Didn't think that the off-the-walls nature of bass music could find its way into a sublime indie summer track like "Overdose" from Maudlin Strangers? Think again. While some artists will take a track, throw home 808's and a set of hi-hats on it and call it a "remix," Bass Science goes full force on the original, flipping the song from the Agoura Hills native on its head and turning it into a bass pleasing jam. What I dig most about this take on the song is its bolstering drop; as soon as it arrives, it makes its presence known in a take-no-prisoners fashion. Though the two styles are radically different, Strangers and Science meet at an interesting half way point. It's just enough of an electronic and indie blend, as Science keeps enough of the original to give indie and electronic fans something to get down with, regardless if you're on a late evening drive or at your favourite festival. It might not be Friday night yet, but that doesn't mean you can't hit play down below, let your hair down and enjoy this one.
