Jeez where to start with Musk. Although still active musicians, releases from the duo made up of Lennart Döring & Gerald Zollner aren’t so regular these days. (Although there is a potential album on the horizon).
All of their output (that I’m aware of via internet stalking anyway) is absolutely superb. Sitting somewhere just between the disco edit and straight up house, their sound has stacks of personality.
We’ll have to dedicate a full post to the best of Musk’s music at some point soon enough but for now, here’s the moody and brilliant Bitch Stole My Money.
Idle Hands have been a beacon of quality in the Bristol scene for quite a few years now and this tune from Om Unit’s 2016 release is a shining example of the top notch output the label have become known for. Their record store is always a good spot for a nice dig with friendly, knowledgeable staff and the label has provided some quality musical moments over the past while from the likes of Shanti Celeste and Outboxx.
This tune was a favourite from an excellent EP and showed a bit of a different side to Om Unit who is more known in the DnB’ and dubstep scenes. Clocking in at 100 BPM, this is a great set opener or warm up track, and when played up toward the 120 range it can actually be a bit of a weapon. Reminiscent of the deeper shades of house, this is a lovely atmospheric trip that develops beautifully.
Another favourite of mine from Om Unit is this remix of Blocks & Escher, a pulsing, unique take on DnB’ that I found to be really unique and interesting. Big Upz’.
I tend to say this a lot on here, but this genuinely is one of my favourite tunes of all time. Just can not get over how good those strings and that synth line are. This really is the ultimate end of night jam and a tune that I’m not afraid to admit has brought me to tears before. Cheers to Bicep for including it in their legendary Essential Mix.
