Tendencies: Octo Octa + Chris Cruse
We had some cute Pride moments with you all :)
Tendencies is of the mind set that Pride is all summer ...
Please welcome very special guest Octo Octa!
Her debut EP Let Me See You lasso’d a mighty wave of international house-heads to the dance-floor and helped push underground house label 100% SILK onto everyone’s. Seven records later, Maya Bouldry-Morrison’s finely-tuned marriage of exquisite compositional flare, meticulously-sculpted sonics, and primal dance-floor functionality has earned her tours across the world that included coveted gigs at Berlin’s Panorama Bar, Frankfurt’s Live At Robert Johnson, and a live set from Barcelona’s Sonar Festival.
Fresh off of having SPIN Magazine herald percussive floor-burner “Cause I Love You” as one of the 50 Best Dance Songs Of 2014, Octo Octa is preparing for another year of pushing her unique sonic perspective and shimmering club-ready earworms through soundsystems across the world.
Chris Cruse DJ is back!
A home-grown legend who has gone on to play Berghain's Panorama and shows all across Europe, we are happy to call him family. His sound, equally influenced by dark warehouses and West Coast sunshine, has propelled him into the "Spotlight". And as the creator of Spotlight, he has reclaimed and celebrated the queer roots of house, techno, disco, and other forms of dance music right here in our beloved city.
KIM ANH, a mainstay of Tendencies, continues her summer hurrah of raw house, techno and cunt traxxx. With summer releases and an EP forthcoming, there will be lots of nice surprises.
