Indie label Om Records is celebrating its 10th anniversary with the very special three-disc compilation "OM: 10 - A Decade Of Future Music." Over the past ten years, the label has built a solid reputation as a provider of some of the best funky deep house, soul based hip-hop and grooving downtempo.
Started in 1995 in a small flat in San Francisco's Lower Haight, Om Records founder, Christopher Smith, set out to create a proper label by focusing on creativity rather than commercialism. Warned early on of a flawed business model that would put them out of business within a year, they were a bit too naive to pay any attention. But ignorance in this case proved bliss, where 10 years and 200 releases later, Om Records is still here and has been integral in helping to launch the careers of Mark Farina, Kaskade, People Under the Stairs, Marques Wyatt, J Boogie, Colossus, Naked Music and many more.
Arjan loves the chill out beats of Om, and Om loves Arjan right back. The label offers Arjan Writes readers three guilt-free MP3 downloads.
Thank you, Om!
