In an effort to close out 2013 in style, Jeremy Olander has previewed his next release. Following “Balboa” alongside label mate Fehrplay which the duo gave away for free, Olander’s newest preview showcases the Swede’s production prowess. Grabbing its namesake from a fictional creature created by Lewis Carrol, “Bandersnatch” uses a deep and driving bassline that never lets up. With dates around the world and a number of acclaimed productions during 2013, there is no doubt that Jeremy Olander had a banner year and will continue his momentum as 2014 inches closer.
Release date: December 23rd
Today is Thanksgiving. It’s a time to give thanks for good health, good friends, good family, and, of course, good music. We thought we’d take the time to pay tribute to our favorite parts of dance music culture on this day of thanks, not only for the guys who slave over turntables while we get to party, but for the dance music scene in general and its constantly expanding fanbase. This one’s for the electronic acts that put their heart and soul into it, the clubs that go all out every night of the week, and the people who live and breathe dance music. It’s the least we can do.
Fehrplay and Jeremy Olander have become the face of Eric Prydz’s burgeoning Pryda Friends label. Having toured together for more than two months now, it was inevitable that the two would collaborate on a track. To our collective delight, Jonas and Jeremy have released their much-anticipated collaboration, “Balboa,” for free. Beautifully fusing the talents of the two producers, the track incorporates the atmosphere and drive of Jeremy Olander’s absorbing techno with the pull and grandeur of Fehrplay’s cinematic production. Simply put, “Balboa” is stupendous.
Though the legendary nights of Eric Prydz’s EPIC 2.0 NYC and Los Angeles have passed, the memories of the historic performances remain fresh in our minds. Adding to our nostalgic pleasure, THUMP has released Fehrplay and Jeremy Olander’s highly coveted back-to-back set from EPIC 2.0 NYC. Opening with plenty of flawless techno from Jeremy Olander, the set picks up considerably when Fehrplay introduces such tracks as “Phantom” and “Indigo,” not to mention his and Olander’s new collaboration, “Balboa.” The hour and a half opening set is just what we needed in the wake of the spectacular Roseland Ballroom and Hollywood Palladium shows, and a splendid way to start your day.
Two and a half years ago, Eric Prydz took over London’s O2 Academy Brixton for the inaugural EPIC, or ‘Eric Prydz in Concert.’ The storied London nights reverberated through the dance music community, paving the way for an all out hysteria at the announcement of EPIC 2.0, the North American edition. With an emphatic two night NYC run in the books, Eric Prydz returned to his new hometown of Los Angeles for the only West Coast installment of the groundbreaking tour. As expected, what went down this past Saturday at the Hollywood Palladium was something quite spectacular — a feast not only for the eyes and ears but for the mind and soul.
Nearing the end of his Pryda Friends Tour with label mate Fehrplay, Jeremy Olander gives listeners a taste of the brilliant musicality he’s been treating audiences with around the US & Canada. Jeremy fuses the intensity of techno with the perfect amount of progressive energy to keep the set radiant and quick moving. He includes his own tracks such as “Tool 1,” “Tool 2,” “Bayhert,” “Apex,” and “Malensa” while mixing in a few from Cirez D, Eelke Kleijn and more. If you’re looking for a sound different than the ubiquitous bleeps and drops EDM has become accustom to lately, look no further that Jeremy Olander’ Vivrant Radio.
Swedish progressive techno superstar Jeremy Olander has decided to give us a little taste what he’s been playing during his Pryda Friends tour with a 35 minute mix. Blending in new IDs with tracks such as “Lauderdale” and “Uprising,” the mix shows off his impeccable skill of creating the perfect mood. The mix will have you hypnotized in its subtle transitions and progressive build-up. Catch him along with Eric Prydz and Fehrplay during their North American tour and experience something truly EPIC.
We wanted to create another way of expressing ourselves other than writing about our favorite tunes so we decided to feature Spotify playlists comprised of our personal picks. Get to know us a little better by exploring our eclectic taste in dance music. (more…)
