ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Octiv8--- born on the Isle of Sylt in northern Germany this artist creates compositions strictly spontaneously. Influenced by the likes of Tangerine Dream, Alan Parsons Project, Hawkwind, and Pink Floyd, Octiv8's debut album 3-2-1 is a concept album meant to be listened to in its' entirety for a Mental Massage effect. "The imagination of the listener provides the melody for the music."---Octiv8

Octiv8 fills the gap when it comes to chillout tracks and ambient soundscapes that lack groove power. Vice-versa for groove tracks that lack a mellow and casual vibe. This is a dynamic original collection of compositions that bridges ambient music with dream trance creating Psychedelic Electronica.

Here are some reviews of track #2 Angles:

Angles is the result of improvisational performances on a track by track basis. Layering one sound upon another with a feeling of freedom and content as the theme. Some compositions have a more planned construction than this one. This one was all freeform and is one of my favorite pieces.


Mellow and comforting
This is a nice relaxing trancey track...I like the subtle shifts in the synth sounds...This is a good ambient track...Positive vibe. I would sit and chill out to this track in a dimly lit room...My girlfriend walked in at around the 6-minute mark and said she liked this one too. Great job on this one.

Floating in Space
This song reminds me of floating free in space. It's has a nice relaxing feel to it. The build-ups in the song make it more interesting than having a melody repeat for a long time. Good work!

-----------K.D. Canada

Good work
Music that isn't afraid to go on an excursion. Strap into your seat, fire up the rockets, activate life support systems, and enjoy the ride.

GET's....in...my...skull
Very nice mood setting with that beginning tonal loop and then the drum crescendo. Close the eyes, let the modulation mess with you, move around you. Love the subtle movement in the eighth note tones and overlay of the two moving lines. Excellent sound choice and development.

Excellent music in a genre where bad music is easy and good music very hard
Octiv8 has succeeded in making extended electronic pieces which maintain a persistent mellow groove yet remain intellectually captivating throughout. He does this by weaving different voices in and out of the groove with an uncanny sense of timing -- each voice repeats just enough to be fully appreciated, but never long enough to become annoying.

My only minor nit to pick is that the CD comes in a simple (artistically decorated) cardboard sleeve instead of a jewel case. It certainly suffices to protect the CD, and unlike a jewel case won't break when dropped, but those of us with collections like having a case thick enough to have recognizable writing on the spine. But don't let that stop you from buying this excellent CD.

Total time: 54:06

Great refreshing ambient grooves
A nice disc to relax and chill to, but not in a sleepy kind of way. With a positive vibe throughout, it's hard not to be in a great mood while listening. Production skills and sequencing are quite good and the grooves are solid, but never over done. Don't let the bargain price throw you. This one's worth every cent.
