Following on from the widely appreciated 2008 LP ‘Essential Fatty Acid’ South Wales based Omega 66 are preparing to once again storm the airwaves with their unique brand of funk electrobop. As with the debut, Krik is in charge of writing, playing and producing most of the material and forms a great partnership with Sally Thomas as co-writer on many of the tracks. Adrian Wiggins provides percussive delights throughout. It also features a selection of Cardiff’s rich vocal talent. The soulful Sally Thomas takes the lead on most tracks, with Sabrina Mahi, Suzi Chunk and Dionne Bennett all making superb appearances.
Extremely musically eclectic, Krik effortlessly blends together many different styles, with dance music and funk forming the bedrock. Snappy beats and funky guitar riffs are backed up by retro synth sounds, whilst the guest vocalists do an excellent job trying to steal the show with some stunning performances. All of this makes for a collection of tunes which will be eagerly received on the radio and club dance floor.
