In just a few years since the release of his first EP, the London ON-based producer Overwerk has become a high in demand composer for international advertising campaigns, lending his original instrumental compositions to the likes of GoPro, Red Bull, Chrysler, Gucci and Prada. It’s easy to see why – the tracks tend to be overwhelmingly cinematic and simultaneously electro-contemporary. New floor-rattling single “Exist” is cut from the same cloth as his previous work and doesn’t disappoint. Epic and orchestral (hard to believe it’s all synthetic!) until the halfway mark, where the gritty, glitchy bass drops hard, a nod to French electro. Not to mention the stunning artwork, and it’s an impressive release. Name your price for the original and extended club mix set on his Bandcamp, and don’t be surprised if you hear the track in a commercial during primetime cable programming.
Overwerk was the winner of the second round of the NCM Vista Music Prize and shared with us his vision for an expansive music video, which might accompany “Exist”. Follow him on Twitter for updates for more, and be sure to vote in the third round of the Prize on Facebook to support other emerging artists. Voting closes June 30.
