Solidisco's "Feeling" is Big Room Disco House Goodness

Is this you? Solidisco No? It will be after you hear this: The Buffalo, New York based duo has DJed club nights alongside heavyweights such as Diplo and Steve Aoki, their records have been supported by the likes of A-Trak and Laidback Luke, and they have been heard on the airwaves of BBC Radio One. Matt and Don come from humble beginnings. Don's first performance was opening up at a Drum & Bass show in the hood playing hip-hop. "This was all on vinyl and I was super nervous at the time." Matt popped his cherry playing at an Edward 40 Hands party, which was "way less cool than it sounds." However, they say that it doesn't matter where they play. "We love big clubs and we love intimate clubs, as long as people are dancing we're having fun." The trademark Solidisco sound was born when the two met DJing in their hometown: a mixture of Armand van Helden, Daft Punk, with maybe a side of Cam'ron. Daft Punk is most likely one of their favorite artists. Since the birth of their sound, Solidisco quickly earned numerous Beatport chart positions, releases on some of the best labels in the industry, and captured the ears of the biggest tastemaking DJs in the industry. It's an original sound that beautifully walks the line between modern and classic with it's blend of 70's disco and today's house music, which they themselves call "big room disco house." Music isn't the only thing that they share interests in. They both have unique tastes. When asked what their favorite color is, they responded with this: Don: "Is digital camo a color?" Matt: "How about 24 Karat Gold?" Their taste in animals is equally original. "We wanted to have a monkey in the studio but there's a story Matt keeps telling about a spider monkey that ripped his owners face off out of nowhere. So we scrapped that plan, hoping to be able to hit Beatport Top 10 and get a pet penguin in 2013."
