I gushed about TalkingCity1994, OMEGABOY’s band project, yesterday. He’s been keeping just as busy on the solo front too, releasing two new songs in the past few days. The latest, “To Night,” finds the Osaka producer wiping the dusty 80’s vibes off of his sound in favor of more straightforward dance stuff. Makes sense, considering his work in TalkingCity1994 saw him realizing his potential with that type of style. Listen to that below.

More impressive, though, is the awkwardly titled “The Best Sexy Dance 1996.” Once again, this one (at first) seems focused solely on the floor. The majority of “Sexy Dance” pulses forward courtesy of strobing synths that bring to mind the point in a night out where sleep deprivation starts kicking in, but not to the point where you want to collapse onto the club’s ground. It’s the blurry state of mind brought on by one too many intoxicants that feels like real escape, late-night ecstasy. “Sexy Dance” would be cool enough for the five minutes it indulges in this loopy rave, but then OMEGABOY pulls a Rapunzel8083. “Sexy Dance” transitions into a slightly more aggressive bit featuring the same John Cena sample he’s used before, but now he’s warping it into something new. Listen below.
