Octo Octa "Deep Hurt"
There's a major caveat to consider ahead of our enjoyment of this new tune by Brooklyn producer Octo Octa: The dude samples Aaliyah throughout "Deep Hurt." At this point in the acapella-jacking game, anything recorded by the deceased, iconic singer has been re-appropriated so many times that you're treading on some very well-worn ground if you even borrow one hard-to-pin-down phrase from her stellar output. That said, producer Michael Morrison makes fine use of the "We Need a Resolution" clip by dropping it into a bed of deep synth pads and bolstering the vibes with some softly pumping house rhythms underneath. You can likely hear more of the same when 100% Silk drops Octa Octo's Oh Love 12" next month. (via Gorilla vs. Bear)
