DJ Omar was raised in the thriving musical subcultures of Washington, D.C., where he was exposed to punk, new wave, house, go-go and hip hop at concerts and clubs. He credits this early education for the eclectic and open-minded slant he brings to mixing records. Few other DJs in San Francisco can speak of playing such a wide variety of sounds, preferring instead to stay within the genre lines. Omar’s multivariate approach resonates with many people whose tastes are equally as broad.”
Currently, Omar has returned to his roots by collaborating with Live 105 Music Director Aaron Axelsen and Popscene, the legendary club he started a decade ago. The two pioneers of the indie club scene can be counted on to throw THE after party where acts like The Cure, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol and New Order will hang out and dj after their shows.
