After some time away, Oliver Dollar is back with his debut album showing off a wider breadth and depth of sound than ever before. The 14-track album is set for digital and streaming release on April 19th, with a 12” vinyl package to follow and remixes coming from Mousse T., Cassius and Junior Sanchez (dates pending).
If that isn’t enough, Oliver Dollar has announced a string of summer dates kicking off with his party in Miami on Saturday, 30th March where he’ll headline alongside Gene Farris, Harry Romero, Junior Sanchez, and more.
After something of a break, Oliver Dollar recently returned with four singles from the upcoming album. They came after more than ten years of inventive releases on the likes of Yoruba, Defected, Play It Down and Cajual Records, delivering along the way such seminal hits as ‘Doin’ Ya Thang’ and ‘Pushing On’ which were instrumental in putting Oliver on the map.
The refreshing full album has allowed the artist to use a longer format of expressing broader sounds away from the usual club vibe. With the album having been in the works for six years, it’s clearly a carefully considered piece of work that takes you on a mellow journey somewhere special. The LP is awash with great samples, off-kilter loops and an authentic sense of charm that draws on funk, soul, disco, and downtempo.
“I didn’t just sit down and write an album, I wrote the tracks when I felt the vibes, and collected them in a folder for the album. It was quite a journey but I’m really grateful that everything finally came together naturally without being forced.”
