The Singles of Omega 3 - ‘Lost @ Sea’ debut artist album are being released on Tinrib Digital as MP3s...
6th and final single release is RIBD014 - 'Wired Out'
5th release is RIBD013 - 'Manta 3' & 'The Squeeze'
4th release is RIBD012 - 'Smokescreen' & 'Hammered Time'
Omega 3 - Smokescreen & Hammered Time/ Tinrib Digital
We've been missing a good old fashioned rave-up on these pages for a while. It's either gone tech, trancey or quite simply gash - few of the new bredd of producers have the quality to match the legendary hard NRG producers from a few years back. Fortunately the old sea dog Captain Tinrib returns here with Kiwi lads Scuba Steve and Butcher Bpy under their collective name Omega 3 guise for an uncompromising, unstoppable and essential release. 'Smoke Screen' raises the roof with energetic, staccato riffs and uplifting key changes, while 'Hammered Time' ramps up energy levels for an acid an Hoover- Fuelled romp with more than a passing nod to the Captain's classic remix. (DJ Mag 5 Star Release Of The Month!)
3rd release is RIBD010 - 'Fishy Situations' & 'Farkin' Oldskool'
Omega 3 - Fishy Situations / Tinrib Digital
The characters behind Omega 3 are New Zealand-based Captain Tinrib,
Butcherboy and Steve Arnold. ‘Fishy Situations’ is a spun-out slab of raw NRG that somehow manages to slip in some bizarre panpipe sounding organ riffs. Don’t expect any frilly edges to ‘Farking Oldskool’ mind, as The Captain gets back to his scintillating and savage best with an unstoppable onslaught of rave stabs, screaming 303s and general dancefloor mayhem. DJ Mag.
'Fishy Situations' has been dubbed Andy Farley's Tune Of The Year @ This Year's Hard Dance awards. 'The tune which really defined the year for me is Omega 3's Fishy Situations, a mean slab of full on energy with an outstanding uplifting punchy riff at the breakdown.'
2nd release is RIBD007 - 'What We Waiting 4?' & 'The Gateway'
Omega 3 - What We Waiting 4? / Tinrib Digital
Stowing away onboard the latest Captain Tinrib voyage are collaborators Steve Arnold and Butcher Boy. ‘What You Waiting For’ kicks off with a razor sharp old skool hard house groove, stepping up into familiar Tinrib territory with the addition of savage synth swells before sweeping into euphoric hard trance riffs for the finale. Could that be Gwen Stefani on guest vocals? It sounds a bit fishy to me... but is well worth sailing the Seven Seas to get hold of a copy for dancefloor reaction alone.
1st release is RIBD006 - 'We Can Fly' & 'Subsonic'
Omega 3 - We Can Fly/ Tinrib Digital
Captain Tinrib makes a timely appearance on Vicious Circle while he tours Europe over the summer months, with the breakneck beats and fierce 303s of ‘Subsonic’ just edging this hard trance double-A showdown.
Tis a journey 'cross the broad sides of them there many a Hard Dance Music boat of today, the full spectrum of 15 years at sail, voyaging from the euphoria of trance thru to the pounding hard sounds of the end of the finest battle of the fittest at 155bpm with our ships hooverwhores revealed to the full.

Omega 3 are, Dale Fairbairn (Butcher Boy,) Steve Arnold NZ (Scuba Steve - not the UK variety!,) and our worthy old swashbucklin’ seadog, Captain Tinrib.
Them there local natives decided to give him there Cap’n a run and create a release with the old sailor. This release continued on to two and they all rubbed themselves down with some of that fishy oil stuff......... and Omega 3 was born. Try it, its good for you!
‘We be better not mess about ‘ere...’ the skipper advised, ‘We now be in New Zealand we do, and how about we venture into the unknown, create a whole album, put it in the ships log, before they all be cursed and Lost @ Sea forever?,’ the mad sea dog barked.....

'Manta 3' - (The slippery 'ol sea fish rises from the depths once more with a full 10 minute non cuttable Master!)
'Smokescreen' - (Our secret we won't let from below deck yet! The secret weapon!)
'Wired Out' - (Drugged and poisoned. Our crew won't go down. We is up but not taken. Wired but never out!)
'Hammered Time' - (MC On deck.... Shout 'em to the ground..)
'The Squeeze' - (The turn of the tide takes you thru this moody ride!)

What be your weapon for swashbucklin use, mine be me cutlass. Arrrrggghhhh.
DJ Andy Farley (Blue Cubed/ Red Management):
“Omega 3, a name you can’t have failed to notice if you’re an avid clubber on the hard scene. No I’m talking about cod liver oil, I’m talking about the trio from Christchurch who have been putting out the best and biggest uplifting hard nrg tracks over the past year. What better then than to have an album of all their material. Cue Omega 3 Lost @ Sea continuously mixed by Captain Tinrib himself. Eleven tracks in all, and all of which are currently on the playlists of djs such as Paul Glazby, Ben Stevens, Justin Bourne, Jp & Jukesy and myself to name just a few. Kicking off with the two tracks already signed to Vicious Circle, We Can Fly & Subsonic, you’re taken on a journey through to the amazing Fishy Situations currently my most asked after tune, a remix of the Captain’s Manta, to finish with Farkin’ Oldskool, another tune that has I’ve been hammering for the past six months or so. Look out for the launch of their Carbon Recordings imprint coming soon also, with the remix of Manta 3 kicking things off. Omega 3 – good for your health…..most definitely”
DJ Paul Glazby (Vicious Circle UK):
Absolutely awesome CD – Euphoric & Hard, like Tiesto with cast iron balls!!!!
DJ Steve Hill (Massif Labels & DJs Australia):
"I'm loving this album... it's currently on full volume in my studio! More please!"
DJ Justin Bourne (Short Circuit Records UK):
Wow! Is the first thought that springs to mind after listening to this awesome compilation from our oily boys Omega 3.
NRG/Hard House pioneer Captain Tinrib and his new shipmates Steve and Dale serve up some delicious beats of the more Hard Dance/Trance variety.
Lost At Sea includes monster tracks like Hammered Time and the stunning Fishy Situations, I’ve used both in a live DJ set for a forthcoming Tidy compilation and I’ve been playing others such as Smokescreen, Wired Out and the update of the classic Manta in most of my sets.
The biggest labels in our scene Vicious Circle and Tidy have been snapping up the tracks for release and you can see why with this display of musical genius.
With Omega 3 on the pulse our scene has a healthy future.
