Mysterious Cape Town based (we think) producer Omar Morto has quietly been releasing some of the sweetest, yet most impactful and polished dance music coming from the region. Their first few releases were all through Soundcloud-based mega-curators such as Wonderlust and Too Lush, garnering tens of thousands of plays and yet somehow very little local attention.
This seems to be changing slowly, as evidenced by the announcement of their booking at Johannesburg’s Grietfest. The one day festival really is a spectacle of big-room opulence, and to celebrate their participation Omar have blessed us all with a rollicking, guttural remix of Ducky’s ‘Work’. The song steps away from their usual Jersey and “Future” Bass influences and does a lot in its short run time.
Stream below, and catch up on the back-catalog of Omar Morto on their Soundcloud.
