Destructo lays down his own house spin on Oliver’s ‘Last Forever’

This post was originally published on this site

Destructo is just on a different wavelength than us mere mortals. He helms one of the largest event production forces in the country, serves as one of dance music’s most trusted A&R forces, holds down a SiriusXM residency, and lives out the dream of being a world-famous touring DJ all at once. It seems like every week Gary Richards has something exciting to offer — he can link up with Busta Rhymes for a proper hip-hop cut, and then follow up with a club-primed house piece just days later without missing a beat. Presently, Destructo is gracing us with a new take on Oliver and Sam Sparro’s “Last Forever,” dropping off a solid dose of disco with a slick bit of contemporary house influence.

Putting his chameleonic studio capabilities to work, the “Catching Plays” producer takes on Oliver’s “Last Forever” keeping the original tune’s plucking, pronounced bass line as the backbone, but offering a more subdued, house-leaning spin on his take. The remix comes hot off the announcement of LA’s new AMFAMFAMF summer event, and judging by Richards’ momentum both in and out of the studio, 2018 is bound to be a banner year for Destructo.

Los Angeles duo Oliver — Vaughn Oliver and Oliver Goldstein — shared their remix of Beck‘s track, “Up All Night,” the third single from his thirteenth studio album, Colors.

Adding their own invigorating synth colors to the track, Oliver reinvents the track into a robotic counterpart, instilling a sense of manufacture to its central elements. It’s danceable, friendly, and a forthright effort from the duo. The remix pays due homage to Beck’s lush vocal abilities while shifting into futuristic mode, with the end result entirely delectable.

Oliver released their otherworldly album, Full Circleback in September.

Los Angeles-based producer duo Oliver has released an innovative LP titled Inner Circle: Remixes and Rarities. Saturated with their unique funked-out style, Oliver captures a distinct vintage sound infused with contemporary electronic elements. The LP includes four new tracks, as well as three remixes from their studio album, Full Circle, which dropped last September. Each new track on the LP showcases another side of the duo’s groovy approach to their work.

Filled with beautiful harmonic progression, the first original, “Big City,” flaunts a combination of melodies intertwined together to create a stunning contrast between bass guitar progressions and electrifying piano chords, all tied together by waves of otherworldly synths.

Their second piece, “Endless Conversation,” featuring Johnnie Newman, features uplifting vocals on top of dynamic bursts of percussion. The unwavering bass line is complemented by syncopated beats and an intriguing melody.

“Charisma,”the third original, is more downtempo than the other tracks and incorporates several layers of glowing synths with steady undertones. Jamie Lidell’s colorful vocals add an alluring dimension to the work, creating a sensual vibe with inviting lyrics and an irresistible beat.

In their last original, “Bygones,” Oliver flexes their signature sound, producing a hard-hitting melody layered over waves of unrelenting bass. In line with the style that has made the duo renowned, Oliver places a soothing interlude of minimalist sound in the middle of the piece, but then amps up the energy with a riveting build that leads into an intricate climax.

With their first release of 2018, Oliver once again flaunts their flawless production skill, elaborate technique, and mastery of combining vintage sounds with a style of their own in Inner Circle: Remixes and Rarities.

The Knocks & Captain Cuts – House Party (Oliver Disco Mixx)

This post was originally published on this site

LA-based duo Oliver have been consistently making a name for themselves with an array of innovative originals and funky remixes. Each release is fresher and more inventive than the last, and their most recent song is a perfect example.

Oliver have released a “disco mixx” of The Knocks and Captain Cuts‘ “House Party,” which came out last month. The original possessed the classic feel-good vibe that is consistent in both The Knocks and Captain Cuts’ music. Though that collaboration was already exceptional, Oliver have stepped in and turned the clock back to the golden age of disco. The “disco mixx” of “House Party” turns the focus on the groovy beat, nearly doubling the length of the track. The original mix’s vocals were primed for a reworking like this, giving Oliver’s rendition a seamless a life all of its own.

