Stopping a while for us, during his fantastic summer, Solomun spent few questions to describe his Ibiza nights, nominations, future gigs around the world, a focus on his Diynamic imprint and future plans.
Hello Solomun and welcome to Different Grooves. Summer season is going on, how is yur personal feedback for Pacha Sunday nights “Solomun +1”?
Hello Different Grooves, thanks for having me here. My personal feedback for the Pacha Sundays? I’m overwhelmed, we constantly experience nights to remember there. I am really happy that this is going that well and that me, my +1-guest and the whole crowd are having so much fun. For me every Sunday is big time fun.
Who is going to be your next +1? Please be so kind to introduce your fantastic further line up!
Ame will join me for the 3rd time, DJKoze, Marek Hemann, DJ Hell and Tensnake for the 2nd time, then Dennis Ferrer and for the Closing I will welcome as my guest Roisin Murphy live.
You are also running some cool nights with your label family, Diynamic, at Sankeys: how are going your bright shining events there?
I love the vibe with my Diynamic family at Sankeys, it is so good and special that all our artists come together once a week to celebrate our Diynamic Neon Nights. We have now two rooms open, the basement and a new room called the Lab and like last year having really wild partys in there.
Last Ibiza question: noticed on DJ Awards! For the second time in a row, now as “Best Deep House DJ”. What are your feelings and expectations on it?
Of course I feel honoured about this but honestly I don’t think so much about it. I mean, I don’t wake up every morning, look in the mirror and say to myself: Yeah, I am nominated! For me the most important thing is to do my work, to play and produce and the rest will come … maybe.
Solomun in the next months: gigs around the world – Australia, Asia, America. What gig are you looking for the most?
I can’t tell what I am looking forward the most honestly. Cause for the first time I play the big Stereosonic festivals in Australia, this is truly exiting.
It is no secret that I love to play in Brazil, especially at Warung Beach club, but also in the rest of Brazil. I will stay in Brazil for 2 weeks will play 7-8 gigs and will be again on a Warung Birthday there. But I am also really looking forward to Zouk Festival Singapore, cause I’ve never been there before.
A mervellous collaboration with Roisin Murphy is coming again, tell u show isyour artistcal relationship with her and what we can expect from your duo work on Diynamic imprint?
I appreciate and respect her since long time, I mean she is one of the most outstanding singers that I know and since years she has a great feeling for timeless dance music. So for me it is a personal gift that we are actually working together on tracks and that she will be my +1-guest at the Closing of Solomun+1 at Pacha. What can you expect? We are like in the middle of the process, so everybody, Roisin and me included, need to be patient.
Solomun next studio projects: tell us and to our readers, what we are going to listen in the close future from your dynamic mind?
Honestly: after the cooperation with Roisin Murphy and the two long tours I will take 2-3 months off in the New year and I am sure that after a few weeks of doing nothing I will start to get back to the studio. So I guess it’s gonna be a surprise for everybody, me included.
Thanks for your time, was a pelasure to host a big name like Solomun on our web magazine
The pleasure was on my side, take care.
