Biography

Brooklyn producer Michael Bouldry-Morrison has always stood out among the 100% Silk roster. As Octo Octa he was making crisp, hi-definition dancefloor music when much of the L.A. label’s output felt like an extension of the dubby psychedelia of parent label Not Not Fun, or else pursued an overtly retro, lo-fi house aesthetic. And in contrast to his peers’ allegiances to the US underground, Bouldry-Morrison’s emergent style seemed to mirror the U.K.’s adoption of house forms— particularly in its use of bold chord progressions and re-pitched R&B a capellas (see the “1 Thing”-sampling “I’m Trying”). But Bouldry-Morrison’s use of these techniques has always been inventive and, above all, distinctive— the sugary synthetic surface and lambent reverb haze of his tracks is often unmistakable. And as 100% Silk has continued to churn out records of variable quality over the past couple of years, Bouldry-Morrison is one of its few signings who, you sense, may have a future beyond that corner of the underground.
