Solar Heavy is a music project created by Jon Eddy which draws inspiration from the depth and mysteries of the universe. That theme has stayed true since the start with great reception for his first original mixes like Solar Flare and The Kingdom. Since then he’s released many more singles as well as two EP releases. The second EP, ‘Lost in Space’ is due for release this month so now is an exciting time to discover all his work.
With vibes focused on the the complex of the universe and musical inspiration from artists like Pretty Lights there’s a core, experimental style of bringing together smooth electronic hooks with quick, glitchy rhythms.
One of his more successful releases and one of our favourites has to be ‘Solar Flare’ for that adrenaline on the synth and drums. Pair that with the dramatic strings it makes the atmosphere feel like a momentous space to zone into. Then once it hooks you in you’re shot across space as the dynamic layers keep building.

A track from his latest EP ‘Lost in Space’ that I’ve taken a fancy to is ‘Under the night sky’. A much more downtempo and chilled sound to his usual with sparse keys and muffled reverb work. It really gives the vibe of the infinite size of space and the beauty to it, giving you a relaxing, floating sensation. Check it out:
