Octave One Presents Random Noise Generation ‘Endustry’

Octave One drop a new album under the much loved Random Noise Generation guise. The first RNG release was ‘Falling in Dub’ in 1991 and sounding just as fresh 27 years later, ‘Endustry’ is out this week on 27th April 2018.

Something of a new take on their creative process the Burden brothers made most of this music on the road while they toured over the past year, using the country they were in at each time they recorded to influence and inspire each track. “We were tucked away in so many hotel rooms that we decided to make sure we brought enough extra equipment so that we could set up a true lab to create from country to country and make the grooves that we wanted to experiment with on the dance floor.” comments Lawrence.

This body of work encompasses 7 full length cuts, naturally all with that classic Octave One emotion. “’Alkaylze’, more than any of tracks on this project, embraced the original spirit of Random Noise Generation in so much as the “machine” seemed to be really guide the creative process.” Adds Lenny “Much of the foundation of the composition was very accidental, but inspirational, with various musical devices interpreting data in a very unexpected results. It actually came together quite quickly but things just fell into place so naturally.”

After touring and making music for decades the spirit and essential energy of the craft is what keeps them eternally inspired to keep creating and touring the globe… ”Once it takes hold of you you can’t stop even if you wanted to.” says the pair, and so ‘Endustry’ is born.

ALBUM TRACK BY TRACK:

Endustry – Mechanical percussions enforce the futuristic psyche leading into a robotic lead, whilst a warm bassline overlaid with intensely digitalised synths. Ominous and perfect for when the dance floor needs toughening up sonically.

Alkalyze – Mesmeric drums underlaid with filtered low swung jolting percussions pave the way for resonating sci-fi melody with fleetingly glide in and out throughout the track. Hi-tech trippy shakers, hi hats and timbral toms weave and cosmically oversee the development of this minimalistic sonic thunderstorm.

Crank – A throbbing, reverberated and slightly detuned percussive bassline roars in advance of a tangled and contorted synth lead punishingly arrives. Ride cymbals constantly lift and bridge whilst in the background obsessed vocal stabs give a sinister edge.

N2 The Enfinate– Definitive sharp snares, well rounded precise kicks give a solid backbone, a perfect platform for questioning synth keys. An enticing icy melody provides the answer to the prodigious lead melody which towers later in the track.

Refraction – Astronomic basslines, gargantuan drums with a space age groove.

Soul Xchange – Motorised synth melody lines. Agitated percussion. Crystal clear harmonies.

Thee Arrival – Off tangent rhythms, un-conforming synth line melody. Drifting bass, spiralling percussions.
