Octo Octa (live) [100% Silk]
For less than 2 years 100% Silk have been releasing some of the most enigmatic, enchanting House and Electronica records around.
Straight outta LA, 100% SILK, a boutique label that bounces glitz with ghetto and warped basement aesthetics with boogie antics. Make no mistake, there's been plenty of controversy around Silk—the sub-label of agenda-defining underground label Not Not Fun—since it opened for business last year. Broadly speaking, the label's output reflects and charts a particular trend of the la
st two years: that of artists from the DIY/noise underground, many formerly affiliated with Not Not Fun, experimenting with dance music forms. To some this reeks of hipster opportunism; to others it's an intriguing new chapter in dance music's long history of miscegenation.
Octo Octa from Brooklyn draws from NY's 90's House/Rave sound with relentless aplomb. A Mitsubishi stamped sound that tingles to the bone.... but don't take it from me.... - check this utterly hilarious eccied gibberish written about him...
Octo Octa’s the new search engine; he’s connected and connective, the feeling fish to your computer chips. The dancefloor has been pulled out from under you, now you’re free to float in the atmosphere – warm and womby, roused and roomy, a tear-jerk body-work. Poise yourself for poignancy. He’s TRYING to break your heart.
The Octo Octa rhythm IS feeling, especially when yr feelings are hurt. From letdown to getdown, when melancholia’s callin ya, Octo Octa can break through. Emotions run high, and these cuts cut through somehow. It’s dance therapy – Docta Octa is in, checking yr pulse, charging by the half hour. Feelin’ blue can be electric. If yr here, now, you haven’t missed a thing. For the ball drop, the balloon drop, the moments after we’re sweat-soaked, covered in glitter, standing in a room full of strangers and lovers and memories all fading into fog. And the DJ played on. Turning this house into a home.
I think we all want to have what they have been having.....!
Octo Octa will be gracing Sneakys exactly 1 week after he plays Berlins Panoramabar so it is a great pleasure to have him at WASABI DISCO - See what the fuss is about on Oct 20th.
