For tennis-loving Martin Solveig, it was audience participation that gave the pop-coloured electro-house DJ his most memorable moments of 2013. “Surfing a couple of impressive crowds, like in Tomorrowland, even if I lost my clothes in the process, or in [Belgian festival] Laundry Day.” Solveig’s other (fully-clothed) shows included two big residencies.
“I’ve been surprised in a good way by my first shows as [a] Pacha Ibiza resident, and decided to do more next year. I’m enjoying my XS/Encore Beach Las Vegas residency a lot.” In terms of production, Solveig is just finishing a video project for ‘Blow’, his heavier electro collaboration with Laidback Luke — a slight departure, but one that Solveig is fully onboard with. “It’s been a transition year and I love it. I’m working on new directions, new projects. Love the change.”
