Red Bull Music Academy proudly presents Detroit Legend Omar S for a super special 4-hour set. Joining him for the first time will be RBMA alumni and boutique label boss Doc Daneeka. Alex O. Smith, better known as Omar S, is a man of mystery from Detroit’s underground. His low-key, raw and dirty house tracks have been dropping jaws among music enthusiasts around the globe, and usually come only on limited edition white label with handwritten info via his FXHE imprint. Whether these tracks are deep and emotional or harsh and minimalistic, Omar’s music pays tribute to Chicago house and Motor City techno – somehow so primitive yet challenging, advanced and unpretentious it is yet to be properly defined.
The Welsh-born, Berlin-based producer is full of surprises. Whether it’s the bass drops on tracks like Mario’s Mushrooms or Bumble Bee Riddim, or the clipped vocal refrains of Dizzee Heights, Doc Daneeka keeps the flow bubbling – and the only catch-22 is whether to dance or trip out.
