In the ever changing illustration of what symbolizes house music today, a young entrant from Macedonia, Alek Soltirov, has immersed the uncompromising sounds of hip hop, old school funk and soul and crafted into his own signature house blend. His production trademark is by resampling the behemoths such as Patrice Rushen, Al Green, George Benson, James Brown, Dr. Dre, Tupac, resulting in an intrinsic funky house sound. Moreover, Alek is not afraid to demonstrate his own independent interpretation of deep and funky driven house. As such, his impressive portfolio has been recognized by the likes of Mark Farina, DJ Sneak, Doc Link, Dj Heather on multiple occasions.
2010 was the year that put things in perspective. Chicago and deep house captured his attention and later became the very inspiration of his deep and groove sound. Frankie Knuckles, Derrick Carter, Mark Farina, Tommy Largo, Delano Smith, Kerri Chandler, Miguel Migs were the few visionaries that ignited his production efforts in 2013.
Infused with distinct techniques that gush contentment, Alek’s production leaves relentless energy on the house music paradigm. Despite his young age, the maturity of Alek Soltirov’s output is evident and unceasing on labels such as Salted Music, Fogbank Recordings, Good For You Records, Mind Medicine, Emby, Doin Work Records, Whitebeard Recordings-Chicago, Fullhouse Digital, Home Again Recordings Digital, Different Attitudes, King Street Sounds, Juiced Music, Greenhouse Recordings, Mjuzieekal Education, Pocket Jacks Trax, Mikita Skyy, Cruise Music, Grin Music.
