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.
HISTORY IN THE MAKING (W/ SOL) Born in New Jersey in 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 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. Simultaneously, she was also teaching tennis lessons. With a growing devotion to youth initiatives, she recently connected with Robert Lacy (Notes For Notes Advisor) at a music conference in Las Vegas, NV and got 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. Notes for Notes has funded the construction of music studios in over 20+ Boys and Girls Clubs, in 18 cities across the U.S. Sol's additional interests include fashion and writing. She started a clothing 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, which is 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/producer. 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 venues such as Marquee Nightclub, Discopussy and Ferguson's Downtown. Sol has played support for some of the biggest artist in electronic music such as MALA, Jamie Jones, John Summit and more. Starting off as a lo-fi hip-hop producer, Sol is slowly starting to roll out her new upbeat house sound. With her favorite music to DJ being a mix of bass house, tech house and techno, Sol released her first original single, "Molly", with Sweet Heat Records, which is available to stream on Spotify, Apple Music and more. While working on more music releases and slowly building herself into larger 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 with 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.
