OM UNIT (UK)
Friday 05.07.13 - 15:30 - Apollo
British dj and producer Jim Coles thrives on the tangled landscape of electronic music. Genre labels only supply a vague contour here. The bass music of Om Unit draws on sources such as dubstep, instrumental hip hop and jungle. The latter was the take-off back in the beginning when Coles got into electronic music as a teenager. Today, he also runs his own record label called Cosmic Bridge. Om Unit is placed on first row among innovators of London’s bass-heavy beats.

Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
