Olav Basoski

To some, Olav Basoski is the "grand signeur" of Dutch house music. Others find him to be their inspiration to pursue a career in Dj'ing. Those who have heard him play one of his firing sets across the globe have been overwhelmed by his ability to lock a dancefloor into a groove for hours on end.

There is a lot to say about Olav Basoski, but one thing is certain; he stood at the crib of the international house scene and has been on top of it ever since. Being the leading man behind the infamous Dutch label Work Records he's released one true classic after another. Think Pancake – "Don’t turn your back", think Sil – "Windows", or "Opium Scumbagz", the #1 Ibiza anthem of 2000 under his own name, not to mention one of the most sought after housemusic vinylseries ever produced, "Samplitude", comprising over 50 tracks in all.

And it doesn’t stop there; Olav's remix-discography reads like a challenging list of timeless musical works too, well over a hundred! From Moby to James Brown, from Bob Marley to Hatiras and from Armin van Buuren to Todd Terry to Phats and Small, everyone has called him in for help.

In 2005 Olav releases his "Waterman" and again all hell breaks loose. The record gets released in almost 25 countries, tops every chart all over the world and reaches 'gold' status on vinyl alone, a rare feat these days.

Being the creative driving force behind his own imprint Rootz Records he is constantly feeding his numerous fans with high quality dancefloor material, and his DJ sets have gained him a reputation of being one of the most respected key players in the scene.

Olav Basoski and FabFilter

"Timeless is an incredible piece of work. Not only the most creative delay I've ever come across, it SOUNDS the works too. A rare combination! It's a very overlooked and underrated effect delay."

"Whenever I insert Timeless on a synthriff, a bassline, even beats, it really comes to alive. Who would have thought a brilliant plugin like this would come at this price. Amazing!"
