It’s A Mancunian Affair!


Solardo have announced the full line-up for the London leg of their UK tour – and they’re keeping things strictly within their extended Manchester family! House starlet Mason Maynard and Kaluki resident Pete Zorba will join James & Mark at Oval Space on Sat 24th Feb.

Mason Maynard is spearheading a new wave of house producers emerging from Manchester in the wake of the post-Sankeys era. Still in his early 20s, he’s already had an EP out on Sola and joined the boys for a slew of dates in the earlier half of the tour.

With releases on DFTD, Relief & Kaluki, Mason Maynard is odds on to be the next big house sensation.

Seasoned Mancunian DJ Pete Zorba is the second name joining us. He is both a resident and promoter for party series and label, Kaluki. Though they have years of experience in the game, the collective have recently broken free of their Manchester stronghold and are now exporting the brand worldwide. With Solardo having plied their trade at Kaluki, it only seems right to return the favour and get Pete on board with Solardo Sessions.

The lads are off the back of a frantic 2017. Who can forget their hosted arena at Abode In the Park in Finsbury Park at the end of last summer? Or the fact they played everywhere from Ibiza to the States, Mexico to Australia? Somehow they still managed to find time to grow burgeoning label, Sola. The most recent release on the label comes via Spanish tech-house sensation, Wade.
