The Bristol bass music visionary deconstructs the hardcore continuum, with music from the fringes of modern jungle and experimental ambient.
Om Unit is a producer and DJ based in Bristol whose work explores the tempos and rhythms of the hardcore continuum, from the frenetic tension of footwork to the emotive spatiality of ambient. With a recent focus on footwork, jungle and 170BPM, he’s released music on labels such as Metalheadz, Idle Hands and Civil Music. Om Unit’s expansive sound takes influences from techno, ambient and experimental downtempo. With his own label, Cosmic Bridge, he features artists like J:Kenzo, Kromestar and DJ Distance, and the emerging Scottish grime producer Proc Fiskal. In 2017, Om Unit releases his third solo album, Self, on Cosmic Bridge, a series of skeletal and atmospheric beats that further deconstruct this sonic identity.
