OBAS NENOR – AIN’T GOT TILL IT’S DONE
Sometimes, it’s fun to return to the edits, and this for us, IS the edit of the week – Obas Nenor slices up the elements of the classic Janet Jackson track ‘Got ’til It’s Gone’ feat. Q-Tip and Joni Mitchell, and flips it into a groovy 105 BPM burner.
Hailing from Tel-Aviv, Israel, Obas who is a long time producer and DJ has produced many local acts and even won the local “Grammy” for his productions. He wears a few hats simultaneously, working under the name “SaBBo” for his bass-influenced, footwork styles, while his ‘Obas Nenor’ moniker is the vehicle for his deeper soulful vibes. To take it further, he is also currently collaborating with his friend as Rabo&Snob, where they unearth and re-construct old and forgotten gems. We heard one of their joints on their soundcloud, and that whole middle-eastern psych disco vibe got us bumping in the HQ.
He definitely has caught our attention, and we have a feeling this versatile artist is going to stick around for a while.
