Omar-S does it again! The Detroit native is easily one of the most consistent producers out there, churning out banger after banger all the while playing by his own rules. For the latest on his FHXE imprint, Alex O. Smith reminds us how house music can sound raw and emotive at the same time. On "Desert Eagle," jacking percussion meets beautiful synth melodies to lift your spirits and create magic on the dancefloor. B-side track "Cry Me A River" bangs the box with pounding, stripped down beats over filtered soul loops to tug at those heartstrings while moving your feet. Recommended.
