Andrea Oliva’s current status as an established international headline act is the result of an entirely organic journey.
Teaching himself to DJ at the age of 13, Andrea then started working in a record store where he built his extensive collection of upfront promos and white labels from Europe and beyond and he soon secured bookings at some of Switzerland’s best clubs leading to residencies at Terminus and Pravda. With his status in his home country growing, Andrea teamed up with local club kid and friend Agi Isaku, and the duo were soon throwing sold out ‘Banditz’ parties across Switzerland. This home based collaboration continues through to this day with Andrea playing regular sets at his beloved Nordstern. As his reputation grew so did his diary, and he was invited over to Ibiza to play at Space in summer 2004. Ibiza remains a pivotal location in Andrea ́s current DJ career where he plays headlining slots most weeks at ANTS in Ushuaia, though his worldwide touring schedule is equally as extensive counting slots at many of the worlds biggest festivals and clubs. Production wise Andrea has released on most of the industries most recognisable labels including Hot Creations, Desolat, Knee Deep, Play It Say It, Relief, Cuttin Headz and Moon Harbour to name but a few. Not forgetting of course two BBC Radio One Essential mixes, his critically acclaimed "4313" album released on Objektivity and his All Gone Ibiza album mixed B2B with Pete Tong adding to his amazing career so far.
