ART | Eden

MUSIC | Solomun at Zouk
“People have emotions,” German DJ Solomun once mused, “So why not on a dance floor?” With a style that blends energy and emotion into reverberating deep house beats, the beloved musical renegade makes a pit stop at Zouk to spin original hit tracks such as Friends and Fantazija.
