Sunset Boat After-Party w/ Special guest TBA!


When Solar began Djing in the early 90's, San Francisco's Clubs and Raves were places where musically, anything could happen. To be a DJ in this time and place meant having a fierce dedication to the craft of creating electrifying music for people to dance all night. A deep record collection and bold creativity were what people valued in the Djs they would go hear every weekend.

In 1994, Solar and a couple other Djs began bringing a sound system and a generator to the Berkeley Marina for free gatherings to dance and watch the sun set behind the San Francisco skyline. As these Sunset parties grew from dozens to hundreds, and now thousands of attendees, Solar become one San Francisco's best loved DJs. Known for his eclectic sets, blending Techno, Disco, House, Electro and electronic music with the energy of Punk and Psychedelic Rock, Solar has built a loyal following among a discerning crowd of dancers and party goers used to hearing every touring DJ you've ever heard of. Nearly twenty years of playing music for crowds large and small has evolved a style of Djing that seamlessly fuses the best of classic and modern dance music. More recently as resident and co-creator of the No Way Back parties, Solar has earned the reputation of a DJ devoted to the art of mixing and selecting music without regard to ephemeral fashion, trends or fads.

Galen and his fellow cohorts of Pacificsound, now known as Sunset Sound System, have thrown down hundreds of the now legendary SUNSET Parties. The success and unparalleled vibe of SUNSET led to the expansion of Pacificsound's events, including the highly revered SUNSET Boat Party on the San Francisco Bay, the newly revived 3-day camping style festival "SUNSET Campout”, and SUNSET Island: an electronic music picnic festival on Treasure Island.

Although Galen can been defined as a San Francisco DJ staple, traveling has landed him guest slots at events throughout the United States and internationally. Over the years, he has played alongside countless renowned artists and in countries such as the UK, France, Italy, China, Canada, Portugal, Spain, and Mexico. His dj sets reflect not only a synchronous relationship with electronic compositions but also a profound knowledge and appreciation of genres such as: funk, soul, jazz, rare-groove and hip-hop.His mixing ability enables him to smoothly and effortlessly flow between styles within a single set, adept at adjusting his sound to meet nearly any situation.

Galen is an artist of continual evolvement. His graduation from San Francisco State University, with an Electronic Music degree, propelled him into the studio once again. Previous collaborations have featured such artists as Astral Matrix, Tony Senghore, and Omar. However, more recently he has partnered with Dirtybird Artist Justin Martin to produce a 2 track ep. Before that with Claude VonStroke. to remix ‘Jam on It’ by 80’s sensation Nucleus. Since then he also produced 2 solo releases on Utensil and Tango Recordings. Expect more music in to come in 2013 including a remix off Lopazz's "I Feel Love" from his forthcoming album on Get Physical Music.
