Boomkat Product Review:
At the risk of repeating ourselves, 100% Silk drop yet another superb EP, four tracks of deep, sexy, emotional House music from Octo Octa. Nope, we've never heard of them before either, but judging from the fresh calibre of these cuts, we hope to hear more. Compared with recent offerings from Magic Touch and Ital, these cuts are ostensibly crisper and more modern-sounding, as though they forgot to turn the 100% Silk fug machine on, and they're all the better for it. A-side there's the restrained energy and grinding House drive of 'Let Me See You', next to the beautifully suspended emotional float of 'High Reflection', while flipside bears the deft, R&B-sampling finesse of 'I'm Trying', and the Detroit-infused melancholy of 'Coldwaves'. Check the samples, you're in for a canny treat.
