The mysterious Overkissed is releasing his debut album on Mood of the Era. The sounds used in creating the 4-track «PORN CUTS» EP are waves of pure delight, each track having its own vibe from beginning to end. The artist uses solid frequencies of analog sound to create a theme that is best described as fun and mischievous. Pamper your inner epicurean with these deep and sensual rhythms.
We have had the pleasure of speaking with Overkissed and this has been the result.
Hi there! Where can we find you right now? How did you start your day?
Hey! I am in Istanbul where is my hometown. I start my day with a nice coffee and directly go to my studio in the morning to see what’s up with projects or start a new one.
When did the idea of starting a project start to take shape? Has it always been something you wanted to do?
As usual, it all started as experimenting with things, finding stuff, shaping them, and being fine about it. I never conceptualized anything on my mind before starting a project. It is generally how the feels go and I stick with it. Try to give it a chance.
How would you define the sound of your latest work? What is the concept behind?
Cheeky chappy! The project started with some stuff I found and shaped it as it goes. I like to bring unity when I try to build more than one-track projects. All 4 tracks have the same two people speaking sensually to each other, and I wanted to keep this sexual tension with the sound as well.
What artists are you interested in these days?
Flying Lotus, Four Tet, Baltra, Dj Seinfeld, Arca, Sega Bodega …
How do you manage to combine such disparate genres? How do you manage to give them unity and harmony? What do they have in common for you?
All of the names are common in making me surprised and excited when I listen to them, other than this I think they have nothing so common genre-wise. But besides being an artist I am also a listener and big fan of music and I enjoy finding and embracing diversity in music so much. So these artists are giving me what I want when I listen to their music.
How would you define your sound?
I can tell it’s groovy yet I still cannot completely put it into any specific word to define I think.
Can you tell us something about your current or future projects?
I have many unfinished projects waiting in the studio, so I am more ready than ever to release new stuff in the coming months.
