We hope it never happens, but we need to know we are covered in that aspect as well. Lenny: For one thing, Zana [Smith, owner of the shop Spectacles] is a staple in Detroit, just period. And we wanted to be a free event and we want to play downtempo, stuff that we normally would not play. And really, to just have a nice little occasion with our fans. Lawrence: Zana always supported the underground. We wanted to show her some love as well. We are part of the same fabric, you know.
WestBam wanted Ken to play Mayday, and that was actually the only opportunity he ever had to play overseas. And actually, I was a roadie, with my other brother Lynell, for [pianist] Bob James. And of course Dan has since passed away. So what do good writers do for you, as artists? He did our first record label. Lenny: He sampled Hellraiser or something; he was crazy, man!
He used to come by at the studio on Eight Mile. What are your thoughts? But we never had mega-style clubs. Even the Music Institute, that was the bomb. But it was not a huge club, it was a small storefront type of operation. And even Broadway, even when I hit heavy house clubs like Clubwe always had small venues. He sees the property is reasonable. I hope he can pull it off. Everyone seemed to be a DJ and to have a label. Hamtramck's Motor Lounge was cooking multiple nights a week.
But not everyone played live. That night, Lawrence, the eldest brother and the Mother Love Bone Shine DJ during the s, jumped onstage while younger brother Lenny took control of the visuals, in addition to performing live.
He was running the mixing desk, and I think at that time he had some lights, or some visuals running on the laptop — he was all over the place! So I ran up onstage and Octave One Featuring Lisa Newberry I Believe idea was just to kind of control the sound but I was amped up Octave One Featuring Lisa Newberry I Believe DJing, so I started tweaking EQs and punching things in and out.
And he started jamming even more, 'cause he was free up to start doing what he wanted to do, live-wise. So that's how literally, before people's eyes, that's how we built the live show — that particular show, the very first one! The Octave One crew and their label are now based in Atlanta. But the label name carries the address of their first studio: West, a small, two-story building still standing in Ferndale. At one point the label was host to a number of artists, including Anthony "Shake" Shakir and Terrence Parker.
Shake appreciates their "straight to the point no holds barred" approach to creating music. Parker adds his appreciation for their "integrity in both their personal and professional lives. I caught up with them over the phone to discuss their live show Saturday night at the Movement Electronic Music Festival, the album release party scheduled for Sunday, and their career, going back to its start in Metro Times: What's the performance going to be like at this year's festival?
How might it differ from your normal road show? Last year at the festival, we had the opportunity of debuting a few cuts from the album and we're going to play a lot more [of it] this time. Last year, we were on the Detroit stage; this time, we are actually going onstage with Disclosure, Method Man, things like that. For us, we always try to feel the crowd. We felt a little more aggressive last time, and Frank Sinatra The Voice Of Frank Sinatra knows what we are going to feel this time — playing before Octave One Featuring Lisa Newberry I Believe Man and after Kerri Chandler — so we'll see how it goes.
We like to be very versatile. We've played Gamelan Son Of Lion Gamelan In The New World techno events, more housier events; it just depends on how we feel.
Lawrence Burden: Yeah, really. How we feel, and how we feel the crowd. What they can handle at that particular time kind of dictates where we go. But this is going to be intense and progressive, because that is how we like to do things. MT: In terms of technical stuff, how many boxes of things, how many suitcases, how many — what's the metaphor here — what's the stuff? Lenny: We carry a lot of gear with us, man. I don't know how many synths to be honest [ laughs ]. Lots of synths, lots of drum Eddie Kendricks Girl You Need A Change Of Mind Remix, lots of effects; this is primarily a complete recording studio, minus the recorder, onstage.
Lawrence: Even for certain things we carry backup, so for certain things there is double as well, just in case something happens. We hope it never happens, but we need to know we are covered in that aspect as well. Lenny: For one thing, Zana [Smith, owner of the shop Spectacles] is a staple in Detroit, just period. She's been there for such a long time, and she's been part of the scene for such a long time, and we never had the opportunity to actually work with Zana. We don't get that opportunity to play Octave One Featuring Lisa Newberry I Believe something so intimate very often.
And Octave One Featuring Lisa Newberry I Believe wanted to be a free event and we want to play downtempo, stuff that we normally would not play. And really, to just have a nice little occasion with our fans. Lawrence: Zana always supported the underground. People that might be new into the scene don't realize Derland Byfield Jah My Light been around a long time.
