Premiere: BOHO & Maksim Dark’s “Octopussy” Receives Three New Remixes

“Remember when Jannowitz records released Octopussy EP by BOHO and Maksim Dark early this year? Remember when we already spoiled with our outstanding remixers Stefan Biniak, Acumen and Justin James? Octopussy was such a success that Jannowitz asked completely new faces to join the label and play with the Octopussy. And we couldn’t believe what happened next.

Three producers said yes. The headquarter went crazy! The result is nothing less than an entire “Octopussy Remix EP” touching everything between house and techno – just like the original EP.

Kellerkind is our second Stil vor Talent act on this EP. He has been in the business for more than a decade and knows his shit. His housy Octopussy edition surprised us by using a lot of elements from the original but still achieving to sound totally different from the blueprint. Rounding “Octopussy Remix EP” off with nice vibe and some new killer members of our family.” – Jannowitz Records
