Producer and Mixer Olaf Opal inimitably walks between credible Indie and crowd pleasing Pop. Since the mid 90’s he’s one of the most sought-after producers and mixers in Germany, especially when it comes to Indie and Alternative Music. His early productions for bands like Miles, Naked Lunch and The Notwist laid the foundation for his ongoing success.

By now primarily young and upcoming bands turn to Olaf as a producer to realize their musical vision, often outside of the mainstream.

With „Die besten Jahre“ Olaf also produced the celebrated LP by International Music, named one the beste German LPs in 2018.

The success speaks for itself: numerous Platinum- and Gold awards for Juli, Ich+Ich and Polarkreis 18 and a triple Echo nomination for „Producer of the year“.
