Ask any musician, producer or DJ to neatly summarize their sound in a handful of apt adjectives, and many will struggle. Not so Sean McCabe. “Warmth and soul,” he says. “Whatever I do, it has to have elements of warmth, soul and good energy.”
Bristol-based producer McCabe has had plenty of time to develop his own sound. Famously, he released his first tracks at the tender age of 17. He’s spent the last 11 years fine-tuning a trademark sound that is effortlessly soulful. McCabe made his name in house, developing a long-running relationship with legendary US garage label King Street Sounds. Since then, he’s amassed an impressive discography, delivering inspired reworks for labels like Local Talk, Z Records, Strictly Rhythm, Room Control, Tribe, and Quantize.
