Yes! Sexy tune! Heard this live at Rinse@Fabric last night and it went down an absolute treat!


Just listened to this remix of Maverick Sabre’s new single ‘Use To Have It All’ on Annie Mac BBC Radio 1. Oh my, this track is biiiiiiggggggg! Crank up the volume – the drop at 1:28 smashes it!  Delta heavy are certainly in massive demand at the moment, and for good reason their recent remixes have been pretty epic, but this mix up with Sabre is simply class. It is now official, I’m putting it out there…I have a crush on Sabre’s voice! 

Download the track here:

Blessed with a soulful voice that combines a Hackney Cockney and Irish twang, with a faux-Jamaican accent, 21-year-old Maverick Sabre is fast coming becoming one of the best male UK solo artists. I first heard Maverick Sabre on BBC2 live from Glastonbury and I was utterly entranced by his unique and distinctive style, so I couldn’t be more pleased that his talents are being recognised. He first come to attention fronting abrasive slabs of dub step by Chase and Status and Professor Green, however appearing to move away from the harder bass, there is little in the way of bleeps and wobbles on his debut album Lonely Are the Brave. This album is authentic, heartfelt and socially conscious.  Switching between genres from bassy trip-hop to reggae, and mid-90s neo soul to orchestral hip-hop, this album certainly showcases his talents and is without a doubt one for the collection. I am always dumbfounded when Sabre’s voice or style is criticised…he is the real deal, a rare and unique musical talent completely distinctive in style, and I am very excited to see what else he pulls out the bag in 2012.  

Newsflash! Maverick is playing in London alongside Miss Dynamite at the Camden Roundhouse on 10th March. Follow link for tickets:
