Soledrifter

Last Night a DJ Saved My Life

 

Traxsource’s Top 100 Deep House Artists wasn’t too bad this year, although there’s a good few names missing in my opinion! But, charts are charts and no-one is ever entirely happy unless you’re No.1. Of the names plenty are one’s I’ve enjoyed this year, but few names that were new to me in 2019. Soledrifter was one of those names that suddenly appeared and stuck in my head - I think with High 5ives I’ve taken more note of the names and remixers and so I thought I’d pick out some of my highlights from the list starting here with Soledrifter.

 

Soledrifter aka Dmitry Meshcheryakov is listed as a house producer originally from Moscow, Russia but now living in Canada. He’s featured on a solid list of labels from Salted, Madhouse, and Peppermint Jam to Large, Nitegrooves, Moiss Music and Duffnote.

 

His approach is documented as one that aims to make music that stirs the spirit to move. After immigrating to Canada in 2001, the musician-turned-house music-producer began producing tracks from 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).

 

He soon was noticed by other labels throughout the house music community. Releasing his “Halifax Explosion” EP on Chicago's D’lectable Recordings in 2006 with the track “Words” being featured on DJ Heather’s “House of Om” Mix for OM Records.

 

Remixes and releases on Miguel Migs’ Salted Music, then Large, King Street Sounds, Madhouse,Duffnote, Amenti Music and more followed, making Soledrifter’s tracks hot property in house music circles and some of the top 10 tracks on download stores sales charts.

 

You can also find his music on Hed Kandi Beach House 2014 compilation. Soledrifter's attention is focused not on the trends, but on the intimate details of his productions, something you certainly hear when listening to his sounds - they’re beautifully layered and complex but with an eye on the dance floor - a good blend for me personally.
