In this series, Selections, we invite DJs, producers and label heads to dig into their digital crates and share the contents of their Bandcamp collections. While hearing new music played out by your favourite selectors has been put on hold as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s never been easier, or more important, to support the artists and imprints releasing tracks, albums, EPs and comps in the midst of all the madness. In lieu of opportunities to discover new records on the dancefloor, Selections will give you the chance to nab sounds from the crates of tastemakers, and support the people behind them while you’re at it. Win-win, right?
This week, as he marks the release of his new album ‘Acid Dub Studies’, Bristol’s Om Unit digs deep for bass, breaks and space, sharing cuts from Coldtron, Impey, The Bug, Al Wootton, and more. The Cosmic Bridge don’s Selections are as varied as his own sound, which has over the years stretched across the spectrum of drum & bass into spheres of hip-hop, dubstep, footwork and beyond.
‘Acid Dub Studies’ finds Om Unit venturing into new territory once more, concocting a hypnotic fusion of dub reggae and 303 acid goodness. An adventure into murky sonic fog and spaced-out rhythms, it’s a deep, atmospheric collection you’ll find yourself nestling into again and again. Smoke-doused chill out room vibes set to the nines. You can check it out here.
