Overview

Om 100, which celebrates the 100th release of Om Records with a two-CD set of previously unreleased material, starts off with King Kooba's "Salvation." It's an appropriate track to begin this kind of collection -- worthy of dancefloors and living room chill-outs -- because it seems to look back with fuzzy-at-the-edges beats and jazzy keyboard orchestration that seamlessly evoke some lost vintage sound. Afro-Mystik picks up this thread with the soulful vocals and world rhythms of "Natural." Other highlights include "Pimp Rekker"'s electro-R&B track "In Time," Soulstice's shimmering, funky "All Right" and hip-hopping "Never Stop," and techno innovator Juan Atkins' beautifully experimental "Something About the Music," which still easily eclipses most electronic producers. But the true winners on Om 100 are the People Under the Stairs, whose old school, underground hip-hop on "The Bomb Combo" -- tipping a hat to both 1992 and 1986 -- is nothing less than revelatory. All in all, Om 100 is a great record, a sweet party mix, a perfect chill-out set, and a history worthy of a label that's still growing.
