Before neo-soul started to emerge from R&B and when acid jazz was just coming to these shores, if you were up on Omar your taste was automatically vetted as refined and hip. Omar's songwriting and vocal timbre remained consistent even as the musical textures of soul shifted, so whenever you discovered Omar, it was a defining experience. While Maxwell and D'Angelo can rightly be identified as birthing modern soul, Omar's catalog matches their work in quality and influencek. The UK soul icon will be rocking with Asheru & the Els as the centerpiece of tonight's Soul Britannia party at the Loft. DJ Jahsonic and DJ Adrian Loving will set the vibe with selections from Omar's peers like Soul II Soul and Loose Ends.
