A double first for Solarstone with 'A Long Way From Home'

A Long Way From Home’ is a double first for Solarstone, with his first collaboration with Darren Tate (a producer he’s always admired) and his first ever outing on Anjunabeats. The cherry on top: working again with Julie Scott.

Trance titans Darren Tate and Solarstone have been pivotal artists in dance music for over twenty years. Darren is a UK Top 10 charting producer who, in 2022, joined forces with Above & Beyond’s Jono Grant to form JODA. Released on Anjunabeats, JODA’s self-titled debut album shot to #1 on the iTunes US Dance chart and has since seen over 10 million combined streams.

Irish producer Solarstone is set for an international tour this year with stops in Poland, the Netherlands, Ibiza and Malta. His balearic trance anthem ‘Seven Cities’ has been re-released 3 times and sold in excess of 500,000 copies, earning support from Armin van Buuren, Giuseppe Ottaviani, Ferry Corsten, Paul van Dyk and more.

Scottish-born musician and vocalist Julie Scott is a former member of the accomplished Dutch band Mizpaha and renowned jazz ensemble Dash!. She’s also worked with members of the Residentie Orchestra and, in 2008, co-wrote and recorded several tracks on Solarstone’s albums ‘Rain Stars Eternal’, ‘Touchstone’ & ‘One’

‘A Long Way From Home’ has been doing the rounds as a secret ID since being shared with DJs and tastemakers last October, with support from Nicole Moudaber, ANNA, Joris Voorn, Hernán Cattáneo, Maceo Plex, Joseph Capriati, Carl Craig, Nora En Pure and more. The record is a distant reach from the artists’ usual styles, but is executed with the skill and finesse of producers at the top of their game.
