Jeremy Olander shares long-awaited label album
After a decade of EPs, progressive house’s proper hero of the underground, Jeremy Olander‘s first full-length release has arrived. Balance presents Vivrant comes in mixed and unmixed variations, each featuring two hours of progressive and melodic house split into two sides. Olander, who founded the Vivrant label in 2015, calls on several label mates for original tracks, including La Fleur, Tim Engelhardt, Miguel Payda, and more. The bulk of the mix however consists of new tracks from Olander himself, including four songs under his new moniker J.Singh.
Olander describes the mix album in a post for Balance:
“I approached the first side as I would the first few hours playing an open to close set at a club. The atmosphere and vibe is stripped down, the drum patterns are different from what I would play at peak time. I hope it will be a nice fit for when youʼre getting ready to go out, come home from a night out, or just drive around in your car…
The second side mimics more of a typical peak time set from me compressed down to just over an hour. This side has a few curveballs as well. I was really lucky to have some of the producers out there that I admire the most offer up unreleased music for the project, like La Fleur, Locked Groove, and Ejeca…
This album has been the biggest undertaking of my career so far, and itʼs incredible to finally put it out there, and let it get a life of its own.”
Balance presents Vivrant is available now on digital and CD, and LPs will be available on January 24, 2020.
