As a native west Londoner, Oliver Yorke was surrounded by bass music from an early age. Having learnt the piano since before he can remember, it was Oliver's father's love of jazz that got him into music, but it was the release of Bukem's 'Logical Progression' in '96 that set him on the journey leading to the present.
Now with 8 years of honing his production skills, alongside founding the 'Forces Electric' nights in Shepherds Bush, playing on the radio and collaborating in the warehouse party scene, Oliver's music is coming to the fore, demonstrating his love of sculpted baselines, unique beats and in-the-field recordings.
Oliver's influences span widely from 80s acid house and soundscapes, to attending Notting Hill Carnival since a kid, to 90s East Coast hip hop, through to early No U Turn releases, Optical, Matrix, Tipper and Trentmøller.
Following on from his Soundtrax release last year Oliver now delivers the superb ‘Tell Me Why EP’ for Alignment. Dark techno influenced drum workouts throughout the EP set the tone for things to come from Oliver Yorke.....
