HDNSM # 169: Salem Jabou


Based in Paris, Salem Jabou delivers a fine tuned style of rolling house which pays ode to his experimental and very open mind. With a belief in all genres of not only music but also art, his appetite for new collaborations and new ideas can be felt throughout his mixes – in parts it feels like a journey, flirting with different cultures through some of the various samples used in the tracks selected but more specifically a poignant variation  in the drum patterns which still seamlessly float into each other throughout. Salem runs the podcast platform Overview with an eclectic catalog of 60 episodes showcasing artists from all over the world. He also managed a  based party series Zukunft with partner in crime Kais Dhifi. Contributing in the community management of Montreal based label DTD Records. Shared stages with artists like Levon Vincent, Lazare Hoche, François X, Boris Werner, Idealist, Analog Africa…Used to live in Switzerland, where he had a residency in a small local club before moving to Paris.
