In other news, UK soul singer Alice Russell has leant out parts to some of her songs off of her latest project ‘Pot of Gold’ for a remix contest. Our man J-Boogie just completed his submission and uploaded it here, along with several other submissions including one from Mr. Scruff. Unfortunately, you have to create a user name and password to log in and vote (click on which remix to find the right page), but if you have the free time it’s definitely worth it, especially to hear the diversity of each producers interpretation.

My mellow, my man King Most has been holding down the intergalactic dj scene like white on rice. A northern cali native, King Most aka Patrick has been steady in the lab working on his solo debut featuring a whole list of amazing artists, none of which i can reveal at this point, but trust it will be fire. Don’t sleep on his remix work either, he’s recently dropped remix gems on artists such as the Illa J, Masta Ace, De La Soul, Common as well as blessing us with this latin mash up of J-Boogie’s Dubtronic Science feat. Raashan Ahmad ‘Alive.’ The remix is heat and if you click the banner you’ll get a nice little zip containing the vocal and instrumental. Peep it, play it, rock it and give us some feedback. Sincerely,

Your friends at Om Records.

Ulli Hackl is a fan of Raashan Ahmad

Sometimes fan appreciation is underrated, but it’s the things like this letter we received from Germany that keeps the flow moving in the office. Ulli Hackl is a fan of Raashan Ahmad and we are a fan of Ulli Hackl. Peep the letter below.

Ulli Hackl

The letter came with a self addressed label and one US dollar for postage. Ulli is in luck, cause Raashan stopped by the office yesterday and signed 5 cd’s which we will be sending shortly. In honor of Ulli we are giving out a special download from Raashan Ahmad’s solo record, The Push. Stream and download ‘Give Thanks’ below and check the video after the jump.
