What is it with youngsters these days? It sometimes seems like EDM is slowly getting taken over by kids in their teens! Case in point, NiTE. Based in Hamburg, NiTE has been busy at work making beats in his basement ever since the ripe age of 15. His influences include a varied pool of talent, including MSTRKRFT, Justice, and even rapper Wiz Khalifa. Now that he’s grown up a bit, NiTE wants to share his beats with the world, starting with the booty-jolting Overdose.
The thing that immediately caught my attention with Overdose was the intro. I love those lines of synth that lead into the track; most songs just start with a kick or even light snares, but this one hits you almost right from the beginning. The rest of the song is wave after wave, drop after drop, and beat after beat of techno-influenced electro goodness. The Dirty Disco Youth remix is great as well; it’s a lot more dancey, swapping out some of the drops of the original for more colorful and steady-paced progressions. Also attached to this post is a video of one of NiTE’s other hot jams, Blinded (NiTE Remix). Just a little bonus for you electro junkies.
