Silius EP – the brand new three-track package from Swedish producer Jeremy Olander – is out now via long-standing, Berlin-based imprint Watergate Records.

Early in August, Olander’s summer single Murphy—the first new music he had released in more than a year—marked the start of his return to his Vivrant imprint. The melodic peak-time record garnered DJ support from the likes of Jimi Jules, Hunter/Game, John Digweed, Eelke Kleijn, Hernan Cattaneo, Lane 8, and Fideles, saw specialist radio support by BBC Radio 1, Kiss FM, Swedish Radio P3, Capital FM, FG Extra, as well as extensive editorial coverage from Spotify on playlists Open Air, Electronic Rising, New Music Friday, Altar, 4 AM Chillout, Beats of Tomorrow and more.

The 35-year-old Swede is back with his first EP project of 2022, which also serves as his debut on Watergate Records, a major German record label. The Berlin hotspot eventually partnered with a label imprint 6 years after launching its now-famous club more than 20 years ago. Since then, Watergate Records has been at the forefront of forward-thinking house and techno and has paved the way for artists such as Jimi Jules, Solomun, and Butch.

The Swedish artist’s sold-out spring and summer performances at prestigious clubs and festivals like The Bow in Buenos Aires, Sound in Los Angeles, Cercle Festival in Paris, and Village Underground in London have been a disaster thanks to the EP, which consists of two original songs and a remix of lead track Silius by Afterlife standout duo Alfa Romero.

Silius EP on Watergate

Silius, the album’s lead track, is a dark and sinister Olander record with a structure resembling a standard intro-style track. It has received early support from artists like Adriatique and demonstrates the producer’s versatility. With a delicate lead melody contrasted against viciously thumping kick drums and menacing FX detailing, it makes for an astounding listening experience that will surely become a staple surefire weapon at clubs and festivals alike in the fall and winter of 2022.

Jeremy’s “Silius” EP, which defies categorization into any particular genre, is a genuine genre-defying work that flouts conventions and retains a sense of surprise throughout. Infused with elements of epic movie scores, 90s trance, and a dash of Olander’s discernable Pryda heritage, the 35-year-old Swede continues to push the envelope and carve out his own stylistic niche that separates and elevates him as an artist.

There will be plenty of chances for fans to be mesmerized by Olander and his new music with additional high-profile releases for the winter and notable performances at City Hall in Stockholm, Palacio Alsina in Cordoba, and Piknic Électronik in Melbourne.
