Biography of Antonio Olivieri
Antonio Olivieri, born in Italy, is a passionate music lover. Exhausted by the mainstream philosophy after some experiences with major Italian labels such as Saifam Group, Antonio moved to Berlin in 2008 to fulfill his philosophical view on modern electronic music.
At this point he had already left pure dj-ing and put his focus on performing live sets to convey a genuine live-feeling to the audience. The audible result is a dancefloor journey through Funk, Tech-House and a tasty mix of solid grooves and extraordinary melody sequences.In the past Antonio surely proved that he is a capable and highly skilled actor, touching different moods and styles of house music with some excursion into deep and techno. Listening to his music, it is not hard to notice his aptitude for melody, which is probably an imprinting residue of Antonio’s education on classical guitar over many years.
Latest vinyl and digital releases are on “LustundFreu.de”, “Darkroom Dubs”, and newly on “Steyoyoke”. Another EP worth mentioning is surely “Noton” with the Belgian label “LiftYourHeadUp” (an unconventional approach on classical guitar recordings and nasty, basic rhythms).
Antonio’s belief in concrete and emotional music prevails, as a statement in opposition to library based arrangements and the aesthetic crisis happening today.
You can find Antonio performing his live-sets mainly in well-known and ongoing locations in Berlin.
