Release Date:05/06/2016;Notes:Limited vinyl LP pressing. Lost Stories is a collection of 18 beats from the archives of English producer Jim Coles, best known today as Om Unit, and released by Justin "Kutmah" McNulty's IZWID label. The album is both a portrait of the artist as a young man, and the completion of a circle, 10 years in the making, that stretches from London to Los Angeles. Before he became Om Unit, Coles was working under the name 2Tall. Throughout the 2000s he lived in and around London, lodging in various smoky flats where he would set up an always shifting home studio. Days were spent studying music, meditating, and learning the ropes of electronic music production while also honing sharp turntablist skills. Between 2005 and 2008, Coles made a lot of beats, part and parcel of his artistic growth. Lost Stories collects eighteen of the best, unearthed from old hard drives and Cubase sessions and never heard until now. Influence came from American labels such as Plug Research, Ghostly International, Poobah, and Stones Throw where a new generation of artists worked in a middle ground between hiphop and electronic, a place of infinite possibilities. The album shows a maturing 2Tall sound while sketching out the outlines of what would become Om Unit. Featuring artwork by Kutmah, it captures a moment in time when experimentation mattered above all else, when possibilities felt abundant, and when a beat could be a doorway into infinity. And it also reminds us that you must remember where you came from in order to understand where you're going.;Track List:1. Test;2. Industry Chant;3. Rolstrom Syndrome;4. Timeless World;5.
