SOLOMUN (Diynamic Music)
The word Industrious is often overused when it comes to describing
artists in dance music and even when it´s correctly used it rarely a sign
of artistic quality. When it comes to Solomun however, it 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 diskjockeying 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, Noir Music, Supernature,
Rebellion and his own Diynamic and 2DIY4 imprint but it doesn´t stop
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
Stimming, H.O.S.H., Ost and Kjex, Uner, David August, DJ Phono, Liem
and Solomun himself are just a handful of the artists who have benefitted
from their output being wrapped in the label 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, Pulse
Radio, Russia Radiotakt and a lot more radiostations provides yet
another platform for some Solomun passion, and his 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 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
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.
