10 tracks to expect at Jeremy Olander’s open to close set at The Great Northern, San Francisco

The Swedish Bedrock, Last Night On Earth and Anjunadeep artist and Vivrant label founder Jeremy Olander is on a grand ascent. In 2018, the chart-topping melodic house and techno virtuoso played no-table shows at Printworks in London, Chalet in Berlin, Sydney’s Electric Gardens, Montreal’s Stereo, Labyrinth Open in Croatia, Pleinvrees in Am-sterdam and The Great Northern in San Francisco. He also put on several label showcases with his label in Buenos Aires, Stockholm and introduced his Vivrant at Sea boat party series in Toronto, New York, and Boston, which all sold out.

In December, he released his Beatport chart-climber ‘Leftwoods’ EP on British dance music icon Sasha’s Last Night On Earth, home to La Fleur, Henry Saiz, Undercatt and Joel Mull.

He finished the year off with a tour across three continents and played the first-ever Cercle show in the Nordics. To date, the set has racked up close to 1 million views. In December, he put on a third sold-out Stockholm play in less than a year alongside with Diynamic’s Karmon, Maeve’s Baikal and new Vivrant signee MOLØ.

His musical offerings on Vivrant so far in 2019, the ‘Docks’ EP and single ‘Shogun’, has seen support by the likes of Diynamic’s Kollektiv Turmstras-se, Afterlife’s Kevin De Vries, Bedrock’s John Digweed, Watergate’s La Fleur, Sudbeat’s Hernan Cattaneo and more.

Most recently, Jeremy’s put out his mesmerising ’1024’ on HOSH’s Warung compilation, and debuted on M.A.N.D.Y.’s legendary Get Physical label with the ‘Kailash’ EP.

01. Jeremy Olander & MOLØ ’ID’ (Vivrant)

I made this track together with a young up-and-comer in Stockholm. Stay tuned for a release on Vivrant in the near future. She’s a killer in the booth and is developing to become a promising producer too.

02. Cornucopia ’Letter for Poly’ (Tale & Tone)

This one came out in 2017 but still works great. Beautiful melodies with soothing beats!

03. Khen ’Closing Doors’ (Anjunadeep)

Khen is great at creating those driving tracks which work wonders on dancefloors. This has been in my regular rotation ever since he first sent it to me.

04. Jeremy Olander ’Caravelle’ Marino Canal Remix (Vivrant)

A great one by my boy Marino! He has been on fire lately in the studio with a lot of fun projects in the pipeline. We also sat together in the studio earlier this year and came up with two tracks that I’ve been playing out a bit. Keep a lookout for em!

05. BOg ’Not A Coincidence’ (Hoito)

I’ve been playing this a lot over the past year! First time was during my Cercle set. A lot of people have been asking for it and now its finally out on Sascha Breamers Hoito.

06. Axel Boman ’1979’ (Pampa)

A real slow-burner from fellow swede Axel. This one works either super late or super early. Some great and subtle percussion work in there!

07. The Persuader ’What is the time, Mr Templar?’ (SVEK)

One of those evergreen songs. The legendary label SVEK put this out in ’97 but it’s still sounding fresh and relevant. Works great for me when I have those longer sets.

08. Jeremy Olander ’Leftwoods’ (Last Night On Earth)

Sasha is one of those artists who has stayed consistent for an impressive amount of time and someone I admire a lot. When I got the opportunity to do a project on his imprint, Last Night On Earth, I was really over the moon!

09. Locked Groove ’Dawn’ (KOMPAKT)

Killer track from a studio wizard. This one is from a couple of years ago but one I just discovered. I’m looking forward to welcoming him to the label in the future!

10. Rhode & Brown – ’Wave 100’ Mr Ho Remix (Slam City Jams)

Nice floating yet driving vibes in this one. It really takes you places. Builds a great atmosphere!
