San Francisco Ecstatic Dance | The Church of 8 Wheels | Sunday, 03. September 2017

1/21 - Sol Rising (LA)
Yin Yoga Flow: Lucia Grace

Sol Rising’s original soundscapes evoke feelings of inspiration and bliss through an eclectic mix of electronic music, mid-tempo house, chill-trap, ambient and hip-hop.

Born in Vancouver BC, raised in Fairfield Iowa, Sol Rising began meditating at age four with a walking mantra technique. His mother took him to visit numerous spiritual teachers, who inspired him on the spiritual path he walks today. As a teenager, he became a hip hop fanatic. His rooted interest in hip hop led him to learning the art of scratching — using turntables as musical instruments. Sol Rising soon became one of America’s top scratch DJs, winning second place at the DMC, the world’s most prestigious DJ competition.

After graduating in the top 5% of his accounting class at University of Iowa, he realized accounting was not his path. A journey to India illuminated his true calling — to light up people’s awareness of their true nature through music. This lead him to study audio engineering and production at Pyramind Studios in San Francisco, CA.

Now a successful Producer/DJ, with over 6 albums released, Sol Rising plays events throughout the US, Canada, Europe, Asia and Australia at festivals such as Wanderlust, Burning Man, Symbiosis and Lightning in a Bottle. Sol Rising has been featured in major media outlets including the Yoga Journal, Washington Post, and his music has been streamed over 2 million times on Spotify and 1 million on Soundcloud.
