Enigmatic icon Olof Dreijer is coming to Sónar Istanbul 2024!

Most descriptions of Olof Dreijer start with the fact that he was one half of pioneering duo The Knife. What they should start with is that he’s also responsible for some of the most forward-thinking dance music released this century. Between 2008 and 2010, under his Oni Ayhun alias he released a series of minimal, mind-bending singles that still sound like nothing else around. This year, he finally stepped out of the shadows to release a colourful, percussive EP under his own name on Hessle Audio, and has begun to DJ again after a long hiatus. Expect a set of bright, rhythmically diverse selections at Sónar 2024, from Portuguese batida and crisp techno to rough baile funk and lush house.
