Chilliwack-based artist Elazion has just released Overdose, a wicked catchy mid-tempo summer anthem written in conjunction with Albany, NY-based producer Brent Betit.
Overdose dropped on One Seven Music, a Sony Music-affiliated imprint based in Copenhagen, DE.
Since his popular bootleg of Zhu’s Faded, Elazion has released a steady flow of original cuts on labels like Glorie Generation, Westwood X, G-Mafia, Phunk Junk, and Emengy Deep.
Overdose features an infectious bass line and sports stylish elements of house and funk, but the real ear worm is the vocal performance by Oxford topliner Sam Welch. “I heard the a capella that was sent to me by Sam and I instantly fell in love with it. Right away it was stuck in my head and I could hear the groovy bass line with the ‘dadada’s.’ I wrote the instrumental around the vocal with my buddy Brent and it came together quite fast!”
Describing what it’s like to work with an international label like One Seven Music, Elazion says “One Seven has been really great so far! They have some really awesome playlists, and dealing with the team over email was very smooth and effortless. I hope to release more with them in the future!”
Overdose is available on all major streaming services. If you’re looking for more music from Elazion, check out the recently released Lost EP. You can find Brent Betit’s music catalog here and Sam Welch’s catalog here.
