Producer/DJ duo Oliver have released their long-anticipated debut album, Full Circle, out now via Interscope Records. The album brings back their classic sound, commitment to aesthetic and technical skill that earned them the respect of their peers and a legion of die-hard fans that have been eager for their return.
The 15-track collection evokes the glamour, attitude and timelessness of music from ’70s & ’80s but with a forward-thinking modernity. The duo tapped a talented group of collaborators as well, including iconic hip-hop trio De La Soul, funk masterminds Chromeo, Sam Sparro, MNDR, Elohim, Yelle, Leon Else and Scott Mellis.
Drawn together in 2010 by a shared love of production, vinyl, vintage music gear, and modern art and design, Vaughn Oliver and Oliver “Oligee” Goldstein established their sonic prowess on EPs Dirty Talk(2012), Mechanical (2013), and Light Years Away (2014).
Their music – sleek, smart, and relentlessly propulsive – was embraced by Busy P, Justice, Destructo, French house legend Lifelike, and A-Trak, who released Mechanical and Light Years Away, plus the collaborative 2013 track “Zamboni,” on his venerable Fool’s Gold label.
While Oliver’s reputation rose with the surging force of the international electronic scene, the duo played mega-festivals with such titans as Zedd, Dillon Francis, and Chromeo, while their tracks became dance floor weapons in the underground venues of their home base of Los Angeles and beyond.
