Jonas Fehr has had a whirlwind 2012; a year which has put him on the map as a producer & DJ star of years to come. Since bursting onto the scene in 2009 with club bomb ’Meow’ on Ministry of Sound, Fehrplay’s sounds has matured with a new sophisticated funk ever present, but whilst still maintaining his trademark, epic cinematic film score-esque breakdowns.
In early 2012, the 24 year old Norwegian signed to Eric Prydz’s legendary Pryda Friends label. It was a decision that would elevate his career to new heights as he joined the prestigious roster, which has featured some goliaths of dance music including Axwell, Paolo Mojo, Felix Da Housecat and Sebastien Leger.
As well as new break through tracks and remixes this year, such as “Incognito”, his summer smash “Nightride” and his recent remix of Eric Prydz “Every Day”, he has come into his own as top flight DJ. This summer saw his play multiple dates in Ibiza, as well as the UK festivals, SW4 and Creamfields and make his UK super club debut at Ministry of Sound for the legendary Gallery nights along side Arty.
His music is receiving amazing support from a who’s who of dance music, with regular plays on Pete Tong’s legendary BBC Radio 1 show, and in the sets of everyone from Prydz, to Avicii.
2013 is already set to see the continued success with further singles on Pryda and Above & Beyond’s legendary Anjuna Imprint.
With his fantastic tune selection and flawless mixing skills. It is easy to see why Prydz picked Fehrplay as his one to watch.
There is a reason why Eric Prydz, one of the world’s most highly regarded and respected DJ and producer in dance music history, signed Jeremy Olander to a three-release deal with his coveted Pryda Friends label, and later asked him to accompany him on his tour.
From the first demo, Prydz knew there was something special about the Stockholm native. For years, he’d been on the receiving end of music from hopeful producers, but Jeremy was to become the first to truly make an impression on the selective Swede.
Jeremy’s smart, eclectic and emotional progressive style of house is a novelty in its own right, and his melodically infused techno productions, under the pseudonym Dhillon, has lit up the underground techno scene with consistent support from acts such as Adam Beyer, Nicole Moudaber, Alan Fitzpatrick and Joel Mull. His track ‘Layerleaf’, released on one of the most inluential modern techno labels out there; Drumcode, effectively made him one of a mere two producers to have released on both Drumcode and Pryda Friends.
Starting the new year off with a much anticipated return to Prydz’s label with the infectious ‘Let Me Feel’, Olander is undoubtedly on the ascent to the next stage in his career. After the record first being unveiled on Prydz’s own EPIC Radio Podcast, its seen exceptional radio and club support from the likes of Eric Prydz, Tiesto, Sander Van Doorn, Annie Mac, Adrian Lux, Eddie Halliwell, Axwell, Above & Beyond, Pete Tong and more, with the latter playing the track a total 6 times across his shows on BBC Radio 1 in the UK and Evolution Radio in America. Less than a week after its release, ‘Let Me Feel’ made the overall Beatport Top 10, Olander’s first, and is already dubbed by many as the tune of 2013.
Additionally, making the Top 10 on Billboard’s ‘Next Big Sound’ list, hinting at plans on starting his very own label and radio show as well as sitting on a treasure chest of unreleased records, Jeremy has thus far only scratched the surface of what’s due to become another amazing year in the career of a man well in line to become a permanent upper echelon fixture in the world of electronic dance music.
