DEC 11 2012
" This takes quite a few years and many live trials to develop a vision of dub with such an almost eerie weightlessness and the most colorful twilight on this side of the Milky Way. "Thwis", effectively a continuation of the published ten years ago as well on his own label "Bodega", walked into consistently energized pace lightly through an airy, loose but precise-composed garden trail domesticated, however selected and dusted Dubsounds, and is there not a single time powerful, pithy or gloomy - Dubstep or other Tilli TM404 project: another universe. Embedded in this eternal gentle, friendly, alert relaxation, which does not yield even in the night haunted the middle part where they make themselves into shapeless shadow creatures noticeable of which one hears nothing else, carry the vocals of Carolyn Honey Child Coleman who on three songs guest is a warm philosophical transcendence. And where the sun is already up, blow again house and jazz sounds over the water over before we dive into dreamless sleep. A gorgeous drive. "

LOVERS BASS ROOF MUSIC!
THWIS Dj Olive featuring Honeychild coleman. release date april 2 2013 the Agriculture
THWIS is a warm bass journey through the untravelled back streets of brooklyn's underground future dub landscape. Though you can hear the rootsy lovers feel THWIS is not a derivative dub record but a truly original reflection from one of brooklyn's loved underground producers. THWIS follows in the footsteps of Olive's classic Bodega release and his work with New York's legendary electronic trio We(TM). There is little distortion on the bass and the kick is soft and warm making for a velvety sunrise vibe through out. The snare is surprisingly absent but then suddenly shows up like an old friend. Smokers Delight mixed with Boards of Canada mixed with Rhythm and Sound, THWIS puts its arm around your shoulder and walks you through the party with a calm inviting smile, making your body wander around the unicorn bass while the vintage analog synth tickles your head..
From 1995 to 2008 DJ Olive worked on three voyages of beatless electronic warmth he calls "sleeping pills". The first called Sleep was assembled in September 2001as a mixtape for NYC friends who couldn't sleep. It was meant to be listened to as quietly as possible and act more like cozy company than music. These sleeping pills were released on Australian label ROOM40, with Olive's second sleeping pill Buoy being the first release in 2004 followed by Sleep in 2006 and ending with Triage in 2008. Triage was also presented as a four room installation at the Whitney Biennial that year. Balm is a collection of all the songs used on DJ Olive's three sleeping pills. They are different versions, out takes, alternate takes, lost and found songs, brother and sister to the ones which appear on the sleeping pill mixtapes. There are also a few extra songs which almost made it on the sleeping pills included here.
