Omega | Fearless EP

time October 21st by John-Michael authorTags: , , ,

I’m such an Omega fan boy. This guy is the mad scientist of our community. The amount of talent and knowledge he has is incredible. Chris is also one of the most loving humans I’ve met. The music he puts out is HUGE and gets quite intense compared to what I’m use to listening too. What’s also interesting is how gnarly his music can be but he’s in full control and sometimes you can hear his giddy laugh during his sets. It’s almost as if Omega has this dark evil nature but his true nature is almost shy by how massive his sound comes off.

Omega is by no means a new kid on the block either. He has be an integral part of the rising Colorado electronic music scene. You might not see him out as often but don’t worry he’s working inside his lab creating and mastering tunes. One thing that many people don’t know about yet is his project YuYu (1/2 Omega, 1/2 Cualli). If you’re not that into these aggressive massive basslines and live more for the funk you’ve got to keep your ears out for the YuYu material. It’s more along the lines of live instrumentation. You’ll have to hear and see it to understand.

You don’t usually find such explosive dubstep on this blog but I have nothing but respect and love for my friend, Omega. Check this out and support music. Major shout outs to UnMess for such amazing album art on this one!

Bass From Above / Glitchdrop / Subsynthesis

time March 20th by Dj EA authorTags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Subsynthesis.com and Glitchdrop.com, two of our fave blog friends, released their debut compilation album today, “Bass From Above.” The album features new and unreleased tracks from some of our favorite artists in the glitch/bass scene. In order to make the album as high quality as possible they recruited the professional mastering services of Bil Bless (Bless Records) who did a fantastic job in making the album sound full, vibrant and cohesive. Bass From Above is a must have for your collection. You can stream and download all of the tracks for free from Bass From Above BandCamp. PLEASE consider donating for the download, as all proceeds will be given directly to the Japanese Red Cross to support our disaster relief efforts there and to benefit those affected by the earthquake and tsunami throughout the Pacific. This is an extraordinarily charitable and generous cause and I hope everyone that enjoys the album will consider helping with the dire situation in Japan!

Omega Dubstep | The Crystal Method Remix

time November 16th by John-Michael authorTags: , , , ,

Omega Dubstep is getting it done! Huge news from homie Chris when he let me know that he got a deal to remix The Crystal Method! This is an official remix for them! The Sine Language remix is off the new release and features LMFAO. It’s great to see dreams coming true with all my friends all around the world. This track is massive and has a midtempo glitch-hop feel to it versus the regular dubstep remix format we’ve all heard before. It’s so great to see the community expand so much and everyone getting huge opportunities to shine. You can pick up the release if you’d like over at Amazon. There will be a physical release that will be out and I’ll try to remember to post a link to it in the future when available.

Be sure to check out Omega’s other tunes. He’s smashing it over in Colorado with all the other boys. I got to hear some clips of the stuff he working on now and wow. It’s incredible what you can do with sounds and it’s always a pleasure to get to experience such music. Much respect goes out to my homie Chris!

Everyone follow their dreams and never let anyone tell you that something isn’t possible!

Omega – Spectrum Mix 2010 – Dubstep

time January 13th by John-Michael authorTags: , , , ,

omega

Right now I mainly support indie producers. Luckily for me most of this music I’m into is in it’s beginning phase. This means lots of the people involved are easy to get ahold of.

A friend I’ve made is my boy Omega. This guy is going to make it BIG soon. His remixes and originals are simply breath taking. I get goosebumps whenever I hear his CocoRosie remix.

He recently just put out a new mix and I have to share. I’ve sort of taken a step back from Dubstep but man mixes like these remind me why I obsessed over Dubstep for so long.

Big up to Omega on this Mix!
You going to kill it in 2010…
