Om Unit is in no hurry whatsoever on his debut album. The London producer was among the first of his peers to explore the intersection of dubstep, drum'n'bass and electro; now that such hybrids are commonplace, he responds by pushing the tempo ever slower. His house beats sway with wobbly motion, and his hip-hop positively crawls; even drum'n'bass tunes like "Wicker and Pearl" emphasize woozy, half-time rhythms. Synth and sci-fi aficionados will thrill to the glassy, dystopian affect that predominates, while fans of Sampha can find manna in "The Silence," a moody vocal cut featuring Jinadu.
