Octo Octa - Requiem For The Body

9,99 €


New to the Stay Underground It Pays gang, the eighth release on the label comes from none other than Octo Octa ! You know him from his prolific run on 100% Silk, and more recently for his EP on Gerd Janson's Running Back label at the top of the year. The man from Brooklyn serves up 4 slices of that U.S. experimental house sound we love so much. On the A side, we have two versions of Octo Octa's melancholic title track, Requiem for the Body. Both as good as the other, it's gonna be split for a lot of listeners on which is better. While both versions share certain elements, the second plays down the long keys of the first versions in favour of some stabby chord patterns. Either way, proper 4 a.m. business!On the flip, we get a bit more ethereal with Times Two (Loose Version). Simple yet effective, this one has a lot of atmosphere with those delayed vocal cuts over that late 80s bassline. Closing out the record is When Home. This one is a bit of a stomper at first until it brings in the lighter synth elements halfway through. Someone, somewhere will have an epiphany listening to this track. If it's you reading this, send in the results on the back of a postcard. All in all, another killer release that feels straight at home in the Stay Underground It Pays catalogue. VIDEO
