Review: DJ Octopus begins 2015 as he finished 2014, with a typically forthright selection of late night jams that join the dots between vintage deep house, acid, European techno and the analogue style jack tracks of Willie Burns and the L.I.E.S crew. There's a particularly day-glow feel about deep house opener "Untitled", which features looped organ riffs and energy-packed drum machine rhythms. "The Player" switches things up nicely thanks to some brilliant, cut-up slap bass antics, while "Ghost Antics" sounds like the sort of early British acid track that was found lying around on a dusty DAT. Finally, "Purple Pills" invited you to drop illicit refreshments and lose yourself in a brightly coloured fusion of rave chords, bounding beats and clandestine textures.

Review: Self-professed "90s MTV addict, vinyl supporter, and Akai lover" Marco Zanin is usually seen alongside Steve Murphy as Die Roh or indeed Steve Murphy & Co. Lately the Italian has been spreading his production tendrils as DJ Octopus with appearances on Chiwax, Muscle Records and Enlightened Wax. The Cycling EP sees Zanin bring his cephalopod house styles to the ever impressive Hot Haus operation overseen by DJ Haus and the four tracks see the Italian combine what people love about the Analogue Cops with bassline house techniques of artists like Huxley, with dirty Chicago fare thrown in. Four different shades of contemporary house music to make the one killer EP.

Aware Mistake - (5:07) 125 BPM
from $1.96
Review: Italian rave monkey DJ Octopus is a prolific sort. This is his third EP for DJ Haus's Hot Haus imprint in less than a year. As you'd expect, it's packed with weighty, dancefloor-friendly concoctions. He begins with the mangled rave vocal stabs, throbbing sub-bass and intense military percussion builds of "Aware Mistake", before calming things down a little via the loopy dub house business of "Fixed Thought". "Day By Day" sounds like an attempt to capture the spirit and unfettered joy of rave-era house - think urgent vocal samples, skittish breakbeats and "Pacific" style chords - while "Hangover" bangs hard thanks to its' heavy bassline, bumpin' beats and R&B vocal samples.

Bug Lady - (7:29) 127 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.96
Review: Twelve months on from his last appearance on the label, serial collaborator DJ Octopus returns to Hot Haus. Predictably, he begins with another co-produced affair, with Lucrieto joining him for the hip-house-goes-to-New Jersey cheeriness of "Wet Coast". On "Throne Keen" he wraps ghetto house-inspired beats in humid and feverish tropical sound effects, while "Morning Lab" fuses his usual punishing analogue rhythms with the deepest and richest of 808-State style chords. Finally, he surprisingly switches things on "Bug Lady", a loose, crunchy and low-slung house revision of the Patrick Adams-produced disco madness that is Bumblebee Unlimited's "Lady Bug". Fearsomely percussive, it should cause a commotion on all sorts of dancefloors.

Review: DJ Octopus has been busy in the last few years, appearing often alongside Steve Murphy on labels like Love Notes, Chiwax, Hot Haus and Shall Not Fade. On Volume 7 for House Crime he goes it alone, bringing the kind of raw, off-kilter but ultimately fun vibe that the label seems to plump for. "Born In 86" is an absolute head driller of a track, looped up but utterly addictive, while "Diastemia" offers a very different kind of disco-infused groove. This personality split runs throughout, ensuring there's never a dull moment diving into any of these sides of wax. Check "The Toy Is Mine" if you need proof that Octopus knows how to throw it down.
