O.live.R has been active as a DJ for 10 years! Socialised by Britpop, Indie and Rock ‘n Roll he and his partner DJ Eckhard organized their first party in 2002 in a club named „Im Keller“ in Dortmund!! The project „Take It Or Leave It“ was really successful and one of the reasons for these glorious nights have been that Indie and Rock ‘n Roll Music was pushed with the debut-records of The Strokes, Kaiser Chiefs, Bloc Party etc….
As a result of these events the two of them got guest performances at other clubs like the Rose Club in Cologne and many more!!
Just one year later every little club or bar organised its own little „Indie“-Party and it became more and more boring and was not special any longer …. Thus the consequence was to stop „Take It or Leave It“ – following the concept’s name – and after a little break DJ Eckhard and O.live.R came back in 2005 with an new Club-Night called „Rubber Sounds“! It was a mixture of Rave-Tunes and good old Indie-Rock which gave these parties a new and fresh touch!!
During the years 2007 and 2008, O.live.R started a new DJ-project with DJ axe.l!! ‘Deep Thought Soundsystem’ was born and the first public appearance has been the „Come As You Are“-parties at VRSTCK-Club in Dortmund!! The new influence was Dubstep and the two DJs combined it with electronic-minimal-beats…
Apart from that, they brought to life a rather calm event named „Flounge“ in the summer of 2008! It was O.live.R`s first collaboration with DJ Gardener of Pleasures, DJ axe.l and DJ Badre….The result was as follows: Tents packed with guests, praise and many sunny days accompanied with lounge-beats!!
In 2008, O.live.R became an official member of the Globalibre DJ-Team and functions both as the main author of the Globalibre-Blog and as the musical gold-digger! He is very interested in pop culture and the development of club-culture!! Due to the high noise level of his DJ-Sets and the thick bass waves with tropical-ghettobass-flavour, he is the tamer of international dance floors!
