Since its inception, RotterHague Records have been pushing the collision of cities and fusion of international electro talent to great effect. Number five in the series shows no sign of this slowing down, as labelhead and purveyor of steely, spirited electronics DJ Overdose returns with a new partner in the Italian producer CEM3340. Whilst the previous release was somewhat conceptual, this one sees a return to a more classic and upbeat, Detroit-inspired hue of electro.
CEM3340 takes control of the A-side, with thundering night-time riding soundscapes full of darting bass lines and undulating synths throughout. DJ Overdose keeps the energy at peak-time levels on the flip with his raw and weaponising approach. A high-energy track that exemplifies his style, the aptly titled ‘I Know You Hear Me’ is full of dizzying samples and jittery beats built to get you moving. In the fitting words of the label, “what else could you want?”
