Mahakala - Tomahawk VIP / Blue
Om Unit brings his ‘Mahakala’ triology to a triumphant close with 2 more cuts of upfront breakbeat science.
First up, a VIP of ‘Tomahawk’ (from Mahakala02) taking the already innovative approach of sound design and layering of the original into a pure sound system roller, sounding not unlike a 1995 jump up classic, but with a much more darker, almost technoid edge that will have even a hardened soundboy gritting his teeth.
Following is ‘Blue’, a long-form jazzier piece with melancholic echoes of the past that would have sat well on labels like Nexus/Good Looking in the 90’s, complete with live-sounding and consistently shifting break chops that are striking but inflected with subtlety throughout that are both restless but engaging. Both cuts are sure to do damage on the dance floor and bring this series to close with a bang!
