Heyoka AKA Andrei Olenev is another cosmic auditory scientist found in the Bay Area noosphere, who has been blowing minds with his auditory manipulations.
Muti Music first released Heyoka’s “Space Case EP” in 2008 and included him on their growing roster of talented artists, and his albums ‘Whomp Gland & Pineal Dub’, ‘Gate Code’ and the all new ‘Marklar’ album in 2010 have shown that he is a producer consistently evolving his sound while managing to maintain a signature sound that is distinctively ‘Heyoka’.
His early influences in Downtempo, Dub and IDM combined with more recent midtempo dancefloor genres have helped create a very unique sound that combines relentless basslines, hip hop and dub rhythms with a lot of musicality and melody.
The response to his emergence so far has been overwhelming with Heyoka developing audiences and playing festivals from US to Canada and Australia. For a mind bending experience in dub inspired Glitch Hop, keep your ear to the ground for Heyoka playing a city or festival near you.
