Next up for our winter season of artists from the Icelandic deep techno hive, we welcome Jonas Thor Gudmundsson AKA Ruxpin AKA Octal Industries. This amazing 1 hour of deep, dubby, industrial machine techno sounds is released under his Octal Industries moniker... why? Because it is a live improvised electronics performance of mostly unreleased Octal Industries materials. Now living in Tallin, Estonia, this guy is an absolute legend in our view, having released many strings of mind-bending releases since the late 90's on some magical labels (including Thule Records) and leaving a frothing wake of highly sought after deep/dub techno releases. Since the early days of his career he has collaborated with some of the most talented artists from Iceland including Yagya, Árni Valur Kristinsson and OHM, and also with some from further afield including Rod Modell and Michael Sickinger from the USA. Despite this rich artistic legacy, it is clear from his words below and this live mix before you now, that his musical story is still unravelling with lots more exciting chapters soon to come. "On the 28th of November 2018 I sat down and did a little studio mix - compiled with loops and samples from mostly unreleased tracks from my vault. Some of the songs are my creation and others are collaboration work with my good friend OHM. I don't think the plan is to somehow showcase a current live set, but rather to showcase what listeners might expect with the releases upcoming in 2019. I'm trying to find some middle-ground between dancefloor and home listening. Not sure if that works, but we'll see. There are some interesting releases in the pipeline, mostly done in collaboration with OHM. There will be 12" releases on the legendary Rawax, Luck Of Access (a new label run by Andrey Pushkarev), and also a digital release on Gartenhaus. I have an ambient techno-style LP ready in my archives, which I'll throw out myself digitally (or by other means) when I find a proper gap in the release schedule. I'll also have a track featured on a compilation from Unknown Tribe. Anyway, lots of good things on the horizon and I'm sure that 2019 will be as fruitful as the previous years have been for me."
