Ambivalent – Scorpio E.P (Octopus)
Has been a little while but we are back with a bang with this monster E.P from Ambivalent on Sian‘s Octopus Recordings.
Ambivalent has established himself as one of the leaders in Techno. Spending his time between New York and Berlin you can clearly hear how both cities have had an impact on his sound and the approach that he takes to making music. He has created a unique style that flirts across different genres with ease whilst always keeping its roots firmly in Techno. Cutting his teeth as part of the Minus family has given him the platform to bring this uinque sound to the masses of the underground and we are in no doubt his following will continue to grow for a long time to come.
This is his first E.P on Octopus and we are sure its an honour for Sian to have him on the label. Octopus continues to go from strength to strength and when the label can attract such heavy weights as Ambivalent it is clear they are doing something right.
The E.P is a 3 track affair and whilst all 3 tracks are solid and will do damage on any techno floor we have selected Sinduda as our pick!
As always please support and share the music!
Sian – The Policeman Inside You (Octopus Records)
So the guys over at Octopus are celebrating a milestone of 50 releases! And there is no better way to celebrate than a huge stomping release from label boss Sian. Especially a release that contains two tracks from the man himself and two remixes from Ambivalent and Sam Paganini! You know what to expect when those kind of names are involved in a release, pure techno at its finest, and that is certainly whats on offer here.
We have a lot of respect for Sian and what he has built with Octopus, It’s a label that has a very strong identity and and he has created a unique sound whilst attracting some of the biggest names in the underground onto the label for releases, remixes and compilations. It’s not easy to juggle both a label and a hectic touring career but he has managed to make it work seamlessly. We have obviously worked closely with him and label partner Chris with our own releases on the label so we can vouch for the professionalism of the label first hand!
Back to the release, It’s all about peak time techno which is what the label has built a solid reputation for! Our pick of the 4 is the lead track titled “The Policeman Inside You”. It’s a track that oozes impact, power and a ferocious low end. We are sure Sian has been destroying dance floors all over the world with this bomb and now we are guessing it will destroy the techno charts! All 4 tracks are solid and Ambivalent and Sam Paganini have really delivered with two amazing remixes.
