Video: Om Unit "The Silence"
- Words: Chris Kokiousis
London producer Om Unit (a.k.a. Jim Coles) dabbles in jungle, footwork, and assorted bass-centric styles, and after sharing an off-album cut from his upcoming debut LP, Threads (out on October 28 via Civil), the artist has shared a hypnotic music video for one of its tracks. Created by Tim Fox, "The Silence"'s cinematic, computer-generated visuals detail an astronaut's journey through foreign, inexplicable worlds. Featuring vocals from Jinadu—who also plays a starring role in the astronaut exosuit—the soaring R&B of Om Unit's production pairs well with its tonal flickers of jungle and classic dubstep.
