Jeremy Olander

Looking in the rear mirror, Olander got his start eight years ago on Eric Prydz’s Pryda Friends imprint. He went on to put out an unprecedented seven releases with Prydz, play New York City’s Madison Square Garden and record a BBC Essential Mix that was shortlisted as one of the best of the year.

Born in Fairfax, VA in America to a Swedish father and an Indian mother, Jeremy was brought up in Stockholm and become exposed to the city’s small but passionate electronic scene in his early teens. With role models in the likes of Adam Beyer, Cari Lekebusch and Joel Mull leading the charge, Jeremy found sources of inspiration at defunct legendary club Grodan Cocktail Club among Stockholm techno royalty, as well with Michael Jackson, Elvis Presley, Berry Gordy, Shigeru Miyamoto and east coast hip-hop.

His deep and emotionally charged style aside, true to his Swedish electronic music heritage, Jeremy also masters the craft of driving, drum-oriented techno under his enigmatic Dhillon monicker. With multiple tracks on fellow Swede Adam Beyer’s Drumcode label, one of the most coveted in the world, Olander displays his near uncanny breadth as a producer.

Thomas Schumacher

Thomas Schumacher still burns with curiosity. The Berlin- based DJ and producer makes light of his status as one of the most enduring, versatile artists in electronic music. “What I love about Techno is that it demands that you question yourself, reinvent yourself.”
Thomas Schumacher is always pushing his own boundaries. “The art of being relevant,” he says, “Is to forget what you know.” In his early days as an artist, he had to learn how to physically create the sounds he heard in his head. Now, as a virtuoso, the challenge is to use his breadth and depth of musical knowledge to convey profound emotion. “Techno is not just a tool to make people dance,” he says. “It is a very personal, intimate way of expressing myself.”
