Bad ass tune. Kind of sounds like a remix of sunchase - ultimate survival. I don't care much for 3 minute songs, but I guess that's the general attention span these days. This one could easily have been 5-6 minutes with another melodic element added after a breakdown.
Favorite track: Darkness Is Older Than Light.
Cosmic Bridge welcomes back Margari’s Kid for his second EP "We Are Ghosts Now".
"We Are Ghosts Now" follows 2017 sellout label debut "Init 1" and two years on and now living in Bristol, Spanish producer José María Moya Sánchez has upped the ante further. Developed, deep and immersive; his unique 170bpm seekers music will continue to draw references to Burial and Instra:Mental / dBridge's Autonomic Drum & Bass but we'll pass you over to label head Om Unit to give you the full low down.
"Across the microcosms of Drum & Bass off shoots there are many sound-a-likes clinging to cliche'd references and rigid tropes; This only leads to a stale, repetitive and self referential culture and is why Margari's Kid supersedes his peers. Standing alone he creates deceptively beautiful and human tracks that while they feel simple, are in fact intricately layered with detail and emotion. These tracks are testament to the rich rewards achieved when a person injects a sense of real humanity into the often overly-technical domain of minimalism. As Margari's Kid, José María Moya Sánchez is is almost entirely leaning out of the pre-existing sphere of Drum & Bass and dancing in the rain on his own. This could be the beginning of something very special, and I think you should really pay attention."
We Are Ghosts Now is released 3rd May 2019 on Cosmic Bridge Records on 12" vinyl and digital formats and features a remix from Label mate Crypticz and artwork from Studio Tape Echo.

Wow. WHAT a release!
So hard to pick a favourite, as they are all so forward-thinking and progressive:
"Shackup" is a gorgeous shower of beat programming and slicing, subtly weaving in those distinctive bongos from the "Apache" break.
But then "Sleeping Dragon" is a thick wave of dub pressure, like a dreamscape journey into another dimension. The half-time vibes are strong on this one, echoing the dubstep/dub techno days of early Scuba in all the best ways.
Purchase on sight! Daniel aka circa96

This album was another one of the truly important moments on Om Unit's path as an artist. He's way transcended being the turntablist master from his 2Tall days, the footwork jungle edit sensation that his Philip D Kick moniker is or other junglistic pigeonholing his Om Unit might have been subjected to. He's grown into his own self (see what I did there?) as an artist and doesn't need to prove anything to anyone anymore. And I for one am always curious what he brings us next <3 Alegria
