On June 17th Bodytonic Music present the fear inducing yet exquisite Mouth To Mouth EP by cult Dublin band Ocho. Distorted bass, grinding rhythm and icy atmospherics give EP opener Vines a dramatic, dark and icy Celtic beauty, all set to the spectral voice of lead singer Stace Gill. Completed by producer /writer DOS and a plethora of talented guest musicians, the band's ambient sound is influenced by an eclectic mix of music from around the world. Ocho released their hauntingly beautiful debut Young Hunting in 2012 and Mouth To Mouth marks a mesmerising return for the intriguing duo and their unique brand of ice-cold, soulful electro, getting support from the likes of Severino, Anthony Naples, Fish Go Deep & more
Disco master Darshan Jesrani (one half of the legendary NY duo Metro Area) reworks Vines into enchanting Balearic sunrise house, presented in both vocal and instrumental incarnations.
Ocho amp up the drama level even more for an engrossing, trance inducing fantasy journey high into stratosphere on Disappearing. The EP closes with the epic, Burial-goes-baroque torch song 'Offshore'.
Bodytonic started life in 2002 as a small club night based in Dublin and has since thrown parties everywhere from Sonar to Berghain, with guests including Carl Craig, Theo Parrish, Laurent Garnier, Horse Meat Disco, Switch & Diplo, Marcel Dettmann, Ben Klock and Q-Tip.
In addition to their ongoing club nights and label, Bodytonic run Irish nocturnal institutions Wigwam (formerly the Twisted Pepper venue) and the Bernard Shaw pub, whilst other areas of their rapidly growing empire include festivals, pubs, brewing beer, restaurants, a gallery, apps and websites.
The first release on Bodytonic's labels came in 2007 and they have since put out records featuring Ron Morelli & Svengalisghost (under their Ghost 202 guise), Naum Gabo (AKA Jonnie Wilkes from Optimo), Mr Fingers, JD Twitch and Irish stars Kormac & Tr One.
Bodytonic releases are forthcoming from Adultrock and Hmeflght, with Bodytonic parties at Snowbombing, Dimensions, and Wigwam in Dublin happening in 2016, with events at ADE and beyond in the pipeline.
