He picked up his musical style whilst touring with the Prod in mid 90’s­ it is a mix of tuff Electrobreaks, old skool samples, Hip Hop, rock and electro known as Miami Bass.

The east London lad who grew up listening to pirate radios and cut his teeth as a production assistant at the famous Sour studios really is a Jedi master of sonic science: drop the needle on an Ed Solo record and you'll soon know about it - no one makes club music that cuts through a soundsystem quite like him.

About Us

Over the past nine years, IllumiNaughty’s assembly of committed musicians, performers and artistes, have worked tirelessly to produce one of the UK’s most ambitious and adventurous dance music events, described by many as an ‘experience’ rather than simply another club night.

IllumiNaughty’s Indoor Festival merges bass-heavy beats, circus performance and carnival carnage to bring you an unforgettable, festival frenzy! Bowlers Exhibition Centre, once transformed into a visual wonderland, will provide the backdrop for the event which runs across four arenas, each complete with themed décor, lighting, lasers, circus performers and more headline acts that you could shake a stick at!

The event offers music for all tastes, from Breaks and Electro to Psychedelic Trance, Drum n Bass and even some Eleco-swing thrown in for good measure, providing enough entertainment for the 2,000+ attendees who flood the doors from 10pm onwards.

Additionally, the outdoor area is equipped with marque, burger van and sound system topped off with outdoor fire shows to keep the smokers entertained! If you've had enough dancing and fancy a spot of shopping, an Indian head massage or a cup of chai, pop into the Market Hall and check out the array goodies on offer.
