Let's get it straight from the start,both intellectual and also naive,sweat soaked and wide eyed at 5am on the dancefloor,we do this for all the right reasons.Firmly rooted in the ideals of techno as a movement-a 20th century artform,Octopus was born out of the necessity for our unique sound to be heard.A degree more left-field,more anarchic than most typical dance music labels,from our elegant modern design and penchant for the craftsmanship,we always seem to push toward a more hedonistic and chic brand of individual expressionism.The labels initial limited edition output included work by artists and remixers Sian,Gui Boratto,Ripperton,Calculus,Nico Purman,3 Channels and Herve AK.The new series of Octopus releases will feature brand new core artist material plus remixes from Jonas Kopp,Roland M Dill,John Selway,Tadeo,Norman Nodge,The Hauntologists,Jet Project,Exercise One and more. An important facet of Octopus is the coalescing of visual artists into our circle,forming collaborative partnerships using new technology and explorations in audiovisual adventures. Octopus is curated and maintained by Sian and Mirus in Barcelona.Already a distinct upcoming talent,Sian has made guest appearances on labels like Sci&Tec,Soma,Pokerflat and Mule plus ongoing output on the Aus imprint,with pioneers like Steve Bug,Gui Boratto,Minilogue,Efdemin and Pan-Pot remixing him,he is now regarded as an intensively inventive emerging electronic musician and DJ.Taking his dancefloor voodoo worldwide,he's broken hearts and boundaries alike in clubs globally.Meanwhile,the Norwegian Mirus manages the imprint,DJs everywhere and is the solid foundation for the labels growth. Only in its infancy the label is already gaining support by everyone from Carl Cox,Dubfire,Slam,Loco Dice,Sasha,Josh Wink,M.a.n.d.y,Damian Lazarus and James Lavelle to DJMAG,XLR8,Raveline,BBC Radio1 and Resident Advisor. The labels output is in context as a whole,challenging the traditional way of releasing albums or 12s,we aim at spanning eras in our development,working seamlessly with our roster artists and the contemporary peers we most admire....we bring you rare,inspired techno classics.
