Overcast Sound exist more in the paid realm of the music world than the free world that I wander in, so being familiar with this Canadian duo is not something I am. Add to that they label themselves as “deep techno”, then I am even at a greater loss.
basic_sounds, who have been putting out some tremendous releases in 2010, continue to do so with Overcast Sound’s Holding Pattern, a three-song dub EP of unyielding exquisiteness. “At Dawn” gently introduces the listener to the subtle field recordings and beats, but it’s the synths that drip and sooth. The EP continues with “Holding Pattern” and “Proceed to the Exits” leaving the listener saturated in the goodness of the dub.
