OLAN| BIO 2023
Originating in 2015, OLAN is an Indie Electronic project created by songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Luzana Flores. After years of experimenting and floating in between genres ranging from R&B to alternative rock, OLAN found comfort in returning to her early influences from the likes of Bonobo, Little Dragon, Maribou State, and SBTRKT--pushing herself into a more introspective domain as a songwriter and producer.
The Georgia state native has a colourful songwriting catalogue, including co-writing credits for 'Buss It' for Ari Lennox, collaborations with Mat Zo on his 2020 album 'Illusion of Depth', the single release of 'In Motion' with rising star Nourey, and 'Push', first released on Anjunadeep's Reflections series. In June 2022, OLAN emerged from the uncertainty of the pandemic with her debut album.
The culmination of many months in solitude, 'Contra' began as a natural form of escape and expression for OLAN, helping her find peace amidst the years of uncertainty brought on by the pandemic:
"'Contra' is an album I wrote as a way to find some peace with my life having no definitive purpose at the time. I often try to attach meaning to everything I encounter. I force myself to relive memories. I'll try to unpack them and see how I could change my reality if I had just been a better person."
Musically, 'Contra' is inculcated with a variety of electronic styles from melodic house, breakbeat, downtempo and drum & bass, to ambient and hip-hop. Influenced by the likes of Maribou State, Little Dragon, T.E.E.D and Bonobo, as well as the cult video game 'Outer Wilds', the sound of 'Contra' is fluid and alluringly hard to pin down. OLAN's penchant for textural soundscapes is showcased in atmospheric tracks such as 'Push' and 'Submerge' and the buoyant Balearic vibes of 'Material'. Conversely, the jungle rhythms and acid basslines on 'Promise To Keep' and 'Reckoning' demonstrate how raw, energetic dance-inducing songwriting comes naturally to the Atlanta-based producer.
The aforementioned themes of self-awareness and self-acceptance are persistent throughout the album, realized in OLAN's considered lyrics. Opening track 'Submerge' contemplates the cyclical nature of life's lessons, exclaiming "there's no limit to the depth that I can relive it all". Other tracks such as 'Promise To Keep' and 'Ultraviolet' raise questions about fulfillment and where it comes from - "I'm asking more questions / Taking no secrets / But is there a message / When nothing is sacred?". Each song presented a cathartic moment for Lu, as she explains:
"Making this album was the first time I could be present with the grief, loneliness, or isolation I felt when my expectations didn't match my surroundings. It made me realize how much happier I am when I detach from stories or specific outcomes."
A gifted and classically trained musician who learnt her craft between orchestra classes and worship bands, OLAN prominently incorporated her own live instrumentation and vocals whilst recording the album. Suitably, Flores took 'Contra' on tour live this year, with performances at Beyond Wonderland, Ultra, The Gorge Weekender, and alongside Ben Böhmer on his North American tour.
As of 2023, OLAN has performed at many iconic venues including Red Rocks, Printworks, Avant Gartner, and released follow-up tracks on Odesza's imprint Foreign Family. She is currently on tour with QRTR to support them on their 'The Last Goodbye' Tour alongside Bonobo, Tokimonsta, and Bob Moses.

Yulia Niko Bio 2023 A dynamic, determined and driven force in the world of electronic music, Yulia Niko embodies a style and grace that lie at the core of her success. Currently based in Berlin, she rose to prominence on the global circuit via her connection with the highly influential labels, Crosstown Rebels and Watergate. Her ability to channel emotion and rhythm into the dance floor with her melodic productions that oscillate between house and techno. Since the age of 15 Yulia has dedicated her life to music, moving to New York in her early twenties to study production after spending her adolescence DJing and collecting music. With her formal grounding, and a flair for DJing and production, she established herself on the underground, playing across the US and Europe.
Now a globally recognised artist with a packed touring schedule and impeccable discography, Yulia is preparing to unveil her debut album - an intimate and exploratory project that marks a key milestone in her musical journey… Ever since she was a teenager, Yulia’s passion for electronic music has been innate and all-consuming. At the age of 15, a car accident left her in a serious condition in hospital. She credits music with being key to her recovery, sparking a desire to get back on her feet and to utilise the power of music to evoke positive change in the world. With such a deep and profound connection to music, and the will to carve out her own path, it was perhaps inevitable that Yulia would become a success.
She began to DJ, and landed herself a residency at a popular local club. After graduating from university she moved to New York. There she enrolled on a music production course, to add an extra dimension to her skillset, knowing that it would unlock a new phase of her burgeoning career. Four years of study provided the foundation for her production endeavors, and she began to release music. Initially focused on the minimal style of electronic music, her connection with Crosstown Rebels bossman Damian Lazarus inspired her to incorporate melodic influences in her sound. Witnessing the beauty and harmony at events like Day Zero informed her sonic identity, and she began to create music to soundtrack the wonder of those powerful gatherings. With releases on Crosstown Rebels, Rebellion and, later, Watergate, Yulia established a sterling reputation for well-crafted, melodic dance floor magic.
Her bond with Watergate led to a residency with the iconic Berlin club, along the Manifesto EP. Appearing at the club on a regular basis gave her the opportunity to galvanize her style as a DJ, while also allowing her to showcase her superlative selecting skills. Today, Yulia travels the globe, performing at a long list of the world’s most prominent and influential clubs and festivals. With each performance she channels her desire to harness the transformative power of music into her sets, leaving dance floors worldwide full of positive energy. Yulia’s optimistic outlook also informs her music exploits, as her early experience with trauma left her with an acute understanding of the notion “everything happens for a reason”. Over two decades of commitment to electronic music and its transformative capabilities, Yulia Niko has demonstrated her innate talent for DJing and production. In combination with her positive energy, she continues to ascend, touching the lives of countless dancers across the world. As she shifts into the next chapter of her musical story, Yulia Niko maintains the good humour, grace and humility that got her to the top of her game in the first place…
