Solace

Solace is a Belgium based producer and DJ that set his first steps in the drum and bass scene in 2015. He immediately set his mind on the deeper side of the genre, and hasn’t left it yet.

He started his producing career with his “Avenoir EP” and has been moving through the ranks ever since.

In 2016 he released a track part of a ‘various artist’ EP on the late Belgian imprint Rumble recordings, and a single on Modular Carnage.
This year also holds another highlight which is winning the dj competition from Sun And Bass in Sardinia, on which he played again the year after.

2017 is also the year he played at the well respected Ghent based Star Warz and released his first tune on the Belgian Halogen Music. Solace also established his sound further with releases on Terabyte, T3k Recordings and Modular Carnage.

Solace got introduced to Lifestyle in 2018 with a collaboration between M-zine, Scepticz and himself, and later in the year with a track on the “Belgian Connection LP”. This year also saw the release of the well received “New Era EP”, the Paroxysm – Forbidden Affection single on Ronin Ordinance and a self-released EP.
2018 also marks the year he played at one of the biggest drum and bass events of Europe, Rampage, as part of the Space Pirates crew.
Besides the releases and djing, he also joined the Steamteam, a Ghent based drum and bass concept.

Continuing in 2019, he sent his big six-tracker the “Broken Mirror EP” into the world on Halogen Music and another tune on Ronin Ordinance, part of the Genso series.

Solace has already made a mark, but he is not at all easing up. He keeps on grinding away, making tunes to show the world what he’s got.
Don’t forget to keep an eye on him, or you might just miss out.

Tom Small

Prague based talent Tom Peterka aka Tom SMall is one of the upcoming producers from the Czech Republic. His involvement in the electronic music scene started from just 16 years of age.

His background is one that comes from listening to a wide variety of music types with his friends, and then trying to mix it all together. After a few months, he decided to make his own sounds, and after five years working on his production skills he made his debut on Czech label Deafmuted Records with a track called ‘Paralyzing ways‘ which was a part of the compilation ‘Depthblinded part 3‘. This signing really spurred Tom on and inspired him to make ‘Fiction / Remover‘ as a solo single on the same label. This release really showcased Tom’s progresive experimental sounds, all composed in a deliberately ‘steppy‘ form. 

His next releases were all big ones. The ‘Skepticism EP‘ skiped into the electronic music charts with its sophisticated and extraordinary tracks. After that, further releases followed on Dispatch Recordings (a collaboration with Bredren on the Transit 2 LP), Zenith Music and of course Broken Audio, which have set him out as an artist to watch for. With future releases on Proximity Recs., Flexout Audio and Broken Audio, 2016 already looks exciting for this promising young musical talent.

As a DJ, his sets are focused around deep sounds that evolve into heavy stepping deep / neurofunk vibes building and creating a story of music in each of his sets. With bookings already in Slovakia, Belgium, Austria, Germany and Czech Republic his popularity is rising fast with a fast growning reputation as the most evolving talents of the Czech electronic music circuit.

Parallel to this, Alexander became interested in producing dubstep, and preparing to publish two fresh tunes. In his future plans — serious work in techno and house directions.
