Lover. Fighter. Prophet. Freak magnet. Time-traveler. Musician, photographer and designer Jimmy Edgar is a wayward star-child streaking across the cosmic dance-floor. Endowed with a supernatural feel for futuristic funk, the Detroit native has been bleeping and grinding about the Milky Way since he was a teenage humanoid. While his peers were worrying about their grades and popularity Edgar was spinning alongside his hometown's DJ heroes and programming intricate beats that were unquestionably interplanetary communication disguised as dance music.
Armed with more than ten years of DJ experience, Vin Sol's masterful live sets, production, critically acclaimed mix tapes, and dedication to the tradition of party rocking have made him one of the most influential and in demand DJs around. Born and raised in San Francisco Vin is known as a master of the profession with a forward thinking approach to DJing and an unusually deep knowledge of music history. These skills collide in his production, whether it be with his group Caligula or his own projects. Influenced by the Bay Area's diverse music scene of the 1990's, Vin began digging for rock, soul, funk and disco, club and hip hop records as a kid and his legendary collection will never stop growing.
Vin's musical wizardry hasn't gone unnoticed by The Fader, XLR8R, and local press. In 2008, he was the winner of Smirnoff and 7X7's Best DJ in SF competition and he is just getting warmed up . . . Look for Vin in New York, where his latest rare finds are hitting the clubs.
