Overlook - Everything Counts [Narratives 007] by Overlook. published on 2014/01/27 21:16:59 +0000 Narratives Music fires into 2014 by welcoming back the artist Overlook for his first full single on the label. Overlook’s first foray on Narratives delivered the cold edges of ‘Three Shards’ last year, a track which gained support across the 170bpm spectrum and numerous Single of the Month commendations. This release sees the sought after producer weaving his craft over a double A side, suitably showing the versatility and contrast of his talent. The first piece ‘False’, opens with strings drenched in tones of bereft emotion, sounds kissed by images and memories. The chords find matrimony with drums sent back from the future and a driving low end that relentlessly dances underneath. Twisting beats and bass trickery embraced by musicality and emotion, ‘False’ has found its way in to the peak time DJ sets of Goldie while similarly slipping into more ethereal and subdued palettes; it exudes the sound of Narratives. ‘Everything Counts’ offers a completely contrasting stance. Drum machine hits and a depth of bubbling basses build foundation for this exploratory piece, its groove building throughout under its waves of claustrophobic immersion. Only half way into the piece is the tension released as relentless bongos join the fray and an energy of tribal and industrial momentum cuts through. Sleazy, reflective and relentless, ‘Everything Counts’, displays a producer uncompromisingly creating his art.
