Awakenings Festival 2019
In the last year alone, Olivier Giacomotto has managed no less than 6 Top Ten hit productions, a feat that has lead to him becoming one of the most in demand remixers/producers in the industry and firmly established him amongst the continent's leading acts... Having began his career working in recording studios back in the late 1990's, Olivier learned the tools of his trade alongside various famous bands, producers, studio musicians and sound engineers. Having released over 20 EP's throughout 2004-2005, Olivier began to gain support & recognition from a host of major DJ's & artists including the likes of Carl Cox, Misstress Barbara, Chris Liebing, Umek, Marco Bailey, Dave Angel and Green Velvet amongst many others... The release of the "Jamon y Queso" EP in 2006 saw his career really take off, with instant creditation coming from worldwide dj's such as the legendary Sven Vath and one of Olivier's own longtime John Acquaviva... Indeed, it was Acquaviva himself who signed Olivier's next release entitled "Walking on The Moog" to his own label : Definitive Recordings... a track that received international acclaim and went on to become Olivier's first Beatport Top Ten hit! This opened the floodgate for 2007 and the Top Ten records came thick & fast... his reworking of the fantastic "Volta" by Robot Needs Oil, closely followed by his own incredible production "Gail in the O". Olivier's Top Ten hits have included his production "Wasabi on Top" and "Sushi in S Major" along with his remixes of both Hipp-E's "Major Waves" and Mantra Vibe's "Running From". The collaboration with his now regular production & DJ partner John Acquaviva for the "Sofa King ...Good" EP are tipped for the same heady success. Olivier's success in the studio has seen his touring the world, demonstrating the overwhelming talent behind the decks that he has crafted over the last decade in some of the world's most famous underground venues.... Privilege in Ibiza, Rex Club in Paris, Ministry of Sound in London, Heineken City Hall in Amsterdam, Zona in Moscow, La Bush in Belgium, Fabrik in Madrid, Lov-e in Sao Paulo, Turnmills in London, Summer Dance Festival in Colombia, Hrad in Slovakia, Dom Im Berg in Austria, Fusion in Germany... to name a few...
