We are so excited to FINALLY announce we have confirmed a date for Andrea Oliva at Muzik on Friday 7th Oct. If you are unsure why we are so ecstatic simply watch this video from his summer residency at ANTS, Ushuaia.
The journey of Andrea Oliva from his initial introduction to dance music to becoming a fast rising DJ talent is an organic one. Beginning at just 12 years old, Andrea was exposed to the sounds he would grow to love by a family member who was also a musician. Taking these sounds, he learnt to DJ at 15, worked in a record store, built an incredible collection of the most upfront promos and white labels from Europe and beyond, and very soon secured bookings at Switzerland's top clubs leading to residencies at Terminus and Pravda - all of which led him ultimately to the front door of some of the worlds biggest underground record labels as well as to a pivotal residency at Ushuaïa Ibiza for ANTS.
As he grew up, Andrea’s passion for music also saw him team up at an early age with local club kid and owner of Basel’s Nordstern - Agi Isaku – a connection that he has maintained through to this very day. They went on to throw sold-out ‘Banditz’ parties across Switzerland, and the reputation of both these and Andrea's legendary all night DJ sets soon took him across the continent and all the way to Ibiza when he was first invited to DJ at Space. It was here also that he debuted his first release in 2004 on Swedish imprint Joia Records and, as he began to forge his own sound, he started releasing tracks on Viva Music, Saved Records, Be As One, Hideout, and Cadenza.
Supporting Andrea will be Carlo Gambino…..
With a DJ career that spans over two decades, Carlo has played at many of the UK’s biggest and best loved club nights and
beyond - ‘Back to Basics’ (Leeds), ‘Sankeys’ (Manchester), ‘The Archers’ (London), ‘Transform’ (Derby), and ‘Sonido’ (Leicester)
to name but a few.
His strong credentials as a forward-thinking producer have also also seen his releases receive widespread support from industry
heavyweights, including Jamie Jones, Mark Jenkyns, Droog, Moodymanc, Justin Harris, PBR Streetgang, Denney, Ceri, him self her, Spektre, Adam Shelton, and Rob Small.
Carlo's first release was on New York label, Blunted Funk, under the Hoodlums guise with fellow Leeds DJ/ producer Euan
Mitchell. A remix then followed on Slovenian label 'Papstec', and then a full EP on Polish label 'Look Ahead'. After several other
releases it was in 2010 that saw the start of something special - Carlo got the break he needed after the highly-respected 3am
Recordings label signed him for a 3-track EP launch.
On the back of that break, Carlo gained momentum and produced several more tracks for 3am, including the label’s 50th
anniversary release. Various strong releases have followed, which have led to a rapid increase in demand for Carlo's original and remix work globally.
Carlo has seen tracks released on labels such as Bullet:dodge, Freche Fruchte, Click Therapy, Svogue Muziq, Gooseneck Records, Area38, Evasive, Electronique and Jamie Jones’ label of the moment, Hot Waves.
Completing the line up will be Muzik resident Lee Freeman
