Pryda Records rising star Jeremy Olander is returning to his hometown of Stockholm, Sweden to debut his new concept “lo-fi,” a stripped down, low key event that he anticipates eventually turning into a series held in various locations around the world. With the goal in mind of finding a unique and unconventional setting, the debut will take place in a defunct bomb shelter in the Swedish capital on May 15th and feature an extended 4 hour set from Olander, with support from Richard Knott and local Stockholm talent Hultmaskjina.
In the event’s press release, Olander further detailed his inspiration behind the concept:
We want to create a simple but powerful experience that reminds us of the type of events that made us fall in love with this music 13-14 years ago. My manager and I were brought up at warehouse parties and small, sweaty 200 capacity venues where LED walls and CO2 cannons were non-existent.
The vibe you felt in a cool venue contributed enough to the ambiance and we feel like a lot of people that discovered house music in the past 3-4 years have missed that. That’s where lo-fi comes in. We see it as a counter to excessive visual experiences, pyrotechnics and DJs screaming on the mic. This is in a lot of ways the dominant perception people have of where house music should be experienced.
