Dmitry OLENIN: - Teacher's newspaper

The name of TV and radio presenter and DJ Dmitry Olenin is strongly associated with secular Moscow, the world of show business and club life. Therefore, it is difficult to imagine his difficult childhood in industrial Cherepovets, where, as a little boy, he dreamed of working as a tram driver and even farming. Today, residents of the whole country recognize Dmitry Olenin only by his one voice: professionally, for many years he has remained faithful to Russian Radio, which, by the way, recently celebrated its 25th anniversary. It was Dmitry, along with other presenters, who took part in the famous sixty-hour continuous broadcast, which was included in the Guinness Book of Records. Recently, Dmitry has been increasingly seen on television: on TNT, RU TV and MTV, MusicBox and Muz-TV, on Domashny, Channel One and Russia 1. However, in almost all of his interviews, Olenin admits that he loves radio too much, as well as his work as a DJ, to finally go to TV. nine0059


– Dmitry, today, in the era of the Internet and the development of podcasts, is radio also forced to change?

- When music began to go to the Internet, the first thing they said was that the radio would disappear, disappear. The same was once said about other areas of life, for example, that with the advent of television, cinemas will disappear. Nothing like this happened, on the contrary, now the radio audience is increasing. It is radio that still influences whether a certain song becomes a hit or not. The fact is that a person who listens to music on the Internet, no matter what resource we take, either listens to what he downloaded himself, or is content with the stream of music that is automatically formed based on his requests and tastes. It is unlikely that the same song will be repeated several times there. On the radio, everything is built in a completely different way: each song on the radio does not appear by chance, it first undergoes numerous tests, our specialists constantly monitor the audience - this is how they determine what they like, what they don’t like, what they like more, and what less. Based on all this research and studying the preferences of the audience, a playlist for the radio is created. And besides, when a song appears, you hear it 3-4 times, you like it more and more. And so it becomes a hit. This is very important for the artist and for show business in general. Therefore, we see that the influence of radio has only increased. In contrast, the influence of the Internet on music has waned. Of course, you can always say that a real hit will find its own way, there really is a lot of truth in this. Yes, a good song will find its listener even without a station, but as for not an absolute hit, but a hit that needs support, and there are a lot of them, here the radio plays a very important role, unlike Internet music portals. nine0003

– 2020 has changed the lives of many. How have the pandemic and the months of self-isolation affected you, how has your life changed?

– I didn’t have isolation, I just, on the contrary, had work all the time. All the live broadcasts that I had before remained with me, everything was the same. The only thing is that it's easier to get to work. There are no cars, empty roads, everything is calm. I noted for myself that at first during the pandemic, people began to listen to news stations more because they were interested in what was happening. But this was typical only for the first months, then most of the audience left the news stations for music ones. Everyone is tired of the same words on coronavirus, scary news. People started wanting more music, less information and words. nine0003

– How can you explain your relative media closeness? Despite your active presence in the media space, you tell a little about yourself as a person, and not as a presenter...

- I don't understand this question about relative media closeness. Privacy from whom? From the audience, from the artists? In my opinion, I am not completely closed from anyone, but, on the contrary, I am as open as possible.

- As a DJ you started in the era of active development of club culture in Russia, do you have a feeling that today is a different time? (Dmitry Olenin is also known as dj O ! Lenin , who performs with his sets throughout Russia, as well as in Europe and the USA. He played in such famous clubs as Anfora and Sun - Rise (Ibiza), Heaven , Cheek 9000, (Grand Channel) , Staff (Madrid) and others - Approx. ed. )

