Karoshi is a Japanese term meaning death from overwork. It reflects their love and hate of the 21st century world in equal measure. Karoshi are two brothers Dan Burt & Sam Burt making twisted electronic pop. They seek out the freshest underground vocal talent, then get the best remixers around to put dancefloor spins on their pop tunes.
Karoshi combine the production chops of Justice and Simian Mobile Disco with the songwriting and pop sensibilities of Santogold, Goldfrapp and Hot Chip.
Not Sitting is the debut release coming out on Suitcase August 16th. It’s a story of loving then losing your musical heroes and doing things on your own terms. It’s about independence and the fight to do something fresh.
The single features some stellar and varied remixes. Cassette Jam pull out a nu-disco/electro peak time slammer. Per Qx nails it with a minimal tech house beast. Mr Fogg gives a sublime dub heavy electronica interpretation. Spector lends his dark skills on a distorted electro house rework and Pete Dafeet keeps the sunrise glowing with a classic vocal deep house mix.
