The latest addition to Toronto’s germinating electronic scene comes in the form of psychedelic beat-core duo OVER. An auspicious fusion of automated drone and futuristic folk, heavily layered with samples and cold percussion, place OVER firmly in the likes of their contemporaries Portishead, Andy Stott, DJ Shadow and Panda Bear. This post-modern hyper-design model embraces the fundamentals of contemporary composition while it eats away at its own outer shell in order to create a new post-industrial stream of consciousness. Every sound exists only to serve this model and to re-expose the historical nuances that have liberated sample-based music. Inspired by broken dreams and broken appliances, OVER may just skip and stutter across your mind and into your dark heart.
