Mladen Solomun, better known under his stage name Solomun, is a Bosnian-German DJ. He is a four-time DJ Awards winner for Best Producer, Best DJ and Best Melodic House DJ
After Solomun was born in Travnik, Yugoslavia (today Bosnia and Herzegovina) he moved to Hamburg with his family, where he grew up. As a young boy, he worked for his father in construction. Eventually, he discovered that he really enjoyed filmmaking. He founded a small production company with a few friends, where they created short films together.
He worked in film for about five years before discovering that music was his passion. His cousin, who frequented nightclubs, brought him tapes whenever he came to town. These tapes showed Solomun that there is more to music than just commercial radio. From then on, he started purchasing vinyl records, and eventually playing at House of Youth at the age of 16 for other teenagers.
After taking a break from music, he started producing and creating music at the age of 23. Similar Regional Artists: UMEK (SLO) Mike Vale (SLO), Ilija Djokovic (SRB), Rub A Dub (BiH), Flojd Covic (BiH), Zlatinchi (BiH) Sinisa Tamamovic (BiH), Mladen Tomic (BiH), Forniva (BiH), Andrew Meller (SRB) .
