The Man (Refix)
Fresh from beginning his stint on Eastenders, the ridiculously multi-faceted Omar Lyefook MBE drops a new refix of 2013’s The Man.
Originally forming the title track of his standout album of the same name – his first album for the Freestyle label – the infectious melodies and low-slung beats of The Man represented some of the UK icon’s best work to date, not to mention some of the funkiest use of a bass clarinet ever. This fresh and contemporary take uses the final few bars of the original track as its starting point in a “part 2” style – and though retaining its gloriously sun-soaked & laid-back groove, Omar somehow manages to simultaneously pull off a speaker rattling banger to boot. It should come as no surprise that Omar continues to surprise us, and this is no exception.
