Tennerz: Nathan Adams & Sabrina Joy – Love Yourself (Sean McCabe Main Vocal Mix) (Tribe Records)
No matter what, our aim here on IDMW is to (hopefully) feed your appetite with the best vibes we may think of. And ‘Love Yourself’ unsuprisingly makes no exception. From the frist notes of this bumpin’ rhythm driven gem, you can tell. With producer Sean McCabe takin’ the greatest care to get it to the next level. Meanwhile givin’ it a soothing atmosphere. Therefore perfectly fitting with the theme of this self-encouraging song. But also its heartfelt interpretation courtesy of Sabrina Joy.
How could you properly pretend lovin’ anybody if you don’t first love yourself? In other words, if you don’t have respect for yourself… A theme that brings us back to the souvenir of Kim English‘s ‘Learn 2 Luv’. If not Soul:ID‘s ‘Believe’ as a matter of fact. Meanwhile putting once more London multi-tasking Nathan Adams among the driving forces to count with…

– Hailing from London, Nathan Adams has established himself as a multi-tasking man. From singing to playing instruments. Not to mention writing and eventually producing. The first traces ohf him bring us back to 2008. Back then, he shared the duties with Zepherin Saint on ‘Circles’. The two men setting up what would become a strong relationship. Meanwhile delivering extra gems such as ‘Holding On’ in 2009. But also the unmissable ‘Love Of My Life’ standing as a definitive 2011 blast.
Adams went to drop his debut-album – ‘Audio Therapy’ – 2 years after. Teamin’ up with producers such as Louie Vega, DJ Spinna and Black Coffee‘ among others. With this resulting in extra goddies such as ‘Falling’, ‘Just Another Love Song’ and ‘I Wonder’. The latter produced by Sean McCabe with whom he also released ‘ Someday We’ll All Be Free’ and, more recently ‘Love Yourself’ featuring Sabrina Joy.
– Bristol-based producer Sean McCabe has had plenty of time to develop his own sound. He released his first tracks in 2003 at the early age of 17. From then, he spent the last decade fine-tuning a trademark sound that is effortlessly soulful.
McCabe made his name in House Music. He developped a long-running relationship with seminal US garage label King Street Sounds. Eventually remixing the likes of Dennis Ferrer, Roy Ayers, Blaze and Todd Terry.
Since then, he’s amassed an impressive discography, delivering reworks for labels like Z Records, Vega Records, Tribe and Quantize.
A quick listen to any of his productions or one of his DJ sets will confirm this attractive, emotion-rich aesthetic. While rooted in House, his sound regularly takes on flavours of Disco, Boogie, Afro and much more besides.
As a DJ, he has forged a reputation at the legendary Southport Weekender, where he has performed regularly. Anyone who can impress the notoriously knowledgeable SW crowd must be doing something right.
Refreshingly, he seems to have no particular aspirations to play in gargantuan clubs though. And he admits to preferring gigs in small, intimate venues, where he can make a connection with the crowd.
As a producer, McCabe is constantly learning and evolving, taking his sound in different directions. He admits to a love of vintage synthesizers. Meaning these vibes one can get from listening to classic New York Boogie and 80’s Soul.
