Octo Octa (DJ Set)
Brooklyn-based artist Michael Morrison making house/tech electronic
music. Michael has been releasing mainly house music as Octo Octa on 100% Silk since 2011.
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.
