Omar S the best

Born and raised in Detroit, an automotive worker. His catalogue goes on and on, however he started his label back in 2001 and no one cared. Then Oasis One happened and he became noticed. Fabric 45 happened and he stormed the European scene. His music has reached people all over the world. Mysterious by nature, you won?t get many answers from him. You can tell where he has been by listening to his many releases. You will never guess where he is going from here. His catalogue definitely speaks for itself, no matter what you are looking for his music stands alone, “Just ask the Lonely”. www.omarsdetroit.us
