[LISTEN] Balance Selections 039: Jeremy Olander
Looking back at 2016, Jeremy Olander could make a case that it was his biggest year so far…
He launched his new label Vivrant which saw 4 out of the first 5 releases make it to number one on Beatport, and he also took the brand on a label tour across 5 continents which included a sold out hometown gig to 1200 people alongside Henry Saiz, Finnebassen and Charlie Don’t Surf. His Talespin EP on Suara made it to number one on Beatport’s Top 100 Releases chart, and the B-side, ‘Panorama’, sat at number one on the Progressive chart for impressive 35 days straight. On the remix front, Olander notably reworked ‘LETTERS’, the Sailor & I and Eekkoo collaboration released on Big Beat/Atlantic – a remix which is quickly approaching 1 million streams on Spotify.
2017 is well set to be even better: The ‘Damon’ EP is out now on his own imprint (the first release from Olander this year); upcoming is an collaboration EP with past Balance Selections compiler Cristoph, and a non-stop tour schedule is ensuring the Vivrant label owner is taking his sound globally.
For this podcast the Swede has delivered a mix which feature an exciting amount of new Jeremy Olander productions: ‘I’ve included a lot of unheard stuff to make it stand out and show people what I’ve been working on lately.’ Olander told us, ‘Most of these I haven’t played at any shows so I’m excited to try and gauge what people might like by the reactions’. And we can only think the reactions will be positive. Jeremy Olander has gone above and beyond to deliver something special.
