This weekend sees a night of incredible forward-thinking music from Wavey Tones x Hyponik's party with electronic heavyweights like Egyptian Lover, DJ Stingray, DJ Rashad & DJ Spinn, Brassica, Drums Of Death, South London Ordnance and Om Unit. For an idea of what's to come, the latter who makes experimental electronica released on labels like Civil, recently worked with Machinedrum (one half of Sepalcure) under the collaborative guise of Dream Continuum for a spine-tinglingly catchy EP of heavy rave and breaks influenced sounds out on the inimitable Planet Mu.
Here alongside an exclusive mix from the headliner and legend that is DJ Stingray, we also have words with Mr Unit himself...
...your party trick?
I have double jointed thumbs
...your worst vice?
Picking my nose
...the story behind your name?
Om is the sound of creation, unit is a singular thing or person
... your favourite sound?
...your favourite website/blog?
...your favourite record label(s)?
Very hard to say probably Exit, All City, Planet Mu, Poobah, Deep Medi, Ninja Tune and that kinda stuff.
...to do on a day off?
