SATURDAY 7TH SEPTEMBER
OPHELIA OPIUMIZED PRESENTS OLIVIA DAWN
A skilled DJ, producer and violinist in her own right, Olivia’s innocently quirky, wild yet always elegant musical style covers a wide sonic range, from disco to house to pulsing techno. Heavily influenced by her classical and jazz background as well as the early sounds from labels such as Innervisions, Running Back, Disco Halal, Compost, Permanent Vacation and Ninja Tune, the art behind her performance lies not simply in her ever-evolving track selection, but also in the ability to turn even the most eclectic underground tracks into instantly accessible dance floor hits by adding her own meticulously arranged live violin and vocals. Seemingly part of the track, Olivia blends melodies and rhythms effortlessly into her set, giving her a unique edge that stuns every crowd she plays for.
Olivia cut her teeth playing extensively around Asia where she warmed up for international DJs including Yokoo, Rampue, Jeremy Olander, Agents of Time, Aeroplane, Jasper James, Dave Seaman, Paul Oakenfold, David Mayer, Royksopp, Doorly etc. Her sets stood out not only for her refusal to be boxed into one single genre, but also because Olivia improvises effortlessly on her violin in styles ranging from classical, Arabic, jazz to oriental and sings live. Olivia composes her own music at home in a small bedroom studio on Ableton Live. She uses a mixture of analog and digital gear, as well as combining live instruments with sampling.
Having gained respect in both the jazz and classical realms and been highly sought after as a songwriter (previously for PeerMusic Spain) and session player in the studio, She has recorded vocals for TIME (Sapiens/FR) and strings for Eagles & Butterflies, Casey Driessen (Bela Fleck & the Flecktones) and Latin Grammy award-winning producer Javier Limón. Her latest release BIRD (in collaboration with TIME & Kiko Franco) was listed on Spotify Brasil’s Top 50 viral chart for a week. Her first single will be released on March 27 as part of Reptile Dysfunction’s 2019 compilation for Miami Music Week, where she will make her US debut alongside Doorly, Krystal Klear, Tiga and others.
