I think Seveli is right, this guy desperately deserves his own thread.

Solomun was born in Bosnia in 1975 but grew up in Hamburg. He is a co-founder of Diynamic (and its sub-label '2DIY4'). The Diynamic artist roster includes names like Adriatique, Kollektiv Turmstrasse, Undercatt and some more. The sound is (at least I'd say so) between (sometimes 'Commercial') House and Techno..Also, many tracks include live instruments (e.g. https://www.beatport.com/track/voix-gra ... on/8546619)
Solomun is also known to be a prolific remixer, having done remixes for the likes of Lana Del Rey, Paul Kalkbrenner and Foals among others.
His summer residency ('Solomun +1') is at Pacha (on sundays) and is considered to be one of the best. He always (only) has one guest..some of this years guests were: Sven Väth, Richie Hawtin, Dixon, Âme, Adriatique, Pete Tong. Additionally he had another residency ('Solomun + Live') at both Destino and Ushuaïa.
For 2016, he was voted #5 best DJ by the readers of Resident Advisor.

Great artist, definetely deserves his own thread. I'm suprised the usual bums haven't started complaining.

Here's the first piece of music I heard from him. I'll never forget it, so simple yet so catchy. Around 2012 or so

Pretty much same here (think it was early 2013 actually), even though I discovered him from these two "simple yet so catchy" tracks.
