Ever since emerging from brooklyn with his band WE™ in the mid '90's DJ Olive has been dropping his under the radar original brooklyn dub around the world.
The result is Olive's new record THWIS Featuring Honeychild Coleman's soulful voice on three tracks and Olive's playful analogue synth warming up some bass lovers rhythms
" 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..
Live in Tasmania
"HEAPS AS" Live in Tasmania, 2006 on the Agriculture
was recorded during two live shows in Australia may 05
while i was on tour: one in Hobart, Tasmania and the
other in Perth, Western Australia. This is the down home
happy go lucky feel of sunrise future funk on a roof top
in Brooklyn with all your positive smiling friends dancing
in your arms around the hibachi.
"BODEGA", 2003 on the Agriculture DJ Olive drops his first solo full length, "Bodega", a fast paced continuous mix of 17 ass shaking tracks that sound like they were scraped off old funk and dub 7"'s. This is a new gritty sound best described as hanging out behind a Brooklyn bodega with drums, horns, dancehall rhythms, and passing jeep bass while folks woop and holler. "Bodega" is an example of Olive's beat writing skillz, both funky and filthy but never clich? or easily definable. We could say dub, dancehall, roof musik, downtempo, latin funk, and breakbeat, but we would still only be dancing around the highly original sound of these sneaky booty rhythms. Unlike most continuous mix records, "Bodega" is the sound of a dj wildly mixing it up while never losing the groove.
