FoundTrack's Winter '09 Collection (Track 17/22) - Rainbow Arabia - Omar K
Rainbow Arabia - Omar K (Track 17 of 22)
Album - The Basta EP (Sample/Purchase)
Label - Manimal Vinyl
Rainbow Arabia are husband and wife Echo Park-based duo, Danny and Tiffany Preston, both with a penchant for middle eastern dance music, mixed with some 808, earthshattering electro-lized elephantitus of the basslines. As if the crucial picture above doesn't tell the story. They are currently working on a full-length debut but please do catch their bombastic EP, The Basta as well as the limited edish Omar K seven inch single in the jungle colored vinyl format. Find a number of remixes and newer cuts on their rcrdlbl page. However, Sinead would agree that nothing compares to their highly touted, enriching live performance and just after they leave France this week they are returning home for a couple of LA appearances including next week at Spaceland's Club NME night. Here's an interesting music video to our featured, Omar K, which must have been shot in our fabled Rock N' Roll Ralphs, where you are sure to find hollywood's batch of animal crackers coming to life most sat nights/sunday mornings.
And by interesting, i mean absolutely insane. Wonder what this kid wants to be when he grows up?
