“My most memorable Miami moment was definitely at the Om Records Party at
Karu and Y. It was about 4:45am in the morning in the Om: Soul room when
Daz-I-Kue was rocking the spot to a fully packed crowd. He was playing call
and response with the crowd asking ‘Do you want to hear the grime or do want
to hear the revival?’ Everyone put their hands up for the Revival as Daz
proceeded to let people know how it goes down in West London!” – Jonathan (here with Rob G and our ride for the evening!)

“It has to be the 8:00 beach ball battle in the garden— there’s video people!” – Chris (with our old pal Tamara)

“Without a doubt – Cobblestone Jazz’s set at our party. It blew me away!! " -Boz (seen here with Tom from Beatport and Chuck Love)

“Ah…how sad, the whole trip is a little fuzzy! I would say riding in the
cop limo, selling pretty much all of our merch, and hearing sneaks set which
was dope!!!” – Samantha

“Of course all the amazing sets that everyone threw down, but nothing beats standing behind Mark backstage and watching hundreds of hands fly in the air with complete and utter happiness at almost 5 in the morning… and it kept getting better after that!” – Lindsay (Shout out Kitty!)

Hey all—

I’m working hard at rounding up as much WMC footage as I can so you can check out what a crazy week we had down there. For now here’s a little piece to get you started!

Here’s the whole Om crew (minus Valerie, who was terribly missed—and Candace, where were you?!) right before all the madness started….

The day after our big event was a little rough on quite a few of us but, after a little bit of badgering I was able to get miss Tania Von Pear herself to come with me to the Radio One Pool Party. It wasn’t anything a little Red Bull Vodka couldn’t fix!

The mojito headache has finally gone away, we’ve all gone back to our three meals a day, and we are back in the office after a loooong week at the Winter Music Conference. An amazing time was had by all, and it is obvious by all the colds and lost voices in the office! We can’t wait to show everyone out there what we were up to all week long. We’ve added something new to our site so you can follow us on our adventures last week. We’ll keep updating as we get more content so keep checking back. Check out Om Miami TV We’d love to see what you were up to as well. Send us your photos and video to feedback@om-records.com and we’ll get your stuff up on our site too!

Anyone have any good stories??

One of the industry biggest’s tastemakers, Radio 1’s Pete Tong, has discovered Andy Caldwell’s superb track, “Warrior”! Spinning the original mix of the single on his Essential Selection show last Friday, Pete apparently spent a week tracking down the track.

One of the lead singles taken from Andy’s artist album “Universal Truth” it also features a killer remix from Claude von Stroke…a tasty package indeed! Head to the Om Digital Store now to get your hands on a copy and keep up with the Jones…

This guy did, over 300 times and it paid off. I’m totally one of those guilty people that puts off changing my oil every day. Terrible I know— maybe I’ll learn my lesson from Frank Orsenik from Wisconsin. He did what I never even imagined possible and hit the Million Mile mark in his ‘91 Chevy Silverado. Insane!! When he bought it, there was only 41,000 on it. That’s A LOT of miles a year. Hope he has a good playlist on his ipod to keep him entertained!
