For the most recent DJ Mag Best Of British awards ceremony, we descended on top London venue Egg to celebrate the very best of the UK’s electronic music talent. Winners on the night included Alan Fitzpatrick, who was awarded Best Track for ‘We Do What We Want’, together with Lee Walker who secured Best Remix for his massive take on ‘Freak Like Me’. The legendary DJ EZ was also crowned Best DJ of 2016, treating partygoers to a special set on the night to celebrate his award. As the exclusive partner with DJ Mag for Best of British, Point Blank was on location to speak to Best Breakthrough DJ winners Solardo (Hot Creations), a.k.a Mark Richards and James Eliot, about their careers, production, DJing and much more.
Solardo’s rise has been meteoric, with releases coming out this year on Resonance, Of Unsound Mind, Snatch, Madtech, Viva Music, MTA records and Roush the Manchester duo have been busy and 2017 looks to be a huge year for them. Their 2015 summer Anthem ‘New Jam’ gained them untold respect in the house and techno scene, receiving support from the likes of Jamie Jones, Richy Ahmed and Jackmaster.
