SWE, Kitsuné

23 year old Swedish prodigy, Oliver Nelson started producing when he first heard D.A.N.C.E by Justice in 2007 (17 years old). Over the next 3 years he worked relentlessly until his first mix "Ce Jeu" by Yelle was born.

Justice may have been the trigger to move Oliver into producing electronic beats, but what really introduced him to music was his parents. Both his father and mother are avid music lovers. His father was in a band when he was young, playing keys and singing. Oliver states " There was always music playing in the house, in the car, literally wherever possible". This inspired Oliver to start playing drums. Then music school followed and the rest is history.

Oliver is part of the nu-breed of talent from Sweden and over the years he has crafted a very unique sound. Miixing effervescent synths and warm, fun melodies Oliver creates extremely rich productions. He's quickly earned such a reputation - his nu-disco remixes of Justin Timberlake's "Suit and Tie" and Naughty Boy's "La La La" have easily ushered him into the thriving yet competitive generation of remixers and beatsmiths who've taken the internet by storm.

Other stunning recent remixes from Oliver include the amazing take on Portland's "Deezy Daisy", the indie-pop fused Mikky Echo's "Kidz", Kim Cesarion's "Undressed", Urban Cone's "New York" and many more.

Oliver is currently working on his debut E.P. 2014 may be the Chinese year of the horse but its set to be the world year of the Nelson.
