Come nightfall, Olof Dreijer from electro poppers The Knife swaps masks and spins as DJ Coolof. RA caught up with the man before his UK debut at Turnmills and peeked in his record bag.
But for Olof Dreijer, the production mastermind behind the duo, The Knife is not the only tool in his dark cupboard: come nightfall, he swaps FM synthesis for a record bag and spins as DJ Coolof. Sometimes dark, sometimes playful, Coolof has been spinning funky minimal techno around Europe for the two last years. Yet Knife fans be warned: as his management put it, "Don't expect any Knife tunes here, not even a vocal".
In a preview to his debut UK appearance alongside Hardfloor and Trevor Jackson at Together at Turnmills in London on June 24th, RA had a chat to DJ Coolof and a peek in his record bag.
