octo octa is the only person i can think of who is making this kind of personal, colorful, moody-ish, progressive, not-for-hetero-scenes dance music but there has got to be more of it out there. can someone point me to other producers in this vein? u.s. scenes appreciated but worldwide is fine.

i'm far from an expert on this stuff but eris drew's tracks from the split she did with octa octa are a decent place to start

D Tiffany maybe? Also that Eris Drew tune is amazing, only just heard it in the RA best tracks of 2018 list

Not sure why that hasn't embedded properly. The track is How RU Plush feat Regularfantasy and it's SUPER

This one’s from the Eris Drew / Octo Octa EP and OH MY GOD it’s as good as anything on Where Are We Going?

josh az (2011nostalgia), Tuesday, 15 January 2019 08:35 (ten months ago) link

Also, yeah, bumping this thread because i need more of this kind of music in my life

josh az (2011nostalgia), Tuesday, 15 January 2019 08:35 (ten months ago) link

ooh i like that

i don't really understand the op description or title tho. i don't really know what words mean in general.

idk this tune is old and italian (?) but it is quite no-heteros-allowed

oops not embeddable (also nsfw warning if you watch the videoclip)

dyl, Wednesday, 16 January 2019 03:43 (ten months ago) link

^^^ this is great. Think the thread title is asking for progressive house that sounds like early moby made by ppl who model for eckhaus latta

plax (ico), Wednesday, 16 January 2019 12:33 (ten months ago) link

eris drew track very much in that vein, is also a jam.

Eep, just compared the Eris T4T to Papua New Guinea in the Tracks thread and then I come to this one and there it is again. God Within 'Raincry' seems another likely reference point.

Twelves, Friday, 1 February 2019 01:17 (nine months ago) link

Totally.

Relatedly, the Hardkiss DJ mixes from the mid-90s are a pretty good reference point for this sound (or as good as any, esp. where most everyone acts like "nope none of this sounds like Bicep at all, what a ridiculous comparison").

damn @ the octo octa track. she is so fucking great.

macropuente (map), Friday, 1 February 2019 02:05 (nine months ago) link

way into the steam track that plax ico posted too.

tmi alert: i was at a bathhouse a few nights ago and the mix was not like this thread at all but i enjoyed it - kinda generic tech house working its way into diva vocals. not sure what about it i liked, i doubt the mix was that different from when i was there last 10 years ago, i think it's just a case of me just being so gay and basic and thinking that fucking along at 128 bpm to generic tech house is the best thing ever.

macropuente (map), Friday, 1 February 2019 02:17 (nine months ago) link

tbh being so gay and so basic seems pretty chill. uncritical moments where you can just be in the moment is how to live

Love the original of that! though for some reason I'd mistakenly thought it was a Freaky Chakra record

you’d be forgiven for making that mistake w artists named dj trance and darwin chamber

Rhythm on the Loose - Break of Dawn at 1:06:36, reconfirming my notion that it’s the greatest record of the early-ish rave era

i bought the cassette. i don't even have a cassette deck. i just wanted to give eris money.

You're actually giving the Sylvia Rivera Law Project money, which is even better.

Not sure if he overlaps with their scene at all, but both sonically and politically Chrissy's 2019 album Resilience is totally on point with the kind of breaksy rave-house sound Eris Drew and Octo Octa are pushing in their DJ sets, esp. tunes like "Play Structure".

Abigail, Wife of Preserved Fish (rushomancy), Thursday, 15 August 2019 01:15 (three months ago) link

New track “Can You See Me?” from the forthcoming OO album is essentially very pretty breakbeat rave (too fast to be breakbeat house, too slow to be d&b). Seems like the new album will be rather more in your face than the last one.

Tim F, Thursday, 15 August 2019 14:33 (three months ago) link

Yeah, more in line with her current dj sets with Eris, this is from two weeks ago. They (and us/the dancers) had a blast
