Based in the brand new York City borough of Brooklyn, but blessed in Chicago, Illinois and elevated in the Windy City aswell as in Brand-new Hampshire, Maya Bouldry-Morrison is normally a residence producer who functions beneath the name Octo Octa. Bouldry-Morrison bought her initial drum machine in senior high school with regard to playing with close friends, and it had been around this period that she began to absorb digital music. In 2011, she aligned using the then-emerging 100% Silk label (a subsidiary of Not really Not really Fun) and debuted using the four-track 12″ I WANT TO Find You, highlighted with the somewhat off-center, Amerie-sampling “I’m Attempting” as well as the concurrently blissful and somewhat ominous “Coldwaves.” By the finish of the entire year, she set up a cassette of segued materials, dubbed Rough, Tough and Raw, that was sold throughout a tour ahead of being offered as an electronic download. The next year, Bouldry-Morrison created Independence 2K for fellow 100% Silk action LA Vampires, aswell as Oh Appreciate, another four-track 12″ discharge. The record Between Two Selves implemented in-may 2013 with eight even more monitors of dreamy but dancefloor-oriented materials. Octo Octa released yet another 100% Silk EP (Trigger I REALLY LIKE You) before issuing materials on a multitude of underground home brands, including Argot, Working Back again, and Deepblak. Bouldry-Morrison officially arrived as transgender in 2015, and gave an extended interview with Citizen Consultant in early 2016. Her second correct record Where Are We Heading? made an appearance on HNYTRX (the imprint of San Francisco-based staff Honey Soundsystem) in 2017. Typically lush and appealing, the album highlighted a somewhat more breakbeat-heavy audio than her previously work.
