Review: Om Unit's exceptional third album Self undergoes a series of reappraisals and reconstructions from an array of exciting talent. dBridge teases with a little autonomic charm and his own vocals on "What I Can Be", SKRS (Seekers International) get choppy and tropical with a swathing, murking twist on "Passages" while Sorrow takes Om Unit and Rider Shafique to touching introspective places in a barbed, evocative way that only he knows how. Finally Young Echo affiliates Neek and Jabu slide us into slow motion with the wonderfully sleepy "Tahatan". Less remixes and more brand new chapters; Cosmic Bridge never disappoint.
Review: The singular sounds of Jim Coles make their mark on Library Music as he drops his more typical tempo of around 85 to 70BPM with these cosmic futuristic bass jams. Pensive, slow-burning, laced with otherworldly textures and laden with chasmic dubspace: "Fire Exit" insists with a hypnotic twisted chime loop and shadowy basses groaning underneath and "Dark Vistas" takes us even deeper into the cosmic realms with heady layers of pads and ricochet heartbeat rhythm that envelop your every sense. Remarkable.
