Musique Electronique Opening Night Party: Octo Octa
It shouldn't be surprising that Brooklyn-based producer Octo Octa (née Maya Bouldry-Morrison) had already logged tireless years as a fringe IDM artist and sound designer before 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 radar in 2011. Seven records later, which include a misty deep-house slow-burner in the Where Did You Go/Through The Haze 12" for Chicago-based, Smartbar DJ Steve Mizek's Argot imprint and the soaringly luxurious More Times EP for German powerhouse Running Back, Bouldry-Morrison's finely-tuned marriage of exquisite compositional flare, meticulously-sculpted sonics, and primal dance-floor functionality has earned her a a Red Bull Music Academy residency in Manhattan, which found the producer working closely with Harald Bjork and Throwing Snow, as well as tours across the world that included coveted gigs at Berlin's Panorama Bar, Frankfurt's Live At Robert Johnson, and Barcelona's Sonar Festival. SPIN Magazine championed her percussive floor-burner "Cause I Love You" as one of the 50 Best Dance Songs Of 2014, Octo Octa's resume continues to grow in 2017, with tour dates around the globe, and a full length album being release on Honey Soundsystem
Golden Donna
Golden Donna
Golden Donna is the electronic outlet of Madison, Wisconsin's Joel Shanahan. The project draws on genres ranging from psych to house music to create layered tracks built on powerful, danceable rhythms and bass lines and intricate, headphone-worthy synth composition.

"As Golden Donna, Madison, Wisc.'s Joel Shanahan makes synth-based instrumentals that slide from psychedelic workouts into the kind of soaring pop that evokes 1980s movie soundtracks." —Marc Masters, Pitchfork

"In truth, it all comes off more as a composition than a track, the song's six-minute run landing on a number of different musical sections, each with their own distinctive moods and melodic hooks." —Glenn Jackson, XLR8R, on "Empty Charm Vessel"

"[Golden Donna's second album, II, is] a tour de force of dance music styles whose constituent parts are themselves accomplished hybrid." —Little White Earbuds
