DESCRIPTION

Octave One are back. The mesmerising "Jazzo" is their latest sonic assault  on ab electronic music landscape they have helped define.

Even though Lenny and Lawrence  Burden have now relocated to Atlanta, they remain at the epicentre of Detroit Techno. Octave One came to prominence in 1990 via the Virgin album 'Techno Two : The Next Generation' which also brought to the dance community for the first times the names Carl Craig, Marc Kinchen and Jay Denham. Since then they have released a series of genre defining (and expanding) tracks as Octave One and alter ego Random Noise Generation on their 430 West label. And the Octave One live shows have become infamous all over the globe as outpourings of Emotions Electric energy.

The release on 430 West in 2000 of the epic "Jaguar" by DJ Rolando brought extra attention to the label, and this was surpassed shortly afterwards with Octave One "Blackwater", quite simply one of Detriot Techno's finest moments.   The single led to the album "The Theory Of Everything" which explored diverse musical directions, An embryonic version of "Jazzo" was started but then forgotten about. After being rediscovered in the 430 West archives it has been remodelled and the result has become an anthem at the live shows.

Now it is available as a limited run 12 inch single on 430 West. The Mothership is about to take off again.
