The DJ-mix series at London club Fabric is typically a forum for artists to show off their eclectic tastes and exquisite sequencing skills, but the set by Detroit tech-house artist Omar S captured on 2009’s Fabric 45: Omar S—Detroit was instead a brilliantly woven compilation of an unprecedented run of dazzling self-released 12-inches. That mix became his breakthrough, but rather than use his newfound recognition and high-paying DJ gigs to up the production value of his music, he took the opposite approach. The following two albums, 2011’s It Can Be Done, But Only I Can Do It and 2013’s Thank You for Letting Me Be Myself (both released on his label, FXHE Records), are bruising and occasionally cosmic throwbacks to late-80s and early-90s lo-fi house and techno. Omar is one of the most dynamic and precise DJs I’ve ever seen, so if you haven’t witnessed one of his DJ gigs before and you’re a fan of Detroit techno then this is not a date to be missed. —Tal Rosenberg