– I can't speak for the whole of Russia, but in Moscow, where the history is always a bit different, the clubs of the early-mid-2000s no longer exist, unfortunately. It was expected, predictable. Still, small bars, cafes, small establishments changed clubs, as happened in Europe 10-15 years ago. We are following exactly the same scenario. The club culture as a whole, of course, still exists, but it is no longer widespread. Our club DJs earn much less money, although, to be honest, they invest much less resources: if I used to pay 12 euros for a vinyl record, and 1 record is 1 song, 1 track, now you can download any amount on the Internet for free compositions and already be a DJ. What happened to the club culture: DJs began to clearly divide into formats, and this is very nice. I know that this DJ plays music that I like, but this one works in a completely different style, mood. You can always find the right music for yourself: for a weekend, for outdoor recreation or for a club party. We have a lot of great DJs, including young, beginners who feel the audience very well. After all, understand, a club DJ is not the one who mixes tracks with high quality, so that you do not notice the process itself. No, the art of a DJ is to put the next track on the dance floor cooler than the previous one, so that the audience likes it more, that is, first you need to feel the audience, understand what mood they are in, what kind of music these people want to listen to today. And, having guessed this mood, already put on the music that suits right now. And each next track should be even more “breaking” than the previous one. And, of course, you need to get into the mood, be able to let people go, take a break, come back, this is also very important. nine0003

– It is known that since childhood you have been dancing, loved music, collected records…

– Yes, indeed, I have always had a love for music, since childhood. I loved to listen to everything… everything that was possible to get at that time. I even listened to music lying on the floor, because we lived on the fifth floor, and on the fourth floor our neighbor had speakers on the closet, they were optimally close to the ceiling. And when he turned on the music, I, being on the floor above, lying on the floor, could listen to it. That's how he did it. My parents sent me to dance, Cherepovets - it is generally such a city, dancing, we have a lot of completely different dance groups - both folk and modern, and our circus wins first places in various competitions. In our city, any child should study somewhere, in some section, go somewhere. It so happened that in my kindergarten there was a dance club, then at school, that is, my love for art was influenced, among other things, by my hometown and educational institutions. Hence the collection of records, today there is nothing cooler than the sound from vinyl. And until now I continue to buy records, I listen to them with pleasure, now there are more classics, I also have plenty of club music in my house. There are a lot of records, I don’t want to part with them. Sometimes I even find records that I have never played, and listen to them with pleasure. nine0003

– When did you become interested in jazz?

– Jazz appeared in my life much later, as well as classical music. The more music I listened to, the more I wanted to learn its different styles and phenomena. And now I don't understand artists who perform to the soundtrack, having the opportunity to play live sound. And, of course, I go to concerts where you can hear exactly the live sound, and just bastard from what is happening. And thank God that we have such artists more and more every day. And just a few of those who speak under the plus. Unfortunately, this is what our young musicians are famous for, who earn enough money, but do not want to bother with live musicians. nine0003

- At one time, you had to leave the university for the sake of the profession of a radio presenter. What do you think about education today: where is it better to study and how?

- If we talk about education in general, then today it is impossible to learn many professions at universities, of course, if you are not an engineer or a doctor, not a person of precise professions. I learned my profession solely through personal experience and the experience of my colleagues. No one taught me to be a presenter, no one taught me to be a DJ, I'm generally a programmer by education. Where can I go to study to be a radio presenter? I don't know of any institution of higher education where one could learn this craft as closely as possible. Therefore, I am self-taught, I always wanted to work on the radio, then it turned out that this was my vocation since childhood, I found myself and enjoy it, although I cannot boast of a diploma. And the diploma that I have was never useful to me, I didn’t work a single day by profession. nine0003

– You perform at corporate parties not only in Russia, but also in other countries, including European ones. How is this work fundamentally different?

– The distinguishing features of any work abroad, whether corporate or not, are decency, honesty and legality. The law is put above all else. If you are a DJ at a holiday in France, then you must write a complete list of songs, indicate the author, give the official name of the track, the label to which the artist belongs, and submit all this data to the report, because then the company that invites me must pay tax for using this music at your event. And this is very strictly observed, of course, not in all countries, but, for example, in France this is very strictly monitored. All your work is also regulated: how, where and how much in time. If you, as a DJ, have a scheduled exit at 2 a.m., then it is at this time that you go out to work. No delays, no explanations will be accepted. At the same time, no one will let you recycle either.
