Fraternal techno

Overmono is a project from brothers Tom and Ed Russell, also known on the international electronic circuit as producers Tessela and Truss. Each of them has already defined their own sound identity individually, however united they have created a two headed, four-handed monster that has begun to send shockwaves throughout the industry. They have just signed to the prestigious UK label XL, releasing their first EP, "Arla", which demonstrates their enormous passion for techno, followed by "Water The Planets", a 24 minute mix featuring several of their own unreleased tracks, confirming the quality and depth of their work. Both brothers have assimilated the influences from their formative years (rave, 90's electronic music) to create a robust and powerful, penetrating and sophisticated sound. Until recently, their respective styles were close but still apart: Tessela moved in the realm of bass music (with releases on R&S, Punch Drunk and his own label Poly Kicks); and Truss followed a more industrial sound characterized by labels such as Perc Trax, on which he has released several albums. Techno is the mother tongue that has reunited the siblings after previously releasing material together in 2012 under the pseudonym TR\\ER, to critical success. In 2017 they will announce new material, which we will be able to listen (and dance) to at their SonarLab show.
