317 – Andrea Oliva


Many of the worlds best DJ’s are the artists who fall in love with electronic music at an early age and the truly great ones are the ones who maintain that same level of teenage infatuation with the scene throughout their lives. So with that in mind we’re delighted to welcome Andrea Oliva to present this weeks guest podcast mix as his passion for the music is undeniable. Since teaching himself how to mix aged 13 after being inspired by the older kids at his youth club Andrea quickly established himself as one to watch and by the time he was 17 he had secured bookings at all of his native Switzerland’s top clubs; before becoming resident DJ at three of them – Terminus, Pravda, and Pacha Zurich. From here on out it was onwards and upwards for Andreas, hosting parties across Switzerland and before long his reputation for putting on brilliant club nights had soon spread across the continent, all the way to Ibiza, where Andrea was invited to play regularly at Space for their club night In Bed With Space. Productions followed next, with Andrea  releasing tracks with some of the scenes coolest labels from Viva Music to Saved Records, Be As One and Cadenza Lab. Now a fully fledged member of Luciano’s Cadenza crew we think this exclusive mix he delivered from the Ushusia opening party was one of the highlights of our time spent on the White Isle for the start of the summer and has certainly got us looking forward to catching him at Vertigo Festival soon!

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
