Renegade Riddims: Omega Point
Omega Point became involved in the Jungle/Drum & Bass scene from an early age, charting his origins in Drum and Bass as far back as the mid ’90s. Being around an older brother who had fallen in love with the underground scene a few years previously (around ‘93’ pre-music divide), Omega Point followed suit also taking an interest in rave music himself.
Always the keen professional, Omega Point soon picked up the art of vinyl mixing. It wasn’t long until the urge to create his own music became unstoppable. By the turn of the Millenium, Omega Point started to learn the necessary skills and knowledge to do so. It was from here that he started to produce, whilst also studying music at an academic level.
Finally, in the spring of 2017, Omega Point released his debut EP ‘Frostbite’, which was released via Beat Spectrum. The EP was definitive in itself, showcasing his skills in the studio. Offering big funk-driven beats, large twisted basslines, and experimental sound design all combined as the perfect showcase for this gifted creator.
Since his first release Omega Point has gone on to bring his sounds out on Lockdown Recordings, Rebel Music and Inhabit Recordings and currently in 2020 has further projects in the making with all 3, so keep your ears and eyes open!
When you listen to his work it’s easy to tell that the producer and DJ get his kicks from delving into the deeper, darker edges of drum and bass. A common theme across his productions is the use of funk to deliver a hard-edged sound, but still with an organic feel.
Whilst crafting his style it is clear to hear influences drawn from the 90’s techstep era that first got him hooked on D’n’B. This is reflected in his DJ sets and in his mixes, where you can expect to hear gems from the past, present and future.
