Keeping up the hectic release schedule of strictly one (1) record per year, Om Unit & Sam Binga are proud to present the final instalment in the Trans-Continental Trilogy: the Trans Siberian EP, on their very own BUNIT imprint.
Following on from the Trans Atlantic and Trans Pacific, the Trans Siberian EP showcases a further four innovative yet dancefloor-ready takes on uptempo dance music, ranging from the quarter-speed modular depth of 'Baby Steps', through the baile funk-meets-acid intensity of '2000 Dogs', the ghettotech-jungle mania of 'Up & Under', all the way to the unique grime-boogie-dub hybrid (!!!) that is 'Optimist Prime'.
Built using an equal mix of lo-fi and cutting-edge production techniques, the Trans Siberian EP continues the progression of the BUNIT sound, referencing themes and approaches that have subconsciously threaded their way throughout the trilogy while still sounding nothing like any of the pair's other releases.
Available direct from the artists on vinyl and digital via bandcamp, vinyl only copies will be appearing in the finer record shops around the world via Unearthed Sounds distribution.
Where next for BUNIT? As of right now, we have no idea - but the journey will definitely be worth taking.

F*ck me Moresounds drops an absolute bomb with this track. Listen to this loud through a decent sound system and you’ll get it. Quality. As is this whole album through and through. No bad tunes. Rock solid from front to back. Masaq DJ (Dave King)

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
