[PREMIERE] Rude Operator delivers “Broken Sky” on Om Unit’s latest Cosmic Bridge compilation
It’s always a treat when we’re blessed with new material from Om Unit‘s Bristol-based Cosmic Bridge imprint. This label has led the charge in the exploration of ethereal soundscapes, dubwise textures, jungle breaks, and autonomic beat structures at 160/170 bpm, and with a roster sporting names like Danny Scrilla, DJ Madd, Moresounds, Kromestar, and TMSV, it’s no wonder that their various artist compilation series “Cosmology” has become a beacon of originality in the uptempo bass music scene. Fresh off a North American tour featuring several of the above names (and of course, the Cosmic leader Om Unit), the label is set to release their latest highly anticipated offering “Cosmology: Dark Matter” next week.
Today’s premiere from the compilation comes to us from Washington, DC’s Rude Operator in the form of the spellbindingly percussive “Broken Sky.” Complete with haunting ragga dread vocals, strong jungle and footwork influences, and a tasteful and understated rhythmic flow, this one is Cosmic Bridge material through and through. Peep it below, check out the full tracklist for the release, and make sure to pre-order the full release (that vinyl package is lookin’ pretty!) before it’s set free into the depths of the internet on Friday, September 6th.
