With Trip to Sanity, Berlin-based producer, DJ, live performer, and Stil vor Talent label head Oliver Koletzki presents a milestone in his 36-year long musical career and his 18-year tenure at the top of global electronic nightlife -- his tenth studio album. The album's title, Trip to Sanity -- a reference to the classic German children's story of the little dragon "Tabaluga" -- reflects Oliver's own path as a DJ within the world of club culture. In South Africa, Oliver wrote most of Trip to Sanity in the winter, then flashed out and finalized the tracks in his studio at Kreuzberg's Holzmarkt. Within the last 18 months a collection of complex and varied songs formed, which, typical for Oliver's collaborative approach, were often created in cooperation with musicians like techno-pop legend Fritz Kalkbrenner, Burning Man chance encounter Talmirage, scene friends Andhim, Hidden Empire, Oliver Klostermann, and Niko Schwind, or the exceptional voices Natascha Polké, Malou, LOLY, and Marlena Dae. The result is a rollercoaster ride through a diverse spectrum of dance music, effortlessly held together by Koletzki's unmistakable sound signature and his intrinsic sense for the exact tension between hedonistic dancefloor focus and poppy earworm impact.
