Subwayz Selectionz 2014 11 Om Unit

My Top 30 Albums Of The Year

11. Om Unit: Inversion (Metalheadz)
  1. Touching Down
  2. The War
  3. The Crossing
  4. Layers
  5. Bardo Realms
  6. Understand
  7. Parallel
  8. Mystic

Jim Coles has been quoted in quite a few reviews as saying that Inversion was "A nod to the sound of my teenage self." You only have to listen this album and it's quite apparent that not only is this album is a homage to the Metalheadz sound, in some ways it's an upgrade. There's a rich mixture of the trademark rolling breaks, dark basslines and vocal samples, which is formulated and refined, which for me is a very welcome reconstruction from within an epic drum n bass dynasty.

My Standout Track: Understand
