A simple dinner in Berlin transforms into a studio session, which in turn evolves into a track, which sets the spark for what has now materialized as one of the most highly anticipated albums of late. These were the forces which turned a casual evening into an artistic crossroads for Jerome Sydenham (Ibadan Records), AYBEE (Deepblak Recordings), and Ron Trent (Prescription/Future Vision Records).
S.A.T short for Sydenham AYBEE, and Trent brings together the creative energies of three of underground dance music’s notable stalwarts. Jerome Sydenham long since etched into dance music history with his iconic NY based Ibadan Records responsible for some of the most memorable tunes of the last 20 years from a list of Kerri Chandler, Joe Claussell, Dennis Ferrer and many many others. Ron Trent another legendary icon whom’s distinguished discography spans 20 plus years, and whose Prescription label also sits atop the pantheon of dance music’s most esteemed imprints. AYBEE a Trent discovery in 2001 has since gone on to establish himself as one of the most critically acclaimed, and forward pushing producers of the last plus decade with his Deepblak imprint producing a genre defiant, labeless sound that continues break new ground in the electronic spectrum.
With the mood in Jerome Sydenham’s Berlin studio loose, and organic the trio set out to produce an album full of the elements they love about the dance-floor experience. After three weeks of literally living in the studio the S.A.T album has emerged.
