“Music is Moments.” Solomun.

A well-respected underground producer for a number of years, he regularly hits the top spot of readers’ polls in music industry magazines — confirming his measure in every important category.

His stratospheric rise in popularity kicked off in 2012, after a legendary first season on Ibiza with his own label-inspired Diynamic Neon Nights at Sankeys.

Here, he and his crew took up the challenge and initiated a take-over of what was becoming a clichéd scene. This first assault on the White Island brought Solomun his just-rewards in the shape of Best Producer title at the DJ Awards Ibiza and DJ of the Year from Mixmag Magazine. It follows that “Neon Nights” will continue at Sankeys again this summer, along with an own night every Sunday at Pacha/Ibiza “Solomun +1”.

Solomun loves the studio, this is clear from his output: always emotive, visceral, authentic and always promoting his reasoning that “Music is Moments”. That said, his passion for DJing can never be questioned by anyone who’s seen him in-action, all over the world. As head of Diynamic Music, he’s a consistent but still he’s not afraid to take the audience on a journey. It’s a sensual style where deepness, funkiness and human vocals go hand in hand.

Running two successful labels (Diynamic and 2DIY4), one of the most respected underground Clubs in Germany (EGO) and the Diynamic Radio Show (broadcast in over 30 countries), is a true indicator of Solomun’s deep love of music and of his people. His work ethic is managed in much the same way that he brings a variety of influences into his music: a little soft touch here, a cool dance move over there and a real, honest commitment to “Doing It Yourself”.

Tone Of Arc is the San Francisco producer/musician/vocalist Derrick Boyd. ‘Urgent Turquoise’ (their first full-length album for Om Records), Tone of Arc deliver an epic 16 track sonic adventure, sublimely blending Nu-Disco, Techno, Deep House and Indie Dance sounds. Three and a half years in the making, TOA have created a truly inspired opus that highlight’s their articulate, playful writing style and Derrick Boyd’s masterfully rich production ingenuity. Tone Of Arc, in short means the sound of the laws of creation, a name born from the wonder of the sound that holds all things in the universe together.

Subtly woven into the tracks can be heard glimpses of Derrick's musical for bearers; a tinge of Talking Heads, a wisp of Tones on Tail and a majestic nod to Bowie. From the standout first single ‘The Best Place to Fall’ (KCRW Song of The Day) to the sing along pop playfulness of ‘Shutters are Shaking', the KCRW — Garth Trinidad electronic favorite 'Tear Drops on the Moon', to the truly uplifting ‘Provoco’, TOA reassures us ‘everything’s gonna be alright’. Two unforgettable covers on Urgent Turquoise are; Spandau Ballet’s ‘Chant No.1’ and Portishead’s ‘The Rip’. The musicianship and creativity is on full display here. Every listen gives a deeper experience to the album, as new standouts constantly jump out, and satisfy.

Tone Of Arc, AKA Derrick Boyd has a live show that is something rarely experienced on the dance floor. Resident Advisor describes TOA as «a perfect performance piece leaving no one on the dance floor short of enthralled». While singing, playing guitar, bass, and keys during a fully mixed slew of original songs, their sense of bravado and daring blurs the line between traditional live performance and microprocessor obsessed futurism. Tone Of Arc has played at some of the biggest clubs and festivals around the world several times over including Fabric London, Panorama Bar Berlin, BPM Festival Playa Del Carmen, Pacha Buenos Aires, Warung and D Edge Brazil to name a few from a reputably strong list.

Prior to their latest LP Urgent Turquoise, TOA released 3 EP's in 2012/2013 with remixes by Deniz Kurtel, Luca C. and Prinz Thomas leading up to their debut full length album The TIme Was Right in May of 2013 with record label No.19 Music. In 2014, NY based Touch Of Class Records (co-owned by Michael Tello of Pillow Talk) released the Retox EP including 3 originals, a remix by Signal Flow, Pattern Drama and 2 remixes by Eric Volta.
