Octavcat are brothers Rich and Matt Cawte, alongside motion graphics artist Jamie Bradshaw. They return to Uncharted Audio with a new album of crunchy melodic tunes. Created from a variety of ageing electronic boxes, this album is dedicated to all the old gear used by the brothers that has ended up on ebay or in the skip.
Previously releasing their “Hard As Snails” LP for Uncharted Audio as well as featuring on U-Cover, Unlabel and Blacknight, most recently (on top of astonishing the top London venue Koko with their mesmerising live A/V set) they were selected from a pool of over 4000 submissions to be included on Bleep.com's “Filtered” compilation project which was put together in association with Warp Records and Soundcloud, which found them in good company. This is quite simply timeless, classic UK electronic music.
Praise for Octavcat:
"Constantly shifting colours like a kaleidoscope... clever buggers" Wire
"Tinkly and crunchy with more melody than you could shake a stick at. Lush electronic music!" Norman
"Tangy AFXian funk" Boomkat
