For 2017 Oliver has created a new solid mix called the Main Mix offering up a wonderful tribute to the original. It delivers punchy kicks and crispy sharp hats alongside bright percussions.

“Oliver Lieb created a piece highly ahead of its time in “Netherworld,” and it continues to stand as one of the most iconic trance and progressive singles in existence. Its first incarnation, written under Lieb’s L.S.G. moniker, was released twenty-one years ago, quickly becoming a favorite among Sasha & Digweed and helping to influence many other artists since.
German music genius L.S.G. aka Oliver Lieb throws up a nice little surprise for us with brand new remixes of his famous 1996 cut Netherworld. First appearing on his second studio album – Volume Two – Netherworld quickly became a firm favourite around the world. Oliver Lieb continues to be hugely influential to artists, his career spans almost 3 decades and in that time he’s delivered hundreds of tracks under various guises, with L.S.G. being one of his most popular. He is most known for his cutting edge techno and trance, but he also produces memorable downtempo, ambient and tech house. His works have featured on the legendary Superstition as L.S.G. with tracks like Fragile, Hearts, Blueprint, My Time Is Yours and the list goes on. Paragliders was also hugely successful as was lots of other aliases he went by. From here his tracks were picked by a multitude of labels including Hooj Choons, Yoshitoshi, Platipus and Sven Vath’s Harthouse where his Spicelab moniker dominated. In 1996 his tracks were picked up for some of our own labels starting with an appearance on XTC Trax 3 with Fontana which led to other inclusions on compilations for Bonzai Trance Progressive, Tripomatic and Tranceportation. One of the world’s best known aliases in the electronic music scene no doubt, delighted to have him on board at Bonzai.
