Octex - FILTER27 Mix 002 (2006)







Octex (real name Jernej Marusic) has been experimenting with music equipment since the late 90s when he fell in love with the sound of old analog synthesizers. In all this years he found himself in doing 'Organic Crackle and Tone EXperiments' (Octex), fusing his diverse influences with the unique flavour of Ljubljana. This resulted in releases on numerous compilations, the first one being Elektrotehnika Slavenika.

In 2002 he released his debut album "Idei Lahesna" on Tehnika Records, which received high praises from both critics and the public, and tracks from it got licensed to numerous compilations and mix CDs. His self-made video for the track "Emergon" got played on such TV stations as VIVA and Onyx TV, which is quite surprising for this style of music. 2005 saw the release of "Variations" on rx:tx label on which "the misty, heavily processed dub of Variations, sunk in the thicket of unique soundings, crackles and noises is so thick, greasy and interlaced, that it can swallow an unprepared listener."

In the meantime, Octex has become one of the most active Slovenian live acts and has performed on such prominent festivals as Club Transmediale, FutureSonic, ISEA, La Batie, Nuit Blanche and Exit - either solo or as part of multimedia project Signal-Sever.
