Om Unit shares details of new EP for Metalheadz, announces North American tour

London producer Jim Coles a.k.a. Om Unit grew up with Goldie’s Metalheadz label as a huge influence. Now, everything comes full circle with the veteran drum & bass and jungle imprint signing off Coles for his latest release, Inversion. It follows up the artist’s ambitious and celestial Threads LP from last year, but this new EP is strictly in the drum & bass camp, attempting to pay homage to past greats without feeling dated. As Coles describes the new material, it’s “a nod to sound of my teenage self.” Angsty, confused, and covered in acne — just how it should be.

In advance of Inversion, Om Unit is currently touring North America, with a run of dates taking him from Orlando to Oakland through the end of the month. For those who haven’t had the privilege of seeing Coles DJ, you’re in for some cruising jungle, a dash of hardcore breakbeats, and large helpings of bass. It’s the kind of music that beats the shit out of you, but in a good way! Before Inversion drops on November 17, peep the tracklist and tour dates below.
