Solomun @ Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE
Solomun has been one of the most well-respected underground producers for a number of years. He regularly hits the top spot of readers’ polls in music industry magazines – confirming his measure in every important category. He has played a major role in redefining European House Music, with productions, remixes and stand-out DJ sets that take the very building blocks of House and sensitively reconstruct them: adding a fresh, ultramodern twist to the genre. Running two successful labels (Diynamic and 2DIY4), one of the most respected underground Clubs in Germany (EGO) and the Diynamic Radio Show (broadcast in over 30 countries), is a true indicator of Solomun’s deep love of music and of his people.
