Om Unit "Lightgrids"
We can't pinpoint exactly why it's happening, but London is on a serious roll right now. Just go ahead and add Om Unit (who used to operate under the name 2Tall) to the list of camera-shy UK artists making infectiously wonky beats. "Lightgrids" is the a-side to his new 45 on the Irish All-City imprint, which has previously released tunes from like-minded producers like Mike Slott and Hudson Mohawke, and sounds like the kind of sultry retro-futurism that the Nite Funk collaboration might cook up. Om Unit has previously worked with outer-space soul pioneers Dudley Perkins and Georgia Anne Muldrow, so maybe Dam-Funk and Nite Jewel should give him a call.
