We're pushing the Spotify playlists.  I wanted to remind y'all what we have and make it easy to add to YOUR playlist.

Bump - This is a really interesting recording.  It starts off with reknown jazz vocalist Nancy King doing a lovely soul ballad.  The next half of the record is musical associates of mine from different projects that I cobbled together for some funky stuff.  I also brought in 3 turntabelists. DJDH aka Zach Spiezer, DJ Law aka Damien Hayes, and DJ FlipFlop aka Kenny Vanderberg.  FlipFlop has since gone on to a very serious and successful career scratchin' wax.  The last half of the record is Zach (DJDH - a now retired moniker) and I. We spent a lot of time in Portland and a little in Chicago putting the tracks together.  It is the birth of O.M.N.I. The last tune was techno thing that was dangling around and I threw it on the project cuz I wanted to. It's a pretty fun and funky listen.  This reocrd is a very interesting musical journey.  You finish in a very different place where than you started.

Harry's Psychedelicatessen - O.M.N.I   This was a long-in-coming follow-up to "Bump."  Zach and I got together in Florida and spent about a week recording and editing tracks in between my shows.  Zach took the files to New York to edit and arrange things.  We'd swap files and listen, and edit, and talk, and repeat.   Somewhere in there Zach pulled in Benjamin Hicock who joined the party and contributed well to this record.  This is some of the funnest stuff I get to make.  I really love it.
