Balance Presents Vivrant


The Swedish Vivrant label founder, DJ, and producer joins the revered Balance Presents series. Since its inception in 2015, Jeremy Olander's label and event series, Vivrant, has become one of the most intriguing platforms for the melodic house and techno sound. With this long overdue project, Olander is bringing two discs of exclusive music from himself and friends. Includes individual tracks downloads and mixes.

Olander on the release: "Balance Presents Vivrant encompasses what the label sounds like in 2019 and beyond . . . 70% of the music is unreleased stuff from me that I've only played in my sets and music that would typically stay unreleased, or completely new stuff I've made specifically for this album . . . I approached the first side as I would the first few hours playing an open to close set at a club. The atmosphere and vibe are stripped down, the drum patterns are different from what I would play at peak time . . . The first three tracks are new originals under a new name I came up with for this compilation specifically. The fourth track is a remix I made of one of my older unreleased tracks called 'Dharma' that never ended up being released. After that is something Vivrant associate Marino Canal sent me, which is a collaboration with a friend of his called Miguel Payda that I felt fit perfectly into the mood. It's followed up by an incredible new Tim Engelhardt track called 'Timing'. Tim is one of the best, and most prolific producers of his generation, and including him on this project, was a given . . . The second side mimics more of a typical peak time set from me compressed down to just over an hour. This side has a few curveballs as well. I was really lucky to have some of the producers out there that I admire the most offer up unreleased music for the project, like La Fleur, Locked Groove and Ejeca. Sanna's 'Second Story' is a groovy stomper that brings a cool change of pace and contrast in the mid part of the mix before I transition back to some more melodic bits with Tim Engelhardt's second track called 'Papillon' . . . I also wanted this album to shine a light on some new up and coming talent, and that's reflected in the tracks from A Friend of Marcus and Carl Dern. Carl's track 'Eyes Up' has been a staple track in my sets lately..." Also features J.Singh and Dhillon.
