Luca Olivotto launches new imprint, Small Great Things


Small Great Things is a new label from Luca Olivotto of Endless Music and Jean Philipp Oliver Viol. Its first release sees the Berlin-based artist deliver an EP of modern takes on classic deep house sounds.

The ‘Small Great Things EP’ kicks off with an eponymous cut with steadily unfurling pads leading to a breakdown of light, uplifting melodies while rooted to the floor with a jacking rhythm track and bottom end. Sometime Ibadan and B-Pitch producer DOS serves up a remix of ’Small Great Things’ under his given name, Francesco Mami, where the Italian producer turns in a warm but propellant version with loose, rattling rhythms and saturated stabs creating a nifty, rounded piece.

On the B-side, Olivotto opens with ’Swipe Out’, a gloriously detailed track that balances slick synths and gritty bass perfectly, allowing a beautiful vocal to shine through. We’re treated to a stirring song on closing track ‘Don’t Blame Me’, where soaring Detroit influenced synth pads and staccato melodies combine to create the perfect foil to the vocals.

Named to celebrate the little things in life, Small Great Things is a label to firmly keep an eye on. We premiere the lead track ‘Small Great Things’ for you today. The EP is out now, you can grab it here.

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.
