OHMEGA WATTS - Producer / MC / DJ

Ohmega Watts' first release was “A Request”, a soulful and DJ-friendly solo 12” 
featuring his group Lightheaded and Quannum Recording Artists The Lifesavas
“A Request” received praise from respected DJs, including Mr. Scruff, Gilles Peterson, Greyboy, and the Los Angeles-based Heavyweight Record Pool. Ohmega Watts' sound was compared to Digital Underground drunkenly colliding with Pete Rock at a high rate of speed.
A record deal with Ubiquity Records was signed shortly after this first release. Ohmega Watts' first solo album, "The Find", was released on Ubiquity in 2005.
Producing since 1997 and MCing since 1993 the Ohmega Watts resume includes tracks produced for Mars Ill on Ill Boogie, for Listener on Mush, plus he’s recorded as Lightheaded for Day By Day Ent, and as Return To Sender on the Piece of The Action compilation. Hailing from Flatbush, Brooklyn, brought up by Jamaican parents Campbell moved to Florida for college and then settled in Portland, Oregon. He is now part of a bustling Northwest independent scene that includes the Lifesavas (who appeared on his debut single), Boom Bap, Soul Plasma, DJ and MC MungXXXtreme, Libretto, Lightheaded and The Blacknotes.
