Saux – Save The World

Saux

Saux

Dutch producer/DJ and 22 Tracks curator, Saux takes inspiration from left-field disco, tropical music and contemporary pop.

His new track, ‘Saves The World’ is as you’d expect. It has a slow but solid disco back-beat with sweet funk guitar riffs, and stripped-back and smoothed-out vocals.

Of the track, Saux says; “Musically it’s a melting pot – it’s my interpretation of many different influences. Sound-wise it’s my way of trying to capture a warm saturated sound with few layers like the old Arthur Russell disco records or South African 70’s pop. The song talks about how relationships can be influenced so much by emotional and physical distance.”

The track is out now, on his own imprint, Cahors Recordings.

Sounds like: Friendly Fires, Metronomy, Ben Khan, Royce Wood Junior, XO
