When he first discovered house-music hits such as Benny Benassi's "Satisfaction," Jeremy Olander was too young to enter clubs. "I think that's why I'm more into the dark side of house music because that's what I started to listen to first," he says.
Now 24, the Stockholm resident is part of the exclusive Pryda Records roster spearheaded by Swedish genius producer Eric Prydz. Early releases "Riots" and "Fairfax" were among the label's biggest Beatport sellers in 2011, and Olander continues to ride that momentum on his latest singles, "Petroleum" and "Let Me Feel."
Olander and his sidekick/label mate Fehrplay recently embarked on the second leg of the first Pryda Friends Tour, with 11 dates in the U.S. and Canada. They'll play Orange County on Thursday, Oct. 3 at the EDM haven Sutra; expect an intimate show of big pro-gressive hits and deep techno vibes. "I really like a small club where you can feel connected with the crowd," says Olander.More »
