Octo Octa – 'River'
Both Octo Octa (Maya) and Eris Drew contributed original tracks to the fabric presents compilation. Octo Octa's ‘River’ appears first in the mix and draws on the religious connotations of repetitive angelic vocals echoing over her signature breakbeat style. The listener finds themselves in a heavenly trance.
"River is about many things. It's about my connection with Eris and a special place we visit often. It's about water and it's ever-changing and shifting nature. It's about my goddaughter, River, who was dancing in the backyard while I played with my x-box for the first time. I saw her youth and excitement and thought about the future and all the healing to come. I wanted to bring all of that movement into the song."
