This month sees the release of a six-track LP by Big Strick, including three remixes by Omar-S (pictured), on the latter’s own FXHE imprint.
A 2×12″ package, it’s the follow-up to Strick’s well-received 2009 EP 7 Days, which found him establishing his own slant on the gritty, motor-oil-flecked deep house sound pretty much owned by Omar.
The first 12″ of the new release is given over to three Strick productions, while the second boasts three Omar-S interpretations replete with his trademark ultra-crisp drum programming. If you’ve seen Omar (real name Alex Smith) DJ recently, you may well recognise the second of these three uniformly excellent remixes.
You can listen to clips of all six tracks over at the FXHE site.
