Song of the Day: Overdoz “Last Kiss”
“Last Kiss” by Overdoz was my 2015 summer banger. And as a DJ that still believes in breaking records, I slipped this into as many sets as I could and got my evangelist on every time someone approached the booth to ask about it. It got a lot of run in the vehicle too, as this is definitely a ride out jam. There’s so much to savor here. Pharrell on the beat with an uptempo wink and nod to the g-funk of the quartet’s Los Angeles home. Four emcees with distinct styles in an era where rap groups are near extinct. And in the mold of fellow Angeleno rap quartet The Pharcyde, the four emcees of Overdoz don’t take themselves very seriously. And then there’s the madcap (and slightly NSFW) video, which evokes some other classic west coast house party videos.
