After having done the « Stupid Cat » remix for Max Bett on FORM MUSIC in 2012, Soliman is coming back alongside Patrick Kunkel for one groovy and surprising track called « I Can't Dance No More ». Difficult to define exactly which style it is, but we felt in love at first listening : a groovy Bassline enhanced by several drums, congas, bongas, hits playing like if it was recorded as live consolidated by a melancolic melodic MINIMOOG Leader and FM8 & PREDATOR PADS. Most of the voices were recorded by Soliman himself. Rythm & drums where composed via abbleton personalized Drumracks, Drumazon drum machine VST or 808 emulator or via MASCHINE NATIVE INSTRUMENT.
The Mendo remix is pure dancefloor tech house loop as expected whereas the Villanova remix explores in details the techno side with a unique hardware sound.

Mendo means it when he says, Music is the most important thing in my life. The striking new star of the Cadenza crew has devoted 18 years of his life to dance music and he is bursting with enthusiasm for the next 18. Born in Geneva to Spanish parents, Mendos first encounter with electronic music was through pirate radio.
in 2003 he and Chab founded Clarisse Records. Mendo released a string of hits on Clarisse including Play Me With Your Sound which Roger Sanchez snapped up for Stealth Records.
Thanks to his tireless production work and infectious DJ sound Mendo reached all the right ears. Luciano was so impressed he signed Remember EP to Cadenza Records in 2009 and Encantos EP in 2010. This was the beginning of an exciting collaboration which has seen Mendo join the Vagabundos to ignite Pacha and Ushuaia in Ibiza. When hes not running with the Cadenza crew, Mendo is globe-trotting to destinations as diverse as, Japan, South America, USA , Germany and UK, giving fans a chance to soak up his incredible four decks Traktor sets that blend the best of house, live sampling and techno futurism. Mendo plays at some of the best clubs on the planet: Womb, Tokyo; Panoramabar, Berlin; Cielo, New York; and D-Edge in Sao Paulo. "The key to a successful party is to get girls dancing. Once they dance, everybody does, Mendo says. I just want people to have a good time with my music. Mendo is currently working on productions including Stages of Life EP for Cadenza, and has a packed DJ schedule. But he thrives on pressure. It is exciting to produce a song, then play in front of thousands of people and make them hysterical, he says. DJing is the best job in the world.
