For our 41st release on Area Remote we’re excited to welcome back
Born in Venice, OLDERIC is synonymous with the new generation of musical talent in the new Italian underground scene. Truly a versatile producer, he loves nothing more than to fine-tune and spice up modern with old school house, mashing melodic grooves with clubbing tech house.
His signature sound of full-on drum rhythms, phat bass lines and energy has led him to release on label greats such as Saved Records, Bitten, Terminal M and once again on Area Remote.
UTOPIAN: Inspired by the energy, the sunshine and the crazy people on the white isle, Olderic returns to bring the Ibiza heat to Area Remote by going loco with the latino loop, letting it flow and widen across spicy rhythms and vocal melodies. It’s not just perfect, it’s Utopian!
UTOPIAN (Alex Tepper’s Long Ride to Deadwood Mix): You may scratch your head upon hearing Alex Tepper’s name, but for sure you’ve heard some of the hundreds of releases that have been touched by his hands in almost 20 years in the business. Working under a variety of pseudonyms or as collaborator to some of the biggest names in house music, his releases have had everyone from Pete Tong to Kevin Saunderson heaping plaudits on them.
For his ‘Long Ride to Deadwood Mix’ he takes a powerful twist down the remix route retaining the vocal melodies but amplifying the cavernous drums to give it an urgent sense of foreboding, bolstered by a pumping kick.
UTOPIAN (Alex Tepper’s For The Hoople Heads Dub): Just like Al Swearingen’s language, this remix is strong and gloriously riveting. Just bounce!
