When Dixon entered the berlin club circuit in the early 90’s, he established his name on the strength of djing. Back then, confidence or experience based on putting out mixes in the internet did not matter as much as it does now. You had to do your practice, of course, but when your thing was good and tight enough to take it to the clubs, there were opportunities to do so. But those opportunities meant responsibilities. A residency did not mean playing the same club every once in a while, it meant playing the same club every week. The crowd did not consist of people that wander in and out of club nights and its guest djs as the weekly hype commanded them, it consisted of people which headed straight to a certain club night because they were sure its resident dj would deliver the goods this week as he did last week, and the next weeks to come. As long as that happened, there was no need to move on.
Solomun plays a major role in redefining European house music with productions, remixes and DJing by taking the very building blocks of House and deftly reconstructing them with a modern twist. A respected underground DJ and producer for a number of years, his stratospheric rise in popularity kicked off in 2012. The same year Mixmag Magazine voted him as „DJ of the Year“. His Ibiza success story began in 2013, when he inaugurated his infamous “Solomun+1”-residency at Pacha, which instantly became the island’s go-to event on Sunday nights. 2015 saw the commencement of his second residency concept: “Solomun+live” is an outdoor daytime event with nothing but live-acts as his special guests. Solomun loves working in the studio, but his passion for DJing and performing is obvious to anyone who has seen him play anywhere around the world.
