Big news for fans of the Octopus Recordings label and its label boss, Sian. Now in its 10th year the Octopus imprint has earned recognition from the Techno community’s pickiest taste-makers by consistently bringing cutting edge releases to the table year in and year out.
The Irish born and now LA based DJ and producer has always stood out stylistically and personally, and that shine has never been as evident as it is with his latest long player, Capital Crimewave. The album is due out on April 10th and sees the ever-evolving producer jump from raw Techno to dubbed Electronica to even a few Hip Hop beats alongside AG Fernandez.
March 20th marks the release of the LP’s teaser EP featuring the title track as well as “Question Gravity” and “Stuxnet”, serving as a delicious precursor to the full release.
On top of the LP’s announcement, Sian kicks off his Capital Crimewave album tour tonight in Ottawa at City At Night. Miami during MMW, Zurich, Budapest, Detroit, Brooklyn, and Sau Paulo are on the books as well as the tour runs through mid-July, with more dates to be added as announced. Listen to the LP mini mix below ahead of its release at the end of this month.
