In 2005, Ohmega Watts turned heads in hip hop's underground with his debut The Find, an impressive release of slick rhymes and beats that drew comparisons to Pete Rock. However, his follow-up "Watts Happening" didn't garner the same buzz, which is too bad because most missed out on one of the best indie releases of 2007. Something I really like about this sophomore release is that Ohmega is not bound by the rap designation; some of the best tracks feature no rapping at all, instead venturing into the genres of soul, blues, and jazz. And although he uses an MPC to create his beats, he is not bound by the machine's limitations either; he frequently incorporates live instrumentation to ensure his arrangements aren't monotonous. He makes the kind of appealing, low-key beats that aren't necessarily show-stoppers, but create a great mood that makes them so much fun to listen to. His horn-heavy, lite-bass sound may seem a bit familiar to some underground fans, but his unique artistry and talent set him apart from the other nostalgic MPC-toting producers in today's underground scene.

Ohmega is also impressive on the mic, a likable character who's goodnatured, deep, and often poetic. He advocates social change and tackles relevant topics, also talking about love and music itself. His laidback delivery and content fit his production well, and as a literate and educated MC he can be quite thought-provoking. He employs a long list of guests, most of whom are very good and had me checking for their own material. Lightheaded, Theory Hazit, Jneiro Jalel, and Shape of Broad Minds are deft MCs who also benefit from Ohmega's production.

Ohmega Watts comes through the doors bringing his best beats on this great 2-disc set. However, it seems to fall short of breath taking due to tracks that seem a little lazy overall. The whole album is a positive, breath of fresh air from the northwest MC, but there just seems to be lacking something, and I'm not sure how to pin it down. The second disc is also a refreshing ambient mix of beats, and I wish more Mc's were doing that these days. Watts is a dj as well as an Mc and his skills behind the mic and in the production booth shine through this cool and relevant underground hip hop album.
