The Octave One brothers Lenny and Lawrence Burden have a healthy 12 albums and over 100 records credited to their names since they launched their debut track almost thirty years ago.
Their first single “I Believe” was released on the on the massive Techno 2: The Next Generation compilation alongside Carl Craig, Marc Kinchen and Jay Denham in 1990. Their track “Blackwater” has also achieved classic status along with other goodies like “The X-Files”, “Empower” and “Siege”.

It’s not hard to see why after a peek at the duo's live set-up, which is always decked with a bounty of hardware that somehow keeps them and their music constantly in motion.
