ANDREILIEN aka Andrei Olenev
Andrei Olenev first emerged on the San Francisco underground glitch/bass scene in 2006 performing under the moniker, “Heyoka.” By 2009 he was touring extensively, and quickly became a staple sound in the rapidly growing bass music scene of North America. He has since gained international recognition and established himself as a pioneer of psychedelic bass music. Andreilien has a constantly evolving sound with a solid foundation of deep sub bass and heavy psychedelia, combining influences of many musical styles, without confining itself to any particular genre.
Playing always live sets of his original tracks, Andreilien maintains a heavy club and festival tour schedule. He has performed in North American festivals such as: Symbiosis, Sonic Bloom, Raindance, Lightning in a Bottle, The Bounce, Alchemeyez, and large Burning Man sound camps such as Nexus, El Circo, Camp Questionmark, Temple of Boom, Entheon Village, Roots Society and Fractal Nation. He has also played several international electronic music festivals such as Shambhala (Canada), Boom (Portugal), Earthfreq and Winter Solstice (Australia), Envision (Costa Rica) and Luminate (New Zealand).
As Heyoka, Andrei released his first ep in 2008, and by 2011 had produced over six albums through San Francisco’s Muti Music, a leader in the glitch hop and bass music scene. After launching Andreilien, he continued to develop his sound, culminating in the releases of “Dub Iteration” and “Antikythera.” Andrei has since taken a couple of years to evolve and reinvent his musical style, resulting in his new album, “Downloads from the Dub dimension,” in which he delves into different styles and sonic experimentation. Further expanding his repertoire, Andrei has been continually working to develop a multimedia project with original Visionary and 3D art to create full sensory fractal journey, which he plans on touring with in the future.
So, for a sonic journey so thick you can smell it, keep listening to signals from beyond from Andreilien…
