Tel Aviv based artist Saraga arrives on Crosstown Rebels for the first time this December with Love And Happiness. It marks his only release in 2021 so far, highlighting a standout moment for the Israeli talent.

Saraga spoke on how each track came together, stating: “Al Green is a huge source of inspiration, so Love And Happiness felt very natural. Mujer was inspired by places like Tulum and Bogotá, which is why I chose that vocal. All Day Everyday came from a pure moment when my friend started to sing on my track and Mantra was created for the desert, as I was planning to play at Burning Man.” 

Love And Happiness manifests as a minimal-leaning dance cut, with low-slung kick-hat pairings residing next to shimmering vocals throughout. Mujer brings an energetic, late-night feel before All Day Everyday arrives as an out-and-out club number. Gritty basslines merge with echoing vocal tones, whilst Mantra transports us thanks to Saharan-like whispers and tribal-flecked drum patterns.

Saraga is a well-known regular in Tel Aviv’s thriving musical scene. His productions have landed on established labels such as Nervous Records, Robsoul Recordings and Body Parts, catching the eye of leading tastemakers in the process including Marco Carola, Ricardo Villalobos and The Martinez Brothers to name a few. Performances across Ibiza, Paris, Mykonos, London, New York and a host of other global cities have brought his sound to international audiences, whilst 2022 looks set to be his biggest year yet with a huge collection of original releases, remixes and collaborations on the cards.
