The return of a live local favourite…

“Quality will find it’s way” – five words that are on all Oliver Schories’ platforms in place of bio’s, descriptions and comments. Five simple words that give you an idea of Oliver’s mantra, and that’s to let the music do the talking. Oliver’s discography features five studio albums and over thirty releases, adding to the list is his most recent EP ‘Ohm’, which was released merely days ago. The four-track EP features two originals and two remixes courtesy of Ramon Tapia and Gorge. On top of that, last year Oliver was picked to mix the next instalment of Global Underground’s revered Nubreed series.

With such a broad discography, Schories has taken the next natural step for any artist with a broad library and intuitive mind, and that’s to bring a live aspect to his performance. Last year Oliver’s live show took Melbourne and Sydney by storm and this year won’t be any different.

“In times where electronic music often tends to sound static and soulless, Oliver Schories is one of the few producers able to translate emotional intensity into pads and patterns. Stunning from beginning till end.”

Among the latest wave of promising producers with a penchant for deep and emotive techno is Hamburg-based Oliver Schories. What started as 2012s one-to-watch artists and a new favorite for clubbers who like their techno grooves organic and melodic, with thick fuzzy synthesizers, reverb fx, powerful drum patterns and lots and lots of emotion emerged to one of the most booked DJs and Live-Acts of Germany.

After a string of releases for labels such as Kollektiv Turmstrasse’s Musik Gewinnt Freude, Parquet Recordings and his own started own imprint “der turnbeutel” (releases & Remixes from Joris Delacroix, Dan Caster, AKA AKA, Lexer, Rodriguez Jr, Daso, Einmusik, Wankelmut, Rampue, Fairmont,etc.), his second Album „Exit“ was released in March 2013. Followed by a series of high class remixes on Labels such as Stil vor Talent Katermukke and Get Physical, an EP on Noir Music was the closing highlight of 2013.

Charted and supported by Jamie Jones and a number of other internationally recognized DJs and producers he started his second imprint called ‘SOSO’ in early 2014 with his brand new EP called ‘The Soulwalker’, followed by a number of top class releases throughout the year. 2014 was the most busy and successful year for Oliver. With remixes and collaborations for and with The Acid, Thomas Schumacher, Joris Delacroix, Stereo Express & AKA AKA and Dan Caster (Nouvelle Future) he also delivered the best selling Beatport track for Oliver Koletzkis’ #1- voted label Stil vor Talent.

In late autumn 2014 he released his teaser-EP ‘Noise Ball’, a massive 8-track EP with remixes from Format:B and more as a glimpse for his third longplayer ‘Fields without Fences’ which was released in 2015. Continuing his writing and releasing addiction, Schories’ 4th album ‘Relatively Definitely’ was let out into the world in 2016, and now 2 years later, his 5th studio album ‘Blitzbahn’ has just been released.
