Tel Aviv based composer, producer and DJ, Omri Smadar’s latest release ‘Phase of Motion’ EP receives extra attitude on the remix tip from French producer Yuksek and Jordanian musician Shadi Khries.
Making its mark on Hard First as the cosmic label’s sixteenth release, ‘Phase of Motion’ EP focuses on the amalgamation of man and machine — Smadar’s organic use of vocal chants and heady choruses are effortlessly interwoven with spacious grooves, acid basslines and infectious percussion.

Standing out on the release is ‘Adama’ — written with Shlomo Gronich and produced with Roy Shpilman, Smadar’s groove-centric flow results in an uplifting vibe, accentuated by a line of children’s vocal chants sampled from an Israeli-Ethiopian children choir from the early 90's, named Sheba Band.
Yuksek’s remix takes ‘Adama’ into more playful realms, highlighting psychedelic percussions, rounded and chunky low ends, a touch of acid and an ear-catching piano line that’s synonymous with the French producer’s disco-tinged antics. As per usual, Yuksek strikes gold with his chiaroscuro version that sheds glimmering lights over deep and dark matter.
