The Detroit producer is next in line for the celebrated mix series.
Fabric will ask you to put your hands up for Detroit later this year when it invites Motor City producer Omar-S to become the next artist to grace its celebrated mix series.
The fiercely independent producer isn't repping his city so much as himself, however, as the tracklist looks a lot like Ricardo Villalobos' turn at the Fabric helm. That's right, Fabric 45 is an all-Omar affair. The street racer has put on some of his most famous productions, most notably "Psychotic Photosynthesis" a song which Omar claims he put together in a matter of minutes, and added four new tracks of previously unreleased material. In typical Detroit style, he told Fabric, "I don't need other people's music; I got over 100 songs released. I can make fucking six fucking Fabric records right now. I can probably make fucking ten CDs just of unreleased shit."
As for how to play this mix? Omar suggests the louder, the better: "A lot of my music sounds better when it's really, really, really loud, because I made it really, really, really loud. All the speakers in my studio are blown right now. The same headphones you see me DJ with are the same headphones I've had for fifteen years. Every track I've released came through those Sony headphones that I travel with."
