Native New Yorker David Solero started his professional disc jockey duties back when 45s and belt-drive turntables were the norm. He hung out in the DJ booth of the city's most legendary rent party, The Loft, and the Greenwich Village disco inferno, Paradise Garage. His SoBe Soul nights at Lounge 16, cosponsored by Good Peoples Entertainment, brings soulful house, garage classics, and rare grooves to a city that's more apt to promote dance music for the sunken-eyed rather than the funkdafied.
