Omar S’ Detroit proud FXHE now has a staunch reputation as one of those buy on sight labels for a reason. “Alone EP” is packed with 4 tracks of mysterious, spacey, freaked out beats & R&B tinged vocals, by John FM. Omar S also works his magic on ”Alone”. Don’t forget to check out that b2 track… infectious Loosefingers style acid bouncer!
Starting with the soulful machine funk of “Jehks” truly capturing the sounds of the city of industry in its heyday. There’s then the fine R&B jam of “Motion” somewhat reminiscent of Theo Parrish & Andrew Ashong, but it’s his smooth vocal delivery which undoubtedly makes it his own! On the flip, the mysterious and melancholic Omar-S remix of “Alone” is absolutely sublime, but just wait for the tough acid fuelled groove of “Gump” which truly takes it home in right fashion.
