OMAR-S

In a city known for strong personalities, Omar-S stands out: The Detroit techno producer's 2011 album was titled It Can Be Done But Only I Can Do It, a succinct summation of the philosophy behind his 2009 mix CD for Fabric, comprising only his own productions. (Responding to comments that minimal-techno icon Ricardo Villalobos had taken a similar tack with his own Fabric mix, Omar-S snapped, "I don't even know who Ricardo Willalobo is….Who the fuck is that?") Undaunted, Animal Collective booked the DJ and FXHE label head as the sole American house/techno DJ for their edition of All Tomorrow's Parties in 2011. Only he can do it, indeed.
