IT NEVER END
Passion never die. It grows
stronger every day.
I started from a very young age studying piano, and listening to my father’s vinyl music, then I heard on the radio different artists who fell in love with me like: Technotronic, Ace of Base, Everything but the Girl, Afrika Bambata, Robin S and his “Show me Love”, Jean Michelle Jarre … At that time I knew that I wanted to dedicate myself to producing this music when I grow up
I started producing in early 2000 I was very influenced by trance and I was also studying music at the conservatory but then I met techno music and let myself be infected by its underground sound, I changed my style and began to press my first productions as “FERTY “From 2006 to 2012. At this time I had already signed with great labels and my tracks were played by Fat Boy Slim, Stefano Noferini, Robbie Rivera, Joy Kitikonti … Then I retired from music and decided to make the biggest change in my career.
I decided to kill my first aka Ferty and I started with something more honest with myself, something more musical and applying all the experience in my career, at that moment Fernando Olaya was born the great change.
Since I started as Fernando Olaya until today I have had great evolution in my sound, going through deep, progressive to melodic techno, but always with much percussion and groove for the dance floor. For me it would be something more melodic tech-house.
