Threads is the debut album from London producer Nagual - Om Unit - Threads Unit. Across its fifteen tracks Threads articulates Om Unit's musical journey from his beginnings to the present. It references his hip hop background, in the swung out, hypnotic headnod of 'Wall of Light' and the positive message of 'Just Sayin'', a collaboration with the mysterious Gone The Hero, who will be stepping out of the shadows on Jneiro Jarel's Label Who imprint inand touches on the music that has impacted him in recent years such as dubstep, the bassweight of which anchors the album.
Dubstep's influence is most obvious in the eyes-down roller 'Nagual' and the deeply emotive 'The Silence' featuring vocalist Nagual - Om Unit - Threads. There are also hints of slow-mo house's chug, a sound Coles first experimented with upon taking the Om Unit name.
It's this slow groove that drives the spellbinding 'Patients' featuring Young Echo's MC Jabu, who gives life to the beat with poetic raps, and it's also central to the reworking of 'The Corridor', a track from the first Om Unit release.
Here Coles slows the original's key elements down even further while managing to keep all the slow moving, hypnotic magic of the original. Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, the album is grounded in Coles' Nagual - Om Unit - Threads roots, a relationship that has driven much of his recent output and DJ work.
Here it takes on its most refined form yet, equally apparent throughout but obviously manifested on the most dancefloor friendly tracks: 'Jaguar', 'Wicker and Pearl' and 'Governer's Bay'. These three tracks close the album but not before one more parting shot, the deeply meaningful 'The Road' featuring London's urban poet, and legend, Charlie Dark. Tracklist: 1. Folding Shadows 2. The Silence feat. Jinadu 3. Healing Rain 4. Jus Sayin' feat.

Nov 15, · As poster boys go, Jim “Om Unit” Coles is a fairly humble one. No cult of personality or mysterious anonymity, no great claims or gimmicks. His music is not especially innovative, nor even that distinctive — in his own words, his aim has been “to make beats that were on a par with what I was listening to” — and yet in certain circles, this debut album Threads was among the most eagerly /5.
