Detroit resident and essential house music lifeforce Omar-S has a new EP! Even better, thanks to the nice folks at Scion A/V, it’s five tracks of completely free music ranging from dark dancefloor winding menaces to classical Detroit house homage.

If you’ve been sleepin on Omar-S’s latest releases -like, for example, the A-side only vinyl sleeper smash “Here’s Your Trance, Now Dance!” or the accompanying and difficult to track down Shadow Ray remix (his collaborator on the “Oasis” project, rumor is that this remix was apparently commissioned from Shadow Ray while he was in jail as part of a “rehabilitation effort” – details on that remain shady though). Also in the package for good measure, we have a collaboration with house God Theo Parrish, and news of a forthcoming album, which will be the first since 2005. Praise Omar.

The third mixtape of the Adrian Recordings Advent Sunday Mixtape Series 2010 comes from Brooklyn based producer Pocketknife. Perfect sunday listening while you’re sipping mulled wine and eating gingerbread cookies. Check out what our friends at Adrian Recordings had to say about the mix:

“We are proud to present Pocketknife. Earlier this year this disco star did a brilliant remix of the This Is Head track “0007” and now he has picked and mixed together his blend of favorites from the Adrian Recordings catalogue 2010.

Pocketknife was previously partner with Theo Parrish and now he throws down his own disco jams as well as own unique remixes. Exploding in blogs with remixes from such different stars as Arthur Russell, Liars, Lykke Li, Sufjan Stevens, Joanna Newsom, Nico, Yeasayer and Alicia Keys. And our own favorite recreation of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m on Fire”. In 2011 we’re looking forward to his upcoming release on label !K7.”
