“I’d also like to say my love for sci-fi/ the paranormal/ the unknown/the out there. Coming up listening to hip hop in the golden era, there were so many styles, so many great and dope lyrical approaches to the art form, but there was always that limit rappers would have.”
“Not saying there weren’t rappers who went beyond the norm but they weren’t as many or weren’t as popular. To me it was a whole world to explore, a whole world waiting to be engaged and it was also a whole world that I was deeply engaged in, for as long as I can remember, I have always been about the unanswered questions about not just my life but existence in general.”
“I always found myself searching for more, not being content with eating sleeping and shitting and I gotta tell ya, when you open the door to that part of the matrix, you never come back, its a maze of wonders, a spectrum of variables, the possibilities are endless,it becomes like an addiction encoded into your DNA, it becomes your biological makeup as u know it and before you know, it applies to everything you do and so naturally, it became part of my art form.”
Your style is ‘Raw & Uncut’. How long did it take you to hone such a skill?…
“It Takes as long as life permits you to be here, to me, being good at something is spawned by being good at being consistent with it. One beautiful thing about hip hop at its best is that it’s not just a musical art form where one writes his best bars and gets in the booth, the culture in itself promotes learning, building, elevating intellectually, its a culture that also promotes the spirit of competition. Hip Hop at its height had mc’s scrambling to know more, to display lyrical superiority in the form of knowledge. there was a time in this game where the more you knew, the more respect and love you got, and learning is a life long process, from the day you are born to the people you meet, learning is constant, the energy of knowledge is infinite, even after you die, people will continue to learn more about you, based on what you learned while alive.”
“Basically, knowledge is the kinda power that is immortal so how did I hone my skill? I lived and learned, and I’m still doing it to this day, the more I know, the more I learn, the more I experience, the sharper my knowledge banks are, the more elevated my work is because its rich in content.”
As a true-hearted artist as you are; what do you make of the ‘new wave’ – as it is? I / some would say there is a drastic lack of – ‘quality control’…. What are your thoughts on this?
“Great question, there are a lot of variables here and a lot of opinions on this matter. I’ve found this one to be touchy for the new generation but some times, you gotta say what you gotta say, my thoughts on this would be better validated by something I learned a few years ago, there was a declassified CIA document that was released to the public which spoke on how the CIA infiltrated Hollywood’s and played a part in the making of some films to gauge the behaviour of the public based on different genres.”
“They also wanted to understand if they could use media to control the general public which brings me to my point, Nothing happening now is a mistake, the more you scan society, the more you realize that people are depending less on their own intellect and primal nature. People these days want their existence dictated to them as opposed to them taking control of their destiny, in fact, dare I say its easier to control the population these days with all the tech, social media etc than it was back in the day, which is actually ironic considering with more technology, they have more power in their hands but sometimes, people are granted power to be enslaved by that power and controlled by it.”
“There are men with ultimate power who have no say and their decisions are more so echoed by shadow heads in the background.”
For Eons the drum and bass scene has been inundated with new, on point artists who have grafted hard helping to shape the scene it is today. Nothing in life is easy – have you ever asked yourself that? Everything must be worked for, fought for, a whole endurance test until the very end devour. Making music is just of this very calibre.
Omega Point’s ongoing talents have grown throughout a scene which is constantly evolving. He has been most fortunate in being able to experience the whole spectrum of the scene, from its old skool root foundations, through to its jungle, to hardcore – right through to the invention of drum and bass music itself. This knowledge that Omega Point holds is most valuable, most valuable indeed. On hearing the unique sound of Omega Point, you can tell that he poses such a passion which in turn is delivered within in skill as a highly talented producer.

Every artist is looking for that ‘golden playout’, whether it be at a high-profile birthday party, or maybe the buzzing club in London or halfway down the other end of the country. Every artist is looking for such a booking. It’s plain to see that with the skill that Omega Point has, it wasn’t long before he was noticed for his sure-fire, well-rounded sounds which he was turning out from the studio. In a world where it’s a first come – first serve basis, Omega Point has been up against some very strong contenders. This, however, is not a completion, it’s just how it is on the street, on the block no less. The cutting-edge sounds in which Omega Point delivers each and every time are second to none.

OMEGA POINT IS ALSO GETTING READY TO FEATURE ON THE EXCLUSIVE VM PODCAST!!!
Welcome to your EXCLUSIVE interview feature! Please introduce yourself to the good people, lets start off how you first got into dance music?
Hi, my name is Albana Abazi and I’m a 23 years young DJ/producer from London, UK. I’ve actually always liked dance music, but I started taking more of an interest in making dance music in 2011 when I was studying music A level. I’m actually really into metal and post-hardcore music. I used to listen to a lot of Electrocore and ‘trance metal’ back when I used to think hearing synths in metal was cool haha.
How and when did you fall in love with Hardcore?
During my A levels, I was into hard trance and trance, but when I went to university in 2013, that was when I really wanted to start making hard dance music. I went to my first rave in 2013 – Frantic atKOKO, it was amazing and I was convinced that I wanted to go to raves more! I looked deeper into harder styles of dance music and was inspired by mainly Happy Hardcore and UK hardcore, I thought this was the limit of hard dance for me! There’s something about these genres that just leave a smile on my face, it’s just so cute! I’ve grown to like some Hardstyle and Hardcore now though!
You have recently played at a Headhunterz event – where was this?
Yeah! This was on the 7th of February at the Ministry of Sound! Such a big, popular venue for hard dance music right?!
Who else rocked the house there for you?
DJ Ravine, from Australia, played in the second largest room, 103, where I also played. Clefheart, from Italy, played after Headhunterzin the main box, Spyroalso played in the loft and there were many other DJs playing all sorts of hard dance music; uptempo, Hardcore etc.
How did the set go?
Welllllllll honestly, the set didn’t last too long as ministry of Sound closed room 103 at 4.30am and not 5 of which I was supposed to finish at. The audience loved what I played in those 10 minutes though! It’s fine though, I’m sure I’ll have other opportunities like this!
Do you produce?
Yes! Unfortunately I have not released any of my own music yet because I don’t think the songs are ready yet! I’m hoping to release some singles this summer though! However, you can actually listen to a few of my tracks in mixes that I’ve released in myMixcloud! (for UK hardcore – look out for the ones with lots of piano parts!)

DJ Rap, a pioneer, committed to this day in the creation and deliverance of drum and bass musical excellence – around the world. With the advancing age of technology, it has made it much easier for the ‘intrepid Dj / producer’ to do ‘his or her thing’. The rise of the ‘CDJ’ saw a slow decline in vinyl, Dj’s mixing on the mighty Technics turntables, as they all moved eloquently with the times – as we all have, to do.
Here we are, in 2019 alive, blessed – aloud and proud! Over the last couple of years, it has been charted that vinyl sales are once again flourishing. Dj Rap was most fortunate in being able to play on the vinyl format, as after all it was where it all started. A skill, an art form that due to technical processes, becomes a more mindful process in the sense of mixing.
DJ RAP SOUND CLOUD:
