Germany’s Solee is heading downunder

Normen Flaskamp aka. Solee is the Stuttgart born, Berlin-based producer and DJ who has been flying under the radar for almost two decades. With four studio albums and dozens of EP’s under his belt, Solee’s production style blends the sound of Berlin’s gritty underground techno scene, with intricate melodies and rich analogue synthesisers of the 80s and 90s. “I’ve always made music which comes from my inner feelings, without looking to any current trends or hypes”.

Solee releases all of his projects on his very own record label ‘Parquet’ which was initiated in 2006. It didn’t take long for this record label to gain some series momentum, picking up international artists such as Hunter/Game and Dominik Eulberg. His most recent project is a two-track release under Parquet Records ‘Saga’ and ‘Watoto’ both songs featuring rich and complex melodic phrases that perfectly summarise the essence of his sound. Catch these tracks and more live at one of his upcoming Aussie shows this summer.

Normen Flaskamp began producing back in 1999 and was releasing records under various guises on different labels soon after. But it was in 2006 that his Solee alias was born, propelling him to new heights in the house and techno realm. In the same year, he decided to take the reins into his own hands and set up his record-label Parquet Recordings to disseminate his distinctive take on melodic techno, tech & deep house.

Aside from his revered imprint, Solee’s productions have graced some of the best-known underground record-labels in the world: Noir Music, Get Physical Music, John Digweed´s Bedrock, Sharam´s Yoshitoshi Recordings or Hernan Catteo´s Sudbeat only to name a few. Having played across Europe and international hotspots like Miami, Moscow, Tel Aviv, Buenos Aires, New York and more, he’s been able to communicate his typical energetic & melodic “Solee-sound” to crowds in many different countries all over the world.
