Octopus Recordings‘ Michelle Sparks delivers an EP full of rave bangers with her latest release “Melt.” A stellar talent on the core Octopus Roster, Michelle Sparks has honed an especially contagious form of dark, groove-based minimal Techno. Equal parts murky, peak-time dancefloor bang, and euphoric melody, her music bursts with primordial life.
However, Sparks isn’t doing it alone. She’s tapped other international artists to lend their talents. Romanian-born, Toronto-bred Simina Grigoriu remixes her version deep into an ecstasy dipped sci-fi tale, blasting through huge synth lines and gigantic rollercoaster builds. Dusty Kid serves up a ’90s infused rave banger, pulsating with rave energy. He is undoubtedly one of Italy’s most exciting electronic music acts.
Known for her take on atmospheric and futuristic techno music, Michelle Sparks creates a sonic state resonating with underground rave aesthetics. Her forward-leaning sound is infused with deep musicality and stripped-down minimalism. Octopus Recordings brings together a mix of classic modern techno. Under the leadership of techno heavyweight Sian, the label has constantly broken all the rules when it comes to music. Its music has remained hyped-up in the charts, radio, and press for almost a decade. With releases and remixes from luminaries such as Nicole Moudaber, Jay Lumen, Marc Houle, Victor Ruiz, Pig & Dan and Carlo Lio to name a few. The label now also includes a steadily growing core roster of fresh faces.
