Nervous Records tabs Oscar G for 3-disc artist album 'DJ' (de'ja') -
Edited Press Release
At a time when most dance labels are cutting costs, stripping back and
going digital only, Nervous Records is doing the opposite with Oscar G’s
new three-disc effort, "DJ" (de'ja'). Oscar’s project comes without the
influence or suggestions of hit-making Nervous Records, the label said.
WORD'N'BASS obtained samples of Oscar's latest House music tracks from
his upcoming album, which includes a disc of new productions, a live
mix and a DVD of Oscar G in concert.
This is 100% from the mind of Oscar G (pictured left) and
offers a comprehensive and honest look at what’s made this artist a
sensation at home in Miami and via the global dance charts.
Disc 1 features 10 brand new Oscar G original productions. Those
familiar with Oscar’s chart topping work with Murk partner Ralph Falcon will be surprised by
Oscar’s new direction. While tracks like "Stuck On You (featuring
Stryke)" and "Your Love (Featuring Tamara Wallace)" will appeal to fans
of solid vocal house, there’s also a surprise in store for those into
dance’s music minimal side. "Innosence" (click here
for free download) is a solid piece of minimal 4/4 electronic music
wound tightly with all sorts of lovely bleepy things and gorgeous
melodies. It’s beautiful stuff and the product of Oscar G’s recent
shift from analog to digital gear.
Disc 2 offers a look into Oscar G "The DJ." Now, this is not just
another disposable DJ mix recorded somewhere out there. This mix was
recorded live and represents Oscar G’s DJ set on the Space Miami
Terrace at 7AM on @ Sunday morning -- peak time. A Space resident DJ
for nine years, this mix CD offers a look into what this world renowned
residency is all about. The disc is programmed with tracks that can
only be described as "the Miami sound." That’s because Oscar chose
tracks from many friends and fellow Miami producers including Christian Falero, Ralph Falcon, Lazaro Casanova and more. If the
artist album and DJ mix doesn’t give you enough of a picture, then flip
over to Disc 3 for a video documentation of an evening of music
conducted by Oscar G at Space Miami. Watch the DVD trailer here.
"The reality of plummeting cd sales, and increased closures of music
stores makes it increasingly difficult to justify the expense of
producing interesting, high quality physical CD packages. But as much
as I have to play the role of label president, I'm also a fan of the
dj/producers on the roster. And as a fan I know the kind of product and
package that would make me want to make something part of my
collection. The new Oscar G CD, for example, is a triple pack digi-pak
double cd/dvd. It's an amazing release and I know that if we do our job
and make something special, the fans will support," said Michael Weiss, Nervous Records
President in a press release.
In addition to the release of "DJ" (de'ja') Oscar G is also in the
launching several exciting new projects. First up is the launch of
Oscar’s brand new label Three-O-Five Digital (www.myspace.com/threeofivedigital)with
partner Stryke and featured artists Ralph Falcon, Lazaro Casanova and Noise Artistry. You can check out
the labels first release "The Made In Miami EP" on MySpace. On the live
front, Oscar G expands beyond the walls of traditional 4/4 beat driven
clubs and takes it back to his Cuban roots with a brand new weekly
Wednesday night residency at Hoy Como Ayer. Once dubbed "CBGB as a
nostalgic salsa joint in the heart of Little Havana," Oscar’s sets at
Hoy Como Ayer will feature a fusion of traditional Cuban music with
house music and lots of exclusives created just for this party.
Oscar G "DJ" (de'ja') is released August 11, 2009 on Nervous Records.
