Om Unit – “The Red Curtain”

Om Unit is an artist I’m surprised I’ve not featured on DAD before. He’s an artist that fits in the same conversation as an Addison Groove or Machinedrum, straddling a huge array of genres while maintaining this core “sound.” He’s the kind of producer who can drop a massive single on Metalheadz in 2013, after spending time as Philip K Dick, refixing past jungle classics as new school footwork tunes. The last three years of output as Om Unit have been a whirlwind of creativity, culminating in the release of his fourth studio album, Threads, which drops on October 28. While that project boasts 15 tunes, this track “The Red Curtain” was a discarded gem that Mixmag ended up giving away for free, and it feels like the perfect electronic fall treat. Proper “late-night stroll through a misty back alley with only your headphones and a pea coat to keep you sane” music.
