Project Description




Pack your bags. Make sure you bring some swim wear. We are going to CAPE VERDE!

Our tour guide? None other than the ‘man with a hat’ Mr. Ach Schuh. Taking us to a place where they name Airports after singers (in this case the ‘Barefoot Diva’ from Sao Vicente – Cesaria Evora).

I have always admired DJs with a musical collection that feels more like a library than mere selection of taste. Alexander Ach Schuh is easily a librarian of Rare Grooves. His collection of Caribbean and Latin sounds is unique and goes far beyond the ‘best of’ and easily takes you on a journey. A music collection for dream dancers!

Cape Verde is not the only stop on this journey, but a great start for a 2h musical excursion.

Arrume suas malas. Certifique-se de trazer roupas de banho. Nós estamos indo para CABO VERDE!

Nosso guia de turismo? Ninguém menos que o “homem de chapéu” Mr. Ach Schuh. Nos levando a um lugar onde eles batizam Aeroportos em homenagem a cantores (no caso, a ‘Diva Descalça’ de São Vicente – Cesaria Évora).

Sempre admirei DJs com uma coleção musical que parece mais uma biblioteca do que uma mera seleção de gostos. Alexander Ach Schuh é facilmente um bibliotecário da Rare Grooves. Sua coleção de sons caribenhos e latinos é única e vai muito além do ‘melhor de’ e facilmente leva você a uma jornada. Uma coleção de músicas para dançarinos dos sonhos!

Cabo Verde não é a única parada nesta jornada, mas um ótimo começo para uma excursão musical de 2h.

DJ, musician, radio host, graphic designer and the list continues. Alexander Ach Schuh to me was also the mysterious collector with a hat. Countless times I have danced to his music back in Vienna. Countless times I have secretly admired his taste and unbelievable collection. So what does someone like him do?

It is unbelievably hard to list everything, but I thought I call out 1 special item: SABROSO

Sabroso Vienna brings music, people and the dance floor together. For open spaces and open ears. Whether club night dj-sessions, backyard pop-up events, off-line picnic with portable record player and battery operation or your birthday garden party – we are inspired by your ambitions, we help to make your visions come true. Let’s make the future dance together.
