      Omar S Feat. Simon Black

      I'll Do It Again

      Omar-S introduces Detroit's newest diva on the scene, Simon Black with an X-Rated 12" for the real freaky types. In line with some of the definitive vogue house tracks of the past, "I'll Do It Again" will become a future ballroom staple. On the flipside, "Freaky Type" sees Black slows it down and steams it up with some nasty vox over a beat produced by FIT Siegel. High kicks and hand snaps all around!

      Matt says: Mental good record here from the people's favourite pinball wizard and sports car hoarder. "I'll Do It Again" shows all the signs of becoming a mini-anthem across the global dance village. Get in on the action before everyone else and get this bagged pronto!

      Brand new Omar S, arriving as ever with little fanfare but instantly hitting the spot. A-side tracks "Less Pain" and "Untitled" are two familiar blueprints to the FXHE engine. The former is a early doors tickler with tasty vocal chops and church organs, the former is a dubbed out, techy number with that patented Omar S fizz.

      B-side track, "One Of A Kind" is a huge proto-boogie-house crossover with warm piano chords, even warmer B-line and a melody that'll conjure up memories of Italo through its sawtooth digital synthline.

      It find Omar as reliable as ever - multi-purpose music for multi-purpose individuals with absolutely no superfluous bullshit. Even the cover is well street!

      FORMAT INFORMATION

      Ltd 12" Info: Hi-gloss hi-def picture sleeve!

      Alex Smith - back on top form here with two absolutely killer tracks. Remember!: it can be done, but only he can do it! "Your Socially Awkward Criminal" is CLASSIC AOS material, emotive AF with a sizzling perc section and beautiful keyboard lines. Undeniably from the FXHE with its raw, hardware-powered sound but riddled with emotion, churning out at full volume of all the best pinball arcades across the east side. "Games That We Play" features vocalist Diviniti and is powerful, soul crushing beatdown soul; again resplendent in Omar S-patented goodness. The Detroit producer has done it again, reminding us just how effortlessly he creates magic sometimes. Highly limited and most recommended, do not sleep!

      Omar S likes to keep things in the family for his pioneering FXHE label. Big Strick is his cousin and this double pack features the dark brooding sounds of Detroit's underbelly that the label has popularized over the course of its catelogue. "Old E 800 (Omar S Mix)" opens proceedings and is a squelchy, acid-tinged 4/4 groover with those clicky, motorik hi-hats that typify FXHE releases. Over the course of the track a driving, searing synth line dramatically changes its course, conjuring up Blade Runner style soundscapes and menacing tones. "100% Hustler" is also mixed by Omar S and is a straight up jacker with rolling hats, catchy bass hook and minor key piano lines - don't even think about leaving the lights on when this drops. "Whatup Doe" harks back to very early Omar S styles; lo-fi, flanging hats, sharp resonating percussion hits and pure Motor City pads gluing everything together. The second plate comes with originals of "Old E" and "100% Hustler" and are less stripped back and brighter in tone than Omar S's head-down, smoky versions. Final track "Click It Or Ticket It Niggic" (strange title I know) tops things off with a driving beat and a cavernous, Berlin-esque sound palette. A bit Newworldaquarium with its submerged production and a bit Maurizo with its straight-up, heavily jacked groove. A solid addition to any FXHE / Sound Signature / KDJ fans record box

      Matt says: First time back in stock since 2010. One of Strick's finest moments to date and with Omar S in full support - you know what to do!
