Treat You

A 4 track neo-soul single (9m 23s) — released October 28th 2013 on Freestyle Records

Omar continues his magnificent re-emergence back to the forefront of contemporary soul on this new single Treat You as he generously features another legend of similar pedigree: Soul II Souls' Caron Wheeler.

This story of a somewhat troubled love affair, the infectious groove rolls on whilst Omar and Caron take turns to air their issues, the bitter sweet subject matter is reflected in minor key and mellow synthesiser sounds. How these two legendary voices blend into something quite amazing isn't something that can easily be described in words - but it can be said that this duet between such fine and unique talents is a rare and beautiful thing.

Ordinary Day is where the sound heads south of the equator as Omar stamps his trademark voice and production all over this happening salsa rhythm. The uptempo, sun drenched feel is augmented by huge sounding horns, a storm of blistering, latin percussion and one of Omar's best vocal performances ever.

Opolopo, renowned remixer and producer is the man who put his stamp on the recent big club version of Gregory Porters' 1960 What? And his exclusive remix of Treat You for this single is utter class, putting the emphasis on the contemporary dance floor tip without losing any of the originals soul or integrity. One of Omars favourite remixes of his new material, Opolopo shows us why he is the man of the moment when it comes to bringing a fresh perspective to the great voices of modern soul and jazz.

Finally - long time Omar collaborator/co-producer Scratch Professer puts his totally individual & quirky touch on Treat You, rounding off this essential 12 inch single and download.
