The Overlords are Rune Bendixen [aka Sergei Dong] (vocals) and Ian Johansson [aka Ian Ion, also know as part of Koxbox & Psychopod], true electronic music pioneers. Thier tracks Sundown and God’s Eye on Goa can be considered in some sense to be the first two trance tracks ever done and in many ways started the genre we today know as Psy-Trance & Goa Trance and have inspired a lot of people in the scene.
Now the Overlords are back, as their back catalogue will be remastered and re-released by Universal music. The Danish electronic music veterans will also release some new remixes and will return to perform live!
Some of their tracks got remixed by some of the leading psytrance artists around, including Liquid Soul, X-Dream, Ticon, Gaudium, Orion, Deedrah and many more, and these are going to be released on Iboga Records soon.
