Ollie Teeba has been Djing Hip Hop, Funk, Soul and everything that falls in between since his teens in the mid-eighties. Starting out playing college parties and swiftly moving into a residency (before he was old enough to legally enter a licensed premises) at The Boilerhouse.
In 1993 Ollie met up with Jake Wherry and shortly after formed a production partnership resulting in the inception of The Herbaliser. Both avid vinyl collectors, Jake and Ollie began using the freshest sampling techniques, coupled with Jake’s musical know-how to create early demos for the fledging label Ninja Tune.
Since those early days, The Herbaliser have gone from strength to strength, collaborating with some of the most revered musical talents on the international hip-hop scene; notably New York Rapper and story teller Jean Grae, the Uk’s Blade and Roots Manuva, Dilated Peoples’ Rakaa Iriscience and the legendary MF Doom.
In his DJ career Ollie has played all around the globe at many notable clubs and festivals including Glastonbury, Harvest festival, Womad, The Big Chill, Essential, The Blue Note, Concorde, The Big Chill bar and Fabric to name a few. Delivering sets very much in the old school/classic era Hip Hop, funk/soul style.
