Solovox, the legendary ‘live electronic badass’ of Portland, Oregon returns to What T he Festival with another batch of nasty future-funk, electro-house, and remixes of other artists’ tracks that creates a sound that is his and his alone…and he does it live, by hand.
His keyboard chops remind one of Herbie Hancock smashing head-on into the Chemical Brothers. Mayhem usually ensues, and he consistently delivers one of the finest live electronic shows available anywhere.
In July of 2009 he became the first-ever all-electronic act in the history of T he Oregon Country Fair for their 40th Anniversary. He also headlined San Diego’s Elysium Festival, Mexico’s Fuente Eterno festival, Nexus in Los Angeles, and almost killed 2,000 revelers on top of the Hawthorne Bridge in 2010 for BridgeFest, causing the bridge to sway 2 feet up and down.
He has shared the bill with Orbital, Bassnectar, Beats Antique, Ott, Tipper, and countless others. In October 2012 he was featured on OPB’s ‘Oregon Art Beat.’ 2014 saw the release of his CD ‘Daring Feats Of Leisure,’ highlighting the best moments from his Friday Afternoon Concerts …a live podcast most Fridays at 3pm (Pacific) where he improvises and performs live from his studio to an online audience.
Whether improvising heavily with a downtempo acid jazz set or laying down dance tracks for the dancing crowds, Solovox is not a DJ…he is one of the most exciting electronic performers to be found anywhere. Follow him at www.solovox.com
