U.K. electronic duo Overmono are known for their infectious, club-ready sound, informed by their love of hard-edged '90s rave, trance, and breakbeat. It was a style they debuted on 2016's Arla EP and continued to develop on 2017's Arla II and the 2020 EP Everything You Need.
Raised in Wales, siblings Tom and Ed Russell both had successful careers in electronic music before they began collaborating as Overmono -- with Tom known for his hard-edged techno as Truss and Ed for his rave-instilled bass work as Tessela -- although there was a brief time the brothers performed together as the hardware-based techno duo TR//ER. Deciding to reduce the influence of their individual work from the mix, the pair booked five days in an isolated cottage studio in Devon to thrash out ideas and put together tracks for a possible release. Drawing inspiration from their love of classic rave music and early-'90s trance and techno, the duo's unique mix of boundary-pushing electronica caught the ear of pioneering British dance label XL Recordings, which instantly signed the brothers.
