UK - House, Techno
A slew of early releases via imprints such as Viva, and elrow helped rocket the Mancunian duo Solardo (James Eliot & Mark Richards, aka MRK1) to their first Beatport Number #1 with their breakthrough record on Hot Creations, ‘Tribesmen’.
Later they released EPs on Toolroom Records, Lee Foss’ Repopulate Mars and Green Velvet’s Relief Records.
After being assigned remixes for the likes of MK, David Guetta, Black Coffee, Nicole Moudaber & Carl Cox, Solardo’s success hasn’t gone unnoticed and they signed to Ultra Music. Since, the pair have gone onto release hits ‘Be Somebody’, ‘Tango Wango’ and their latest release ‘XTC’. Arguably the duo’s most successful release to date.
The duo’s own radio show named ‘The Spot’ continues to go from strength to strength. Fast approaching it’s 100th episode, they have so far had guests such as Claude VonStroke, Nicole Moudaber, Andrea Oliva, Gorgon City, MK, Skream and Kenny Dope all contributing guest mixes for the pair.