Tove Lo has unveiled a three-track set of remixes for her song “Disco Tits” just a few months after the song’s initial release.

Kicking off the remix package is a grooving electro-funk rework from LA-based duo Oliver. Though the original track had a prominent bass line, Oliver have crafted a more dance floor-ready take on “Disco Tits.” They’ve modified the disco-pop song’s backbone, drawing attention away from the vocals a bit to focus on the dance-heavy beat. While the rhythm is front and center of this rework, Oliver pay homage to Tove Lo’s original intentions by giving the remix a sexy, sassy vibe that fits with the sultry lyrics.

KREAM and Beatanger are also featured in the remix package, out now on Universal Music.

Innovative duo Oliver release otherworldly album, ‘Full Circle’

This post was originally published on this site

LA based DJ and producer duo Oliver is known for their futuristic vibe infused with excerpts of classic instrumentation. Their brand new album, Full Circle, is an eclectic mix of styles that still maintains the duo’s signature sound. With an array of classic and novel variations, Oliver keeps listeners on their toes as each song transitions into the next surprising wave of euphoria.

The album opens with “Portrait,” a reverberating introduction that echoes harmonies into an escalation of bliss, delivering a preview of what is to come throughout the album. Along the way, Oliver’s style had evolved from the creation of the album to the finalized product that was released to the public.

The album took two years to finish so a lot can change in that amount of time. The first song “Ottomatic” was made almost three years ago where “Go With It” was made a month ago, in that amount of time of go through so many different phases of inspiration. Most of the more uptempo songs on the record were made early on, I think we just switched gears over the last year and started getting back into soul and R&B music. Over all I think our production choices a engineering kind of bring it all together.

Their sound can best be described as upbeat, high-energy, and incorporates a variety of stylistic elements including funky, jazzy and R&B feels, all amped up by electronic beats. Oliver has also introduced Chromeo, Elohim, Yelle and others into the album, creating entirely unique sentiments within each track. The result is simply stunning.

We’ve always loved collaboration with other artists but in the past it’s mostly been us producing for their records. This time we kind of got to lead the way which was really fun. In the past we were more track driven, meaning we didn’t work with vocalists a lot, so that took a while to adjust to. We have so much love and admiration for everybody we worked with so that made the song writing process easy.

The duo does not hold back when it comes to putting their ideas on the line. Unafraid of the unknown, they venture right into uncharted territory by experimenting with a style so distinct and incomparable that each piece flows effortlessly and is packed with pleasant surprises.

We make honest music that comes from a place of love. This album is us doing exactly what we wanted, just being ourselves and getting to try a lot of different ideas.

One of the most notable tracks on the album is “At Night,” a moving, colorful original that has a simple yet dimensional melody, calming builds, and an overall relaxed feel. They explain the formation of the dynamic piece that happened to be a long process, but was well worth the wait.

No favorites, [on the album] I can’t really be objective about my own music unfortunately. I guess right now I like “At Night,” it was a really simple demo that we did back in 11′ and we always kept coming back to it, I was so happy to finally finish and release it.

Long-time friends and Berlin house mainstays Oliver Dollar and Daniel Steinberg have teamed up to deliver four energetic, club-ready cuts for Steinberg’s Arms & Legs imprint. Complementing each other’s strengths in the studio, the two German producers seamlessly blend together catchy house grooves with harder techno sensibilities to create a stand-out sound distinct from their own individual output.

The EP’s lead track, “Another Gal,” is ready for both big festival stages and tiny packed clubs. Starting off with bold thudding kicks, fuzzy hats swirl away in the background while a filtered vocal snip works up a sweat and slowly unfurls with a swinging groove underneath. The torqued up kicks delight the ear and propel the track endlessly forward as the bright vocal sample plays off backing distortion. With early support from heavy hitters across the board such as The Black Madonna, Skream, and A-Trak, it’s safe to say that “Another Gal” will be pleasing crowds all throughout the summer.

Stream “Another Gal” below, ahead of its May 26 release.
