Om Unit vs Kromestar - Solar Cycle / Merkabah (CBR001) by Cosmic Bridge published on 2014/05/14 15:56:10 +0000 Om Unit vs Kromestar - Solar Cycle / Merkabah (CBR001) 01. Om Unit vs Kromestar - Solar Cycle 02. Merkabah 'Om' the supreme and most sacred syllable, consisting in Sanskrit of the three sounds (a), (u), and (m), representing various fundamental triads and believed to be the spoken essence of the universe. 'Unit' relating to Jim Coles the single entity, founder and label boss of Cosmic Bridge records. Cosmic Bridge is the new label of Om Unit, the London based DJ & Producer and former DMC Champion 2Tall. Striding into 2011, Cosmic Bridge declares it's debut with a killer release in the form of an Om Unit V's Kromestar collaboration. Om Unit says of the label: "I took this collaboration as a green light to start my own imprint for side projects to my own stuff. The name speaks for itself, just have a listen" The collaboration came about when Kromestar heard Om Unit being played on Rinse fm by DJ Jay 5ive, and asked Om Unit for a few beats before eventually exchanging dubs. What started out as a casual exchange of music has culminated into something far more profound, a joint 12" and digital release on Om Unit's newly formed, Cosmic Bridge. With a string of notable releases to date, some of which include the 7" Lightgrids/Lavender (All City), The Timps (Civil Music) and The Corridor EP (Terrorhythm), the refix of Joker's Digidesign (Hyperdub) and Stateless' 'Assassins' (Ninja Tune), not to mention mixes for Shigeto, Pixelord, Take, Kidkanevil, and Naive Machine & whole more besides, it's clear to see Om Unit is hardly work shy. Eager ears could do worse than to watch Cosmic Bridge closely this year.
