OCTUVRE is the solo project of Juan Casamayor, who starts working with industrial sounds in late 2006. With Igor Blanco he forms experimental synth band Suit Tiger, releasing three records and becoming one of the first examples of the new wave of synth music.
In 2017, Juan releases his first solo album, Distancias, combining analogue synth electronica, rhythm sequencers, dark melodies and love and fatalism as central themes. His music evokes the industrial environment where OCTUVRE was born, among centennial mines and factories still in use.
“Distancias” (Contubernio Records, 2017) was recorded and mixed in La Ermita Studios by Pablo und Destruktion, and mastered by Santi Plagio.
