Brooklyn based Michael Bouldry-Morrison or widely known as Octo Octa is back with a new EP, ‘Cause I Love You’, an infectious piece of New Jersey influenced House that’s been well worth the wait.
The EP starts with a bang, with its choppy vocals and strong bassline, the lead track for the EP of the same name is sure to be a big club hit. The track builds in tempo before Octo drops in a heavy percussion and synth to surely get you bouncing no matter where you are. Keeping strong and heavy throughout most of the track, with repeated vocals throughout to echo this, the song comes to an abrupt end making sure that your hitting that repeat button for another fix of this future club banger. The only word that comes to my mind when describing the track is a word, which fits no track better than this, jackin’. The rest of the EP shows off more of Octa’s true talents, leaving the bass behind Octa presents some more slow and moody classic house.
The second track So Lux goes moody with its slow tempo and is sure to be one of those late night tracks. The other tracks “So Lux” and “Give” featuring Raw Moans carry keep you on this psychedelic rollercoaster. Known for sporting a trademark handlebar moustache, Octo is definitely an artist you’ll want to check out if you get the chance, and if this EP is your first taster of him I would keep an eye out to see what he’s up to in the future. ‘Cause I Love You” is out on the 100% Silk label and available to buy now.
