There is a reason why Eric Prydz, one of the world’s most highly regarded and respected DJs and producers in dance music history, decided for Jeremy Olander to become the first ever artist to receive a multi-release deal from the selective Swede. He proved Eric’s insights correct as his first two releases were the label’s biggest Beatport sellers in 2011. Little surprise than that Prydz handpicked Olander and fellow Scandinavian Fehrplay to helm the inaugural Pryda Friends Tour, which kicks off in North America August 8.
‘Petroleum’ expands Jeremy’s poignant and deep progressive sound to new heights, and will sure to be heard in clubs and festivals throughout world, much like his March Beatport Top 10 hit ‘Let Me Feel'. His music has been supported by some of dance music’s most prominent DJs; legendary British tastemaker Pete Tong championed both ‘Fairfax’ and ‘Rypamont’ on his BBC Radio 1 for two consecutive weeks upon their release in 2011, and later invited Olander to be featured on his ‘15 Minutes of Fame’ segment later that year. Since then Olander's releases have graced the likes of Toolroom Records, Armada and Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat, and has been pushed by icons like John Digweed, all while Olander has concurrently nurtured his darker Techno alias Dhillon, which has seen releases on fellow Swedish legend Adam Beyer's label Drumcode.
Elaborating on his upcoming Pryda Friends release, Jeremy says:
"'The 'Petroleum' track first started out as a tool. I wanted to make something fresh, big and with emotional vocals that I could end my sets with. I premiered it a show I did in Stockholm with Above & Beyond earlier this year and people instantly started asking me about what track it was, which was a little but surprising since the vocals are Swedish", Olander says.
"I think that just goes to show that these particular vocals by Kent transcend any language barrier and simply just add an extra layer of emotion to the record", he continues.
"At that point I never thought it would actually see the light of day but a couple of weeks later I sent it to my friend Adrian (Lux), who's friends with Jocke, the singer in Kent, and he asked if he could pass it along to him. A couple of days later I heard from Jocke and we for a coffee to talk and I found that the entire band really liked the track and wanted to see it get an official release. With Kent being the legendary band that they are, releasing this track is such a great honor, " Olander finishes.
The ‘Petroleum’ release will be accompanied by the Pryda Friends Tour with label mate Fehrplay. Playing a mixture of back-to-back and individual sets, Olander and Fehrplay will play a very exclusive run of five dates kicking off August 9 in Los Angeles.
