As part of our promotion to Omies in the lead up to our first major UK event on Saturday 24th May in London, we’ve created something a little special with our partners in crime for the party Freerange Records.
10 exclusive tracks of lush, deep, tripped out house music from Om & Freerange lovingly mixed by the fabulous Florian Kruse and brought to you by the no.1 music website – DJdownload.com.
Here’s some of your favorite Omies most memorable moments from the WMC – -
“Cobblestone Jazz, Ancient Astronauts and Samantha James!!” – Gunnar
“Watching the crowd in the garden sing ALL the words to Samantha James’ "Rise"" -Tania (pictured here with Mike Monday)
“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!)
Big thanks to Alex who took the time out of his day to get us all to the party!
Candace and Marissa were at the party too, didn’t get memorable moments from them…. maybe cause they had too much fun??

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!
More to come folks!

So Miami got the best of me and the contest that was suppose to happen everyday until our big WMC party didn’t happen. Paying for internet in airport terminals suck and lets just say I needed all my funds for overpriced alcohol in Miami.
So to make it up to you guys, I’m holding on last big contest.
Jansport recently launched their artist series. The artist series is a new line of bags designed by underground up and coming urban artist. Check them out here. Jansport was kind enough to donate artist series bags for VIPS / Artist. The bags received rave reviews from Mark Farina, Colette, James Curd, Andy Caldwell, Marques Wyatt, the guys at Asaics & Modular Records, Time Out, Samantha James, and more.
HOW TO ENTER: Send an email to “firstname.lastname@example.org” with the words “WMC Countdown” today and be entered to win. Three (3) random emails will be drawn out to win the prize. Winners will be announced in tomorrow’s blog contest blog posting.
Brought to you by our friends at Om Records.
DAY 4: Win Tickets to the VIP Party & Om WMC 2008 WTF! Noone entered this contest!
