Persian only had 4 tracks to work with in ‘Octamed’: All singing & chatting was recorded onto a Cassette Machine, before being sampled & used in the Amiga. “When 8 Bit, low quality, crusty sample rate ruled the day; you had to be really inventive with what little you had. Limited sampling time forced you to be Creative”
This E.P. displays DJ Dlux & Persian’s writing ability from a young age to write Big Tunes!
