Premiere: Octave One presents Random Noise Generation ‘Refraction’

Legendary Detroit duo Octave One revive their revered Random Noise Generation alias for a fierce new LP – ‘Refraction’ is a blistering, percussive number with an industrial twist...

Detroit’s Octave One will release their first new music as Random Noise Generation since 2006 this Friday 27th April.

The brothers Lenny and Lawrence Burden debuted the project back in 1991 with ‘Falling in Dub’ and have since used the moniker as a vehicle for propulsive, industrial fuelled techno, with their blistering live sets serving as a true indicator of their unstoppable influence.

‘Endustry’, the duo’s first album under the guise since 2006’s ‘Off The Grid’, is a six-track serving of raw energy. Set to drop on Detroit’s 430 West label, the album was produced while the pair toured through the past year, experimenting with the grooves and sounds they were creating in their live sets.

“We were tucked away in so many hotel rooms that we decided to make sure we brought enough extra equipment so that we could set up a true lab to create from country to country and make the grooves that we wanted to experiment with on the dance floor,” Lawrence explains.

‘Refraction’ – premiering below – is a fierce indicator of the album’s energy, with its metallic percussion and clattering bass groove surging forth through its six-minute run time. A true example of the mechanic, out-of-human-control purpose of Random Noise Generation, it’s a track that keeps you coming back for more and more.
