THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN ▒
✖ NHAN SOLO
(off recordings // 2diy4 : berlin)
In confusing times like these, where my-house-is-your-house-and-what-the-fuck-is-house-anyway, an up-and-coming talent from the lands of the rising sun, driven by passion for deepness and purity of the groove is roaming the cosmos.To gather the true believers on his quest for the lost arch that jack built.
From the Bavarian lowlands he found his way to Berlin, where he set up his own imprint Mother Recordings in 2012, providing a haven for like-minded musicians. It´s a healthy bunch of friends, artists and creative heads. Their individual life stories and experiences help to shape a very personal vision of contemporary House music, that received instant positive feedback from the first release on. The list of releasing artists and remixers on the freshly founded label contains well-known names such as Daniel Dexter, The Revenge, Audiojack, El_Txef_A, NTFO, Walker & Royce, Death On The Balcony, Andre Crom, and many more.
Coming from a skateboarding and Hip Hop background he first fell in love with House music in the early 2000s. For Nhan Solo, House is an organic progression of Hip Hop pitched to 100+ BPM with Funk and Soul samples twitched into loops. Being inspired by the music of Africa Bambaataa, George Clinton, Parliament and Funkadelic - his own rump shaking, body popping productions are heavily based on their synths and drumbeat sounds.
Nhan Solo´s personal continuous musical output can or will be found on labels such as OFF Recordings, Stranjjur, 2DIY4, Dikso, Nurvous Records and of course Mother Recordings. His tracks have been remixed by respectable members of the scene like Ian Pooley, Spencer Parker, Oliver $, Martin Dawson, Kiki, Fritz Zander, Adriatique - just to name a few.
So far, 2012 has been the most successful year for Nhan Solo´s still young career as a DJ. With gigs all over Europe (Istanbul, Kiev, Amsterdam, Zurich, Oslo, Copenhagen, Lyon, Berlin etc.) and 2 personal Beatport Top 10 hits ("Easy" & "Friends") which received massive support by Solomun, Soul Clap, Jozif, Dyed Soundorom, Adana Twins, DJ T....
So how will the quest for the lost arch continue in the future?
For starters, he´s in middle of preparing his first album release for 2013. With line up tours for Australia, North- and South America, he´s about to bring his compelling sound to clubs outside Europe for the first time. "Easy" will be released on a number of well-known compilation series such as Ministry of Sound, Defected In The House and the 1 Year Birthday Compilation of his own label Mother Recordins is in the making as well.
Sounding like a busy bee, or not?
"Hell yes", he says - "but it´s all good. I believe that everything must be done with passion and a true sense of sincerity. And I´ve got plenty of both to go around! :)"
