Listen: Overmono - Gunk
British brothers bring the vibes on new slice of underground dance floor sounds
Ed & Tom Russell AKA Overmono have been one of the more exciting & consistent club production pairs over the last decade, and thankfully show no signs of slowing down or phoning it in with new cut Gunk.
Fusing elements of house, techno and UK Garage into the undefinable sound referred to as “UK club music” or similar, Gunk is an addictive listen from start to finish with cleverly arranged and manipulated R&B vocal samples candy for the ears.
Gunk is the first single from their forthcoming Cash Romantic EP, which if the single is anything to go by is gonna be an absolute corker. Of the EP, the duo say: "We found this box of old tapes we’d recorded when we were kids where we’d basically try and mashup old records of our parents with whatever records we were buying at the time. Gerry Rafferty mixed with London acid techno, Dr. Hook mixed with old weirdo trance tracks, and that sort of thing.
The tapes are a proper mess but there was always something about trying to get two totally different worlds to collide that stuck with us. After listening to some of these old tapes, we wrote this record and realised our heads are still pretty much in the same space as when we were kids.”
I reallllyyy want to hear those tapes…
