The road of Omar LinX: bridging the gap between EDM and Hip Hop

Haling from Toronto, Omar LinX has just released his new EP titled, "Road To Mor" a collection of four collaborative songs with the influence of emerging producers Caddy Of The Sky and Hunter Siegel who's already worked with names such as: A$AP Rocky, Juicy J, Mac Miller, Chief Keef, among others. Other producers of "MOR" includes: Zeds Dead, Big Gigantic, Chase N Cashe (Producer of Drake, Eminem and Lil wayne) Arthur Mcarthur, Rich Kidd, and Fytch.

The only phrase to describe LinX new EP is a combination or collaboration of worlds. Or as LinX personally would consider it:

"A journey that I've been on since "City Of Ommz" (his EP released in 2011) and I feel I've represented that well and I think my fans all will too. I really felt it was important to give my fans something to prepare them for the album and I felt this would be the perfect way to lead into it."

His second release on the Road To MOR, "Who Are You To Judge" (Produced By Caddy Of The Sky and Hunter Siegel. Siegel, has also had a few big remixes for the likes of artists such as: Major Lazer and Adventure Club), LinX wanted to bring an electronic feel to the record and describes the process:

"We all got together in the studio and it just came together really easily but we felt it was missing something, it had the hip hop feel and the electronic elements that are the backbone of the sound of MOR but we wanted to give it a musical treatment, something to really ride out on a high note into the next release. We got with Geoff Star (of a local band named Rebel Emergency) and he honestly came in a lit it up with little to no direction. This track really sets the tone of the MOR sound, bringing Electronic Music to the Hip Hip world but with soul, something that I feel is missing from a lot of todays music."

LinX is excited to bring "MOR" to the world, literally, and this is only a sample of what's to come.
