Recently receiving the coveted title of “Best Producer 2012” at the annual DJ Awards in Ibiza after his first year on the island (which features the who’s who of the DJ world each summer), Solomun has been showcasing his dark and funky deep house sound worldwide. The Bosnian-born Croatian moved to Hamburg, Germany several years ago and has been a staple in the extremely strong German house scene since. His eye for talent is shown through his highly successful labels, Diynamic, and 2DIY4. The labels boast several young rising artists and both have their own unique sound. Diynamic includes the likes of Stimming, H.O.S.H., Ost & Kjex, and David August, promoting a deep house sound with primarily German-based artists. The label has recently released a compilation of their most successful artists titled “5 Years of Diynamic”, and has consistently been releasing chart-topping material. Concerning 2DIY4 Solomun says, “It’s sound is open to new styles and a playground for every kind of style and music.” and thus far, it has been doing just that. Releasing several Beatport top tens including production by Kolombo, Amine Edge & DANCE, and Demarzo, 2DIY4 is off to a promising start. Besides his labels, Solomun has been lighting up dancefloors from Berlin to Rio De Janeiro including a summer residency at Sankeys, Ibiza (Voted DJ Mag’s best club in 2010). His B-side of Love Recycled, “Love Recycled 2” was one of the initial songs to get me into the genre, and his “Around” remix was one of the most played songs this year. His mesmerizing basslines and expert use of vocals are highlighted in some tracks below. Also below are some select favorites from each of his two labels (but the list of songs is so extensive from Diynamic, I suggest looking into the label more). So lay back and get lost in Solomun’s deep grooves with a good sound system to pick up the low frequencies!
