Om Unit "Shine Your Light"

With his debut full-length on the way later this month via Civil, London producer Om Unit has elected to share a few tracks that—for one reason or another—didn't quite make it onto his forthcoming Threads LP. "Shine Your Light" is one such cut, a well-balanced and bass-loaded production which fills a half-time kick-and-snare pattern with an array of precise percussion loops and some truly gorgeous synth work. For its first half, "Shine Your Light" seems to be in the midst of a constant build-up, then Om Unit slyly relieves the tension, cooling off the rolling production with a new set of chords and some ornate melodies. Before Om Unit's Threads LP officially drops on October 28, a preview of the album can be heard after the jump.
