With his status in his home country growing, Andrea teamed up with the owner of Nordstern in Basel, Agi Isaku, and the duo were soon throwing sold out ‘Banditz’ parties across Switzerland. His reputation took him across the continent and all the way to Ibiza, where in 2004 he was first invited to DJ at Space.Andrea developed his production style under the likes of VIVa Music, Saved Records, Be As One and Cadenza, with two 2012 releases - the ‘Click Off’ EP on Cadenza and ‘Scene’ on Be As One - breaking into the Beatport top 10 downloads and leading to him becoming RA’ s most charted artist in February and March the following year.2013 continued to be an important year for Andrea, landing regular headline slots at ANTS in Ibiza - Ushuaia’s premiere underground party - something he maintains through to this day. Indeed the ANTS brand has itself gone on to tour the world, and Andrea ́s sets, which are synonymous with the ethos of the party, have rocked stages far and wide from Miami to Dubai, from Mexico to Argentina and from Croatia to the UK.After an incredible few years of production whilst gigging everywhere from Panorama Bar to Coachella, his reputation as a credible artist continued to grow further. His Beatport chart-topping remix of Luciano’s ‘Rise Of Angels’ made serious waves both on the Ibiza circuit as well as on an international level, and he had noticeable releases also on Moon Harbour, Defected and Suara. In 2015 Andrea decided to take on producing his debut LP. ‘4313’. Released via Objektivity, the album illustrated both Andrea’s willingness and ability to explore conceptual themes within his own carefully constructed house and techno framework. Centred around the promise of a ‘new age’ and produced with a mix of both live and software-based instrumentation, the album is a testament to Oliva’s continued desire to explore and experiment.By 2016, Andrea had cemented himself at the heart of Ibiza culture; he became one of seven all- night guests to regularly take over the Space Terrace for Elrow, made his Music On debut at Amnesia, all whilst maintaining his famed ANTS headliner commitments. His skill for crafting stand out sets attracted the attention of Pete Tong, who helped Andrea to make his Essential Mix debut with a set recorded live from Ushuaia. After an incendiary back-to-back between the two DJs at the All Gone Pete Tong Miami Music Week pool party earlier in the year, Andrea was also a natural choice to mix the All Gone Pete Tong Ibiza 2016 compilation alongside the influential broadcaster.Meanwhile, his underground credentials were further bolstered with his debut EP on Desolat, ‘Get Down’. Displaying a skill for creating tougher-edged tech to full effect, tracks from the EP were regularly heard being played out by DJs far and wide, with label boss Loco Dice hammering ‘Elephant’ in particular. This was followed by a killer release on Hot Since 82 ́s “Knee Deep” imprint entitled “Scream” - a track that became a summer anthem and was credited as one of Pete Tong ́s Essential new tunes as well as one of his top 10 tunes of the year. Shortly after Andrea unleashed the mighty ‘Vermona’ on Cuttin Headz, another Ibiza anthem with label heads the Martinez Brothers keeping it on constant rotation at DC-10 and virtually every DJ on the circuit hammering it far and wide.Throughout the past few years Andrea has continued with an everstrong release schedule, with EP’s released on Hot Creations, Desolat, Truesoul, Play It Say It, Saved, Moon Harbour, Relief, Rejected, Kaluki, 7Wallace, Rawthentic and Circus. Not forgetting of course his massive remixes of Thick Dick’s “Welcome to The Jungle” (SONDOS), Groove Armada’s “House with Me” (Snatch), Tiga’s “Woke” (Turbo) and Catz n Dogz “New Love” (Pets Recordings), all of which were supported right across the industry and each of which also became huge club anthems. His 2019 hit “My Way” on Play It Say It earned him yet another Essential New Tune crown on BBC Radio 1, and his remix of Brit Award Winner Tom Walker’s “Not Giving In”, which took Andrea’s production skills in a more eclectic direction, has already been hammered across radio and is scheduled for release on Sony’s Relentless Records label in the coming months. Performance wise, Andrea completed a solo headline “Andrea Oliva & Friends” residency at Ibiza’s newest superclub Hï Ibiza featuring a string of high profile guests, as well as maintaining an eye watering touring schedule including standout festival sets at Tomorrowland, A Summer Story, Sunrise, Dreambeach, Medusa, Sonus, Sunwaves, Kappa Futur and DGTL to name but a few plus tours across the globe including several high profile long haul stints across the US, South America, Asia and The Middle East . Other highlights include debut Boiler Room, Mixmag Lab and DJ Mag sessions, another B2B set and live broadcast with Pete Tong as part of the Radio One in Ibiza weekend, a second BBC Radio One Essential Mix and a return to the huge Zurich Street Parade where he performed on the main stage and which was attended by over a million people.Needless to say, Andrea ́s dedication to the underground scene has garnered him widespread support and his music is appreciated by a range of dance music luminaries. His incredible sustained work ethic and his love of the ever evolving scene means there’s no sign of this upward trajectory slowing down any time soon.LEFTWING:KODY - Since forming in 2012, Leftwing : Kody has gone on to become one of the UK’s finest exports. Both Mixmag and DJ Mag named Chris Adie and Jon Kong – the duo behind the music – as ones to watch a mere year after they paired up, with DJ Mag even nominating them for ‘Best Breakthrough DJ’ in their Best of British Awards. In the last year alone, they were named as Beatport’s #22 best-selling artist in 2018, as well as notching up releases on Desolat, Relief, Moon Harbour, Sola, Toolroom, Solid Grooves, Truesoul, Sony & Lost.It’s fair to say that Leftwing : Kody makes it look easy – a recent tweak to the name reflects the partnership that sees Chris and Jon sharing tour and studio duties, whilst retaining the sound which has propelled them to the top with Carl Cox, Jamie Jones, Loco Dice, Adam Beyer, Steve Lawler, Nic Fanciulli, Yousef, Green Velvet, Matthias Tanzmann, Hot Since 82 and Andrea Oliva all supporting their productions over the years. 2018 saw Leftwing : Kody hit dizzying new heights with their track, Snap Back, becoming Desolat’s best-selling track ever, their Sony-signed remix of Kelis’ iconic ‘Milkshake’ was a top ten hit and their biggest release of the year, and over 300,000 fans on Spotify streamed their releases a million times in over 65 countries. Throw in two Beatport Top 10s, three Beatport Top 20s and four Beatport top 30s, and it’s easy to see why all eyes are on them as we move into 2019.Leftwing : Kody was featured on the line up of the last ever Warehouse Project event at its iconic Store Street home on NYE 2018, a fitting end to a year that saw them debut in the US with an eight date tour that included CRSSD Festival and Goldrush Festival, and appear on lineups for Forbidden Forest Festival, Abode In the Park, Fabric in London, EGG in London, Mas Vida in Dubai, Privilege in Ibiza, and Kaluki in Amsterdam.Looking ahead, 2019 looks set to continue the momentum that was built in 2018, starting with a set at the legendary Studio 338 with Loco Dice in January for the Desolat label party, and then releases lined up on Circus, Moon Harbour, Lost, and a killer track on Toolroom that will be dropping in April and is already the subject of hype behind the scenes.TOMMY FARROW - Founder of Syko Disco, Tommy Farrow has no doubt blown up in the underground scene making a name for himself in Sheffield. He’s also been playing in various venues in Ibiza over the summer in clubs such as Octan and Ibiza Rocks bar. He’s seen support artists such as Eats Everything, Camelphat, Hot Since 82 and many more. Expect very exciting music from him on this specula night.Doors open at 11pm and closes at 6am1 Burgess Street, Sheffield, S1 2HF
