Since Jeremy first release on his label Vivrant in December of 2015, the imprint has seen nine out of its fourteen EPs make #1 on Beatport. Parallel to the label’s growth, the founder has seen his own profile ascend closer and closer to the top of the game.
When it rains it pours, they say, and the birth of Vivrant has allowed for incredibly artistic growth, and brought Jeremy a career-first residency at esteemed LA nightclub Sound, opened the door to host multiple sold out label showcases across the globe, an invitation to Ultra’s Resistance night at Privilege alongside Sasha & Digweed, Art Department and Dubfire and key festival plays, such as Baum Park in Colombia, Big Burn in Turkey, Labyrinth Open in Croatia, Pleinvrees in Holland and Extrema Outdoor in Belgium to mention a few.
The label’s had an unusually rapid chart ascent with remixes and original work from, other than Olander himself, Henry Saiz, Tim Engelhardt, Finnebassen, Khen, Marino Canal, André Hommen, Ejeca and seen repeated support from dance music’s crème de la crème like Sasha, Pete Tong, Joris Voorn, Kölsch and John Digweed.
With an ever-growing demand from other esteemed outlets, Jeremy’s had several chart-topping dispatches on some of the most coveted labels on the scene. Examples range from Eric Prydz’s Pryda, who he also recorded a shortlisted BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix with, Spanish power-house Suara, microCastle, major Atlantic Records, UK behemoth Anjunadeep and John Digweed’s Bedrock, where he released the ‘Last Dance’ EP together with Knee Deep In Sound cohort Cristoph. The EP went straight to #1 on Beatport and was one of Bedrock’s best-selling releases of 2017.
His Suara track ‘Panorama’, part of the ‘Talespin’ EP, recently clocked in an impressive 365 straight days on the Beatport Top 100 Progressive chart and has blown passed 1.2 million streams on Spotify. His remix for Sailor & I has surpassed 1.3 million streams on Spotify, topped Beatport and became the best performing remix in the pack despite heavy competition.
2018 has had Olander’s touring schedule filled to the brim with notable shows at marquee clubs and festivals around the globe, including Sydney’s Electric Gardens, Montreal’s Stereo, London’s Steelyard, Labyrinth Open in Croatia, Woobar in Bali, Vivrant showcases at 1,100 capacity venues Jet in Buenos Aires and Kraken in Stockholm, a Berlin debut at Chalet as well as a slew of sold out Vivrant at Sea boat parties in Toronto, New York and Boston.
