Stunning techno from: Octave One – AfroTech #Detroit #Techno #NewMusic #Electronic

Here’s some stunning new techno from second wave Detroit techno stalwarts Octave One. Comprising brothers Lenny and Lawrence Burden they debuted way back in 1990 on the legendary Transmat label. Their output has been measured and perhaps as a result they’ve never quite had the prominence that their work has deserved. Here’s a track – AfroTech – from their new release Locus of Control Volume 2.

They say, “This EP series takes its name from a psychological concept that refers to how strongly people believe they have control over the situations and experiences that affect their lives. Part 1 showcased euphoric piano stabs and uplifting drum lines, and Part 2 explores more propulsive techno.” AfroTech is a distilled seven minute journey through the last thirty years of Detroit techno. It’s a sleek, precise futuristic ride with a sleazy urban dystopian bass line. This give the track some raw power and an irresistible momentum. Parlez vous techno? You do now.
