Olé Koretsky is a New York City based Musician, DJ, and record producer. Koretsky hosted 'Jetlag Noir' (2011-14), a popular electronic music program on East Village Radio. Teaming up with Andy Rourke (ex-the Smiths), Koretsky is now part of alternative rock group JETLAG (NYC).
Olé Koretsky was born in the Soviet Union and raised by his mother in Brooklyn, NY. While attending E.B. Shallow Junior High, he borrowed a microphone and Hofner violin bass from a friend and began making demos on a dual cassette recorder using samples taken directly from the FM radio dial. In 1994, Koretsky upgraded to Yamaha MT4X recorder, Concertmate keyboard, BOSS DR110 drum machine, and began teaching himself guitar and music theory. In the late 90s, some of these four track recording caught the attention of New York DJ/Producer Mike Dextro. Dextro introduced Koretsky to MIDI sequencing, software production and DJing. In 2003 while DJing in Washington DC, Koretsky met British musician Andy Rourke. Koretsky and Rourke kept in touch and collaborated on several remixes over the years. They began writing material for the JETLAG project when Rourke relocated to New York City in 2009. During this time Koretsky continued to DJ, remix, and work as DJ/presenter on Daily Session Radio and East Village Radio. In April 2014, Koretsky and Rourke began collaborating with Irish vocalist Dolores O'Riordan.
