Orangewarrior – Cosmic Bridge & Om Unit Mix
Every now & then I (rather selfishly) like to indulge in a “megamix” of sorts where I can put a load of tracks by a specific artist in one sequence and just get lost in the music.. In the past, there’s been mixes of Acen, Noisia, Lindstrom & Prins Thomas, and another was for Four Tet.
This latest effort is a love letter to the creative work of one Jim Coles, aka Om Unit.
For just over a year now, Om Unit & dubstep stalwart Kromestar have been co-running the London-based record label Cosmic Bridge and after a mere 6 releases, it’s rapidly shaping up to be one of my favourites, consistently knocking out bass-heavy music that lives in an undefined space somewhere between dubstep, juke/footwurk and drum & bass.
Om Unit himself is no slouch and is responsible for the Phillip D Kick jungle/juke mashups that surfaced last year, a plethora of remixes, and also collaborative work with Machinedrum under the guise of “Dream Continuum.” Going further back in time, he was a DMC finalist scratch dj under the name of 2Tall, producing a downtempo lp for the short-lived Needlework label. Regular visitors to the site may care to notice that his tracks have featured quite regularly in my mixes of the last couple of years.
Basically, my point is, he’s bloody talented, he makes good tunes, and you should listen to his stuff. Ok?
This mix is a collection of his remixes, solo work, and tunes by the other artists on Cosmic Bridge records.
You should buy them all, and indeed you can do so here: Cosmic Bridge Records .
So, sit back, relax, and enjoy the sounds of Om Unit and Cosmic Bridge..
