Matt Brough, aka DJ Soloman, is a 20-year veteran of the Arizona dance scene. Playing clubs and festivals all over the country including Ultra Music Festival, Sound Wave Music Festival and the first ever W Hotel Music Festival, DJ Soloman has made a name for himself far beyond the Southwest for his intuitive gift to shake the dance floor. After a year away, DJ Soloman is excited to be back for Mazelpalooza 2016 and knows that the venue will be a perfect setting for a fun night.
“Coming back to Maya will be a lot of fun,” he said. “The pool, the lighting and the layout really adds to the overall feel of the party. The DJ booth is close to the dancefloor, and we definitely feed off the energy of the crowd there.”
DJ Soloman works closely with Steve LeVine Entertainment booking bands and DJs for the last 8 years. He has also been a resident DJ spinning weekly at Maya Day and Night Club and the W Scottsdale Hotel since they both opened, and got involved with Mazelpalooza back in 2013 when it was first hosted at Maya. He was also the DJ at Mazelpalooza 2014 hosted at Livewire and is happy to be back for a third year on Dec. 24.
“The crowd is always awesome,” said DJ Soloman. “The guests are so excited to be there and up for a good time to celebrate with each other.”
Most recently, DJ Soloman can be found playing at a variety of different venues and events including fitness classes, nightclubs, charity events and restaurants. He is a weekly resident at W Scottsdale Hotel, Maya Day and Nightclub, Dierks Bentley’s Whiskey Row, Farm & Craft and Fit Republic.
“I play tons of different types of events all year, and they are all fun in different ways,” he said. “Big dancefloors are always the best. Playing the right song, at the right time, and building the energy throughout the night is the best feeling for a DJ. The Mazelpalooza crowds are always so much fun.”
Outside of the clubs, DJ Soloman felt inspired by his passion for health and wellness and helped to start The Yoga Party AZ, a community based organization that donates proceeds to local charities. He believes strongly in helping to build the connection between fitness, music and charity. He works regularly with The Make A Wish Foundation and City of Hope’s Yoga for Hope event at Chase Field.
He has played alongside world-renowned recording artists like Tiësto, Deadmau5, Afrojack, Sebastian Ingrosso, Calvin Harris and Skrillex. And from the time the doors open at 9 p.m. on Dec. 24, DJ Soloman will be spinning his unique mix of music to get everyone out at the dance floor and partying all night long.
