As the proud protégé of Eric Prydz, Jeremy Olander has raised the bar substantially high for 2012. But in a stern digression from his uplifting peak time stylings, the Swedish producer drops his Progressive hallmarks to unite with Adam Beyer’s Drumcode imprint as formative Techno presence Dhillon.
Joning Henrik B as one of the two artists to have balanced signings to both Pryda Friends and Drumcode over the years, ‘Layerleaf’ makes for a quality addition to the labels latest ‘A-Sides’ compilation. But with mechanical rhythm and a worthy extension of his talents for crafting intricate melodies, this transition to the realms of gritty Techno acts as an impressive arrow to the bow of one of Sweden’s more promising talents on the ascent.
