Formerly known under the live duo alias, Casual Affair, a project recognised throughout London for its signature rolling fluidity and acidic beats, Øliver has a history of electronic music in his blood. In 2016, he took the decision to focus on a self-titled solo project with an evolved musical direction.
Raised in an environment with a father as a musician, Øliver was inevitably immersed in music from a young age. These musical beginnings were founded around a deep taste for heavy sounding Metal and melancholic genres. Evident in his recent sets and recordings, these prior sounds are playing an influential role in Øliver’s new musical scope. In 2017, the intentions become clear, a style and sound focused around the emerging post-punk movement, whilst retaining a solid home within the techno field.
A key figure in the London techno community, Øliver also holds a residency at Grey Matter, an experimental night started by Grea Area Agency back in 2015, providing the capital with a distinct and selective stream of international and home-grown artists’. Alongside his appearances as a DJ across London’s spaces, work on a debut EP has emerged, set to embody this bold new chapter.
