British rapper Master Peace kicks off 2021 in a major way with the release of his brand new track, Overdrive – a rousing and anthemic, genre-bending bop that’s guaranteed to strike a chord with music lovers around the world.
Co-written by Peace, along with Gina Kushka and George Reid (who also serves as the songs main producer), the eclectic sounding track finds the risk-taking recording artist in a reflective state of mind, as he looks back at his days as a teenager growing up in London; reminiscing on all of the music he listened to for inspiration then, in the hopes of re-capturing that same vibe of youth and limitless potential now.
“This song represents my younger years and what I used to listen to.” Master Peace says of the track. “It comes from a feeling of wanting to relive my youth again and perhaps do it in a different way.”

“Girl, you’re missing out…”
For the tracks accompanying music video, directed by the uber talented Sahra Zadat, we bare witness to two contrasting sides of Peace’s highly fascinating and effervescent character – that of an energetic and captivating performer, juxtaposed alongside his softer, more introspective side, as a young man, reminiscing and reflecting on his past.
