Review: In recent years, the Burden brothers seem to have devoted much of their time to live performance. Singles have been few and far between, and their most recent album - in collaboration with their other family project, Random Noise Generation - dropped way back in 2006. Burn It Down, then, could be considered something of an "event" album. Happily, they've lost none of their ability to combine rich, futurist melodies and evocative chords with rolling Motor City rhythms. At its best, such as on the classic Detroit brilliance of "Whatever She Wants" and the acid-tweaked funk of "The Forgotten", it's a stunning set. While not all the album lives up to these dizzy heights, there's still enough to suggest that it should be an essential purchase.

Cat: 4W 240. Rel: 02 Nov 15
  1. Empower (6:36)
  2. The Resolution (6:06)
  3. Passageway (5:00)
Review: We're sorry to be brutal about this, but there is no way that we will introduce Detroit's Octave One at this stage in 2015, and if you haven't by any chance come across them as of yet, we're both disappointed in you, and you'll just have to let the music do the talking. 1995's Foundation EP is herein reissued by an unknown source, but we couldn't care less, as it's one of those releases that has been missing from our shelves for way too long. As its title implies, these three tracks represent the techno movement in its fullest, and from "Empower" to "Passageway", the Octave One duo put together everything that is fresh and interesting about the genre: sci-fi, dystopia, funk, industrialism, futurism, and heavy beats. Essential doesn't even cover it.

Octivation: The EP (reissue)
 Add to cart
 in stock $9.73
Cat: 4W-100. Rel: 04 Apr 16
  1. Sonic Fusion
  2. Octivate
  3. Paradise
  4. Nicolette
  5. Epilogue
Review: Having first appeared on the monumental Techno 2: The Next Generation compilation in 1990, Octave One swiftly set out their sound to become the Detroit techno icons they currently are with the Octivation EP for 430 West. The rest they say is history. Given the reissue clamour of anything related to the birth of Detroit techno, it's quite strange that the record hasn't been licensed for an official new edition in the ensuing two decades or so, until now that is! Presented here in it's promo edition, you get a chance to here "Sonic Fusion", a track that never officially came out and was replaced by "There and Beyond". Any self respecting Detroit techno fan will know "Nicolette" and "Paradise" and anyone interested in increasing their knowledge of the genre should consider a must have!
