CHOON OF THE DAY: "THE MAN" - Omar + Maddslinky Remix
I may have 100 favourite female vocalists out there but there's only a very small bunch of the male ones I adore to the same extent. Mr Omar Lye-Fook has had a solid spot among the male singers I worship the most for way over two decades at this stage. His latest offer, the groovy slice of jazzy soul "The Man" has just been released via Freestyle Records. "2013 marks 10 years since Freestyle Records began, and we are immensely proud to announce that our tenth anniversary will see the release of brand new music by one of the most creative, well respected, world renowned UK soul artists: Omar" we read on the label's website. The single comes with a rather spectacular remix by Maddslinky. No-one needs to be persuaded to appreciate the Omar/Zed Bias combo after their sensational collaboration "Dancing" which I chose as one of Top 10 Best Tracks in 2011. They team-up again for the club version of "The Man". Sonic deliciousness!
