Solique is a DJ and producer duo well-known for their percussive and melodic techno. The relationship between Julien and Can enables a collective creativity. Even though both are partners, friends and roommates, who share the passion for electronic music, the joint playing and producing connects Julien and Can more than their long lasting friendship ever could. Solique performs like a rare feeling of a direct, mutual connection with meditative and assertive affairs that challenge the listener with unexpected, but intuitive turns and interrupting grooves.
The Austrian and Swede have been playing as a duo for 4 years. As teenagers, both listened to Hip Hop which was very helpful feature for their career as electronic music producers, because it characterized their percussive and rhythmic style. Moreover, Julien is an experienced sound designer and worked for a long time in the Bootshaus Cologne, where he continuously experienced the full load of techno and fell in love with it.
Sources of inspiration are Denis Horvat, Fideles, Dixon, Adriatique. All these influences along with their shared time in Australia shaped the sound of Solique to what it is today: percussive, melodic deep house as well as melodic techno oriented to tribal sounds.
