As a 10-year veteran of the Arizona dance scene, DJ Soloman has become popular across the Southwest and beyond for his intuitive gift for rocking the dance floor. Soloman is most well known for having the unique talent to be able to spin any kind of dance music.
While Soloman’s first love is funky progressive house, his limitless range allows him to spin everything from hip-hop and breakbeat to jungle, trance, acid jazz and more.
During Soloman’s nightlife career so far, he has produced radio mix shows for Arizona State University’s KASR, shared the stage with world renowned recording artists like Tiesto and Paul van Dyk, opened for such incredible headlining DJs, such as Kaskade, Dirty South and Manufactured Superstars, and has been a resident DJ at ground breaking Arizona nightclubs including Myst, Club Freedom and Insomnia. When the Super Bowl was brought to Arizona in 2008, Soloman opened up for national recording artists Next and P. Diddy for the highly acclaimed Anheuser-Busch “Bud Bowl” block party.
DJ Soloman has won many awards in the past, but in 2008 he was named winner of “Phoenix New Times DJ Spin Off Competition” at Myst Nightclub. This victory assured him a slot at the 10th Anniversary Ultra Music Festival in Miami during the Winter Music Conference. During the conference Soloman spun at the Future Sound of Breaks WMC Version 6.0, which is quoted to be “the largest electro breakbeat event in history.”
Though DJ Soloman has been spinning occasional shows at the Axis/Radius for the past three years, it wasn’t until June 3, 2011, that he took over as resident DJ of #REPUBLICFridays at the popular Scottsdale nightclub. Since then he has opened for some of the biggest names in the industry, such as Morgan Page, ATB, Bad Boy Bill, Matt Darey and Nicky Romero.
Soloman is also the Thursday night resident for Fashion FWD at the W Scottsdale and finds himself doing on-offs at other local night spots all around the valley.
