Om Unit – RA Podcast #393 12/2013


Jim Coles is no newcomer, but it feels like only recently that he’s found his calling. After years of releasing hip-hop as 2Tall, the London producer gave himself a new identity, Om Unit, in 2010. He put out a series of records that jumped headfirst into the then-splintering dubstep scene, colouring between the lines with funk, electro and drum & bass. Then, as Philip D Kick, he dropped jungle singles that were re-edited in a footwork style, an influential series of bootlegs that laid out the rhythmic science that would become his trademark.

Interesting new school hybrid tuneage by Om Unit. Some oldschoolish flavour and some wonky bits, too. Interview can be found at RA, Tracklist via robynthinks. I wish you all happy holidays!

    On the hybrid tip, try the RA Machine Drum mix as well. Saw Om Unit open for Machine Drum in December, loved it. These guys are really doing interesting stuff in “bass”, coming from the D&B background.
