The man from San Fran

26-03-2014 | 17.51

The name Solar might still be a bit unknown to quite a few. This San Francisco DJ will play in our booth alongside Dixon, Alex From Tokyo and Job Jobse this Sunday. He was also present at the Innervisions Überall night in Panorama Bar last weekend and his performance was one of the highlights. The fact that Solar played in Berlin last week and here in Trouw in a couple of days, is no coincidence. Actually, there’s a nice story to be told about this.

Zondag staan ze voor de Pachanga Boys, nog twee van mijn lievelings-dj’s. Vergeet dan vooral geen confetti mee te nemen!
