Taiga EP Previews [Vivrant]
With the anticipated unveiling of the inaugural release on his Vivrant imprint entitled the ’Taiga’ EP, Jeremy gives the public a sneak peek into his sonic treasure chest. Filled to the brim with a seemingly infinite number of unreleased gems, his music has at last found a place to call home.
Accompanied by a graphical profile and artwork created in collaboration with multi-award winning creative studio Rebels Studios, the EP conceptually resembles a mini-album. Made up of a total of four tracks with the first and last offerings, ‘Taiga’ and ‘Falls’, taking on the roles of proverbial set opener and closer. Played for the first time in Jeremy’s Group Therapy Radio guest mix, ‘Taiga’ is dark, thumping and hypnotic, while ‘Falls’, a new never before heard creation, is soft, dreamy and uplifting.
Second and third on the EP is ‘Pinkerton’ and ‘Roots’. While vastly different, they have a common denominator in being sophisticated, sure-fire peak time weapons. ‘Roots’ is energetic and soaring, while ‘Pinkerton’, made famous by the Olander and Prydz B2B BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix from earlier this year, has an infectious, trembling trademark Olander lead and a sawtooth bass-line your ancestors will feel.
In a time when the artform of curating an EP is on life support in favour of the more chart friendly single format, the ‘Taiga’ EP restores faith. Unlike anything you’re likely to hear from anyone else, it paints a positive picture of the future of innovative dance music.

Jeremy Olander – Goliath EP [microCastle]
Following up on his ‘Jackie’ EP on Pryda Recordings from last year, Jeremy Olander is back with the three track ‘Goliath’ EP on celebrated Canadian label microCastle.
Becoming one of Jeremy’s most sought after creations since its appearance on his and Prydz’s BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix, lead track ’Goliath’ is a fusion of new school progressive and contemporary techno. Its cavernous groove goes down as one of this year’s biggest bass line hooks, underpinning analogue-style melodies and cutting edge sound design.
The EP’s second and third offerings, ’Groover’ and ‘Bayhert’, find Jeremy crafting two of the most infectious productions of his career. The former features scintillating rhythms, waves of electronics and haunting vocal elements, the latter presents a tougher, darker and more techno inspired sensibility.
The remix of ‘Goliath’ is provided by microCastle mainstay Marc Marzenit, fresh from the release of his ‘To Love Until We Say Goodbye’ album on Henry Saiz’s Natura Sonoris, along with projects for Bedrock and Tronic, all of which have been met with both critical and commercial success. He’s stripped the original right down and reinvented the main elements into his own stadium sized techno behemoth; the result is one of Marc’s most dynamic remixes to date.
