The second release on Obas Nenor’s label Nenorion is a gathering of friends and like minded musical misfits from the brooding Tel Aviv underground.
The 4 track EP kicks off with Emotions, a collaboration between Nenor and Omri Smadar, a classically trained jazz pianist with a diverse musical background. The track has a driving sharp rhythm with a repetitive vocal mantra sure to steer and shuffle emotions on the dancefloor. Diminished State is a dark, eerie and atmospheric affair from Kali Boog, aka Kalimist.
The vivid kaleidoscope of colossal analog techno grooves has a funky, gritty vibe with pads hinting that there might be something sinister lurking behind the speakers. On You’ll Never Find Love, we find veteran producer and ‘Fortuna Records’ co-founder Kalbata in top form. His razor sharp, warm analog rhythms provide the perfect backdrop to the moody, soulful vocal samples floating in a pool of endless ripples and echoes. Closing off the EP is Afternoon Walk , an unexpected piece that came into existence when Obas Nenor casually experimented with the rewiring and routing of analog gear and effects at his new studio. This hypnotic jam session-like result was recorded directly from the mixer to a 2 track capturing a moment of trial and wonder.
Obas Nenor is the alias of the Tel-Aviv producer and DJ Ronen Sabo (also known as SaBBo).

The same qualities come forth in Kalbata’s precise and intense DJ sets, which cover everything from techno, African tribal music & dub
