Over the past four years, Om Unit has established himself as one of the most consistent and original artists in the electronic sphere. Based in London, the producer first made his mark with a reworking of Joker’s ‘Digi Design’, getting the blessing of Kode9 for a white label treatment. This quickly led to appearances on Fabric’s ‘Elevator Music’ compilation, All City Records and Plastician’s Terrorhythm imprint with the ‘The Corridor’ EP, Om Unit’s first statement of intent.
The Red Bull Music Academy recognised Om Unit’s originality, dedication and pedigree, selecting him for its 2011 edition in Madrid. The accolade and opportunities offered by the experience fed the producer’s creativity while growing his public standing. DJ appearances increased throughout 2012 and 2013, including a residency in London as part of Tempo Clash (alongside Kutmah, Kidkanevil, Blue Daisy and Offshore), regular European shows and festival spots, a month-long North American tour in August 2012, a tour of Australia and New Zealand later that year and an appearance at Sonar Tokyo in April 2013.
With a solid foundation established through hard work and sticking to his guns amid a dance music scene obsessed with shallow revivals and trends, Om Unit is set to make his boldest statement yet with ‘Threads’, his debut album for Civil Music released in October 2013. Sidestepping the pitfalls of instrumental, dance music long players, ‘Threads’ sees the producer reconcile all his work, influences and interests with vocals appearances from Young Echo’s MC Jabu, legendary urban poet Charlie Dark, Gone The Hero and Jinadu. Since 2010 Om Unit has remixed and collaborated with an extensive list of peers and personal heroes including Mark Pritchard, Danny Breaks, Daedelus, Om’Mas Keith, Fracture, Starkey, Ital Tek, Shigeto, Pixelord, Kromestar, Lorn, Arp101, Stateless, Jehst, Sweatson Klank, Illum Sphere, Adam Freeland, VIVEK and Foreign Beggars. Meanwhile support for his sound has come from Boiler Room, XLR8R, FACT Magazine, Dummy, LuckyMe, Electronic Explorations, Clash Magazine, a cover feature in Computer Music magazine and more.
