Hot off the heels of his superb remix for Funk D’Void, ONYVA continues to gather serious momentum for his ON IT Recordings label with a brand new single of his own. ‘Disco Got His Revenge’ sees ONYVA take the mighty ‘Disco’s Revenge’ classic sample, immerse it in some of his unique power-house wizardries and plant it firmly in the feel-good Tech House arena. Taking the remix controls are upcoming duo and ON IT label mates, Hott Like Detroit, who get set to smash the floor with their driving, energetic Tech-stomper.

“‘Disco Revenge’ has always been a classic of classics for me and that riff is stand out. I felt it would work to use that original Harvey Mason sample and build it into a more modern tech-focused dancefloor roller with a tight groove and modern arrangement. I didn’t want to lose that riff but keep it on the right side of cheesy. I think it worked!” – ONYVA

Hailing from Manchester, DJ / producer ONYVA, (Oliver to his mum) has quickly established a solid reputation by supplying a steady succession of quality releases aimed squarely at the dance floor. With his trademark punchy drums and big subby groovy bass that flows with an effortless energy, it’s no wonder he’s won the support from some of the world’s biggest DJs! Influenced by acts like 808 State and legendary venues such as the Hacienda during the 90’s rave scene, his love for dance music grew, buying his first decks at just 16. It was only a matter of time before his creativity blossomed further into music production being entirely self-taught in Cubase in around 2001. An avid record collector over many years, ONYVA regularly scours and delves deep into his 5,000 plus vinyl collection searching for musical nuggets to sample and upcycle for his new material. In the last eighteen months, ONYVA has released new music on Phonetic and his own ON IT Recordings imprint, including a recent remix for the legendary Funk D’Void. He has become no stranger to the Beatport Top 100 as well as the buzz and countless DJ Charts. His music can be heard being spun week in and week out by the likes of Joris Voorn, Skream, Nic Fanciulli, Yousef, Steve Lawler, Mark Knight, Marco Carola, Riva Starr, Nic Fanciulli, De La Swing, Latmun and Waze & Odyssey. The excitement continues with hotly anticipated new tracks released on Cr2 Records called ‘Can’t Beat The System’ which features on Cr2’s upcoming ADE 2017 release along with another ONYVA track called ‘Bang Nine’.

ON IT Recordings is a new evolving forward-thinking UK based record label owned by burgeoning producer ONYVA. So far the label has featured releases from Jey Kurmis, Hott Like Detroit, Funk D’Void and ONYVA himself, along with remixes from Funk Agenda, Brett Gould, Tuff London, Vibe Killers and Barber. The first track on the label’Tibetan People’ from ONYVA received huge support and was signed up to 2 big compilations this year including ‘Ibiza Underground’ from CR2 and ‘Toolroom Ibiza 2017 Vol.2’.
