HISTORY IN THE MAKING (W/ SOL)
Sol is known around the Las Vegas area as one of the fastest growing female DJ/Producers in the electronic scene. Today, we take a deep dive with Sol and get to know her story beyond the music. Outside of music, Sol is a writer, athlete and contributor to the youth community around the city.
Born in New Jersey 1998, Sol quickly moved to the west coast, touching down in Las Vegas with her family in the year 2000. Settling in Northwest Las Vegas, she attended Arbor View High School. Growing up an athlete, Sol participated in her high school dance team and did cheer outside of school. A veteran cheerleader, she competed at the highest of levels, joining global tournaments with the her team, the California All-Stars, who she was able to take 2nd place with in The Cheerleading Worlds Tournament.
Post high-school, Sol began giving back to her beloved team by becoming a cheer coach, teaching cheerleaders as young as 5-years-old. She also taught tennis lessons to children as well. A lover of spending time with youth for great causes, she was able to connect with Robert Lacy (Notes For Notes Advisor) at a music conference in Las Vegas, NV and get her foot in the door working with Notes For Notes, a non-profit organization that provides free access to musical instruments, music production equipment and more, by funding the construction of music studios in over 20+ Boys and Girls Clubs in 18 cities across the U.S.
Other interests include fashion and writing. She started a brand called Something Different with her brother, which is not only the name of their streetwear apparel company, but also the title of her upcoming book set to release on Amazon and more in 2023. Something Different as a clothing brand, takes a skate-style approach within its design and provides merchandise such as hats and tee shirts. Her book, which is going through finishing touches before its publication, reflects on Sol's life and covers topics such as spirituality, optimism, and mental health. A lifelong writer, Sol was known as the host of Open Mic Slam Poetry at Juicy Beats before she ever began promoting herself as a DJ. During the pandemic (early 2021), Sol shifted gears into music, landing a DJ instructor who later introduced her to SPTLGHT Entertainment, who has partnerships with several music venues across Las Vegas. Since her first b2b DJ set at the famous Sunday house-brunch at 18Bin in the summer of 2021, she has exploded onto the scene, playing crowds of almost a thousand people in major Las Vegas venues such as Discopussy and Ferguson's Downtown. Sol is currently booked to play Marquee Nightclub with the world-famous house music record label, Abode. Abode and Pollen will be presenting their first ever Abode Vegas Music Festival, in late-April 2022. Besides Sol, you can also catch DJ sets by an all-star lineup such as Fatboy Slim, Green Velvet, Sonny Fodera and more.
Starting off as a lo-fi hip-hop producer, Sol is slowly starting to roll out her new house sound. Her current favorite music to play has been a mix of bass house, tech house and techno. Found on Soundcloud and YouTube at this time, her original music is in the process of being distributed to every major platform such as Spotify, Apple Music, Pandora and more. While working on her expansion with music releases and slowly building herself into larger clubs and line-ups, Sol also spins private events as an open-format, multi-genre DJ. She's an expert at asking the right music-driven questions to clients in advance and then being able to play to their preferences at their booked event later. An all-around artist, she simply enjoys being around music and getting dance-floors moving. This 23-year-old creative is not disappearing from the music scene anytime soon. We suggest you follow her on Instagram to watch history in the making. To get Sol out at your next event, you can mention her name on our booking form here.
