Had Miami's Oscar Gaetan and his playground buddy fulfilled their childhood military fantasies we might have been calling him Oscar the General not Oscar G
, one half of the infamous production duo and label Murk.
Although having been prominently involved in the house music industry in the States since the early-nineties it wasn't until the release of the Steve Lawler
anthem "Dark Beat" in 2003 - made with long-time production partner Ralph Falcon - that Oscar's career catapulted to international heights and has since seen him signed to the illustrious Excession agency in the UK.
A resident DJ at Space Miami for the last five years, October 2005 will see the release of Oscar's "Made
in Miami" CD
compilation on Star69 Records, a reflection of the current and past house movement in Miami injected with the dark drums and basslines that define his production and DJ sound.
More recently Oscar has turned over his Murk back-catalogue to the likes of Steve Lawler for some 2005 remix treatment on the Funky Green Dogs classic "Reach For Me".
RA caught up with Oscar G preparing to jet into that other known clubbing hotspot famed for its sun, sand and sound systems, Ibiza, where he will he play the Def Mix
party at Pacha this Saturday.
