The Overview Effect

The Overview Effect is a socially conscious psychedelic hip-hop album by MC-producer duo Jermiside & The Expert that fuses 1960s psych-rock samples with beats from hip-hop's golden age.

The title refers to a cognitive shift in awareness reported by astronauts upon seeing the Earth as a pale blue dot, and the overwhelming urge they feel to protect it. 

As the music is a vast musical collage of psychedelic soundscapes, the artwork reflects this through surreal collage art that evokes the lyrical themes of crime, war, greed, racism, social ecology, technology and love.

Artwork provided include vinyl packaging design, single art, promotional material and a limited edition print to accompany the album release.
