Ollie Sanders is a DJ & Producer from London UK and has been performing to crowds all over the world for over 25+ years from London to Ibiza.
He now holds residencies at some of the world’s most popular venues in Miami and Fort Lauderdale where his high energy, uplifting house music style has landed him on the main stage with some of the world’s leading electronic dance acts over his career.
His discography is impressive as he has worked with musical talent such as Camelphat, Roger Sanchez, Todd Terry, Harry Romero, Roland Clark, Prok & Fitch, Wally Lopez, Sayeed Younan, Plastik Funk, Weiss, Crazibiza, The Cube Guys, Federico Scavo, Lee Cabrera, Starkillers, David Herrero, Richard Grey, Funkagenda, Manuel De La Mare, Patrick M. and literally hundreds more!
Ollie Sanders’s history is noteworthy as he worked with the UK’s largest nightclub giants Luminar Leisure from 1999 to 2005 where he held a residency in UK’s most prolific nightclubs such as Life and Liquid. He also held a weekly residency at the 2000 capacity venue ‘The Base’ nightclub in London and was on the club circuit from 1997 touring the UK week in and week out. Needless to say, due to his skill and desire to perfect his craft, he was BUSY!
In 2005, after years of success in the music industry, Ollie purchased and operated his own nightclub in London. After 3 successful years down the line after holding hundreds of events and building up his business from scratch, he sold his club and property to continue his music career in a place he has close to his heart. He moved to Miami, FL.
With 3 years of knowledge hosting his own radio shows on stations in the UK which included pirate station Raw FM and Bedfordshire’s leading dance station Diverse FM, he knew he had what it took to make an impact on the Miami dance music scene. Soon after his move to Florida he quickly appeared on Miami’s dance station CoCo FM and was featured on Cato K’s Club Sessions on Power 96 FM.
The label (Twisted Funk Records) is slowly becoming a leader and pioneer in dance music in South Florida and is paving the way for some amazing events across the globe in 2022 and beyond.
His Miami influence gained recognition from Zulu Records where he was also featured with My Digital Enemy on their Zulu records podcast. His release on Zulu with Richard Grey titled ‘Taking Over” gained major support from Bob Sinclair before the 2013 Winter Music Conference.
During the Winter Music Conference in 2013, Ollie Sanders launched the Reload Pool Parties brand at the Shore Club South Beach where Ollie held a 6-year residency.
In March 2014, Ollie Sanders was highlighted on the Tiger Records Podcast which broadcasted on Germany’s dominant dance station, Sunshine Live and has since had his productions supported by hundreds of global artists on Sirius XM, Global Dance Sessions and Electric Radio UK, just to name a few.
At the tail end of the Reload Pool Party contract in 2018, Ollie knew it was time to utilize all the contacts and knowledge he earned in the music industry and decided it was time to open a record label. So, in 2019 Twisted Funk Records was born.
In the first 2 years, Twisted Funk had over 32 singles released along with 2 compilation albums gaining multiple top 10 chart positions and special features from Traxsource and DJ Mag. Within its growth, Twisted Funk has had four artists who have performed at the Ultra Music Festival along with Grammy award-winning talent.
Ollie says, “The label is slowly becoming a leader and pioneer in dance music in South Florida and is paving the way for some amazing events across the globe in 2022 and beyond.”
So, when Executive Producer and Host of the MasterMind of a DJ Podcast Naughty Natalia sat down with Ollie Sanders, she first had him as a guest host on her “2021 – Year-End in EDM” podcast, then they recorded Part 2, so listeners old and new would have a chance to get to know more about about this successful creative in EDM.
