Boomkat Product Review:
Inch-tight, minimalist D&B and noirish drumfunk chops from the UVB-76 Music camp
Back on home turf, Overlook diversifies his bonds with the ‘Lost Souls Club EP’, switching up from patented minimal tekkerz to jazzier styles previously unexplored in his catalogue. On a stripped down flex, he comes off like a lost Spirit ace with the ultra spacious, poised pressure of ‘New Dawn Rises’, and toes a fine balance between brooding, rolling momentum and mystic jazz flutes in ‘Midnight Sun’ like some pre-distortion Dillinja.
The bigger surprises are his jazzier numbers, giving the drummer some in the splashy breaks and noirish jazz-fusion touches of the title track nodding to Paradox, while the Source Direct-esque ‘Phantom’ reduces that aesthetic to the leanest 16th note hi-hat and rimshot play cushioned by lurking subs and clad in dark velvet atmospheres.
