Until recently, you’d have been forgiven for not having a clue who the heck Martin Solveig was! This French electronic DJ and producer grew up in Paris where he was classically trained in music and went on to DJ at some of the most famous Parisians nightclubs including L’Enfer, Le Queen and Les Bains Douches. It took just one record for Solveig to burst onto the international music scene, not only as a well-respected DJ but also as one of the most formidable producers and performers in the world, and today he has now sold over 2 million copies of ‘Hello’, released a further five albums and is globally recognised with having achieved platinum status in America, Italy, Germany, Austria, Canada and Australia.
Solveig’s most recent album, SMASH, resulted in the genius creation of his own YouTube series which has completely redefined the world of music videos and has signalled the producer not only as a name in music but also a powerful creative force. This six-episode series begins in the legendary Roland Garros stadium, then moves to the incredible Stade De France, a rooftop pool in Singapore and various other locations in Japan, so if you find yourself in one of these places any time soon make sure you get a pic busting out some of his moves.

Aside from this revolutionary new music series, Solveig’s most recent feat, surely every pop producer’s dream, has been working with the legendary Madonna and producer her latest album M.D.N.A. The lead single from the album, ‘Give Me All Your Luvin’, is a Solveig produced masterpiece and is one of six cuts that has cemented this Frenchie’s production career in which he fuses dance and pop in a way so unique to how everyone else is doing it.
This year has been a busy one for Solveig and has seen him perform at Coachella, as well as a range of other music festivals across the globe, but you’ll be pleased to hear that there’s still plenty more opportunities to catch him live! His full schedule can be viewed at; www.martinsolveig.com/agenda/events-list.php but in short, you can see him in Italy, Belgium, Switzerland, the Netherlands, USA and Austria, so there really is no excuse for all you travellers!
