Acid Dub Studies by Om Unit
When Dub and Acid meet, tremendous volcanic explosions sometimes occur
Who can argue with this: Dub and Acid are fine bedfellows? Yeah, no one! Think of the emotion-packed, druggy, dripping-with-melody and deeply beguiling music of Tin Man, Deadbeat, Recondite and Adrian Sherwood and it's obvious that Om Unit's new Acid Dub Studies album is a proper peer. British electronic producer Jim Coles, revisits his early Dub-influenced work, playfully experimenting with his TB-303 and appropriating the dirtiest Dub bass lines (is Circles a loose cover version of Kraftwerk's The Model you may ask?) but the results are like classics: at once comforting, effortless and familiar. Essential.
