Octo Octa in the Bad Room
It shouldn't be surprising that Brooklyn-based producer Octo Octa (née Maya Bouldry-Morrison) had already logged tireless years as a fringe IDM artist and sound designer before her debut EP Let Me See You lasso'd a mighty wave of international house-heads to the dance-floor and helped push underground house label 100% Silk onto everyone's radar in 2011. Seven records later, which include a misty deep-house slow-burner in the Where Did You Go/Through The Haze 12" for Chicago-based, Smartbar DJ Steve Mizek's Argot imprint and the soaringly luxurious More Times EP for German powerhouse Running Back, Bouldry-Morrison's finely-tuned marriage of exquisite compositional flare, meticulously-sculpted sonics, and primal dance-floor functionality has earned her a a Red Bull Music Academy residency in Manhattan, which found the producer working closely with Harald Bjork and Throwing Snow, as well as tours across the world that included coveted gigs at Berlin's Panorama Bar, Frankfurt's Live At Robert Johnson, and Barcelona's Sonar Festival.
Fresh off of having SPIN Magazine herald percussive floor-burner "Cause I Love You" as one of the 50 Best Dance Songs Of 2014, Octo Octa currently has forthcomiing coming 12"s prepped for DeepBlak and Stay Underground It Pays and is preparing for another year of pushing her unique sonic perspective and shimmering club-ready earworms through soundsystems across the world.
Alex Burkat began DJing over seven years ago, while at university in
Pittsburgh. Now, settled in Brooklyn—but south of the parts documented
in the New York Times Style section—he dedicates himself to music full
time, with the results appearing on records with Warp, Third Ear
Recordings, 100% Silk, and Mister Saturday Night Records. His urgent
and luminous house track “Shower Scene” made it onto John Talabot’s DJ
Sounds you’ll hear listening to Alex Burkat: hip-hop, house, techno,
disco, and dub. If a good set is all about release, then Alex is a
student of your standard five-part narrative arc (and comes equipped
with a student’s willingness to bend the rules until they break). A
music video director and producer, he understands narrative, and the
satisfaction of tension.
