omar s fuck resident advisor

As techno fans in America were mourning the cancelation of the annual Memorial Day weekend celebration Movement Festival due to the pandemic, Detroit producer Alex O Smith (a.k.a. Omar-S) took to social media to announce the title of his upcoming six-track release, Fuck Resident Advisor.

Smith added in the post, “T Shirts coming soon too!”

The post, whose title references the popular electronic music website and ticketing service, immediately went viral and elicited a variety of comments from his followers.

According to Bleep, the release features John F.M., Rick Wilhilte, Norm Talley and O B Ignitt.

In a post published earlier today, RA said they had reached out to Smith about the title but haven’t heard back yet.

Fuck Resident Advisor will be released on June 19 via Smith’s label, FXHE.

GLXY 5 Tracks of the Moment

GLXY

Adjectives like “rising” and “up-and-coming” have been used to describe London-based drum ‘n’ bass duo GLXY on countless occasions over the past few years. During this time their fresh, liquidy sound has evolved over the arc of various productions, where they’ve consistently presented engaging musical concepts. In the process, their profile has risen and they’ve amassed a legion of faithful believers.

With the April release of their flawless debut album, Research & Development (Shogun Audio), Tom and Jonathan from GLXY have officially arrived.

Their 12-track full-length is a brilliant musical statement, one of the best long-players of the first half of 2020 for sure. Research & Development features five sleek vocal tracks (our fave is “Conclusions” feat. Steo) as well as expansive, atmospheric rollers like “Changed Forever” and a funky, red-hot head-nodder called “The LP Track.”

From lockdown in London, the guys wax poetic about their five favorite tracks of the moment.

Calibre – Years

Been waiting for this tune for literally years! Calibre’s Shelflife releases are always a special time for his fans so we’re glad that number six is finally here!

Submorphics, Pola & Bryson – Albion

Put simply, one of our favorite releases of the year so far. Three friends joining forces to make some quality music!

Halogenix – Reminisce

Laurence can do no wrong. His latest Dragonforce EP absolutely bangs, and this is our fave cut from it.

Break – Got a Feelin’

It’s Break – not sure much else needs to be said. What a guy!

Sustance – Squirt

Oscar has been relatively in the shadows, mastering his sound. His productions are so cutting edge it hurts. Glad to see his latest release get the widespread attention it deserves. He’s dangerous!

Ben Delay

Red-hot German DJ/producer Ben Delay made quite a transatlantic splash with his snazzy contribution called “Brooklyn (Back In Time)” heard on the four-track Brooklyn Sessions 2020 EP, a release that dropped in April on Nervous Records. The famed NYC label invited Ben, along with London-based biological brothers in rhythm Ash from Trutopia and Lisbon’s Moullinex, to collaborate in a Big Apple studio in September 2019.

After Trutopia shared their five tracks of the moment, now it’s time for the Cologne-based house music maestro to tell us which tracks are floating his proverbial boat. Read on to find out more. Continue Reading
