Comments to album Basic Channel - Octagon / Octaedre
just got the 2020 repress. Is it the remastered one? What is the difference with the original version? Thanks.
Fast and as functional as Basic Channel gets (aside from being 13 minutes long, like a proto Ricardo Villalobos). Not quite as functional as Phlyps Track (which I read Pinch once mixed in and out of three times during an early stint in room 3 in Fabric), but effective dance floor wise, due to it being more heavily percussive (the little stab pattern which comes in at about 5 minutes gives it a counterpoint to the kick). The panning on the weird glitchy riff also gives it that hypnotic quality so beloved of Basic Channel. A small oceanic chord arises from time to time to give a cavernous feeling, but it is relatively reverb-free (at least by the standards of Basic Channel). Again, a Basic Channel track acting as a signpost to others, who took it to a destination that rarely was as good as the signpost itself.
I heard that this work is a work by jeff mills.
Composition style is also closer to Mills Mix of BC-01 than other basic channel works.
First time I've heard this tune, am just generally perusing the site.

But as a semi-fan of BC (they've made some awesomeage tunes, they've made some utter jank tracks) I have to more than agree with [email protected] - just bought it right now and am going to listen to it on my 'fones and hypnotise myself the fugg out :)
In my humble opinion, Octagon is one of the finest pieces of electronic dance music ever recorded. Everyone seems to have their favourite BC 12", this is mine, the use of polyrhythms are what make this a stand out piece for me, and for the time, 1994, it sounded like nothing else, yes the elements are identifiable to some extent, but the way they are combined here is what make this a special record.
