Monster Energy, Hifi Club & AEMCON present: 
Octave One Live
(Detroit/430 West)

Join us for a Canadian exclusive presentation, workshop and performance by Detroit techno legends, Octave One. 

Octave One is the brainchild of Lenny and Lawrence Burden. The Burden brothers burst onto the Detroit techno scene in 1990, producing Octave One’s debut “I Believe,” featured on the compilation Techno 2: The Next Generation. The collective also includes frequent contributions from siblings Lynell, Lance and Lorne Burden. Their 2000 hit single "Blackwater" has sold over one million records worldwide. Little Louie Vega, Danny Teneglia, Jeff Mills and Richie Hawtin are among the DJs that continue to regularly weave “Black Water” into their sets. The group has also earned critical acclaim for countless records including "Empower," "Nicolette" and “The X-files.” 

For their newest chapter, they blend the intimacy of the studio production process with the immediacy of the live performance. The Burdens mined the energy and experiences of sold-out gigs in dozens of cities across Europe, Japan, the UK, Australia and the U.S. to create Burn It Down. The track “Whatever She Wants” was composed on tour in Berlin for a strictly house set that Octave One played with the U.K. band Disclosure. “From the first time we played it we would always see some girl or girls raising there hands in the air getting lost in the music,” says Lenny. “We’d always say, we played it for her — whatever she wants. We kept in in the set and played it at the Boiler Room. We never intended to record or release the track, but we received many requests from fans after the Boiler Room for its release.”
