Octa Push
live at the Glade Festival 2009
Brothers Dizzycutter and Mushug bring the sound of Lisbon's underground to Spannered... via a muddy field in Hampshire, UK
Portuguese brothers Leo (Dizzycutter) and Bruno (Mushug) have been working on their respective musical projects for over a decade, but it was only last year when they were asked play a show in their home city of Lisbon for local crew Conspira that they joined forces to form live/production outfit Octo Push. Since then the duo have found themselves increasingly in demand, remixing the likes of Jahcoozi, Buraka Som Sistema and DJ C, gigging from Glade Festival to Fabric, and even catching the ear of Thom Yorke with their highly kinetic blend of garage, techno, IDM, Afrobeat and bashment.
Octa Push made their vinyl debut this summer, launching Monkey Steak's Steak House imprint by way of a split EP with fellow Lisbon resident Mr Gasparov. This month sees the release of a white-hot three-tracker for Lisbon/Barcelona-based Iberian Records featuring the vocal talents of Cape Verde's Toni Clean and Panamanian-born MC Zulu, as well as the inclusion of their track Quebu Sabe on Soul Jazz Record's Steppa's Delight 2 compilation. They're also due to feature on Fabric's forthcoming release Elevator Music Vol I.

This live set was recorded on the Overkill stage at Glade 2009 as part of a showcase for Bristol's Ruffnek Diskotek (Octa Push appearing alongside Heatwave, Monkey Steak, Ghislain Poirier and MC Zulu, and Tim Dub Boy). Leo and Bruno tell us that their live act will undergo something of a transformation over the coming months, so track them down if they're playing a gig near you and find out what they've got in store.
 Deixa by Octa Push is out now on Iberian Records
