A producer, composer, and one-man synthesizer attack squad, Solovox is the sound of Earl Carlton Tietze III. He combines his original compositions of nasty future-funk, electro-house, and melodic downtempo with his remixes of other artists’ tracks to create a sound that is his and his alone…and he does it live, by hand
His keyboard chops remind one of 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.
A staple of the Northwest electronic scene, 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 for BridgeFest, causing the bridge to sway 2 feet up and down.
He has shared the bill with Orbital, Bassnectar, Beats Antique, Ott, Tipper, and countless others. In October 2012 he was featured on OPB’s ‘Oregon Art Beat.’ In 2013 he performed in Los Angeles, San Diego, Idaho’s Sun Valley, as well as numerous shows in the Northwest at festivals like Human Nature and What The Festival. So far in 2014 Solovox headlined Whiteout and Megabounce, two epic parties held annually in Portland.
He has remixed three tracks for Vokab Kompany including ‘Shine’ featuring Souleye, ‘Gunslinger’ for their album ‘Quit Sleep,’ and ‘Let It Fly’ featuring The Grouch and Souleye. He has done full video game sound design and composition, as well as tracks for Burn Notice
and A&E’s Biography. He is a sought-after instructor for Ableton Live, Reason, Cubase and electronic music production.
Whether improvising heavily with a downtempo acid jazz set or laying down dance tracks for the dancing crowds, Solovox is not a DJ…he is one of the most exciting electronic performers to be found anywhere.
