FROM THE DARK CORNERS WE BRING YOU…
Newworldaquarium (Delsin/NWAQ | NL)
“When it comes to contemplative house and techno, few recent artists are more influential than Joachim Peteri, AKA Newworldaquarium or Ross 154. A cornerstone of Amsterdam's Delsin family, his tracks play out like vivid, sub-aquatic landscapes—a style he established with 2000's 'Trespassers,' a simple house groove that remains something of an anthem today, thanks to little more than a weird chirping sound and a chunky kick drum.”

Octo Octa LIVE (100% Silk | NYC)
Octo Octa is Michael Bouldry-Morrison, a Brooklyn-based house music producer. Following the release of his debut EP “Let Me See You” on 100% Silk in 2011 – a release described by label head Amanda Brown (LA Vampires) as “literally one of the favorite songs ever released on either of my record labels” – he went on to produce three further releases for the label: ʻRough, Rugged, and Raw,ʼ ʻOh Love,ʼ and an eventual collaboration with Amanda Brown, the ʻLA Vampires by Octo Octaʼ release “Freedom 2K.” His singular brand of R&B-sampling deep and emotional house music has propelled him to the forefront of a scene of house-not-house producers garnering widespread critical acclaim in both traditional electronic music and indie-minded musical circles. Having recently been a participant at the 2013 Red Bull Music Academy in New York, and with a new LP ‘Between Two Selves’ out on 100% Silk, Octo Octaʼs ascent is imminent.
