OCTO OCTA – ‘BETWEEN TWO SELVES’ 2×12″/CD
flooring masterpiece by SILK’s slow-simmering house savant. the

vox samples, software dub, glassy pitch-shifted emotion. a haunting
peak statement by a true dude. on double 12 inch and CD.
SHAMS – ‘PIANO CLOUD’ 12″
brooklyn provocateur jonathan coward finally drops his vinyl debut and
it’s an immersive vapor chamber of balearic daydreaming and paradise
mnemonics. an ideal summertime slab of self-described “brunch house”
by the big apple’s merriest prankster.
