ABOUT Octave

Octave is one of the emerging techno artists in France – no real wonder since he grew up within a musical atmosphere and had his first experience with turntables in 2003 and thereafter concentrated more and more on a minimal approach to techno, which he started to produce by himself in early 2007.

After his first few steps into the techno field with a spate of releases in 2007-2008, he was chosen by none other than Richie Hawtin to take part of the “Sounds From Can Elles” project, and saw one of his track released on M_nus by the end of 2008.

In early 2009 he started to develop a live Octave persona and has had the chance to play in some clubs in Europe – including Tresor – with fantastic reactions to his sets on the floors and with fans.

These days Octave continues to develop and is constantly evolving. His music combines a deep-rooted foundation of techno underlined by stirring basslines and rhythms, superb glitch moments, and hypnotic background atmospheres.
