Eris Drew & Octo Octa are next up in the fabric presents series.
DJ/producers Eris Drew and Octo Octa, real name Maya Bouldry-Morrison, who are partners both in life and music, will join the likes of Bonobo, Kölsch and Maribou State with 'fabric presents: Octo Octa & Eris Drew', slated for release next month.
Spanning bassline, house, acid, and UK hardcore, the couple's mix was recorded on vinyl from their cabin in the forest of New Hampshire. The mix also featues two new tracks from both producers — Bouldry-Morrison's holy breakbeat number, 'River', and Drew's reflective 'Reactiv-8'.
“This mix is about letting go and trusting that change is good during a time when the very idea of hope is under challenge," Drew and Bouldry-Morrison said. "We are collage artists so themes are woven throughout the mix, with narratives reappearing via our use of drops, scratches, doubles."
The mix will be released on the 27th November via fabric Records, on CD, digital and double vinyl formats, and is available for pre-order here. Check out the full tracklist, which includes music from CZR, Global Method and Y U QT, below.
