"Overload" is a song by English rapper/producer Dot Rotten. The song was first released on 3 June 2012 in the United Kingdom as the third single from the rapper's upcoming debut studio album, Voices in My Head.[1] The track heavily samples "Children"—the number-two hit from trance composer Robert Miles; and credits producers TMS as the featured artist. "Overload" was selected as BBC Radio 1 DJ Zane Lowe's Hottest Record in the World on 26 March 2012.[2] The track debuted at number fifteen on the UK Singles Chart, marking Rotten's third appearance—also the highest peaking of these—after "Teardrop" (#24, 2011) and "Are You Not Entertained?" (#53, 2012).

Music video[edit]

A music video to accompany the release of "Overload" was first released onto YouTube on 8 May 2012 at a total length of three minutes and nine seconds.[3]

Sections of the video were filmed in the Snowdonia National Park, around the Ogwen Valley and Nant Ffrancon area.
