Octex - electronic music

One of the most profiled and internationally established Slovenian electronic musicians, operating somewhere in between club and avant-garde, exploring the boundaries of rhythmical atmospheres drowned in dub aesthetics and sub-bass frequencies.



New Album Mindrifft

I'm excited to announce my new album "Mindrifft". It will be released in 6 parts as a series of releases in the span of 6 months on my newly started label Polynya music, with the first release scheduled for 11th of October. It will be premiered in its entirety on 29th of September at the Sonica festival in Ljubljana in the form of a live AV performance, with accompanying hypnotic visuals.

Mindrifft explores the phenomena that occur when we listen to repetitive music, which makes us hear tonal and rhythmical shifts that are not there. I discovered that introducing this kind of shifts into the music creates a feedback loop between the music and the listener's brain, blurring the boundaries between what is real and what is imagined, causing a special hypnotical effect.

The music was created using vintage analog synthesizers controlled, processed, and augmented by a modern modular system, spiced up by hands-on mixing desk manipulation, and rounded off with some clever digital processing.


New track out: Resurfal (Drums Got Lost in a Blizzard Mix)

It's been a while since I've released something into the wild, but I'm resurfacing with a new track on a brand new compilation of Slovenian ambient music Senzorama vol 1. on Zarš records. Originally a very rhythm-driven composition reimagined as it would sound like if performed amidst a blizzard. Check it out, and stay tuned for resurfal to continue later this year.


Westworld Scoring Competition 2020

My entry to the Westworld Scoring Competition.
I was always fascinated by movie soundtracks, especially ones gravitating towards electronic music, from the Tangerine Dream, Eduard Artemyev, Vangelis, Philip Glass to Clint Mansell ... Even my album Dead Centre of Nowhere is a fictional soundtrack to an imaginary movie.

Out now: Pavemental - Streeteepy 12"

I'm returning to the rx:tx label, with a new beats and hiphop driven side-project Pavemental. Streeteepy reflects the funky flow of skateboard tricks, overlaid by the spacious chords of the city, spiced up by his studio trickery.

K4 Podcast mix


It's been a while since my last recorded mix, so here's a massive 56 track one to make up for it, recorded for Club K4 Podcast. It's more on the dancefloor friendly bass heavy side.


Dead Center Of Nowhere


Originally recorded 10 years ago as a sequel to Idei Lahesna, but due to numerous unforeseeable circumstances so far never released, it is now finally getting a proper release on the nice french label Entropy Records.
