“Olive T -who’s become an increasingly visible draw at local dance spots over the past year, shows a command of house and techno of all eras that is so fluent it can seem offhanded, and she weaves in plenty else, besides.” - Michaelangelo Matos
"Olive T has been immersed in the NY dance scene for over a decade as a performer, producer, and DJ. A love of classic disco and house, flavored with a diverse knowledge of music, gives her a distinct style. Her DJing can be heard in venues such as Elsewhere, House of Yes, Avant Gardner, Le Bain, monthly on The Lot Radio and over international airwaves. The production side of Olive T varies as well, with single and remix releases on Nervous records, 2MR, Bouquet, Sorry Records, various compilations and through her bandcamp. Musically, she aims to weave a musical tale that is influenced by history and technical capability to surprise and please listeners anywhere."
“After putting out the excellent ‘Goin Up’ EP in July, the New York-based artist’s second four-track EP landed this month via Sorry Records. Our pick of the bunch is ‘Shimmer or Glimmer’, which opens up gently with metronomic clicks and gliding string sounds, before steadily ramping up the pressure. By the midway point it’s grown into a formidable dancefloor heater, packing a bold acid line, moody bass notes and reverberating vocals into its potent atmosphere.”
“Opening track “Opaque” perfectly captures the moment around 1990 when NYC producers like Lenny Dee and Frankie Bones connected with what was happening in Detroit and the UK and created something simultaneously tough and emotive. 909 drums and sunrise chords all the way! “This is a Bop” is funkier, shufflier, more modernist..” - Joe Muggs
“... she leaves us with an electrifying dance-floor track that projects its pop self-awareness in its title. "This is a Bop" is already wonderfully bouncing hands-in-the-air house music, with a three-note keyboard hook and a spoken-word sample about ascension, before a “Pop Corn”-like synth earworm arrives” - Piotr Orlov
