Olofsson is known for being one half of the Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum selling production duo Jarami. During this time he worked with industry mammoths such as Frank Ocean, Dua Lipa, Mark Ronson, Diplo, Silk City and Camila Cabello. Jarami’s work has frequently been supported by tastemaker publications such as Billboard, Complex, The Fader, Clash Magazine, Wonderland Magazine, and The Face amongst others as well as radio play from BBC 1 Xtra’s Jamz Supernova and support from BBC Radio 6’s Gilles Peterson.
While coming from Stockholm, Sweden, Olovson currently counts both Stockholm and Los Angeles as his home, travelling between the two. As he embarks on a new journey, his new style draws references from nostalgic, romantic classical pieces blended with Swedish folk melodies to the free and improvised moments of jazz.
Fall head over heels into the hand-drawn animated video for ‘Gyroscope’, created and directed by London-based Gabriel Böhmer, who originally hails from Zurich. Olovson guides us into a world of adventure and unrestricted creativity with his latest single, luring listeners in with neo-classical piano tones and the delicate brush of the nouveau across the ears and into dreams.
Speaking of the video, Olovson tells us: “I got the idea for the music video during a trip in Mexico. It’s about a child who finds a Gyroscope in his grandparent’s attic, and magic starts to happen when he spins it.”
