Rhythm Roulette with Iman Omari

Originally from California, Iman Omari has experienced the best of both coasts after moving to New York. His development of “vibe music” put him on wax with Kendrick Lamar as well as being featured low-key at Kendrick’s Grammy performance (he used “Omari’s Mood” for the opening). Aside from his work with TDE, he’s released his own bodies of work along with working with New Jersey emcee MoRuf.

For this new episode of Rhythm Roulette, we headed into Iman’s uncle’s house to pick the three records to see what he comes up with. His uncle’s crib houses thousands of records in random order so it’s essentially a record store at his disposal. Iman ends up with Vintage on Vinyl-The Essential Grooves Part 3, Hanni El Khatib-Moonlight, and Earth, Wind & Fire-Electric Universe. His fear of finding unusable records quickly fades away once he finds a slow track, “Could It Be Right,” on the Earth, Wind & Fire album. After throwing on a few filters and his own melodies, he ends up with a slow jam for a couple to fall in love with in 2016. After a quick cameo from his uncle’s friend who cheers him on, Iman revisits the Hanni record. Before he gives away too many of his secrets regarding drops in beats, Iman ends up with a heavily altered song that Danny Brown could get with.

Watch the full episode above.
