Sydney, Australia’s Omegaman is back at it again, this time with a bangin’ Remix EP of his recent release on Fort Knox Recordings, the Hot Sauce EP. A longtime producer, collaborator and remixer, Omegaman has already left a mark on the international funk and breaks scene. Building from a very strong original release, Omegaman enlisted the production talents of some of his closest friends around the world, and the result is a funky slice of the tropics dished up for the dance floor massive.
Washington, DC’s kings of Tropicaliente, the Empresarios are featured on Oye Como Suena and the Skeewiff Remix ignites the vibe into an irresistible salsa breaks banger.
The funk hits the fan with the Fort Knox Five Remix of Lovers Skank featuring Patou, pure electro-ska with some groovy bass lines. The hi-hats and percussion are crisp on Qdup’s Remix of A Bailar featuring Vincent Sebastian, another slice of electro Latin funk for the dance floor. Rounding out the EP are the big beats and reggae skanks of DJ Maars’ Remix of Follow Me, and Mustafa Akbar’s vocals fit perfectly with the funky dancehall soul sound.
Blending together various rhythms from Latin, reggae, ska and funk has become Omegaman’s calling card, and he has pulled it off once again. Building on the strength of the original release, the Hot Sauce EP takes it to the next level with hard hitting bass, electro, breaks and big beat designed to make people dance.
