Universal Solution is the brainchild of Manchester based producer Gavin Holland. He produces melodic progressive house and is currently signed to Anjunadeep, Silk, Colorize, Manchester Underground Music and others.
Universal Solution's breakthrough moment arrived through the release of his 'Salford Salsa' E.P. on Manchester Underground Music opening the doors to further E.P.'s on Spring Tube, Disclosure Project Recordings, Channelled Recordings, Kindred Recordings and Dosem’s imprint Soundfate. This was followed by two full length artist albums, 'Nurture' and 'The Source', both showcasing his creative depth and quality.
In 2013 Tom Middleton begun to recognise his creative talents and alerted Anjunadeep to Universal Solution. Subsequently Universal Solution featured as a dominant artist on the chart topping Anjunadeep 05 compilation with two featured tracks. 2014 saw him cement his relationship with the label with the critically acclaimed 'Yukon' E.P. including a remix package from electronica legend Tom Middleton. Two further EPs on Anjunadeep (Cordoba / Bandur EPs) and further tracks on Anjundeep 06, 07 & 08 has seen Universal Solution become a veteran of the label.
2016 has seen Universal Solution support the mighty Above & Beyond on their European tour spanning sold old gigs in Glasgow, Dublin, Belfast and his hometown of Manchester at the Warehouse project. 2017 promises to be another year of progress with further music planned for Anjunadeep, Silk Music and Colorize as well as another hometown gig on Feb 4th supporting Jody Wisternoff.
