Olaf Stuut readies new LP, out 10th of June. The Amsterdammer has a 9-track LP ready + shares lead track ‘Maze (feat. Marlon Penn)’.
Olaf Stuut’s new album Run sees him reaching the creative apex of his career as a producer, composer and performer. Initially known for his remix work with artists like The Acid, Max Cooper and Tonik Ensemble, Stuut has toured Europe, tearing up his native city Amsterdam and visiting cities like Paris, Barcelona and London on the way.
Lead single ‘Maze’ reveals in more than just name. The first of two collaborations with singer/songwriter Marlon Penn sees Olaf utilising a driving bass and protean song structure to prop up Penn’s dark and abstracted vocals. As the song crescendoes, this oppressive sensation becomes less prevalent, the industrial elements are shorn in favour of ambient elements and it becomes a tour-de-force in cosmic brilliance.
Run is set to be Stuut’s boldest statement. It’s intricate and raw, which is as much as you can expect from a man who lists among his production influences both Hendrix and Debussy.

Ry X, Adam Freeland, and Steve Nalepa aka The Acid’s mesmerising ‘Red’ has been handed over to Dutch powerhouse producer Olaf Stuut for a hypnotically deep remix, breathing fresh life into the act’s already stand out production.
The Acid came together as collaborative project between British Grammy-nominated producer and DJ Adam Freeland, Californian polymath Steve Nalepa and Australian vocalist/producer/cult folk artist Ry X. Breaking ground in 2013 with their debut self-titled EP, the trio quickly followed up with second release ‘Liminal’, a critically acclaimed work which showcased the collective’s influences and intended direction by giving clear nods to artists such as Portishead, Aphex Twin and Thom Yorke. The Acid are an act which penetrates a range of genres – from techno to R&B, deep house and beyond.
Having made a name for himself via a plethora of dreamy productions on the underground’s premiere imprints including Cocoon, Manual Music, and TRAUM – Olaf Stuut was an obvious choice to rework ‘Red’.
Straying away from the original’s decidedly nocturnal aura, Olaf’s interpretation of the sultry beat and rolling bassline is several shades darker, yet undeniably more club ready. Taking the listener on a journey through vastly different soundscapes, this reinterpretation showcases the Dutch producer’s more fractured approach to electronica. The result has a more purposeful beat that takes the track to an altogether more atmospheric place.
Stuut’s adaptation of the original vocal also helps steer the track through it’s new path to deep-seated melancholia. The sultry male vocal retaining it’s mesmeric flow dances effortlessly over the enduring bassline and at times glitchy synth interchanges, now peppered with the introduction of flutes.
The beat’s pace accelerates throughout the remix before a barrage of heavy drum kicks and quickening claps take the track on an upward climbing crescendo, breaking out into full on club roller and once again highlighting the track’s potential as a well rounded club record.
