Guest DJ Mix from Solomun Tonight on The Underground

By Duncan Ross posted Mar 12, 2011 at 07:36 PM

 

 
Tonight on what most surely will be a late Underground after the baseball, we have a mix from your host Duncan Ross as well as a special guest mix from one of the headliners of this year's Sunday School: The Lost Weekend at the Ice Palace taking place during the Miami Music Week.
 
Solomun
The word “industrious” is oft overused when it comes to describing artists in dance music
and even when correctly used it’s rarely a sign of artistic quality.
When it comes to Solomun however, it’s bang on the mark and has no negative
implications for artistic quality. The Hamburg-based, Bosnian-born Croatian has played a
major role in redefining European house music in recent years via productions, remixes
and DJing which take the very building blocks of house and deftly reconstruct them with
a decidedly modern twist.

 

The word “industrious” is oft overused when it comes to describing artists in dance music
and even when correctly used it’s rarely a sign of artistic quality.
When it comes to Solomun however, it’s bang on the mark and has no negative
implications for artistic quality. The Hamburg-based, Bosnian-born Croatian has played a
major role in redefining European house music in recent years via productions, remixes
and DJing which take the very building blocks of house and deftly reconstruct them with
a decidedly modern twist.
This contribution to house is partly drawn from a hefty touring schedule gracing the
worlds finest clubs alongside an impeccable string of tracks and remixes for the likes of
Buzzin Fly, Freerange, Get Physical, Phil E, Mobilee, Dessous, Compost, Four:Twenty and
his own Diynamic imprint but it doesn’t stop there….
Having started Diynamic just five years ago alongside long-term friend Adriano Trolio,
Solomun has set about developing and nurturing his outlets for music as much as the
music itself. Now, Diynamic enjoys the sort of reverence usually reserved for labels three
times its age and has been instrumental in allowing some of the new talents in electronic
music to shine. Stimming, HOSH, Ost & Kjex, Uner and Solomun himself are just a
handful of the artists who have benefitted from their output being wrapped in the label’s
distinctive sleeves and the Diynamic appeal shows no sign of waning.
Despite a hugely hands on ad attentive role in developing Diynamic and it’s roster,
Solomun has also added the roles of Promoter, Radio Host and Club Owner to his list of
job titles and each of these endeavours has seen him succeed and create a formidable
reputation for himself.
A weekly radio show syndicated to Ibiza Global Radio, Proton and Russia’s Radiotakt
provides yet another platform for some Solomun passion, and his newly acquired Ego
Club in Hamburg has been the logical step on from creating some of the best parties in
the notoriously competitive club scene in the city. These extensions of his own recording
and DJ career certainly show complete dedication to his DIY cause and the music that
fuelled its necessity but the formula for the success of each of these extra-curricular
activities can be attributed purely to talent.
This talent is pretty unquestionable, too. From the army of high profile fans like Steve
Bug, Loco Dice and Ricardo Villalobos through to the critically acclaimed 2009 debut LP,
“Dance Baby”, which saw the likes of Mixmag, Electronic Beats and even itunes list in
their top albums of the year, the responses to Solomun material are unusually
unanimous. If the industry and press mean nothing, then just look to the dancefloors of
Watergate, Warung Beach Club, Studio80, D-Edge or Ego where Solomun keeps
countless clubbers enraptured with his sounds at Diynamic residencies on a regular basis.
Despite an intimidating amount of roles to balance, Solomun does so much in the same
way as he manages the plethora of influences on his music, with a deft touch, a smile on
his face and real honest commitment to “doing it yourself”.
