Biography

Solomon isn’t your everyday magician. He doesn’t know how to pull a white rabbit out of a hat or your 6 of Clubs from the deck. But what the Bay Area-based music wizard can do is ELEVATE you on the dance floor. This was clear from the time of his first gig in ‘89, when he used nothing more than a tape deck and cd player to transform a middle school prom into a raging pre-adolescent night club that terrified the chaperones. Ever since, he’s spread his innovative sound in clubs from here to China.

Solomon’s specialty is something he always called “Pop Turntablism.” It’s a niche of music that fuses scratching, beat juggling, word play, and live remixing with an eclectic mix of funk, soul, hip hop and rock tracks. It’s an emerging genre now popularly known as “Mashup.” And within this community, Solomon shines. As a producer, he was among an elite group of djs and producers comprising the Crooklyn Clan Vault. The website has become one of the main distribution hubs for dj mashups and has become an invaluable tool for promoting Solomon’s unique and original production sound.

His musical stylings have captured the imagination of some of today’s biggest music stars and he’s recently performed with The Black Eyed Peas, Digital Underground, De La Soul, Ozomotli, Groove Collective, Jurassic 5, Lyrics Born, Patti Labelle, DJ AM and Dan the Automator - just to name a few. And naturally, he’s caught the eye of club promoters everywhere. Solomon has residencies all over the Western US. From San Fran to Sacto, San Diego to Scottsdale.
