Seba delivers his signature, deep take on drum & bass on our latest DJ Mag Weekly Podcast.
Talk about Sweden and d&b and one name comes to mind ahead of all others — Seba. Having opened his career on Good Looking Records back in the late '90s, Sebastian Ahrenberg, has been one of the scene's most consistent and well-respected producers ever since.
Although primarily an outlet for his own productions, Seba's Secret Operations label has seen releases from the likes of Resound and Robert Manos, along with a number of releases with regular collaborator, Paradox. 2017 marks the imprint's 15th anniversary, with Seba dropping a 15-track, retrospective compilation on 27th July to celebrate. (Head here to pick up a copy then.)
Over the years, Seba has honed a versatile sound that covers everything from jungle to liquid, with a tell-tale depth and darkness rolling throughout his work — a theme placed front and centre on his DJ Mag Weekly Podcast.
