Skarby

Skarby

Skarby (Bar25, Traum, Melody of the Soul) – house project from Warsaw. With over 20 years of studio experience stretching over a number of genres and having played some of the biggest electronic festivals across Poland and abroad, Tom found his footing with Skarby, releasing two albums an collaborative EP that climbed to the top of the beatport Organic House charts in February 2022. With a dose of “soft touch” and an ear for melodies, his new material is suitable for dance floors as well as a soundtrack for a sunny day in the meadows.

Solomun

Solomun

For Solomun, music isn’t just a tool to make people dance. Music is as diverse as life itself: many different shades, moments, and memories to be made. Music triggers emotions and vice versa, and this sort of interrelation – with Solomun representing the music and the audience emotions – is what casts the spell around his performances.

His “Solomun +1” residency at Pacha Ibiza started in quite a laid-back fashion – with him doing his own thing, moving the DJ booth into the centre of the club to be close to the people on the dancefloor instead of the usual high podium, and introducing a fairly unheard-of concept on the Island: a night together with only one friend. Since its commencement in 2013, “Solomun +1” has long become an Ibiza household name, with its “Solomun +LIVE” offshoot on the Island and +1 editions all over the world, be it Berlin, New York or Tulum.

The same energy was what kicked off his music label Diynamic in 2006: A band of brothers with similar ideas, taste in music, and the volition to support each other. And, looking back, Diynamic turned out to be the stepping stone for many artists’ careers.

All of this started somewhere small, but by being himself, an honest entertainer in the truest sense of the word, not a stage persona, Solomun came to be so incredibly sought after.

He proved that the music is more important than the place it’s played at, because his sets, remixes and productions are bringing people together. And always, he is sending the same message: “Nobody is not loved.”

Something Something

Something Something

Steffi aka Something Something is a relative newcomer to the DnB scene, having started DJing and producing only at the start of 2019. But this came after many years of raving, making her a familiar face everywhere from Fabric to Let It Roll. She feels all the years on the dance floor has given her a good grounding in knowing instinctively what works to get people moving. After seeing one of Andy Cs legendary sets at his XOYO residency, she finally had the epiphany and decided to start doing herself. The tune production started not long after and since then shes thrown herself completely into the music, racking up DJ gigs around the world and honing her studio skills.

Steffis big breakthrough as a DJ came when she won the DJ competition in Croatia at Hospitality on the Beach, beating almost 40 other DJ’s and winning her a very well received set on one of the big stages at the festival. She went on to pick up a Best Newcomer nomination at the D&B Arena Awards 2020. Now with her first solo release out on Elevate and a number of collabs garnering attention, Something Something is definitely a little something something to look out for.
