|Ohmega Watts is no stranger to the Hip Hop community as he began his early career with Braille, Othello and DJ Munesine in the northwestern hip hop trio, Lightheaded. With almost 6 years since the release of his previous solo album, Watts Happening, Ohmega Watts is finally set to release his latest effort titled Pieces of a Dream. Even after a long hiatus, Ohmega Watts doesn't miss a beat, satisfying his fans and music enthusiasts alike with a electrifying single ''Higher.''|
In Pieces of a Dream Ohmega Watts limits himself from doing much sampling, and focuses on combining his love for both synthesizers and organic drums, with a touch of beat experimentation. He went on to explain that his goal was to marry late 80s and mid-nineties hip hop, with a bit of added current / future elements of the day within his own style added to it. ''I set out to create a 6-7 song sequence of tracks that would blend and mesh in and out of each other with abrupt starting points and blends, reminiscent of actual dreams we have and experience that are only realized in the middle of a happening, and may have an end point or blend into an entirely different scene or happening.''
Yessur! This one will make your dome snap off! The beats are like they are morphing and blasting off into space and the next level off hiphop! The synths are filthy, the samples are crispy and the raps are so 90's, abstract and on point. Peep ''Higher'' and you will nod in agreement! So glad Ohmega is back!
