In the D-LATE room @ egg this week we have one of the musical scenes most consistent and innovative artists, Oliver Ho AKA Raudive. Oliver Ho has been making dance music with an experimental bent for over ten years now. He has explored techno and house in its many different styles, ranging from the deep tribal sounds of the "Universal" album on his label Meta, to the dark abstract noises of his Veil album, to the funkier house sounds of his Birdland project. All these ideas and sounds have been distilled down into the current project, Raudive which focuses more on the minimal side of the dancefloor.
Raudive has been going from strength to strength recently with records on Poker Flat, Nummer-Schallplatten and Drumcode labels.
Raudive is supported by Laura Heath, whose love affair with electronic music began when she started listening to pioneers of the sound such as Swayzak, Adam Beyer, Guy Gerber and Carl Craig. Laura studied their sounds and used her knowledge to create her own blend of melodic techno.
