, hypnotic vibe that incorporates atmospheric Sitars, warped basslines and relentless tablas. Sabo has created an ethereal voyage which is destined to take the listener into orbit and leave them there.
Fort Knox Five's alter ego Thunderball takes Mission To The Sitars and launches it into the far reaches of space with a relentless drum'n'bass remix. Using the full Sitar melody of the original, Thunderball has revved up the pulse and added relentless drums, choppy synths and a rolling bass. Like a lunar rover, this remix drives over the peaks and valleys, all the way to the dark side of the moon and back!
