Today we get the first official preview of the song and it sounds like it encompasses both respective artists's styles. We hear UK Garage / House vibes from Oliver fused with a darker agressive edge thanks to the ZD boys.

We’ve been following Omar LinX for years. The rapper was first introduced to us when featured on the Zeds Dead track “Out For Blood” back in 2010. In 2014 we helped premiere most of Omar’s projects like the Road to M.O.R. series with a string of free tracks earlier this year including “Still Tomorrow”, “Interstellar”, “Rise Up”, and others. Today we have the release of M.O.R. (Music Or Revenge), the full length album and his most complete body of work to date.
A couple of weeks back we got to hear the first song on M.O.R. with Dosey Doe, a electronic-charged rap song co-produced by Zeds Dead. Today we get to hear the project in full and you can pick up your own copy through iTunes. The entire album is solid with Omar displaying some of his strongest tracks to date, proving that he is just as capable of singing as well as he can rap. The album features a strong collection of productions including frequent collaborators Zeds Dead on “Scatter Brain”, “Black Rose” and the already previewed “Dosey Doe”. Listen through to the premiere of the full album and pick up your copy through iTunes. Enjoy.

A rapper TSIS has been covering for years, Omar LinX (known for his work on countless Zed's Dead tracks) is back with the first single from his biggest solo release to date. Earlier this year, we were teased with new music like "" and "" from his Road to M.O.R. series. Today, we get a taste of LinX's latest studio album M.O.R – Music or Revenge, set to release independently on December 2nd, with the lead single "Dosey Doe". The song features contrasting sample-powered production with a wobbly twist thanks to his partners-in-crime Zeds Dead and go-to producer Pro Logic. The song properly displays Omar's uniquely dark yet playfully flowing verses that blend with the instrumental just right.
