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. His production and engineering can be found throughout the early releases 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. Co-founding Balanced Records in 2001, Cardona has established his legacy in Winnipeg's DJ and electronic producer culture opting for less frequent, but highly sought after DJ sets to this day.
