Free Download - OMFO - "The Sorcerer" (click on downward arrow next to wave form to download)
Music doesn't always have to be so serious. It's rare in the "Global Grooves" scene to find the sense of fun and whimsy that pervades the catalog of the artist who calls himself OMFO. Originally from the port city of Odessa in the former USSR, the man who was born German Popov has just released a new album on the fine Essay Recordings label, (home to such other great artists as Shantel and Senor Coconut.). While I have enjoyed OMFO's prior releases, this new one, Omnipresence kicks things to the next level with a really fresh mix of middle eastern influences, electro beats, dubby goodness and yes, a great sense of humor that in no way takes away from the power of the grooves.
Thanks to our buddy Jean Trouillet at Essay Recordings for allowing us to share this track with you today
