Hey, my track Olive is featured on culture system!
Triumphant, ravey synths soar with melodic intricacies over a half step beat and warm basslines on “Olive,” produced by a 17-year-old Staten Islander named Deadstock Mind. Dude may be a youngblood, but he knows his club music history and he’s definitely built up some production skills since he started five years ago, as evidenced by this here joint. “Olive” was apparently inspired by a house track of the same name from the ’90s, and the synths are a recreation from that tune. The first and second half of this song are pretty similar, and we’re more partial to the second part. There’s no waiting for the build up, the melody is longer, the quick high-hats stay present throughout (keeping the pace up), and the modulating synth from the intro is integrated with the rest of the elements. This was supposed to be included on our NYght Out mix, but he wanted to clean it up first. Well worth the wait. Peep Deadstock’s Tumblr blog to see what he’s diggin’ right now.

In the works for a couple of mixes, one including a vocal mix of this track.
