Octave One “Afterglow”

Octave One‘s set for us last year was phenomenal; the energy, setting and metronomic head twists made it a no-brainer for inclusion in our Best of 2014. If you’re that way inclined, you can hear the story behind how Boiler Room helped relaunch their career in more depth over here, as relayed to Derek Plaslaiko and our very own Michail. Seven tracks from Moscow made it onto their new LP, due May 26th, of which “Afterglow” was arguably the strongest.

Much like the towering behemoth of “Blackwater“, it’s a synergy of styles; dozens of boxes chattering away to one another in harmony. Somehow the track manages to be both flinty hard and yet shimmering, the lead curdled and yet crystal-clear. It’s dancefloor TNT, an emphatic return from the brothers Burden. Burn It Down indeed.
