When I hear 'Overdrive' I tend to think of distortion, and Beatdrop delivers some of that, but the raison detre of this mix is clearly a heads-on techno-industrial groove with a plethora of synth textures, both analog and digital. In fact, you could almost use this mix, which covers the meandering, chromatic Thunderblade / Super Thunderblade score nicely, as a textbook example of digital vs. analog timbres. There's some percussive, digital synths running arpeggios, a biting, gliding analog solo synth that is very, very juicy, and deep, distorted bass that's downright rude (but in a great way). Actually, the bassline deserves special mention - I love what Beatdrop's done with it, it really forms a solid foundation for the track. Interesting decision to bathe this track in a lot of reverb, which at times actually drowns out some of the sonic trickery and special attention Beatdrop obviously paid on this one. In general, the section from 1'28", which has a great rising filtered percussion bit and really gets a vibe going till we break for a digital compu-synth fugue at 2'34", kicks some booty. The afforementioned lead is the perfect sound for the track, as it rises above the mix and cuts throughout it, and does so on both sides of the mix with some tasty stereo action going on. In general, I would have liked a little less reverb, but that's only because I was so interested in hearing all of the juice Beatdrop had flowin' underneath the hood of this puppy. Very well-constructed, technical mix, with discrete sections that each have at least one salient characteristic that makes them memorable and enjoyable. Highly recommended.
