About this item

Detroit techno veterans Octave One flipped the script back in 2000 with the massive, seminal smash "Black Water" and now it's back, remastered and repressed in the original 430 West artwork. The bass heavy, rapid fire groove is laced with loose and limber machine funk from start to finish, as those classically Detroit strings duet with the jazzy riffs. On the A2 "Black Waters" strips that shit back and dubs it out for proper warehouse destruction. Flip the disc for a slice of history with the original, instrumental version of "Untold". The flawless combination of rippling sequences, buoyant bass and shimmering hats propelled this one into every set that mattered back in the day, matching and surpassing Rolando's "Knights Of The Jaguar" from the year before. If you don't own this record, then your time has come.
