Citizen Omega: Selfplex

At Eclectro Lounge 8 I got as promo from the artist himself this excellent self-released 2-CDR. Citizen Omega is Mr. Eero Salminen from Vaasa, Finland, where he is also a veteran DJ called Eeroville (a.k.a. DJ Willy). Citizen Omega is another well-kept secret of Finnish electronic scene. A blend of brilliant (and very professional-sounding) electro with vocoder vocals and IDM, this one should find a larger distribution. All serious electroheadz, check Citizen Omega out!

(By the way, our own act, Kompleksi, has also created some tracks in collaboration with Citizen Omega, which can be found on the latest update of our Demo 2004... The tracks are called 'Bioluminescence', 'Gothic Robots', 'Betrayal', '(I Hate Myself For) Loving You', 'Ghost At Noon' and 'No Alternatives'.)
