It has been an amazing Summer and we at Om Records are proud to present ‘Kaboom’, a single from the new artist on Om’s roster, Louis La Roche . Louis La Roche (Brett Ewels) is a DJ, remixer and producer from Norwich, UK. His work appeared on several compilations from Ministry Of Sound, Modular, Defected, Neon and Annie Mac Presents, and Channel 4’s Skins. Furthermore, Louis has shared the stage with Armand Van Helden, A-Trak, 2ManyDJs and many more. At 22 years old, he is perhaps the next great hero for the British dance music scene.
Louis La Roche delivers Kaboom, a tune that will make everyone bounce with power chords, wow-wow filter sweeps, and classic chi-town-style vocals – all of which come together to create that signature old- school house sound. The second track, ’Funk Trunk Skunk’ is a funky jam with a bouncy Latin-esque beat that still holds true to La Roche’s fun vibes with warm synths. The perfect blend of raspy vocals and blaring horns would liven up any dance floor.
Smoke N Mirrors is pleased to release Wildkats’ single,‘Rock D’ Disco’. This three track EP brings a deep, pumping sound with disco toned synths meshed with a satisfyingly forthright bass.
WiLDKATS are a production collective formed in East London when Edinburgh DJs Stuart Sandeman & Scott Dickie met US import Corey Baker. After sharing ideas over a booming warehouse bass bin they decided to get into the studio. Pulling influences from 80s Funk and New York Disco they began to develop their sound; an energetic combination of groove led house and dubby disco with their trademark WiLDKATS bass-line. WiLDKATS are part of a new movement in contemporary house music fusing 80s drums, synths and bass sounds, putting their own funked up stamp on this with their catchy edits and raw dance floor killers.
Big news, Mark Farina’s seventh volume of his legendary Mushroom Jazz compilation series is finally available for the first time on 180 gram audiophile quality vinyl! For consummate fan (and the newly initiated), this limited edition double vinyl pack featuring thirteen tracks including many from Om label mates such as King Kooba ‘Bad Back’, Joshua Heath ‘More’, Colossus ‘Introduce/SLAP Mix’ and Uneaq ‘Just Move’.

WIth “Higher Ground,” Shiny Objects elevates you higher while simultaneously taking you deeper underground. The release kicks off with a compelling bass-line layered with spacy synth stabs. Michael Marshall, vocalist from the legendary hip-hop classic Luniz “I Got 5 On It,” urges listeners to abandon their daily concerns and surrender to the beat. In the classic deep house fashion, his strong male vocal is soulful and persuasive.
Maxxi Soundsystem delivers a stellar remix with rich crystalline textures and a series of ever-building layers stacked upon the original’s ominous bass-line. The Sleight of Hands remix gives us a smokey garage- influenced rethink of the original with layers of echoed vocals and an extra infusion attitude.
One of the original Om artists, Afro-Mystik, returns with ‘The Road’, his first song in 7 years. It’s classic broken-beat with a haunting ethereal vocal from Jade Alexis (of Microphone Hands fame). Check out the video below and pick up Om Lounge 13 here .
