Located in San Francisco, OM Records for some time has been one of the top house labels on the planet. They are aiming at branching out into the realm of hip-hop. After very solid releases like the much acclaimed Mark Farina Mushroom Jazz Series and J-Boogie's Dubtronic Science, Colossus aims to follow suit with "West Oaktown". Colossus might be a new name to some but he's far from a newbie having worked in the past with legends such as Roy Ayers. Colossus blends everything from jazz to funk into their hip-hop style and the results are amazing. Colossus have not only managed to put out one of more refreshing hip-hop albums of late but have also begun to make a serious name for themselves among the hip-hop collectives of today.
