2009 release. Detroit's Omar S has been quietly composing some of the most exciting new underground house music of the last few years. An elusive and enigmatic figure, his label FXHE's refreshing DIY ethic -- with almost all releases on limited runs with handwritten label copy -- has developed one of electronic music's strongest cult followings. Made up exclusively of his own tracks, including special re-edits, this will be one of the most personal and exclusive mixes in the Fabric series. Omar's sound ranges from the bleepy and minimal to the haunting and soul-drenched. Hypnotic and often spellbinding, Omar's work has been limited almost exclusively to his own label, FXHE, making only irregular forays into foreign territory, with occasional collaborations with Theo Parrish for Theo's awesome Sound Signature label. Electronic music's ruthless pigeon-holing would find Omar S a tough character to pin down. His music demonstrates both his versatility, and his ability to compose tracks that are at once challenging, and accessible. As easy to appreciate on your headphones as on Fabric's main room soundsystem, every track he puts his name to is a bona fide masterpiece dripping with the soul of Detroit.
