- Upside Down
Hot Creations | 19.10.2018
Swiss production wizard Andrea Oliva returns to Hot Creations this October with a solid three-track EP that oozes a fierce and fiery rhythm.
Title track Upside Down fires up the EP from the off with its growling bassline and elements of glitchy goodness. Piano Not Piano juxtaposes hi-hats against the thud of the industrial bass, adding piano chords and a drop of acid. The EP closes with Sound Like That, a groovy roller with a distorted vocal stab. Discussing the EP, Andrea explains that he wanted to “have influences of acid, house and techno, supported by solid grooves”, also revealing that he is “very happy to be back on the label with three diverse tracks”.
A mainstay on the White Isle and with appearances at Tomorrowland, Sunwaves, Sonus, Medusa, Kappa Futur and DGTL, Andrea Oliva is one of the industry’s most in-demand DJs. In 2016 he was invited by Radio 1’s Pete Tong to record a coveted Essential Mix, which was live from Ushuaia. Last year he also made his Boiler Room debut, as well as performing Mixmag’s Lab and DJ Mag sessions. He’s released on respected imprints such as Desolat, Knee Deep In Sound, Saved, Moon Harbour and Relief and has remixed for a plethora of high-profile artists. Now with this latest Hot Creations release, Oliva’s career shows no sign of slowing down.
