I'm not sure what I was doing at 17 but it sure as hell wasn't producing tracks like Herman Olvik, aka OLWIK
. Beautiful, intricate, moving, and dare I say, Alesso-esk, OLWIK knows exactly how to emotionally move people with sounds. His background in music theory provides him with the knowhow to fashion absolutely beautiful melodies...and my god does he put that to good use.
With the biggest stages in the world clearly in his sights, OLWIK masterfully crafts progressive house tunes that somehow, almost effortlessly, breath new life into a genre that has largely become stale since about 2012. With big distorted kicks and 'Animal-esk' upper register percussive sounds reigning supreme, it's awesome to see someone cut through the noise and show that at the end of the day, a drop is fun, but a melody is moving. Well done.
At only 17 the sky's the limit for OLWIK. His initial offerings on soundcloud have been fantastic...from the remix of Pendulum's - 'The Island
' to his original Infinitude
, his undeniable talent shines through in every track. It will be a treat to see him climb the ranks considering how relatively unknown he is at the moment. It's our hope we can help speed that process along.
