october & borai - i didnt mean to / palmarosa
i didnt mean to / palmarosa
October has been releasing bass driven music from broken dubstep to jacking minimal house since 2003. Having established himself with his own Caravan imprint, and a gig schedule that regularly takes in Fabric, Robert Johnson, Bunker NYC, Cookies & Horst he is now heading up Tanstaafl a collaboration with respected Berlin based DJ Jon Osborn and has killer releases lined up on Skudge’s own label and Will Saul’s Simple. Borai has been a respected DJ for many years in Bristol, and can be found working behind the counter of one of the only 2nd hand record shops left in Bristol, Prime Cuts. He also works at Dub Studio the Bristol based dub-cutting house that has been making waves with their special vinyl dubplates. Together they make full use of the analogue synths and outboard effects in October’s studio. With the beautiful melodic sensibility of Borai’s synth lines meshing with Octobers jacking body beats, they fuse to create 2 sublime slices of warm, deep, but propulsive blends of slo-mo house, techno, & bass. ‘I Didn’t Mean To’ has a Detroit techno soul feel with Bukem style bass stabs and rainforest jungle ambient noises, whilst ‘Palmarosa’ is a sure-fire set starter, taking it’s time to build with cavernous bass stabs adding drama until the heads down jacking ensues.
