After years honing his craft on the French clubbing circuit, 2011 saw Martin Solveig (Martin Laurent Picandet) achieve true international superstardom. Selling over two million copies of his hit single "Hello" earned him global recognition and put him on the 2012 billing of some of the world's biggest festivals such as Ultra Music Festival, Coachella, Tomorrowland and Electric Daisy Carnival among others.
Producing six tracks for Madonna's 2012 "MDNA" album, before accompanying the Pop-Queen on multiple dates across her world tour, 2013 saw Martin challenge his creativity in more spontaneous ways, working with newcomers such as "The Cataracs" and young rapper "Kyle" to release one of 2013's summer anthem's "Hey Now".
An accident with a festival CO2 cannon sparked Martin's latest, most creative project yet - BLOW. What was originally planned as a collaborative club track with Laidback Luke quickly evolved into an innovative 5-part video project unlike anything ever seen before. Several quirky commercials about a mysterious product coined "The Spray of Life" piqued the viewers' curiosity, swiftly followed by a hilarious music video that revealed the full story and extent of Solveig's imagination.
With no intention of slowing down, Martin is currently back in the studio working on fresh material and gearing up for his summer 2014 residencies. Bringing his thumping, fun-filled sounds to the shores of Ibiza and bright lights of Vegas, 2014 is set to be Martin's biggest year yet!
