Justin Martin and Johnny Fiasco step up for the latest Om compilation 'Winter Sessions'. Check inside for details on how to win it and other Om goodies.
Om Records is the long-running West Coast house output that is home to artists such as DJ Sneak, Miguel Migs and Greenskeepers. Known for its signature blend of funky house and deep house, the label was founded in San Francisco by DJ Fluid in 1995. Om is also known for its mix series such as Om Lounge (downtempo), Deep Concentration (hip hop), House of Om (house) and Late Night (deep house).
'Om: Winter Sessions' features San Francisco up-and-comer Justin Martin, a house producer with singles on Buzzin' Fly ('The Sad Piano') and Dirtybird ('Cicada'), a label which he runs with Barclay Crenshaw aka
Claude VonStroke. For his debut mix CD, Martin taps producers from Berlin (Phonique, Jochen Trappe) and London (Mike Monday, Switch) as well as labelmates VonStroke and the Martin Brothers.
Disc two comes from Chicago house mainstay Johnny Fiasco, who had a string of releases on Curtis Jones' Cajual label in the early nineties. Fiasco was part of Chicago's house renaissance together with Derrick Carter and Mark Farina, so expect a funky house mix in the true spirit of Om.
