Modern highlife luminary, Rex Omar is a force of the Ghana music scene. With a career spanning 30 years he has evolved the genre, pushed boundaries and dazzled listeners with his inventive output.
A definitive piece of Omar’s repertoire comes via his Dangerous album - critically acclaimed in Ghana, it’s a self-produced gem recorded in London circa 1997, with help from Ibibo Sound Machines Kari Bannerman and prolific Jamaican producer Bill Campbell. Released on CD only and distributed exclusively in West Africa, the album gained immense popularity in Omar’s homeland reaching platinum status.
Soundway, presents the four premier cuts for a new self-titled EP, along with Kele Ngele taken from his 2004 album Ajala. Finally given the vinyl treatment, it's a London-centric blend of street-soul-come-highlife 90s RnB, certain to captivate the discerning ear. Staying true to its original colab effort, London based producer Aroop Roy steps in with a modern rework of the four-to-the-floor scorcher Dada, revisited and repurposed for today's dancefloor.
