Global Underground proudly present their celebratory eighteenth year and landmark #GU40 City Series release with none other than Solomun
Crowned ‘DJ of the Year’ by Mixmag, and ‘Best Producer’ at the DJ Awards Ibiza in 2012, responsible for not one, but two of the largest events during the Ibiza summer season and running the seminal DIYnamic record label imprint, Solomun has become one of the most infamous DJs in the world of late.
The Hamburg native has seen his DIYnamic and Neon Nights events at Sankeys Ibiza go from strength to strength and has recently added a weekly Pacha party to his CV. Solomun cut his teeth running Hamburg's club Ego for over seven years and continues to work behind the scenes with his acclaimed DIYnamic label and its offshoots.
Solomun's GU mix is a two disco compendium that sees each disc take on a specific vibe. Disc one takes its cues from the electronic output of forward facing labels such as Kompakt and Krakatau and features the soulful new glitchhouse burner from Christian Loffler alongside cuts from Bonobo, Jai Paul and Mooryc.
Disc two focuses on a more peaktime vibe, but crucially, the emotional resonance remains, with tracks from Oliver Huntemann, Daniel Avery, Audiojack and Alter Ego.
The mix is named after Solomun's adopted home and the launch of the compilation coincided with the closure of his old club Ego. Commenting on his city, Solomun said: “I grew up in Hamburg and until recently, lived there all my life. There are 2 million people in the city but where I lived it was like a village, you know where to hang out and where to grab a coffee. My sister and my mother and my best friends all live there… Hamburg will be always home.”
