From the beginning on Blueprint records Oliver Ho has explored techno in its many different styles, from his early dark electronic records to the more organic percussive grooves on Meta Records. All these ideas and sounds have been distilled down into the current project, Raudive. The sound of raudive takes the percussion of his earlier releases over the last 18 years and mutates it into a slower deeper sound, fusing the funk of house and the electronics of techno. The debut record on Klang Elektronik, “Audio ep” was closely followed by many releases featuring the Raudive sound evolving on record labels such as Klang, Music Man, Pokerflat, Get The Curse, Cocoon, We Are and Macro. More recently Oliver completed his second Raudive album for Macro, “A System Of Objects”. A mixture of strange exotic percussion, avant garde instrumentation and dirty machine rhythms.
In the beginning of 2014 Oliver signed Broken English Club to Jealous God, a label run by Regis, Silent Servant and James Ruskin. Broken English Club takes the darker elements of Raudive and pushes them into more industrial/noise post-punk directions. Also coming soon is the third project that completes his trio of artist monickers, Zov Zov. Out on Shifted’s Mira label, the debut record features abstract sound experiments in avant garde noise and drone.
This attitude for bringing together the different dynamics of various genres is reflected in the diverse dj sets oliver plays at clubs around the world from new york to tokyo to paris and back to london.
