Lady Bee feat Oktavian – OVERDOSE
Combining the vocal prowess and song-writing talents of rising star Oktavian with one of the most exciting new female producers in electronic music, Lady Bee, brand new single ‘Overdose’ comes out today on full international release via TrapNation.
Oktavian’s slick, supple lyrics suck you in from the get-go, while the hitching, clicking, popping rhythms of Lady Bee’s bottom and mid lines weave effortlessly in and out of warm organic piano sections, dripping, lazy segues and delicate, breezy drops.
“We spent a lot of time in the drop, making sure the hook fit the it perfectly, but it is actually the bridge and the vocoded section that’s my favourite part of the track,” said Lady Bee, whose previous releases on the likes of Dim Mak, Spinnin’, Mad Decent and Mixmash have established her as a huge ‘one to watch’ artist over the past 12 months. “It was my first session working with Oktavian, definitely a match made in heaven and we’ll definitely work together again.”
For his part, the LA based Dutch writer, who’s worked with Mickey Valen, The Him, Sam Calver and more and can count two Hype Machine #1s in the same week, felt the chemistry just as strongly. “I was instantly sold on the power of the beat. I’m super happy to be able to work on a track with Lady Bee, she’s so talented!”
Perfectly encapsulating that sun-soaked vibe, ‘Overdose’ is essential listening for those 2017 summer time playlists and afternoon sessions.
