OVD002 - Dalek One - Witchcraft EP
Already having garnered support from the likes of Mixmag and other vital tastemakers around the globe, Overdue's continued onslaught is led on by none other than the highly talented, US-based artist Dalek One. Keeping the torch brightly lit, the eerie soundscapes and forward-minded arrangements, spellbound within the ‘Witchcraft EP’ serve as a perfect follow-up and yet another example of superb quality.
Going straight for the flip-side, ‘Witchcraft’ lunges straight into a tribal encantation of overdriven tape - rhythms like water luring you towards mammoth bass surges - ecstatically driven forward by bold drums and unparalleled groove. Swaths of low frequencies hitting your every fibre alongside enthralling percussive movements - danger of high impact on sound systems guaranteed. Lowering the needle on the other side, ‘Breakthrough’ does literally that. As it sets off with a rainy storm - industrious drone and thunder - metallic clangs propelling us onward into what turns out to be an absolute destroyer, full-on armageddon kind of banger. Heavily overdriven bass surges kick some sense into you as the off-kilter drums and experimental switch-ups keep you yearning for more. Minimal sound system music executed at it’s finest. Finishing off this highly combustible collection of music, ‘Terror Strike’ leaves no prisoners as its tribal atmosphere baits unsuspecting listeners into a low frequency rapture, showcasing Dalek One’s intricate sound design once again.
