Jeremy Olander
Since bursting onto the scene in 2011, DJ, producer and Vivrant label owner Jeremy Olander has been described as the saviour of the true progressive style once made famous by Sasha and John Digweed. His deep, infectious and atmospheric productions have resurrected the genre, receiving the stamp of approval from the forefathers mentioned above, as well as Henry Saiz, Guy J, Pete Tong, Finnebassen, Davide Squillace, Hernan Cattaneo and Dubfire to name a few.

In late 2015, Olander founded Vivrant. Now, almost two years into its existence, the label has become one of the most exciting and forward-thinking in recent memory. With a clear vision and well-crafted profile, 7 of 8 of its EP releases has made it to #1 on Beatport.

With a steady stream of peer and fan support, it’s clear as day the label’s sound has filled a void. Described by Olander as a creative refuge for himself and others, Vivrant is already home to established artists in the likes of Henry Saiz, Finnebassen and Jamie Stevens, as well as to new, emerging talent such as Khen, Eekkoo, Charlie Thorstensson, Andre Hommen and Tim Engelhardt.

2017 has undoubtedly been his best year yet. Musically, he realised a long time dream with the release of the celebrated debut EP ‘Last Dance’ on John Digweed’s Bedrock alongside Knee Deep In Sound mainstay Cristoph, he reached a milestone with his tenth Vivrant release preceded by multiple Beatport #1 releases and debuted on the legendary Anjunadeep with his ‘Crossed’ EP.
Bonsai
Bonsai
The practice of bonsai has existed in Asian culture for thousands of years, and its significance runs much deeper than merely pruning a tree. The true art behind growing a bonsai lies in self-exploration and the creation of a miniature version of one's own universe. Such is also the case with dance music for Ryan Hubert and Tim Glusko, the duo behind the DJ project Bonsai. Hailing from opposite ends of the United States, Bonsai's story has its roots in the taboo techno basements of the northeast and the clandestine desert raves of the west coast, with a common passion for music that explores the evolution of darkness.

After connecting in San Diego over their affinity for techno and dark progressive music, their evolution from fans and clubgoers to founders and creators was only natural, and thus Bonsai was conceived. Like its namesake, Bonsai has slowly begun to expand its reach through working with Fortitude Collective, an LA-based independent record label, and playing live sets at notable venues such as Flash in D.C. and Spin in San Diego.

The duo's musical influences and inspirations echo clearly in their music; a Bonsai Sonic Session is akin to a self-exploratory pilgrimage as they coax the listener from the rolling waves of progressive house and into the vast, mysterious and formidable world of dark techno. It is a journey that devoted dance music fans must take once or multiple times in their lives, and the Bonsai duo is here to be your guide.
