San Francisco-bred producer Blackbird Blackbird is best known for his deeply textured, dreamy sounds accompanied by electrifying melodies. Most closely classified with indie/folktronica genres, this prolific composer recently released a highly-acclaimed EP entitled Boracay Planet, but the young music-making-machine doesn’t stop there; he is also continuously releasing a string of top-notch remixes that are sure to get your weekend started right. Scroll down to enjoy!


This poppy Kate Bush cover shifts from a grungy beginning with a gloomy undertone to a soft uplifting melody. With airy vocals conveying a sense of delicacy and strong transitions these harmonies are sure to be pleasing to the ear.


From the beginning, you can’t help but move to this harmonious Rihanna remix. With a catchy melody and dreamy vocals it feels as though you are floating until it brings you back with the sharp trappy hook that never really loses its elegance. The softness tone makes it really easy to fall into adrift.


This mix has a spacious resonance layered with blanketed highs and dark synth lows. Taking the intense vocals of Bjork, chopped and stretched, was very powerful and complemented the essence of Bjorks dark tones very naturally.


From all of the Adele remixes out there this seems to be the most unique complex one I have heard yet. Filled with many boomy/boxy layers this is over all a crisp tune. You definitely won’t get bored listening to this.


This incredibly produced Ginuwine remix has a variety of layers that all compliment one another beautifully. What stands out the most is the incredible build-up accompanied by the high/low distorted vocals, until the beat eventually drops. Varying sounds from trap to electronic, this up beat mix will feed your ears in every way possible.

Camoflaug3 was a group that formed out of a cause rather than a musical mission. The two members who go simply by 001 and 002 are electronic music veterans and have been there from the days of when it was simply two (or three turntables), a mixer and a massive sound system hauled into some “not so legal” space.

Fake DJ is the result of this history colliding with a casual conversation about the state of the DJ nation. 001 put his hands to the keyboard and wrote the lyrics and conceptualized the track and 002 hit the studio to pull together the beats. The next ingredient was the vocalist, which had to be a Poet Laureate of sorts, someone who also understood the roots of the music and what was trying to be said. “Robert English was born for this vocal and he nailed it in just two takes, it was just perfect” says 002. The cherry on top was bringing in the legendary DJ Sneak to do the remix. His mix brings out something in the track that only he could, deep groovy bass lines and some essence of his classic You Canʼt Hide from your Bud.

As DJ culture accelerates into the mainstream it has virtually lost all of its history with this new generation of fans, left it behind as a new generation stands on the shoulders of giants, and become giants themselves pushing the architects and creators into the shadows. The musical mission statement is now very clear for Camoflaug3: respect your roots and know your art.

The most recent Om:Cast comes to you from none other than L.A.‘s Heidi Lawden! This Friday she will be rocking the decks at our third installment of the Smoke N’ Mirrors residency at Monarch alongside Edit Murphy, TK Disco and Shiny Objects. This “up-tempo mix of up-front music” in her own words:

“I realized recently that I first DJ’d around 19 years ago. I played in London with DJ’s such as Danny Rampling and The Horsemeat Disco boys as well as some U.S legends such as Pal Joey and Tony Humphries. After relocating to L.A I stepped away from DJing to focus on a music job by day. The lure of buying music and love of playing is not something that ever leaves you however, so I’m now thrilled to be building a loyal following Stateside and playing most weekends.

Excited would be an understatement when OM asked me for a mix, and in honor of the upcoming Smoke and Mirrors party I decided to do an uptempo mix of upfront music. I recorded it live in one take. SF crowds are super sophisticated and knowledgable , you better come prepared when you play there and with so many excellent local DJ’s I feel especially honored to be invited back. Next up I’m heading into the studio to make the kind of music that makes me dance all night long in the hopes it will make others do the same, and after the compliments I got for my vocals on Locussolus ‘Next To You’ I think I’ll step up to the mic too."



Join Heidi and the rest of us at the Smoke N’ Mirrors party at Monarch this Friday:

“You wouldn’t be off base to consider San Francisco’s Maus Haus one of the brightest hopes in the city’s avant/indie realm. Picture Brian Wilson meeting Marcel Duchamp and departing together, arm in arm, to plan pocket symphonies…I’m betting these fellows won’t remain a mousy secret for long.” — Bay Area Guardian

Maus Haus has just released their seven-track ‘Light Noise’ EP on Lavish Habits today!

San Francisco’s Maus Haus is a concoction of Kraftwerk, the Beach Boys, and Sonic Youth steeped in a solution of glitchy noise, dirty drums, and buzzy synthesizers. Through this heady mix, the band is still eminently approachable, with catchy vocals, and moving rhythms. The resulting sound is patently unique, yet strangely familiar.

Smoke N’ Mirrors released Edit Murphyʼs latest EP today, “Brooklyn Nights,” achieving classic house vibes with glowing synth chords, a soft kick drum, and R&B-style vocals. The effects give the track an echoing quality that perfectly complements its soulful depth.

Fantastic Man spices up “Brooklyn Nights” by adding organic percussion, bass, and delayed keys. The track wanders playfully through a development of subtle build-ups and funky, groovinʼ basslines.

Savileʼs remix stretches out the vocals, creating a slow-building jam perfect for a sunrise set. Weaving in a variety of elements and a meandering synth, his mellow interpretation pulls apart just as smoothly as itʼs built up. In “Beverly Thrills,” Edit Murphy takes a turn for disco as he develops a shimmery atmosphere complete with a short funky bassline loop. He ties it all together with sultry female vocals that add that extra bit of allure to an already glittering dance-floor gem.

San Francisco’s Maus Haus has created a very special cover of minimal-wave cult-classic “In Ultra-Violet” by Cinema 90. As story has it, Cinema 90 was a band from Seattle who gained a following for the song “In Ultra-Violet” despite it being the only song that they ever released. Maus Haus has turned this 80s fast paced nu-wave classic into a modernized dreamy adaption.

Edit emerged almost a year ago, in October 2011, with his Motown Edits series. Edit reworked tracks from a handful of originators of Motor City soul, including Marvin Gaye, Bill Withers, and Stevie Wonder. The release quickly gained attention all over the Internet, with support from equally mysterious edit-maestros, Tiger & Woods. His most recent track “Need You” first appeared on OM Lounge Vol. 12 and was released as a single on Smoke N Mirrors earlier this summer. The Brooklyn Nights EP will be released world-wide on September 25th, 2012.
