Wes Smith’s Hot Mess Q & A w/ The Omega Squad out of San Diego, CA

The Omega Squad, makes for another dope addition to the list of Beatport Breaks Chart personal bests with their remix of Ghetto Funk Jump Feat. Jack Bunny.  We met these guys @ the Wobble/Stanton Warriors show a minute ago and among other things, they introduced and welcomed us to the SoCal burner scene.  We are pretty sure that was a trade for kick as BBQ, but who’s counting.  Big round of applause for them as they helped blow up the Hot Mess The Album Remixed project.   A few short words can be found below;)

Q: What are a few things you would like people to know about you?

A: The Omega Squad is based out of San Diego, CA. We produce and DJ, and have played recent parties such as Wobble w/Stanton Warriors @ Spin, Leyenda Eterna @ Guadalupe Canyon in Mexico and the upcoming Wobble event w/DJ Icey, Wes Smith, Diva Danielle & Adia Break @ Spin in San Diego.

Q: Where can people find you on the Interwebs?

A: Soundcloud (www.Soundcloud.com/theomegasquad)

Q: What is your favorite track you produced?

A: Right now, probably ‘Shake’ and you can hear a sneak peak of it on the new DJ set that we posted on our Soundcloud page.

Q: Any secrets you want to share about your studio setup/techniques?

A: The new Mac Pro desktop is nuts.

Q: How much time do you spend in the studio each week?

A: As much as possible.

Q: Do you have a favorite or memorable show/gig?

A: Probably Wobble with Stanton Warriors, Wobble with the Plumb DJs, and Leyenda Eterna 2013 in Guadalupe Canyon, Mexico are tied for favorites.

Q: Do you Prefer Turntables, CDJ’s or Controllers?

A: We play on CDJs when we perform. It’s the best of both worlds – the dynamic performance aspect of turntables with the accessibility of a digital format.

Q: How do you prep for a show/gig?

A: We jam before every show. We feel like we owe it to the people who come and see us play.

Q: Any shout outs to Producers, Deejays, Crews, Pets?

A: Wobble Events, Juice Recordings, SHAFT, Goodghost, Leyenda Eterna, Wes Smith, Weasel (RIP) and Bruie.

Q: Favorite Color & Food?

A: Black and purple because it goes with black.

Thanks fellas, looking forward to jamming out October 25th!
