"Beloved San francisco's own Dj Solar is one of the main dj’s behind the infamous Pacificsound's legendary Sunset Parties and Boat Parties. Free outdoor events held in some of the bay area’s most beautiful spots attracting thousands of people every time. Or Sunset cruises underneath the Golden Gate Bridge. Recent guests that have graced the decks include The Wighnomy Brothers, Superpitcher, Dan Ghenacia and Sascha Funke.
Solar also holds down 2 other residencies. Bionic www.bionicsf.com and Bang The Box www.myspace.com/bangtheboxsf, the latter being the longest running house/techno night in SF.
His dj skills often referred to “the dj’s dj” have brought him to far away places such as Europe, Mexico and Japan." -nvraves.com
DJ Solar is a vet of the SF house music scene who’s name conjures up the very essence what San Francisco house is about. Through his sets with the Sunset crew and off the hook Bionic parties, Solar continues to shape and define the role of house music in Today’s San Francisco Scene. Usually focusing on Paradise Garage sounds of old with the bumping funk of traditional San Franciscpo house stylings, Solar tends to focus mainly on his skills to build the hype about him rather than heavy self promotion. Looks like the strategy is working.
