If you are still sleeping on the creative musical brilliance of Iman Omari (or Emon) despite our repeated urgings to seek out his work with utter urgency, then we really do despair. Numerous production and guest appearances with Overdoz, his production of ‘Chapter 10’ for Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Section.80’, his incredible work with The LogOs project, and now his movement firmly into the spotlight his talent deserves through stunning debut EP ‘Energy’.
We’ve told you before that ‘Energy is a brilliant slice of futuristic, smoke-drenched R’n’B that combines some of the mellowest synth-led hip-hop sounds of production duo THC (who co-produced some of ‘Energy’), with what is simply pure soul. We’ve informed you that ‘Energy’ is an intricately constructed mini album of downright excellence, swirling beats and opiated melodies, with fantastic song-writing and lyricism. We’ve said that listening to ‘Energy’ is a bit like floating on a cloud of titties to a marshmallow, massage and kush party in a velvet beanbag. And still you want more. So here it is, via The Twelve, yet more reason why Iman Omari is one of our picks for greatness. And, yes we did say cloud of titties. Again!
