Om Unit "Cradle"
This fresh cut of lush, low-slung, and dubby rhythms comes to us off the latest EP by London's Om Unit, entitled The Corridor. DJ Plasticman's Terrorhythm label dropped that five-song release the day before yesterday, and handed over "Cradle" for us to give to you today. The tune fits somewhere between mellower dubstep, Scuba-style techno, and shuffling beat music, and borrows equally from each genre's sound palette—slow, bulbous basslines, textural ambiance, and loads of delayed polyrhythms. You can slap any name you like on it, but we'll just go ahead and call it good electronic music. You can listen to and buy all of The Corridor EP here, including a remix of the title track by Ghostly's Shigeto.
