For its fifth offering Syndicate unleashes the highly anticipated debut release from electronic duo, Octover. The self-titled seven-track EP brings the best out of both producer Jason Tan and vocalist Vanessa Fernandez (Vandetta) as they create their own aural palette to present a slick modern blend of R&B, soul and jazz.
For more than a decade the pair traveled separate musical journeys, balancing profile-building productions and pursuits of passion. Sporadically crossing paths on commercial projects, their bond grew steadily stronger through cigarette-laced conversations on the mediocrity of mainstream, the search for new sounds and a mutual appreciation for all things artistic and beautiful.
Since its inception, Octover has been on great stages which include the Gilles Peterson Worldwide Festival and the Esplanade Late Nite sessions.
