Boys Noize releases new track ‘Overthrow’ as a free download
German techno producer Boys Noize has released a new track “Overthrow,” complete with a music video accompaniment.
The single begins with an ominous atmosphere, before introducing a vocal sample that anchors the song throughout. When the crescendo creates enough tension, it falls away for the first drop, built around a nasally lead that hovers over the drums, propelling the track forward. In the interest of differentiation, a breakbeat section leads into the second drop. The second time around, the lead is more caustic, giving the track more bounce as it slams the empty space between the snare and kick.
Shot primarily in black and white, the video, directed by Lil Internet and Boys Noize, matches its musical counterpart in terms of tone. The short film is based around conflict, before subverting itself in the final portion with an unexpected twist.
“Overthrow” is available for free download here and watch the video above.
