Ollie Blackmore

Music has always been a massive part of Ollie’s life. His Dad was in several bands which opened his eyes to many different genres and heading to gigs as he toured.

Ollie grew up listening to electro, funk, hip-hop and first heard house music after a friend’s brother came back from Ibiza in 89 with a suitcase full of mixtapes. From that point forward he fell in love with dance music.

By 1990, Ollie bought his first decks and was Djing at clubs in Norwich within two weeks, mainly house and hardcore.

He landed several residencies at Hyperbolic, Intense and a few illegal raves. By 1994, he changed direction and only played house music. He joined the team at Milky Lunch - the most prominent house night in the East, playing alongside Sasha, Marshall Jefferson, Danny Rampling and Boy George.

By the end of the 1990's, Ollie had played all over the country. You'd find him at Progress, Club UK, Temptation at the Whitehouse, Slinky, Creation Bristol, Aquarium London, Planet K Manchester, Area Watford, Soulshaker, The Gallery at Turnmills, Gods Kitchen, Egg, Gatecrasher, Ministry of Sound tours, Renaissance and many, many sets at Miss Moneypennys.

In 1999 Ollie became a resident of Universe. Universe is famous for the pioneering dance festivals which spawned Tribal Gathering. His residency with Universe set him up to play on the Universe show on Atlantic 252, Music Choice on Sky every Friday to a global audience, and play on a UK tour promoting the film 'Sorted'. His mixes have also featured on Ministry of Sound Radio.

The UK Tour took Ollie all over the country. He was lucky enough to play alongside Carl Cox, Danny Howells, Lisa Loud, Timo Maas and Terry Farley to name a few! The highlight of the tour was Djing at the glittering premiere party at London's Browns nightclub.

Ollie then landed a weekly residency Djing live on TV with Rapture TV. He would play live to a studio audience as the show was broadcast around Europe and showcased on ITV on Thursday nights. He also had shows on pirate radio stations; Flight FM, Flex FM and guested on Unknown FM.

Fast forward to now, Ollie is now a resident of the legendary Soul Heaven record label and global events brand. In Ibiza, you can catch him DJing at Ocean Beach, Es Vivé, a regular at Sol House Rooftop Nine (stunning view over the bay) and Tulp Bar. His sets are packed with upfront music, edits and gems from his vast collection of music. Some of his set’s from Ocean Beach have been broadcast on Ibiza Global Radio and Sonica.

In the UK he runs the Soul Heaven night on the east coast with guests so far including Grant Nelson, Paul Trouble Anderson, Sy Sez, Melvo Baptiste, Natasha Kitty Katt & Tom Crane. You can also catch him playing for Sundown Festival, #House, OPEN, Karma Kafe, Dance Paradise, DigitalFunk, Somewhere and Soulgasmic.
