With an approach to dance beats that is all his own, the man known as Soledrifter (aka Dmitry Meshcheryakov) makes music that stirs the spirit to move. After immigrating from Moscow, Russia to Halifax,Canada,he began churning out tracks in his basement beat kitchen. Some of his first original tracks were put out on Toronto-based labels Stickman and Slush as well as several remixes (all released under the former aliases Deemah, D_Mon, Demar). It wasn't long before Dmitry's work started pricking up ears throughout the house music industry. Releasing 'Halifax Explosion' EP on Chicago's D'lectable Recordings in 2006 would lead to the track 'Words' being included on DJ Heather's 'House of Om' Mix for OM Records the same year.
Soledrifter's remixes and originals on Madhouse,Hed Kandi,Simma Black,Salted Music, Large, King Street Sound,Peppermint Jam Records,etc., have all followed since then, making Soledrifter's tracks among the hottest commodities in house music and ,quite often hitting the top 10 Deep House tracks on Traxsource. In the summer of 2018 his remix of Ugur Soygur's 'Secret Buddah' soars to No.1 on Traxsource's friendly rival site ( BP for short) Deep House charts cementing Soledrifter's reputation of a hardworking professional. With his tireless work ethic, undeniable talent behind the mixing desk, and ear for uncommon sounds and textures, Soledrifter's attention is focused not on the trends, but on the intimate details of his productions. With new music always cooking on the stove, his unique recipes are always a delightful fusion of dance floor fever and head-nodding whiplash.
Soledrifter's music has been supported by Joey Negro,Grant Nelson, Mark Farina, Miguel Migs,Todd Terry, Low Steppa,Mousse T, Giom, Sam Divine, Stonebridge, Terry Hunter, Erick Morillo and many more.
On the side, Dmitry runs a one man alter ego metal band 'Macho Creep'. Check it out on Facebook and Soundcloud
