If Omar S isn’t making the deepest, most soulful house jams in Detroit (with all due respect to Moodymann and Theo Parrish, of course), leave it to him to at least be involved in them. Today’s Bomb Alert comes from Aaron “Fit” Siegel, “presented by Omar S,” on Omar’s FHXE label—and it’s a doozie.
For his first outing for FXHE, Siegel comes correct with two gorgeous slices of laidback vocal house, voiced by singer L’Renee. The original cut works a sleek ride cymbal on the upbeats, some luscious R&B-influenced vocals, and a tight bassline for maximum effect before a 16th-note hi-hat takes over and gets bodies moving.
The flip, ”Tonite (Detroit Mix),” does the dancefloor one better, introducing a new melodic synth line and an icy pad while stripping back the vocals to a simple titular refrain. An absolutely blistering label debut for this young upstart producer, and one that couldn’t be more worthy of Omar S’s endorsement.
