Known internationally as the United Nations of Future Music, Om celebrates its 15th Anniversary in 2009. The label is respected worldwide for its diverse roster of electronic music, soulful house and hip hop. Whether it's the jacking sounds of Mark Farina or the groove infected House from Kaskade, Om Records have soul. Responsible for some of the most infectious music in the scene, Om's influence has spread far and wide and is now known as not just a fine label for House music, but a fine purveyor of quality music that takes in Downbeat, Nu-jazz, Lounge and Hip-Hop.
'Om:15' features all new original and exclusive material from a plethora of names within and beyond the immediate Om family to recruit a new entourage of talent that are crafting some of the most exciting music in the underground. Old and new Om fans will be pleased, this release is a nod to the past while looking toward the future. 15 years of being purveyors of taste-making underground electronic / urban music is no small accomplishment.
