Releasing perplexing electronic records since 2003, whether it be on UK Uncharted Audio label, or perhaps Blacknight and their debut "The Siamese EP", the Electronic Tapes founders known ever since as Octavcat, return for another raw analog bath of saturated and heavily modulated bliss!
Signing "Arbourne" to VLSI Records; another one of the UK's finest underground electronic labels, Octavcat delivers 6 brand new tunes. At times shrewd, acidic and classic, other times forward-thinking and adventurous, reminding the listener of works by iconic artists such as Aphex Twin. All in all an absolutely mind-melting ride through playful and gleaming worlds, decorated with intelligent, and at times even devious sound design.
"Arbourne" by Octavcat was released on July 17th, 2020 on digital formats, as well as a very limited, hand numbered vinyl run. Grab your copy straight from the label's Bandcamp page before this record sells out! Not one to be missed.
