While we imagined that things were all good just a week ago, we’re now seeing that the deterioration of Sazon Booya, which became very public at the Moomba+ And Friends party during Miami Music Week, seems to have been a long time coming. We’ve read Rot10 Musik’s official statement, and seen Sazon Booya hypeman Mystereo’s take. Now SAV, who is no longer in Sazon Booya, took the time to speak his mind on this ordeal. Here’s his statement:
When you start any partnership even outside of music two individuals come together to unite their talents and thus come together to start a business. Sazon Booya was not any different. Personal matters should be handled privately and not scattered across the Internet but since a statement was released I feel the need as an artist to defend myself from false accusations.
To say that I did nothing but video saddens me. All of our biggest shows with Skrillex, Knife Party, Sidney Samson, Afrojack, Diplo, Rusko and a slew of other big shows were made possible because of my relationship with a promoter who always believed in my abilities before the group was even formed. It’s no secret that I was never a producer when this all started but because of my video/film background, affiliations with credible producers, promoters, labels and booking agencies Joshua Vega agreed to start this group with me. Overtime he showed me the ropes and even demanded that I learn production…so I did. My partner knows what songs I helped produced and I’ll let that rest on his conscious. I have nothing but the utmost respect for him as a producer and if it were not for him I would not be a producer today. I learned a great deal from him and for that I will always be grateful.
Mystereo and myself love our fans and would do anything to keep them happy, anyone who has met us or been to any of our live shows knows this firsthand. We played a show in Miami for our fans and our former manager shut us down, nothing will ever change that because it happened. That conduct speaks for itself. Mystereo and myself informed the organizer of the event Tony Forms that we had no return tickets to get back home because our manager never booked our return flights from Miami. Tony and the promoters compensated us to book our flights.
Let this be a lesson to all aspiring producers who wish to form DJ groups or duos, always have EVERYTHING in writing. Create agreements between you and your partner(s) and make sure you TRUST your manager. Unfortunately I trusted a friend and brought him in to manage a group I created and he removed me from a group two days after a major record deal came to fruition. A deal I made possible.
It’s sad that things had to end like this but more importantly Mystereo and I would like to apologize to the fans because they are the ones who ultimately get affected by all of this nonsense.
We will forge ahead with our heads high and will continue our careers in music and entertainment. Sazon Booya posts will not reflect any of our views or opinions so for further updates please visit us on
We wish Mr Vega all the success in the world because he deserves it.
