Hailing from Manchester, production duo Mark Richards & James Eliot, collectively known as Solardo, are continuing the city’s rich heritage in house music.
Crowned DJ Mag’s Best Breakthrough Act of 2016 and part of Resident Advisor’s Top 100 DJs list, the duo’s rise is testament to their hard work in the studio and infectious energy in the club. A slew of releases via imprints like Viva, MTA, and Elrow helped catapult them to their Hot Creations Beatport Number 1, ‘Tribesmen’, in October 2016. Thunderous EPs for Toolroom Records and Green Velvet’s Relief Records followed, to widespread acclaim.
In 2017 they completed a sold-out Solardo Sessions UK tour in addition to tours in the US, Australia, Argentina, and countless festival shows⎯and the rest of the year is just as busy.
