Vancouver producer and multi-instrumentalist Adam Wazonek aka SOLITAIRE signed to future funk tastemakers Keats//Collective (Saint Pepsi, Flamingosis) in march of 2015 for his well received EP, Delayed Pleasure.
Taking a short sabbatical from creating infectiously danceable disco, he switched to focus on his Lo-Fi side project ‘Wazonek’, releasing a cassette, ‘Simple Life’. Now, he’s back with a full length SOLITAIRE album entitled ‘Double Life’, due out in the fall. While September is upon us, prepare for an Indian summer with his follow up to his first single ‘I Just Know That Love Is Gonna Find You Someday’. ‘Summer Friend’ will keep the sunshine rolling in all autumn long.

Not long ago I was in a line up at Starbucks getting my non fat non dairy skim vegan with sprouts and quinoa latté, when I realized I am out of Shillings! Dag nabbit. How else was I to hydrate myself over my laptop riddled existence at the local coffee hangout with the rest of my fellow writers?! When out of NOWHERE this …this DUDE swoops in with a gold coin and offers to pick up my beverage. I literally clicked my boat shoe heels together in mid-air joy. Okay that scenario was a lie. But he is a swell guy.
And he can sing! check it out! “Eyes On You” just dropped so put your Ears On It. Oh dad jokes.
His “The Balance” EP is slated for June 10th. So hide your daughters. I’ve seen him melt the panties off of my own girlfriend at a live show.
-Vinny Guap. We out.
