Only a sprinkling of artists within the industry can command the respect, accolades and appeal that Andrew Galea has attained. Even today, electronic music veterans reference his DJ and production work as ‘A master of his craft, across a multitude of house music forms’.
With over 20 years of experience tracked-up, Galea, even today continues to re-write history with the force and imagination of his latest tracks. Having achieved a succession of landmark roles (ex-head of A&R for Dave Lambert at Strictly Rhythm / Ikonik and current Director at Rekk’d Records) has firmly established him on the front-line of the performing, producing and remixing of legendary tunes – under his names such as Sol Brothers, Freestylers, DJ Bomba, Nightstylers, and Solasso.
“I have been incredibly lucky and performed pretty much all over the world – I just love travelling and enjoying the energy of the crowds I spin for. When this crisis is over, I still want to keep on spreading my House music gospel worldwide. I enjoy every gig, especially when the crowd is up for it and even to this day, I always get that warm, lovely feeling towards dance music every time I hear a great tune or play to a great crowd. ” – Andrew Galea
Production and Dj’ing are clear forte’s of Galea, who has received critical acclaim from sources such as Muzik Magazine, the MOBO Awards and his collaboration on Journeys By DJ – JDJ Triptonite (Jason Moore / Tomislav). Currently represented by Exactia agency, he has attracted a resounding praise of his talents which has seen remixes for the likes of Technotronic, Rihanna and his chart topper as Sol Brothers with Kathy Brown’s 90’s ‘Turn Me Out‘ along with his Freestylers B Boy Stance. This showcases the fact that Galea’s versatility and skill as a producer is still highly sought after from all corners of the music globe. Today is no different, with more recent productions for the likes of Robin S, Sonique Clarke, Sybil, Angie Brown and Big Brother’s Chelsea Singh forming a line for international airplay.“
