OMEGAMAN
AUG 2018 CHART
It’s been a few years since Fort Knox Recordings’ own Australian artist Omegaman has dropped some new music on the label. We are excited to welcome back our friend from Sydney with his brand new Babylon Don’t Interfere EP, which is a collaboration between the Aussie and some talented Washington, DC based vocalists. The renegade funk’n’soul label from the US Capital is the perfect home for Omegaman as he explores the boundaries of funky breakbeats, latin and reggae vibes. The title track features reggae legend and Grammy nominated Desi Hyson on vocals, an empowering roots-rocker rejection of Babylonian corruption. Desi’s voice will be familiar to many as he has had a long career as a vocalist and keyboardist for the Original Wailers with Junior Marvin and Al Anderson, See-I, Culture, Moja Nya and others. Omegaman enlisted the skanking guitars of Marty Fabok of The OzSkas and Allniters on this track too, as well as Katherine Vavahea and Scott Russell of Red Wine Roses on background vocals and saxophone, respectively. The end result of this cross-conti- nental collaboration is a wicked modern roots anthem with an uplifting message. The “Happy Ending Whisper Song” features Washington, DC-based soulstress Edy Blu who has also recorded and performed with See-I. Edy Blu has been on an extended singer-songwriter walkabout around the world with her guitar, and in the process worked with Omegaman at his Studio 57 in Sydney. Together they crafted this funky, tropical soul groove as an ode to their dearly-departed mutual friend Jon Horvath of Fort Knox Five, who inspired and supported both Edy and Omegaman. With his beats and her lyrics together they take you on an upbeat and hook-filled cosmic ride to the other side, as Edy says “We all get a light and we all travel on....” We are excited about Omegaman’s new tunes and these awesome collaborations. Expect more with Edy Blu coming soon, as well as some excitin
