Detroit cult icon Omar S has remixed the Cosmo’s Midnight and Age.Sex.Location track ‘Have It All’, out June 4th.
A raw, bumpin’ house jam, the Omar S remix of ‘Have It All’ sees the legendary DJ and producer chisel the funk-laden original into the kind of rough-and-ready club cut that he has built his reputation around over the past two decades.
Regarding the remix, Cosmo’s Midnight said “Omar S is one of our hero’s. We’ve seen him play in Sydney every time he’s been in town for the past 7 or so years. He’s one of the kings of Detroit house and techno so we’re over the moon to have him reimagine ‘Have It All’ in his classic Omar style. Hope you like it!”.
Also out today is the entrancing Skeleten Rework of ‘We Could Last Forever’, which marks the beginning of a slew of forthcoming remixes from Hot 8 Brass Band, Gerry Read and Emma-Jean Thackray for Cosmo’s Midnight. The Yesteryear (Remixed) album brings new life to the duo’s 2020 sophomore LP Yesteryear. The acclaimed album showed a maturation for the duo as songwriters, bringing Pat to the lead vocal role. Yesteryear is a nostalgia-driven blend of alt-pop, R&B, psychedelia, disco, and funk. Reaching out 300 million streams and 5 Gold Singles in the catalogue, Cosmo’s Midnight’s sound has landed infectious success.
An LA-based collective featuring some of the most prominent songwriters in pop, Age.Sex.Location is fronted by John Ryan and Shungudzo and supported by a revolving set of close friends and collaborators, including Julian Bunetta, Liza Owen, Teddy Geiger and AFTERHRS.
One of the most respected figures in Detroit’s illustrious dance music scene, Omar S is responsible for some of the city’s finest house cuts, including ‘Thank You 4 Letting Me Be Myself’, ‘The Shit Baby’ and ‘Psychotic Photosynthesis’. Boss of his own label FXHE, over the last 15 years he’s released 6 full lengths and around 60 EPs, and more recently released an EP ‘Aint No Real Pimps Anymore’ and opened an exhibition in Detroit, Constant Gardens Party Store.
The first in a long line of Yesteryear remixes, Cosmo’s Midnight set a high bar with the help of a house music favorite.
