Omiqron6 – “Om Is On”

Mexican ambient/experimental artist Omiqron6 has a sound that reminds of an ancient tribal dance, at least on new track “Om is On” — where a mysterious key-laden looping and developing percussion becomes complemented by woodwinds, within a melody that is at times gorgeous and unsettling. It twinkles along, aided by ghoulish samples on occasion. It’s a track of Omiqron6’s new album A New Kind of Lightning, a journey of a listen that can be streamed in full on Soundcloud.
