With an approach to dance beats that is all his own, the man known as Soledrifter (aka Dmitry Soledrifter) makes music that stirs the spirit to move. After immigrating from Moscow, Russia to Halifax,Canada in 2001, this musician-turned-house-music-producer began churning out tracks in his basement beat kitchen. After many well-received EPs released by Nova Scotia-based label Atlantic Standard Recordings (ASR), he had releases on Toronto-based labels Stickman and Slush and several amazing remixes (all released under the former aliases Deemah, D_Mon, Demar).It wasn't long before his work started pricking up ears throughout the house music industry.
In 2005 (as Deemah) he enters a Future Music magazine contest to remix the Kill Bill theme and wins it hands down . Shortly after he wins a Dj Dan remix battle taking the top spot.
He hits the stage at the Evolve festival in Nova Scotia around the same year doing one of his short lived live PAs alongside house music veterans DJ Sneak and DJ Dan.
Releasing his “Halifax Explosion” EP on Chicago's D’lectable Recordings in 2006 would lead to the track “Words” being included on DJ Heather’s “House of Om” Mix (CD/vinyl) for OM Records the same year. Remixes and releases on Christian Alvarez’s Delecto Recordings, Miguel Migs’ Salted Music, King Street Sounds, 294 Records,Amenti Music, Good Stuff Recordings, Musol, SoulHeat Records have all followed since then, making Soledrifter’s tracks among the hottest commodities in house music and some of the top tracks on download store sales charts.You can also find his music on Hed Kandi Beach House 2014 compilation. With his tireless work ethic, undeniable talent behind the mixing desk, and ear for uncommon sounds and textures, Soledrifter's attention is focused not on the trends, but on the intimate details of his productions. With new music always cooking on the stove, his unique recipes are always a delightful fusion of dance floor fever and head-nodding whiplash.
Soledrifter's music has been supported by the industry's heavy weights,such as Richard Earnshaw, Grant Nelson, Mark Farina, Onionz, Miguel Migs, Giom, Random Soul,Groove Assassin,Husky, Stonebridge, Dave Mayer,Terry Hunter, Erick Morillo,Jask, DJ Mes and many more.
