It was about a year and a half ago when we kicked this blog off with an exclusive interview with Omar-S. At that time, he was blowing up the underground left and right. Our interview with him was the first one out there, and I think any readership that we got initially can be traced to the popularity of that interview. We STILL get tons of hits from links to that post. Just a few months after we ran that interview, he put out “Psychotic Photosynthesis” and suddenly people started paying more attention on a wider scale.
Now, he has mixed the upcoming Fabric 45 CD, he has a 12″ that just dropped on Sound Signature, and his deejaying is in even more demand. I got a chance to talk with him on the record again, this time for Resident Advisor. We discussed the breakouts of some of the artists who got their start through FXHE, outsider perceptions of Detroit, Dam Funk, and all sorts of other stuff. Check it out!
