Fresh for 2018 the ever pioneering Octave One are bringing us some brand new music for the new year. Using their much loved Random Noise Generation alias the duo are set to drop a double A-side on April 6th with the album following shortly after on April 27th.
The first Random Noise Generation release was ‘Falling in Dub’ in 1991 and sounding just as fresh 27 years later ‘N2 The Enfinate’ is a double A-side featuring a new single and a remake of ‘Rock my Soul’ in the form of the ‘Reborn Vocal Remix’.
A retro energy has been explored in the title track ‘The EnFinate’, running parallel to a more contemporary groove and rolling, marauding baseline. The second track on the package, ‘Rock my Soul’ (Reborn Vocal Remix) starts with a strong intent and a weighty bassline paving the way for precise and bright chord stabs. The single is taken from the new album ‘Endustry’, a full body of work encompassing 7 full-length cuts, set for release in spring.
Something of a new take on their creative process the Burden brothers made most of this music on the road while they toured over the past year, using the country they were in at each time they recorded to influence and inspire each track. “We were tucked away in so many hotel rooms that we decided to make sure we brought enough extra equipment so that we could set up a true lab to create from country to country and make the grooves that we wanted to experiment with on the dance floor.” comments Lawrence.
This body of work encompasses 7 full-length cuts, naturally all with that classic Octave One emotion. “’Alkaylze’, more than any of tracks on this project, embraced the original spirit of Random Noise Generation in so much as the “machine” seemed to really guide the creative process.” Adds Lenny “Much of the foundation of the composition was very accidental, but inspirational, with various musical devices interpreting data in very unexpected results. It actually came together quite quickly but things just fell into place so naturally.”
After touring and making music for decades the spirit and essential energy of the craft is what keeps them eternally inspired to keep creating and touring the globe… ”Once it takes hold of you-you can’t stop even if you wanted to.” says the pair, and so ‘Endustry’ is born.
