Sound by the infamous JOHN
Detroit has quite an extensive history with techno and house music. The various waves of talent to bust out of the city have produced such legendary artists as Derrick May, Carl Craig, Mad Mike, Jeff Mills, Drexciya and many more than could be listed here. Their common thread: all were masters of form and function. Detroit dance music works on the mind and the body in equal measure; this requires true artistry to pull on the heartstrings while moving the ass in rhythm. One of the most recent additions to this great legacy is Omar-S.
Despite releasing all of his material on his own FXHE Records imprint until this week, his distinctive sound has catapulted him to the forefront of house and techno music. Using old-school synths and drum machines to elicit a funky mechanical feel, Omar-S has managed to show us the future by reaching back to the past. And now he is stepping out into the spotlight. With a new release on Theo Parrish's Sound Signature label and a mix consisting entirely of his own material forthcoming as number 45 in Fabric's mix series, RA sits down with the underground hero to see what makes him tick.
