Stream Omar's 'Love in Beats' Remix Effort Featuring DJ Jazzy Jeff + Leon Ware
Do your Googles if you’re not familiar with British soul pioneer Omar and his musical stylings.
The man whose father worked as a studio musician and drummer with Bob Marley has been dropping bombs on audiophiles since the age of 13. Now, this multi-instrumentalist (trumpet, piano, bass guitar and drums) is back with a project totally worth your earholes.
Love in Beats, which follows up from his 2013 album The Man, marks his first effort for the independent label Freestyle Records. Overall, this is Omar’s eighth studio album, and just might be his most eclectic and varied to date. Love in Beats features collaborations with Robert Glasper, Guadeloupe-born singer Jean-Michele Rotin, The Floacist, Mayra Andrade and the late, great soul legend Leon Ware.
Recorded at his personal lair, Backayard Studio, in South London, Love in Beats is one of the most beautifully crafted, artistically sound and organically orchestral album to come out from the legendary musician.
