Dark Vektor – Back [SD002]

DARK VEKTOR/DJ OVERDOSE/AGNES PE - Back

Second release of Sigourney Discs, a 12” vinyl focused on electro music. Dark Vektor, a veteran of Terrassa’s scene, presents Bac, a work of the raw electro that defines him: robotic voices, evolving basslines and infectious melodies. Side B opens with a remix by Agnès Pe reinventing BACK, and electro, from her own evasive genre, deconstructing the original theme into a collage of vocals and unpredictable rhythms with raving shades. The Dutch producer DJ Overdose signs the last BACK remix. As usual, a personal view on electro, revolving the original theme by sampling it with forcefulness. A blunt rhythm, heavy bassline and again, vicious melodies visiting the origins of the genre.

DJ Overdose – Emulator Armour [LIES159]

Rotterdamn’s ever prolific DJ Overdose delivers his first full length for L.I.E.S., “Emulator Amour”. The well seasoned electro veteran gives us a 13 track master class workout in the genre, exploring all ends and styles. From the classic cowbell electro of “Razor”, to the West Coast boogie of “Bow to the Devourer” or the icy electro bass of “Turns Out Eddy Has No Friends” Overdose leaves no stone unturned. One of the artists most complete works in his vast catalog which ties all his influences together and presents them in true Overdose form. Not to be missed. A true classic from a Dutch master.

DJ Overdose – Hang In There [CRTSX002]

Curtis Electronix delivers the second release. 4 originals from one of the most remarkable and reliable artists in the game, Rotterdam dungeon master DJ Overdose. The A side drops two club ready electro tracks molded with his unique cyberfunk style, punchy analog drums, heavy dystopian basslines and gently spaced out melodies. On the flip side things turn into a murky slow tempo affair. Industrial solid drums and distorted sonic grounds will turn your captivating journey into a dark machine odyssey.

Endfest – Mariahoeve EP [CCR002]

Cobra Club’s second release, Mariahoeve EP comes directly from the magic hands of Endfest. The EP is  supported with amazing remixes by Mark du Mosch and Dj Overdose as Rotterhague. Meeting Mr Magpie on the A-Side starts it of by hitting you hard with a straight up Gloomy beast of an Electro track, the remix by Mark Du mosch takes this track to another dimension stretching it out and adding his much loved vibe to it. On the B-side the dreamy and at moments even poppy Electro jam makes you want to take Bus 53 straight to the sandy shore of Scheveningen. Dj Overdose’s Rotterhague remix flips it into a street version that has more of a link to harbour of Rotterdam than the beach of Scheveningen. Both sides come with a short version of the full length track ”Drank”.

Dj Overdose – Feeding The Fad [UTTU074]

Label-hopping Dutchman DJ Overdose can usually be relied upon to bring the goods. Happily, he’s in fine form on this first solo Unknown to the Unknown appearance since 2015’s fantastic Housejam Freaker. Wisely, he’s decided to steer clear of well-worn retro-futurist cliches (jungle breaks, hardcore revivalism and so on), instead delivering a trio of raw cuts that blend elements of electro, 1990 style European techno and blistering acid house. Flipside “Probably Too Commercial”, a rough-and-ready dose of distorted, high octane electro smothered in alien electronics, is probably the pick of the bunch, though sweaty, stab-tastic opener “Feeding The Fad” – all razor-sharp electronic riffs, wayward drum machine beats and old school vocal samples – also impresses.
