Born in 1978 to Ecuadorian parents, for Sabi Spinner, music was always a monumental influence. Her mother had an extensive record collection that varied from disco to rock, from merengue to salsa. This became Sabi's fuel for life. There was always music in thier home and it gave her life a soundtrack. While she was growing up, Sabi spent her summers in NYC. The melting pot of the city opened her up to many new genres of music. It was in the mid to late 80's, in the greatest city on earth, she got her first real taste of house music. It was similar to some of the music she heard before it but unlike anything she ever experienced. Always hearing stories by her cousins about how great the NYC club scene was and how all they played was house music, she couldn't wait for her turn. From sneaking out and going to nightclubs like Paladium and parties like Disco 3000 at Limelight on a school night, she developed an addiction for the music. Embracing the underground scene and heading out to raves to get her fix for the music became her life.
Years went by and the music kept changing. As she got older, Sabi developed a taste for harder beats. In 1997, a good friend sent her a wav file of a Carl Cox CD. It was love at first listen. Carl Cox's "F.A.C.T" became a turning point in her life, as it made Sabi fall in love with techno. She became a techno junkie. Going all over to catch some amazing techno DJs became a journey every weekend. In the summer of 2000, her good friend who introduced her to Carl Cox suggested she go check out an up and coming techno DJ named Misstress Barbara. Seeing Misstress Barbara behind the turntables for the first time would prove a pivitol moment in her life. Watching a female DJ rock out as hard, even harder than some of the best male techno DJ's out there was an amazing experience. So amazing that it inspired Sabi so much that the next day she bought turntables, a mixer, and $300 dollars worth of records. The rest is history. Holding many residencies in Connecticut and Florida, she is finally branching out to bring her own style of house/tech house for everyone to enjoy.
