OCTAVE ONE live
The electrifying live performances of Octave One are one reason that the Detroit born and bred producers are in constant demand. On stage, Octave One transforms synthesizers and sequencers into vessels of funk, house and symphonic beats. The live show is evidence of what longtime fans already know. Octave One has penned several of the dance floor classics that define an era. And now Octave One is gearing up for its next chapter: A world tour and their new single “Just Don’t Speak”. The EP "Love By Machine" EP is being released this year. Octave One is the brainchild of core members Lenny and Lawrence Burden. The Burden brothers burst onto the Detroit techno scene in 1990, producing their debut “I Believe,” featured on the compilation Techno 2: The Next Generation. The collective also includes frequent contributions from siblings Lynell, Lance and Lorne Burden. Their 2002 hit single "Black Water" has sold over one million records worldwide. Little Louie Vega, Danny Tenaglia, Jeff Mills and Richie Hawtin are among the DJs that continue to regularly weave “Black Water” into their sets. The group has also earned critical acclaim for countless records including "Empower," "Nicolette" and “The X-‐files.” Their 2015 album Burn It Down further pushed the pillars of funk and soul forward and introduced the band to a new generation.
