The French The Reactivitz and Canadian Atroxx joined forces to debut on Octopus Recordings, the prolific techno imprint from Los Angeles. Having released on the likes of Suara, Phobiq and Respekt to name a few, they bring freshness to the techno circuit with the hard-hitting “Optical Converter” EP. Following their collaboration “Black Rune” on Suara, The Reactivtiz comments on “Optical Converter”:
“This is the biggest release so far we produced together. We put a lot of energy into this EP and we wanted to stay true to our style.”
Before diving into the entire EP, get your feet wet by first listening to the EP’s standout cut, ‘Purity’, premiered on Dancefloor Romancer. This one has a satifying way of continuing to knock deeper throughout.
