Video Premiere: Silent Dust "The Giant (Om Unit Remix)"
- Words: Taylor Fife
On his remix of "The Giant," Om Unit, the man responsible for the well-received final XLR8R podcast of 2011, adds churning bass to the cinematic production originally crafted by UK duo Silent Dust, who self-released the tune back in October. The video is an interesting experiment in visual textures, a darkly hypnotic clip showing sandy images in surprising forms while superimposing various shapes over the grains, with a particular emphasis on the sacred Triforce.
