Octopus welcomes Kangding Ray
Octopus is delighted to announce Kangding Ray as the latest addition to our roster.
From his early releases on German imprint Raster-Noton to his more recent output aimed for the dancefloor — Kangding Ray’s trajectory navigates the unexplored territories between experimental music and dance music. Throughout his exploration, he remains focused on music that triggers both an emotional response and causes a visceral impact.
His collaborative project “Neon Chambers” with Sigha, has gained global attention since the première of their mind-bending live show at the legendary Atonal Festival in Berlin.
With only one EP released on the Dekmantel label, they have already played a number high-profile festivals including Sonar Barcelona, Dekmantel Amsterdam, Brave Factory Kiev, Nowa Muzika and Forte, paving the way for what is set to become an era-defining record.
