I heard that this work is a work by jeff mills.
Composition style is also closer to Mills Mix of BC-01 than other basic channel works.

First time I've heard this tune, am just generally perusing the site.

But as a semi-fan of BC (they've made some awesomeage tunes, they've made some utter jank tracks) I have to more than agree with you@technogenic - just bought it right now and am going to listen to it on my 'fones and hypnotise myself the fugg out :)

In my humble opinion, Octagon is one of the finest pieces of electronic dance music ever recorded. Everyone seems to have their favourite BC 12", this is mine, the use of polyrhythms are what make this a stand out piece for me, and for the time, 1994, it sounded like nothing else, yes the elements are identifiable to some extent, but the way they are combined here is what make this a special record.
