There are three things you need to know about Vancouver native Elonious‘ “Over Tones EP”:
1. First and foremost, it isn’t for the faint of heart.
2. This isn’t your typical 4 track EP. It’s a full 10 tracks, none of which feel like dead weight.
3. It’s all originals. You won’t find any half-baked edits within 20 miles of this thing.
In what I can best describe as Benga meets Burial, the Over Tones EP is an impressive display of just how much diversity can be found within any sub-genre. I guess you’d classify it as a cross between moombahcore and moombahdeep, but even with 10 tracks there’s no evidence of Elonious sticking to any repetitive formula. “Away In Silk,” my favourite track on this EP is a sultry, ambient number while the title track “Over Tones” contains the grimy progressions which immediately bring UK dubstep to mind.
