Olav Basoski
By Martin Sitter

As a house music producer myself, there's very few people I look up to as much as Olav Basoski. Let me tell you why ...

In 1998 I was living in the UK. One night I found myself at "The End" in London, and this MONSTER track came on the PA. It was the type of track that changes your entire view of how a genre should be ... a big, filtered bass line, smacking kick, and a vocal that peeled through my ears, sintering itself into my mind. That track was "Getting Around," by Olav Basoski.

I've followed Olav's music for years, collecting AFAIK all of his records (at the time). In fact, I've played more than a few sets that were 100% Olav traxx. So it was with some awe that I found myself looking at Olav's name on the macProVideo.com order list, that infamous day in 2006. I knew that if Olav was watching our tutorials, we were doing the right thing.

Olav Basoski is the "grand signeur" of Dutch house music. He is the founder of several legendary House labels, including Work Records, Samplitude Records & Rootz Records.

Besides his own imprints, Olav is an active and prolific remix artist with over 100 remixes to his credit. In fact, Olav's remix roster reads like a who's who of electronica: Moby, Armin van Buuren, Todd Terry, Phats and Small ... even James Brown & Bob Marley have had the special Olav treatment applied to their sound.

But the single most important thing to know about Olav is the blasting funk and the incredible energy he brings to a dance floor. If you like house music, you MUST see Olav play. But don't take my word for it ... listen to his music and check out his latest tour dates by visiting his website:
