Partners Octo Octa and Eris Drew have launched a new label.
Founded on their love of "DJ culture, nature, magic and each other" and named after the pair's beloved party series, T4T LUV NRG, the label will release “limited edition alchemical objects for use in DJing, dancing, kissing and crying.”
The first release comes from Eris Drew with ‘Raving Disco Breaks Vol. 1’, a new cassette mixtape featuring ’90s turntablism techniques inspired by Chicago radio DJs. The 70-minute feel good mixtape brings together Miami bass, breakbeats, disco, rave and plenty of other summer sounds.
A limited run of ‘Raving Disco Breaks Vol. 1’ are available now on donation basis from Bandcamp. Profits will go to Sylvia Rivera Law Project (SRLP), which works to guarantee that all people are free to self-determine their gender identity and expression, regardless of income or race, and without facing harassment, discrimination, or violence. Listen to the mix below.
A double 12″ album by Octo Octa will then follow on T4T LUV NRG, her first since 2017's ‘Where Are We Going?’. She also released the ‘For Lovers’ EP on Ninja Tune’s Technicolour imprint this March.
Eris Drew and Octo Octa will be going b2b at Kraków’s Unsound this October with a host of incredible talent. Read more here.
