- Cause I Love You by Octo Octa
1 review. Write a review for us »
Octo Octa comes in hard on new EP ‘Cause I Love You’. The title track is a pulsating bit of dreamy synth house with the simplest melodic refrain in waveringly decayed stabs and some cleverly chopped vocal samples, bouncing hard for its duration and stopping abruptly, this one is party gold from the ever-reliable 100% Silk and Octa in general has at this point proved himself to be a safe pair of hands.
After that body-pumping opener he cuts off into more drifty territory in the smoothly euphoric ‘A Place In The Sun’-on-acid languor of ‘So Lux’, there’s some clever handclappy bits that come in halfway through that flutter confusingly around the stereo field and then he drops it right back to booming drum pads and shuddering looped vocals and eases us back in again. Classy stuff.
Overleaf ‘Give (featuring Raw Moans)’ is similarly chilled, a coldly drifting synth drone blending with a reverbed vocal loop and mechanically thimping rhythms. Finally there’s a remix of ‘Mine’ which brings us back to the bouncy tempo of the opener. Good 12”.
