Octo Octa is riding a wave- her third full-length, Where Are We Going?- out via the consistently on-point Honey Soundsystem imprint- is already a contender for electronic album of the year, bubbling with infectious grooves whilst also addressing salient issues around politics and identity. Read our recent feature with her here.
The album’s release has instigated a flurry of new attention in Octo Octa and deservedly so- her knack for crafting hooks and creating sleek, unfussy earworms is second to none.
Her Crack Mix treads similar ground, weaving through various shades of lush house from the likes of Roman Flügel before concluding with a tender and surprising cut from drum’n’bass outfit 4hero. It’s powerful stuff from one of the most exciting artists on the scene today.
