Om Unit: Submerged 12″ EP

Om Unit continues to expand and refine his singular fusion of multiple genres on this latest EP. Atmospheric jungle breaks, insistent footwork bass, and dub fx are all perfectly tuned into each other, building up tension and pressure which is sustained throughout these 6 tracks. “Runes” is some seriously futuristic mystical dub, while “Patterning” and “Long Summer” have tighter, more complex rhythms, reminiscent of mid-’90s intelligent jungle but with a tiny bit of a half-time bounce in them. The stormier “Peninsula” tips closer to darkness, but there’s enough light surging through that the music remains positively uplifting. Fantastic work, as always.
