What more can be said about the output of Alex 'Omar' Smith? The Detroiter's releases have perhaps been a little more varied of late than we've come to expect, but the quality nevertheless remains dizzyingly high. This white label excursion is full of floor-friendly gems, with Smith's use of classic house samples and familiar vocal samples also making it one of his most party-hearted releases for a while. Check, for example, Catch Ya, where a much-loved turn-of-the-'90s acapella rises above bouncy New Jersey organs and snappy machine drums. Better Believe It Baby brilliantly wraps a chiming synth loop and R&B style vocal snippets around a chunky, disco-fired deep house beat, while Cheat and Pull Ovaa are deliciously dusty, bass-heavy deep house workouts with just the right amount of hypnotic late night charm.
