• “Almost uncomfortably gorgeous” -Pitchfork
  • “One of electronic music's most intriguing breakthrough acts, firing out meticulous transmissions from another planet.” -Crack
  • “Oli XL conjures belong neither to the past nor the future, but both.” -Fader

Stockholm based experimental musician Oli XL has announced his signing to Warp and shares ”Go Oli Go / Cartoon Smile”, the first double single on his new label home.After slowly becoming a key voice in the leftfield club sphere,and appearing in compilations such as PAN's "Mono No Aware", Oli vastly expanded the world of his already distinguished sound with the release of his debut album "Rogue Intruder, Soul Enhancer" in 2019, to critical acclaim. With a dissected freehand approach to the rhythms of the UK rave continuum, fragmented sampling techniques are paired with personal field recordings & processed vocals, resulting in a bizarre but emotionally rich musical universe recalling the playfulness of Basement Jaxx as much as humorless glitch.

Oli XL – Go Oli Go!

At the age of 19, Oli XL was touted as one of FACT’s artists to watch and since then has garnered support from the likes of Gilles Peterson, The Guardian (the most talked about album of experimental electronic music),Crack (Cover Story), Fader (best albums of 2019), The Quietus, amongst others.

Following a small set of vocal driven live shows diving deeper into the album's pop sensibility, Oli has spent the last year carefully crafting a new collection of music which will air next year.
