When it comes to contemporary takes on '80s synth-soul and drum machine heavy boogie-funk, few labels are quite as consistent as Omega Supreme. The U.S imprint's latest missive is another synthesizer-driven revivalist masterpiece. It comes from Westbrook, a new alias of Venturi man Olivier Azemar. A-side "Makin' Clouds" is slow, spacey and atmospheric, with Azemar wrapping cute synth motifs and dreamy electronic chords around rich boogie bass and ricocheting, delay-laden drums. If anything, flipside "Situations" is even better. It cleverly alternates between spacey sections rich in high register lead lines and rubbery grooves that recall the greats of turn-of-the-80s P-funk.
