BIO:- DJ Solution
Solution’s love for music goes back to 1995 where he developed a passion for a variety of genres ranging from dance to metal, and then got hooked on the underground sounds of hardcore, freeform and gabber. In 2001, he discovered the hardcore scene and found it inspirational and this is when he took to the decks! In 2007, he met Alex McDougall (half of Ephexis). This gave him the opportunity to learn music production by going into the Ephexis studio for tuition. He used Alex’s skills and knowledge to develop his own ideas and from this nurturing came up with his first track, Pressure Point, which was signed to Nu Energy Records, featured on the Hardcore Underground 3 album, and was reviewed in Core magazine by Joey Riot who described the track as ‘wicked, peak time freeform’.
This inspired him to set up his own studio and focus his energy on making his own tracks. Following this he has had numerous completed tracks including Solution & Ephexis – Elements and Solution & Ephexis – Requiem, both of which are signed to Nu Energy Records and featured on the Hardcore Underground 4 album. To date he has had releases on FINRG, Nu Energy, and Stamina, as well as being featured on various compilation albums.
Solution puts 110% into every set he plays, regardless of the size of the night. He is known for his seamless mixing, cutting abilities, and rocks the crowd every time! His main styles are hardcore and freeform, ranging from bouncy bass lines, to the full on purist sound. Highlights from his career so far have been his international bookings in Australia, Finland, Spain, and Poland. He has been booked across the UK at events like Freeformation, HTID, I Love Hard Beats, Raindance plus many more.
The future is bright for Solution as a main player in the Hard Beats Collective; continuing to develop his production ability, write his own music, and collaborate with other artists and MCs. He also looks to continue to DJ around the world so that more people are rocking out to the awesome underground freeform sounds!
