Om Unit "Swimming Dragon"
The considerably prolific London producer known as Om Unit is prepared to drop his latest EP, Transport, on November 28 via the Civil imprint, and has passed along its opening tune, "Swimming Dragon," to serve as the first taste of the forthcoming release. In the past year or two, Om Unit has established himself as a producer who is not afraid to move between genres while still seeming to keep at least one foot firmly placed in UK bass, and this production is no different. Almost unclassifiable except for an all encompassing 'future-music' tag, "Swimming Dragon" folds pieces of electro-house drums, dubstep-appropriate low-end, and the kind of hazy, arp-filled synth clouds that one might expect to find from a West Coast beat head. There are even some Asiatic flute samples buried in there, too.
