Omar - Simplify



Freestyle Records

Released: 11th September 2015 | 2 track reggae single

Omar, the UK soul legend, keeps things fresh and comes with a new two track release that shows why he is and always has been one the the UK's most original and consistent talents.

Scratch Professer is an award winning producer and remixer, DJ and MC who also just happens to be Omar's brother, so who else is better suited to give the opening track from 'The Man' album, Simplify, a proper skanking, jerk seasoned, sun drenched re-rub?

And, coupled with this brand new track, we have a very special treat.. how does an unheard and until now unreleased original track from the Omar archive sound?

Get Away dates back to around 1994 - and the fact that it sounds box fresh and utterly contemporary, is proof that Omar's sound and style is timeless. With his own unique musical fingerprint that has inspired many - including new soul star Jarrod Lawson - but has never been bettered.

"Omar at his best, Nuff said."
