From the opening bassline and syncopated snares, you know that “A Request” is gonna get backfields in motion. Ohmega Watts spits his vigorous verbals over a pure feel-good funk track laid down by his band Lightheaded. On the extra smooth “Illuminate,” Watts is joined by fellow Pacific Northwest-siders Lifesavas, and on the midtempo “Wind It Up,” Ohmega takes a break and lets his band work out the soulful keys and bass grooves.
