Electronic music maestro Solomun is set to release his first album in eleven years in early 2021. ‘Home’,the captivating new single and video out 16th October, is the first of four new tracks to be teased ahead of the widely anticipated new album.
The video consists of artists performing passionate routines in some of the world’s most iconic venues including London’s Printworks, La Seine Musicale inParis and Robert Johnson in Offenbach – a fitting metaphor for the lockdown that has burdened cultural centres for most of 2020. Marking the first release on his freshly launched label NINL, ‘Home’ is richly atmospheric and sees the artist incorporate dark tribal tones and ethereal build ups for a transcendent listening.
Solomun explained that: “Home was the starting point for the idea of an album in the first place. I had plenty of opportunities to play it and for me it has withstood the test of time. It was evident that this had to be the first single for the album.”
Evoking a sense that in every place, music can find a home, but in order to really experience music, you have to immerse yourself in the spaces that are specifically created for music, the official music video captures that sentiment perfectly. The track marks the Bosnian-German artist’s first release since remixing tracks from Bob Moses and Perry Farrell respectively. He also dropped the single ‘Rotweinfleck’ back in February.
Born in Bosnia and raised in Hamburg, Solomun has established himself as one of the finest electronic artists on the planet in recent years, winning the DJ Awards accolade for ‘Best International DJ’ multiple times and remixing countless high-profile acts, including Foals, Editors, Lana Del Rey, Paul Kalkbrenner, Jamiroquai, Depeche Mode, Apparat, Jon Hopkins and Leonard Cohen.
A masterful melodic house composition, ‘Home’ leaves a lasting impression.
