On 2nd March 2018, Germany’s respected and prolific DJ/producer Oliver Schories will release his fifth artist album entitled ‘Blitzbahn’ via his very own SOSO imprint.

As​ ​the​ ​wind​ ​whistles​ ​through​ ​your​ ​hair,​ ​everything​ ​passes​ ​you​ ​by​ ​in​ ​a​ ​blur.​ ​Faster​ ​and​ ​faster you​ ​go,​ ​faster​ ​and​ ​more​ ​terrifyingly​ ​into​ ​the​ ​abyss​ ​you​ ​fall.​ ​You​ ​scream​ ​with​ ​a​ ​mixture​ ​of panic​ ​and​ ​joyful​ ​abandon​ ​half​ ​wanting​ ​this​ ​to​ ​never​ ​end​ ​but​ ​knowing​ ​that​ ​it​ ​will​ ​anytime​ ​now: a​ ​smile​ ​creeps​ ​across​ ​your​ ​face.​ ​And​ ​as​ ​it​ ​ends,​ ​you​ ​breathe​ ​a​ ​sigh​ ​of​ ​relief,​ ​wistfully remembering​ ​with​ ​powerful​ ​emotive​ ​accuracy​ ​before​ ​hurriedly​ ​joining​ ​the​ ​back​ ​of​ ​the​ ​queue for​ ​another​ ​go​ ​-​ ​after​ ​all,​ ​it’s​ ​just​ ​a​ ​ride.​ ​Life​ ​is​ ​very​ ​much​ ​like​ ​the​ ​‘Blitzbahn’.​ ​It​ ​goes​ ​up​ ​and down,​ ​round​ ​and​ ​round​ ​and​ ​for​ ​much​ ​of​ ​the​ ​ride,​ ​we​ ​never​ ​know​ ​what’s​ ​going​ ​to​ ​happen.

Here​ ​on​ ​his​ ​fifth​ ​studio​ ​album,​ ​Oliver​ ​Schories​ ​explores​ ​all​ ​the​ ​fun​ ​of​ ​the​ ​fair​ ​across​ ​13 expansive​ ​cuts​ ​that​ ​showcase​ ​his​ ​incredible​ ​knack​ ​for​ ​straddling​ ​that​ ​House/Techno mid-point​ ​with​ ​consummate​ ​ease.​ ​Some​ ​artists​ ​take​ ​years​ ​to​ ​craft​ ​their​ ​albums,​ ​agonising over​ ​every​ ​detail​ ​before,​ ​frustratingly,​ ​deleting​ ​the​ ​whole​ ​project​ ​and​ ​starting​ ​again.​ ​Oliver, however,​ ​is​ ​as​ ​prolific​ ​as​ ​he​ ​is​ ​confident​ ​of​ ​his​ ​ability​ ​to​ ​construct​ ​the​ ​kind​ ​of​ ​dance​ ​floor bombs​ ​that​ ​have​ ​helped​ ​him​ ​to​ ​build​ ​a​ ​significant​ ​head​ ​of​ ​steam​ ​in​ ​the​ ​underground.

As​ ​someone​ ​who​ ​considers​ ​himself​ ​a​ ​DJ​ ​first,​ ​Oliver​ ​has​ ​an​ ​uncanny​ ​knack​ ​for​ ​finding​ ​a groove​ ​and​ ​his​ ​musicality​ ​far​ ​exceeds​ ​the​ ​normal​ ​for​ ​the​ ​genre.​ ​With​ ​international​ ​festival appearances,​ ​club​ ​nights​ ​and​ ​the​ ​new​ ​crown​ ​of​ ​Global​ ​Underground’s​ ​latest​ ​NuBreed​ ​artist, it’s​ ​safe​ ​to​ ​say​ ​Oliver​ ​Schories​ ​can​ ​deliver​ ​and​ ​deliver​ ​his​ ​does​ ​in​ ​spades.​ ​On​ ​previous albums,​ ​certain​ ​themes​ ​rise​ ​to​ ​the​ ​surface,​ ​themes​ ​of​ ​belonging,​ ​of​ ​love​ ​and​ ​of​ ​togetherness and​ ‘​Blitzbahn’ ​continues​ ​in​ ​that​ ​vein.​ ​But​ ​these​ ​are​​ ​a much​ ​more​ ​focused​ ​collection​ ​of tracks​ ​written​ ​over​ ​a​ ​mere​ ​few​ ​months​ ​in-between​ ​his​ ​hectic​ ​DJ​ ​schedule​ ​which​ ​showcase the​ ​direction​ ​his​ ​music​ ​has​ ​developed​ ​in​ ​recent​ ​years.

Whereas​ ​Oliver’s​ ​last​ ​album, ‘Relatively Definitely’,​ ​was​ ​winsome​ ​and​ ​light​ ​overall,​ ‘​Blitzbahn’​ ​has​ ​a​ ​heavier, darker​ ​and​ ​more​ ​guttural​ ​aural​ ​backdrop.​ ​Glistening​ ​seas​ ​of​ ​deep​ ​growling​ ​bass​ ​litter​ ​the album​ ​with​ ​powerful​ ​understatement​ ​pushing​ ​the​ ​crossover​ ​point​ ​much​ ​further​ ​into​ ​Techno waters.​ ​A​ ​tale​ ​of​ ​two​ ​halves,​ ​the​ ​dance​ ​floor​ ​heavy​ ​‘Fakir’​, ​‘Cobra’​ ​and​ ​‘Ivre’,​ ​show​ ​an​ ​artist in​ ​full​ ​control​ ​with​ ​powerful,​ ​sinewy​ ​workouts.​ ​But​ ​the​ ​real​ ​treats​ ​await​ ​later​ ​in​ ​the​ ​second​ ​half which​ ​playfully​ ​focuses​ ​more​ ​of​ ​the​ ​deeper,​ ​thoughtful​ ​side​ ​of​ ​Oliver’s​ ​sound​ ​with​ ​cuts​ ​such as​ ​‘Kondor’,​ ​‘Magnolia’ ​and​ ​‘Rummel’ ​providing​ ​a​ ​balance.​ ​‘Blitzbahn’​ ​is​ ​Oliver’s​ ​most accomplished​ ​work​ ​to​ ​date:​ ​focused,​ ​passionate​ ​dance​ ​music​ ​for​ ​the​ ​21st​ ​century​ ​from​ ​one of​ ​the​ ​unsung​ ​heroes​ ​of​ ​the​ ​scene.

‘Blitzbahn’ will be available from 2nd March 2018 via SOSO.
