Brooklyn-based synth-pop darlings Body Language have just announced dates for their fall tour! Body Language has already toured with the likes of Zero 7 and Siaand played alongside artists such as Passion Pit, Little Boots, La Roux, School of Seven Bells, Theophilus London and Jimmy Edgar. This upcoming fall tour has them playing multiple dates with The Hood Internet! Their forthcoming LP “Grammar” is slated for release on Lavish Habits in February 2013.

“Body Language are doing dreamy mysterious synth-pop.” — The New York Times

“Sunny and buzzing.” — FADER

NPR First Listen Feature – Social Studies offers up a full-flavored serving of everything from tropical beats to neo-soul to a dash of indie rock. Body Language may traverse an impressive range of styles, but the group has only one clear motive: to move bodies on the dance floor.” — NPR

“Soulful dance-worthy grooves.” — Rolling Stone

“Body Language are in the same ballpark, quality-wise, as, respectively, early Madonna, the disco label Prelude’s 1982 output, and CSS doing an impression of Dr Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band. That is some ballpark. It is possibly the greatest ballpark there is.” – The Guardian

“We haven’t been able to get this Brooklyn-based quartet out of our heads…and that’s a good thing.” — NYLON

“Brooklyn dance-pop act Body Language make music practically designed for remixes.” — Pitchfork

“Gets busier with the R&B, and floats twinkling glockenspiel and twee boy/girl harmonies over bin-rattling booty bottom.” — SPIN

Nothing compliments a sunny afternoon better than a DJ-set full of summer sizzlers. So get your beach blankets out, fire up the grill, and slap on some shades, because Summer Sessions is here to give your dog days a much-needed boost. This compilation is the perfect mix of new school jams and old skool hits: a heavy helping of classic Om tracks from the likes of Ming & FS, Marques Wyatt, King Kooba, and Miguel Migs lend a nostalgic, late-90s house vibe while newer Omies like Crazy P, Pezzner, Shiny Objects, and Nav Izadi lend a modern retake on those deep disco sounds. Including three brand-new, unreleased edits by Rob G, this compilation is sure to add some heat to an already smokin’ hot summer.

J Boogie steps into a new realm with an exclusive edit of Little Dragon’s song “Crystalfilm”.

Blurring the lines between deep house, moombahsoul and techno, his version bumps along at 111 BPM with sexy percussive accents, big boom toms, and a Detroit 909 feel. Already getting love from DJs like Anthony Valadez, Jeremy Sole, Sabo, Marques Wyatt & DJ Theory. Enjoy!

If you’ve ever met a vinyl DJ in your life, you will know that these wax “purists” sure loves their records! Here at Om Records, we agree: we think that records have something magical about them! Vinyl holds the key to that “warm sound,” not to mention other vinyl-related treats (such as scratching and all other types of turntablism) that cannot seem to be perfectly recreated on digital machines. In other words, nothing beats these the charm of these phono-monsters! Scroll down and check out all of the delicious vinyl treats that Om Records, Smoke n Mirrors and dirtybird records have released so far this year. Click the image of the vinyl to check it out in-store…

Our good friend and SF-based producer Justin Martin made his very first release on dirtybird records in 2005. Seven years later, he delivers his long-awaited debut artist album with the very same smile and fun loving attitude he’s had since the beginning. “Ghettos & Gardens” is exactly as advertised – a tender and tough collection of songs that build you up with sweeping strings, then break you down with earth shattering basslines. It’s sunsets vs. cyclones, roses vs. razors, and bunny rabbits vs. wolverines.

Maybe it’s the streets of San Francisco that made his music this way – a place where you can see a beautiful woman and a crippled homeless addict on the same city block. Maybe it’s the juxtaposition of the famous dirtybird Golden Gate park parties, where Justin’s loving parents make tacos and chop fresh salsa while total freaks lose their minds in front of the massive sound system. Not a whole lot of producers are just as influenced by E40 as they are by LTJ Bukem, and even fewer of them played the jazz saxophone in high school.

Whatever is going on, most people would say that Justin is one of the most charismatic likable DJs to walk the earth. In this album Justin demonstrates his unique ability to blur the lines between musical genres, taking us through beautiful melodies, UK basslines, moody funk and devastating drops. You can hear the meticulous produc- tion techniques in every track – from the slow Hip-Hop style of Hood Rich to the heavy duty low-end of Molokini. The whole thing is fresh and uplifting like the smell of ozone after a lightning strike. Ghettos & Gardens sounds like nothing else out there – it could not have come from anyone but Justin Martin.
