Efdemin aka Phillip Sollmann is a DJ, producer and composer based in Berlin. He is known for his deep, psychedelic, and idiosyncratic take on both house and techno. Phillip has released numerous 12”s on various labels, three albums on dial records followed by a fourth one on Ostgut Ton in 2019. He holds a long running residency at Berghain.
Sollmann has remixed Depeche Mode, Moby, Area Negrot, Herbert, Max Richter, Tadeo or Orlando Voorn to name a few. On his own label naïf, Phillip Sollmann has released music by Nina Kraviz, Jeroen Search and Alter Ego, among many others.
Outside his career as a DJ, Phillip Sollmann is active in the fields of sound research, installation-based works and improvised music. The project ‘Modular Organ System’ is a collaboration with Konrad Sprenger and was presented as a large scale sound installation at CTM Festival 2022, including performances with Kali Malone, Stephen O’ Malley and Ellen Arkbro and others.
Sollmann has worked with the contemporary Ensemble Musikfabrik for his composition „Monophonie“ and was commissioned by the Zafraan Ensemble in 2019. Live performances with the Trio Ambarchi/Sollmann/Sprenger, the drone-band PNIN (with Nika Son) and the improv duo with John Guertler consume the rest of his spare time between gigs and studio work.
