Biography

Solidaze, the primary recording and production pseudonym for Luis
Francisco Cardona, embraces urban beats and natural rhythms in both
his house and downtempo journeys. Always infused with deep soul and a
muted electro sensibility his work resonates with even the most
discerning listener. Paying attention to detail, Cardona is just as
comfortable doing live PAs and mashups for the dance floor as he is
recording in the Balanced studios. His live sets incorporate his own
material intertwined with the full spectrum of house and a dose of
Latin flavours. His production and engineering can be found in every
level of the Balanced catalogue as an artist as well as in the final
mastering stage. In 2006 Solidaze released the long awaited full
length Pleasure from Precision, featuring the vocals of Sarah
Michaelson (aka Mama Cutsworth), followed up by a remix collection of
this work.

Cardona moved from El Salvador to Winnipeg with his family when he was
10 years old. It was through this massive cultural change that his
eyes were opened to contrasting worlds and their music. Quickly
becoming impassioned with electronic music, he was led into production
where he has released music under the names Duende 6, Solidaze,
Orquesta Del Sol and Metesthetics. Cardona's work can be found on
Nordic Trax's Button Down Beats as well as each instalment of
Balanced's Northern Faction series. He compiled, mixed and mastered
the Solidaze Sessions which featured Viva's Jon Lemmon and Pure
Space's Joe Silva. Co-founding Winnipeg's Balanced Records, Cardona
has established himself as a mainstay in Winnipeg's producer culture
and the point man for digital audio expertise.
