SOLOVOX - A producer, composer, and one-man synthesizer attack squad, Solovox is the sound of Earl Carlton Tietze III. He starts with his own original music which spans the genres of house, glitch-hop, breaks, electro, cosmic funk, ambient, and downtempo acid jazz. He also remixes other artists' tracks and throws those in for good measure. Then, in the live environment, he performs with live synth, organ, and piano playing that is like Herbie Hancock smashing head-on into the Chemical Brothers. Mayhem usually ensues, and he consistently delivers one of the finest live electronic shows available anywhere.
He has recently remixed Vokab Company's single 'Shine' featuring Souleye, as well as 'Gunslinger' for their new album 'Quit Sleep.' He is also doing remix work for Hulk Hogan and numerous commercial clients. His music has been heard on Burn Notice as well as A&E's Biography. As a live performer his legend in Portland, Oregon and the Northwest continues to grow. In July of 2009 he became the first-ever all-electronic act in the history of The Oregon Country Fair for their 40th Anniversary. He also headlined San Diego's Elysium Festival, Mexico's Fuente Eterno festival, Nexus in Los Angeles, and almost killed 2,000 revelers on top of the Hawthorne Bridge in 2010, causing the bridge to sway 2 feet up and down.
Whether improvising heavily with a downtempo acid jazz set or laying down dance tracks at a club, Solovox is not a DJ...he is one of the most exciting electronic performers to be found anywhere.
