Artist feature 2013:
  • Solomun
    • Solomun has long been a favourite of the underground house world thanks to his always anthemic singles, edits and remixes as well as because of Diynamic, the hugely influential label he runs. In 2013 though, he has reached new heights for a number of reasons. Firstyl Ibiza, Solomun + 1 at Pacha Ibiza and sees the boss headline on his own with one hand picked guest playing alongside him. Âme, Dennis Ferrer, Miss Kittin, DJ Hell, Nicky Curly, Tiefschwarz, Tensnake, and Marek Hemmann are just the first acts to be named as guests of Solomun+1. Of course, the Croat is always busy in the studio too, and his latest remix is of English indie band Foals, you can listen to it here and it is to be released on Warner Music in the coming days and outside of his Ibiza gigs will be playing all over Europe in the summer months. Tomorrowland in Belgium, SW4, Creamfields and Lovebox in the UK, Extrema Fest in the Netherlands, Melt! In Berlin and club gigs around Switzerland and Germany are all on the cards, as outlined below…
