Extra Virgin was the first release for British Trip Hop band Olive, released in 1996. This album defined Olive’s style, spawning three singles, “You’re Not Alone”, “Outlaw”, and “Miracle”. The Trip Hop influence of Massive Attack and Portishead, while in small quantities, are evident, mixed in with synth-based electronic dance.
A year after its initial release, Olive’s debut album Extra Virgin produced a number one British hit with “You’re Not Alone,” a low-key Trip-Hop number with a graceful melody. It’s a strong single, and there are similarly strong moments on Extra Virgin.
The band created some samples by recording live sounds, edited and subsequently filtered. Synthesizers used on the album were a Roland Juno-60, an E-mu Systems Vintage Keys, and an Akai S3000XL sampler. All in all this makes for an organic, trippy experience.
