￼Recognized as one of the main techno pioneers and influential artists of the recent time, Shlomi has become one of the true techno pioneers of a generation.
After 15 years honing his skills as a producer and DJ in his home country, the young Israeli rose to prominence in early 2006 and since then Shlomi has enjoyed a meteoric rise through the underground scene, creating some of the most recognizable and unique techno tracks of modern times and has collaborated with many luminaries from the past and present. This means he boasts some of the world’s most prestigious labels on his ever- expanding CV: Cocoon, Ovum, R&S, Objectivity, Renaissance and his own Be As One to name but a few.
Early tracks such as Sea Of Sand, After Love, and Tel Aviv Garden have become engraved on Top 10 bestseller lists all over; his worldwide funky techno anthem with Ovum Recordings “Freakside” became his trademark track, being “the biggest club track of 2007” and one of the most played techno tracks of the recent years. “Sketches”, on his own label Be As One, has already been described as a techno classic of modern times; his recent second album “Chicago Days, Detroit Nights” on Ovum has cemented his worldwide reputation and is already been reworked by heavyweights including Chris Liebing , Steve
￼Lawler, Nic Fanciulli, Marcel Dettman, Josh Wink, DJ Sneak, Michel Cleis, Kenny Dope, Ian Pooley, Alix Alvarez, Paul Ritch, Santos & Timo Mass.
To no surprise Shlomi was selected as Beatport’s Artist of the year 2008 and also received a nomination for the prestigious Worldwide DJ Awards, placing him in the first tier of electronic music artists, headlining every prestigious club, festival or venue worldwide. And 2011 will be no difference: Shlomi will play at various festivals throughout the year including DEMF (Detroit Electronic Music Festival), Tomorrowland, Munich Summit, Here Comes The Sound, Loveland UK and many more.
Shlomi’s sets have also been cited for their unique ability to cohesively traverse genres; DJmag positively wrote in a profile article, ‘Shlomi’s sets are full with warm and unique sounds that makes you feel like you are going back to the better days of music, it was something I can’t define just by one word, if I must I will call it something between house and techno. With his fascinating technical skills, accurate programming and music selection, you can just feel the magic in the air.’
Shlomi’s own record label, Be as One, was born in 2007 from a deep rooted passion for seeking out new talents and challenges. The open-minded platform has pushed quality music without a stubborn focus on particular genres, concentrating on keeping heart and feeling at its core. Be as One has become a firm favourite with the world’s elite and thrived through its broad range of quality house and techno music, with the only constant being that “a track must have the right feeling and stand out in its own way.”
