Olan (All City) - A Random Slice of Cali


It's high time that Olan from All City was the locus of attention, and as such, the guys over on Rhythm Incursions have upped a couple of mixes to do just that.

Olan O'Brien has been responsible for some big records in the last little whilst, and there's no real sign of slowing down. The LA Series may be the most heralded, and many might recall the incredible 7x7 series which preceeded, but he's been at work at his All City shop and label for more than a hot min.

When approached for a mix, he responded in ernst with a couple, the first of which is this mini mix of 10 records from 2010. Selected are 10 records from the year which Olan wanted to share reflecting artists like Krystal Klear, Onra, Floating Points, Shed, and Kyle Hall all appearing. Be sure to look out for the amazing collabo between Martyn and Mike Slott which the label will be releasing shortly.

Now for the big boy! Titled ‘A Random Slice of Cali’ it’s a celebration of L.A music from records Olan picked up at random over the years.

It’s basically random LA bits picked up over the years – A Random Slice of Cali! One glaring mistake I’m surprised/disgusted I let slip but I’ll leave that up to people to spot – maybe theres more than one! I always intend to take some time over these things and end up just frantically grabbing a load of records off the nearest shelf! and trying to get it done in an hour – so apologies to anyone who is offended by the sloppiness!! At the risk of sounding like a ponce – its all vinyl – no edits, represses, compilations or any other substitution of the real!
