To say that I’m a fan of Jeremy Olander would be putting it mildly; I think he sits at the forefront of modern progressive house and techno, and his recent high-profile work with Eric Prydz is only the tip of the iceberg. His newest release is the upcoming four-track Goliath EP, and LessThan3 has the exclusive first listen of one of its tracks, Bayhert.
Much like his former mentor, Jeremy is well-known among his fans for producing a plethora of tracks but only releasing a trickle to the public, choosing instead to unleash his unreleased gems during live sets. Bayhert first popped up on one of his Vivrant Radio podcasts way back in November 2013, but now we finally have it. The track is a tough and edgy number that skirts the line between techno and progressive, twisting and turning with a swirling and relentless energy. It’s almost custom-built for dark and grimy dancefloors, which fits well with Olander’s new “lo-fi” event series, set to debut in a defunct bomb shelter May 15 in Stockholm.
The Bayhert EP is out now via microCastle, home to Guy J, Henry Saiz, and 16 Bit Lolitas. The EP includes three original productions alongside the first-ever official remix on an Olander track, courtesy of Marc Marzenit. Like his previous EP, Jackie, which landed the top spot on the Beatport Top 100, expect Goliath to make a smash.
