October 20, 2023 – Today, Solardo hits down on Armada Music with their highly-anticipated remix of Something Good’s ‘Before Dawn’ (feat. Sansa). A set staple throughout the summer, from Parklife to Creamfields South to Tomorrowland, the UK heavyweights add their distinctive flair to Yotto and Karolus’s dance floor starter, released earlier this year under their Something Good alias.

“We have always been fans of Yotto and his productions. When he asked us to remix Before Dawn from his Something Good moniker, we knew we could do something special with the piano breakdown. This remix has given us a real moment in our festival sets this summer and now we are excited to finally see this one released,” says Solardo.  

The second record from Something Good following their 2022 hit ‘Rhythm (Of The Night)’, ‘Before Dawn’ (feat. Sansa) was one of Yotto and Karolus’ earliest studio outputs, resurrected this year to reflect their sonic journey and production prowess. With a fresh take that jumps on the infectious melody and vocal allure of the original record, Solardo proves that everything they touch turns to gold.  

About Solardo 

Refusing to be pigeonholed into any one dance genre, the UK’s Solardo has long proven their ability as musical chameleons, resulting in a growing discography that's as impressively varied as it is seamless. From huge techno chart-topper “Riser” to outdoor anthem "I Can't Wait" alongside Tiësto and Poppy Baskcomb or 2019's revision of Marshall Jefferson's timeless "Move Your Body," it's clear that Solardo can simply do no wrong. From playing for epic crowds at festivals like Glastonbury, Tomorrowland, EDC Las Vegas, Ultra Music Festival Miami, Creamfields, and Parklife to some of the world’s biggest super clubs as well as some of the world’s most respected clubs, Solardo adapt to whichever crowd is put in front of them. 

James Eliot and Mark Richards cut their teeth on the underground of the Manchester club scene, and even years into their career they could still be found fraternizing with their fans at afterparties — a clear sign of their dedication and love for the club scene. From those early days playing local Manchester haunts to playing every major festival in the US and Europe, they have come an incredibly long way and continue to propel higher up the ranks of dance music. 

Their innovative sound has evolved from the popular tech house template to incorporate elements of techno, house, progressive, electro and trance in one heady blend, and now has become the dominant style in the bigger house clubs and festivals across the world— with over 200 million streams to their name, and their huge ‘XTC’ becoming one of the biggest tracks in Ibiza in its year of release. “We just make whatever we're making, but we just don't really categorize it” they explain. “We just make tunes, ideally, just for the dance floor and whatever it gets classified as, is what it is. We don't go out and start thinking — oh, we're going to go techno— because we just evolved our sound massively from when we first released music to now. And it will continue to keep on evolving and we'll just keep on doing what we're doing and whatever that might be, where it gets classified as whatever. As long as all the clubs and the festivals are loving it, we're more than happy.”
