Next year will see Solardo take to clubs all across the UK as part of their Solardo Sessions tour, just announced for January, February and March. Featuring the UK duo as guests of esteemed local party starters in Leeds, Bristol and Liverpool, the event series will offer audiences across the UK a voyage into the cutting edge side of UK house and techno.
Solardo will be playing off the back of a big year which has seen their reputation grow rapidly, with a multitude of mixes and tracks showing off the skills that have made them a trendy addition to club nights and festival lineups across the country. Consisting of two producers who have enjoyed success both individually and together, Solardo bring a New York-influenced sass to their tunes, never veering far off course from the big, bass-heavy techno stompers that they have become known specialists in. Recent releases have been emblazoned with the symbols of Hot Creations, Kaluki and Viva Music, and by our reckoning things are only going to get better for the London-based pairing.
Playing on Merseyside on Friday 17th February after a show at Leeds’ The Faversham on Saturday 21st January, Solardo will move onto Manchester's Albert Hall on Friday 24th before heading to The Marble Factory to treat the Bristolian crowd to the finest records in their collection on Friday 3rd of March and do the same in Oxford the next day. Continuing the ethos of host party makers like Liverpool’s Circus, they will surely attract plenty of interest early on, so consider this an early warning! Tickets are now on sale.
