The brainchild of Lenny and Lawrence Burden – two Detroit born and bred producers who are in constant demand – Octave One transforms synthesizers and sequencers into vessels of funk, house and symphonic beats. The Burden brothers are both trained musicians who took an early interest in DJing, programming and inventing their own gear. In 1990, they founded 430 West/Direct Beat Records, a record label that paved the way for the rise of independent electronic music labels throughout the ’90’s.
