Omar-S Takes on Fabric Series

Omar-S—or Alex Omar Smith, if you prefer his given name—recently explained that the artists he releases through his FXHE imprint are all from Michigan, "because people from Detroit or Michigan need to be heard."

We're not, however, going to listen to any of those artists on the upcoming Fabric 45 compilation, because the mix consists of Omar-S tracks from start to finish. Addressing this seeming contradiction, Smith says, "I don't need other people's music; I got over 100 songs released. I can make fucking six fucking Fabric records right now."

So be it. Fabric will release this installment of its esteemed compilation series on March 16 in the U.K. and April 7 in the U.S. It'll be a house and techno affair, for sure, and meanwhile, we await those other people from Detroit.

AH...very bad move i think. EVERYONE will compare it to Villalobos', and there is NO WAY IN HELL this will be anywhere near as good.

Love it. More producers should be doing mixes of just their music. Why not, if that have the catalog? I think it is far more introspective than playing other people's music. Let *everyone else* do the same thing and mix other people's records.

Here is another example of a producer doing a mix with just their music. Good shit.


Check it.
