Since the beginning, Jim Coles has guided his venture into the world of music via the vehicle of ‘sound design’; mastering crunchy drums, tactile atmospheres, and formidable bass weight. Previous successes in the realms of jungle and footwork, under the guise of both Om Unit and Philip D. Kick, has lent itself nicely to a growing relationship with one of the UK’s best recognized drum and bass labels. There’s an unmistakable energy present in all of Om Unit’s productions and it’s an facet he appears to have drawn on from his teenage years to create ‘Inversions’. With the help of Goldie’s sample archive and the ever heavy Metalheadz team, Jim’s second release on the imprint defines an (apparent) resurgence for the sound of the jungle. Big!“- Will
