16. November 2011

The past 3 years have seen Oliver$s name gradually build to a recognizable staple in house music. This Berlin born and based producer has gained acknowledgment through a series of solid releases on labels such as Made To Play, Grand Petrol and Front Room Recordings. Remix credits can be found amongst the most famed independents; including Greco Roman, Rekids and Exploited as well as majors: Polydor and Ministry of Sound.

He first began turning heads in 2009 through his releases ‘Whatcha Gonna Do’ and ‘You Got It’ both on Made To Play. An artist EP, also on Made To Play named ‘I Hope’, later followed this. He was fully welcomed into the family when asked to mix the Made To Play compilation, which received a welcome response from press and clubbers alike. Production credits have undeniably merged into aspects of touring, as he also embarked on a US tour alongside label head Jesse Rose and Riva Starr to promote the Scion release “A Night at Made to Play”. Another prominent addition to his rise has been his bi monthly residency at the famous Panorama Bar in Berlin, representing Made To Play for their label showcase. Demonstrating his skills not only lie in production but similarly in Live and DJ sets.

2011 has without doubt been a turning point for Oliver$, his remix of the top ten track from Aloe Blacc ‘I need a dollar’, gained respectable coverage amongst the online community, which was quickly followed by his number 1 Beatport track ‘Doing Ya Thang’, released on Play It Down; Made To Play’s sister label. ‘Doing Ya Thang’ remained at the top of the charts for an astounding 5 weeks, and has continued to sit in the top ten since; it also sold a staggering 12,707 units (to date). The track has been played by producers across the board and has catapulted Oliver$ into a new league. It is clear there are exciting times ahead for this prominent Berlin house producer, who is gaining recognition across the world as his unique style of House continues to grow in popularity.
