Omega is a bass music producer and DJ, currently residing in Denver, Colorado, US. He first discovered electronic music through the big beat, IDM, and industrial scenes during the late ’90s, and bought his first pair of turntables in 2000. Over the years his tastes have also included jungle, progressive breaks, psychedelic trance, and dub – and in the last couple of years have settled into dubstep and related forms of bass music. Though DJing will always hold a special place in his heart, recently writing and producing tunes has become Omega’s primary obsession.
His performances are a hybrid between a DJ set and a live performance – he uses a laptop running Ableton Live, with several MIDI controllers, effects processors, and synths. An Omega set will always include many original tunes, remixes, edits, and mashes, with a heavy emphasis on live improvisation and manipulation. His energy and stage presence, combined with his monster tunes, inevitably whip a crowd into a frenzy of bassed out bliss.
His tracks blend the most raw and aggressive aspects of dubstep – snarling synth sounds and bone rattling sub-bass – with a careful attention to sound design and elegant use of melody, creating a sound that is at once primal, funky, and psychedelic. Omega tunes and remixes have been making the rounds among some of the finest bass pushers in Colorado and California, and have recently caught the attention of some big names on the national scene, setting the stage for a major breakout in 2011.
