Artist: Andrea Oliva
Title: Time to Get EP
Label: Saved Records
Release: Out Now
Genre: Tech House
Andrea Oliva has been steadily building his superstar reputation since he burst onto the scene back in 2004 with his debut release on Joiu Records. He has since gone on to release some serious productions on huge underground labels, such as Viva Music, Cadenza and Defected. He is now back on Saved for a sixth time with his new, stomping, Time To Get EP.
The title track features an array of fantastically composed, retro sounds. You can immediately hear and feel the distinct sounds of the Roland drum machine series, thumping and grooving along to the deep, well-developed bassline, surrounded by an ocean of atmosphere. A gargantuan synth pattern comes in to hit the launch button and send us into spacial orbit! With tracks like this on offer, no wonder Andrea has established himself as a leading force in the vast expanse of the House music universe.
‘We All Love Chords’ drops in with the Acidic vibes from the word go. Andrea’s distinctive drum style combined with a host of gritty, acidic elements then start to strip away and are replaced by a breakdown of melodic twists which really grasp our attention, before bringing us back into the lusty drop our subconscious craves. I think it is safe to say, we really do love chords!
Saved Records have an enormous reputation and for very good reason! It’s great to see Andrea back on this fine label again for the 6th time since his label debut dropped back in 2009. You will want to grab this EP and ravage some dancefloors!
