I caught up with the good people at BassExplorer earlier this week to talk to them about my forthcoming release, this weekends Pressure Front party and the huge Innovation In The Dam event taking place in November.
You can check out what I had to say up on their website http://bassexplorer.com/dj-ollie-talks-innovation/
I also gave them my top 3 tracks of 2014 which you can check on their soundcloud page…
Pure Science are heading back to their home town of Maidstone on 28th November for the Black Friday Payback event at the amazing Wonderland venue, just a stones throw from where the legendary Atomics club used to be.
To celebrate this, the original Pure Science residents are doing a series of mixes in the run up to the event covering the full range of sounds played at Pure Science since the Atomics days. I kicked proceedings off with this 97-98 D&B mix packed full of all my favorite cuts from that era. If you enjoy the mix please share it with your friends…

Last night I was invited on to Miskin Radio in Dartford to chat with Kieran Poole, the stations champion for local music. We talked about a range of things including my Pressure Front events and my forthcoming release.
You can listen back to an edited version on the ‘Kieran Poole with‘ podcast here
Previews of tracks from my forthcoming release ‘Rise / Check 1‘ are now up on Soundcloud, please take 5 minutes to listen, leave a comment & share with your friends if you like them.
The single has already been championed on BBC Introducing and of course I’ve been playing it all over the place.
This release will be available to buy on 3rd November, I will be hosting the official launch party at Pressure Front on 25th October, come down & be part of it!
Everyone that the September event will no doubt agree, Pressure Front parties just keep getting stronger & stronger.
This month we have secured one of the most respected production partnerships in Drum and Bass, the Brookes Brothers! Following in the footsteps of Pendulum, The Brookes Brothers released their self titled debut album on DJ Fresh’s Breakbeat Kaos label spawning various top selling singles & regular playlist support on BBC Radio 1. In 2013 they signed to Viper Recordings and their single ‘Carry Me On’ quickly became Zane Lowe’s “Hottest Record in the World” as well as reaching #7 in the official UK Independent Charts. With a new album in the works we can guarantee their set at Pressure Front will be something special!!
On mic duties we have special guest MC Funsta, aka The Bar King! One of the scenes most charismatic MC’s Funsta is probably best know for his work with UNCZ (alongside Harry Shotta & Skibadee) and his hugely popular Bar:Rage mix CD series.
This event is also the launch party for my next single ‘Rise / Check 1‘. We know you’ve heard nothing but good things about our events, so if you love good quality D&B be sure to come join our raving family!

Catch me down there spinning a classic ‘Back To Hart Street’ set featuring all the tunes that were made big at Atomics back in the day.
As with all Pure Science events, this is sure to be huge. The first 500 online tickets will cost you less than £15 so make sure you get yours soon from https://www.deftickets.co.uk/events/pure-science-black-friday-payback-28-11-2014
