Within recent years Solardo have risen to become one of the most sought after acts on the underground music scene. Their hard-driving, party-starting style of Tech House, which is evident in their tracks & DJ sets has seen the boys from Manchester score numerous number 1s and top ten hits, and play at some of the biggest parties across the globe. With the Ibiza season at a close, Halloween already drifting away and Christmas still feeling a young age away, “Higher” a showcase presented by Solardo was the perfect anecdote to bridge the gap. The line up set to be showcased at the newly re-built Studio 338 in Greenwich, London was heavyweight. A top heavy line up playing through a bass heavy Void sound system balanced out with upcoming DJs Mason Maynard & Late Replies playing some cool early sets.
It may have been raining cats and dogs but the heavy showers didn’t deter faithful from turning out in full swing as the sold out show was almost at full capacity from early. Mason Maynard, a young UK DJ who is set to light the scene up in the very near future, played an incredible early set, leaving the helm rocking for LEON to go b2b with Joey Daniel. Staged under the newly re-developed terrace of Studio 338, with ravers avidly fist pumping from the balcony above, Solardo accompanied by special guest Andrea Olivia churned out riddim after riddim for hour upon hour. There were countless fresh tracks being dropped alongside older classics such as Detroit Grand Pubah’s track ‘Sandwiches’ educating the younger generation. One of the most if not the stand out moment of the night, was when Solardo dropped their smash hit track ‘Somebody’. When this track was dropped the whole venue rocked. The whole venue, right from the very back of the inside club part to the front of the terrace, stopped rocked and relentlessly sung in unison the words to the song and dropped again whenever the b-line dropped. The night was brought to a close with an amazing dark set by Avorte label boss Sante, the perfect way to end 11hrs solid music.
