Love In Beats is Omars’ 8th studio album and may just be the most eclectic & varied to date.

omarSomewhat more electronic in it’s conception and sound than it’s predecessor, Love In Beats incorporates soul, Caribbean rhythms, an undercurrent of funk, with touches of zouk, a jazzy waltz, spoken word and also features collaborations with US soul legend Leon Ware, Blue Note pianist Robert Glasper, rapper Ty, Guadeloupe born singer Jean-Michele Rotin, and Uk soultress Natasha Watts, The Floacist and Mayra Andrade, the Cape Verdean born singer who lives and records in Paris.

Mainly recorded at his own Backayard Studio in South London his unique voice, multi -instrumental and production skills, together Omar and Scratch have brought forth a new collection that may just be the most beautifully formed and career defining album of all. Omar expands up on the inspiration, and the long running musical brotherhood which has forged this latest collection: ‘This is album is labour of love between myself and my Grammy award winning brother The Scratch Professer. Powerful songs over mesmerising beats in the evolution – that is omarmusic and Brothers sound, it is truly ‘Love in Beats’

Neo Soul Cafe’s Best of 2016

Neo Soul Cafe’s Best of 2016

Last year, Neo Soul Cafe staffers compiled an impromptu list of music that was deemed as the best music released in 2015.  In an effort to reach more people, we thought it would be best to publish the list, so it can be easily be referenced.

We are so excited about this music.  It was hard to scale down the list. There is so much dope music in the world and we’ve only tapped in to a small percentage of it. We wholeheartedly feel these artists and their projects have made an indelible impression upon us.

Check out the music.  Vibe out! Support the artists by purchasing their music.  Then if you love what you hear make a conscious decision to see them in a city near you.  There is nothing that can compare to the live experience.  Enjoy!r
