Omar’s Love In Beats Listening Party @ Shoes.com
24 January 2017 Events
Join us on Thursday 26th January at the unique and eclectic space of Shoes.com to celebrate the release of Love In Beats; the latest album by UK Soul Legend Omar Lyefook.
Following up from his acclaimed 2013 album The Man, his first for the London-based independent label Freestyle Records, 2017 sees Omar further cementing his enviable and well-respected reputation. Love In Beats is Omar’s 8th studio album and may just be his most eclectic and varied work to date.
Somewhat more electronic in its conception and sound than its predecessor, Love In Beats incorporates soul, Caribbean rhythms, an undercurrent of funk with touches of zouk, a jazzy waltz and spoken word to the fold. The project also features collaborations with U.S. soul legend Leon Ware, Blue Note pianist Robert Glasper, rapper Ty, and Guadeloupe-born singer Jean-Michele Rotin to name a few.
Mainly recorded at his own Backyard Studio in south London, Omar’s unique voice and production skills stand on the forefront. Together, Omar and Scratch have brought forth a new collection that could be his most beautifully formed and career defining album yet. Omar elaborates on his inspiration and long running musical brotherhood with Scratch which has forged this latest collection: ‘This album is a labour of love between myself and my Grammy® Award winning brother The Scratch Professer.” Powerful songs over mesmerising beats—that is Omar and Scratch’s sound. It is truly, ‘Love in Beats’.
