Omid 16B is a true artist but also a DJ/ producer of the highest caliber and owner/ founder of Sexonwax Recordings and the recently resurrected Alola Records. His artistic approach to everything he’s touched has so far seen a prolific 15 years and is getting from strength to strength. His artist album “Sounds From Another Room” on “Eye Q Recordings”, through to his mix compilations like “Balance 13” on Stomp Australia or “In House We Trust” on Yoshitoshi have lead to critical acclaim as his singles which have been signed on to major labels like BMG/ Deconstruction just to name a few. Sponsored by industry giants such as Pioneer, Ableton, Roland and Native Instruments Omid has been hailed as one of the most cutting edge artists coming out of the UK in the past decade. His remixes have ranged from artists such as The Cure to Gus Gus, to François Kevorkian to Deep Dish and Depeche Mode amongst many others.
An artist truly in ascendance, Omid 16B had a crazy 2011. Following the release of the double-A-side ‘Rain/ Passion of Zorro’ on John Digweed’s Bedrock stable, Omid has been touring furiously. From Carl Craig’s Planet E stage at Snowbombing, through to DJmag’s 20th anniversary show at Space Ibiza to the MTV festival in Croatia, a plauded London SW4 main stage, Bestival and the Space closing parties in Ibiza, Omid has not let up.
Currently Omid is finishing the last stages of his new artist album to be released in 2012. This will be documented by the BBC who are currently making a film about DJ’s with a different background based in London and Omid 16B will play a major part in allowing the world to get an insight to his everyday life as a DJ.
Omid is not a new face to Austin – he came here 16 months ago and completely rocked the pants off Halloween. We’re extremely lucky to have him back for a truly underground party on the fringe of SXSW 2012. Invite your friends and start spreading the word.
