Jeremy Sole is on a mission to show how music is a singular universal language, and that each culture’s rhythms and melodies are no more than slang–different accents of the same mother tongue. His DJ sets, remixes and original compositions juxtapose world sounds and experimental beats into a sonic ritual – a celebration of life out loud.

As Co-Founder and resident deejay of “Afro Funké”, Sole and his partners drew a loyal crowd every week for 15 years. This was his arena for Afrobeat, Latin, Brazilian, Indian, Jamaican and other authentic and remixed world rhythms. Sole returned to his underground roots with “theLIFT”, partnering with DJ Wiseacre to produce the roaming, monthly, all-night warehouse events series featuring legendary talent like Bonobo, Nickodemus, Danny Krivit, Gaslamp Killer, DJ Scruff, Lefto, Erykah Badu and Gilles Peterson gracing their stages. What started at Sole’s small downtown loft, grew to well over 1200 people by their one-year anniversary. Since then, they have thrown theLIFT in New York City, Palm Springs, Miami, Portugal, London, and San Francisco, in addition to monthly shows in downtown Los Angeles. Jeremy has had the honor of sharing the stage and recording in the studio with hundreds of his inspirations, including Roy Ayers, Tony Allen, Stevie Wonder, Gil Scott Heron, Seu Jorge, Fat Freddy’s Drop, Parliament, Lee Scratch Perry, and Quantic. Gilles Peterson (BBC Radio1), widely known as the most influential tastemaker of our generation, named Sole as “#2 DJ OF THE YEAR 2011” as well as “RADIO SHOW OF THE YEAR 2014”. in January 2017, Peterson expanded his new, award winning “Worldwide FM” radio to feature an ongoing series from around the world, and hired Sole to host, mix, and produce the weekly 6-hour L.A. show. Sole’s DJ performance at Coachella 2012 played a large part in further embedding his name as a pioneer in the burgeoning “Global Bass” scene. This, by no means, defines his sound nor his “scene”. He remains a free agent – moving fluidly between any and all cliques that appreciate good music.

Sole was the last DJ to open for Ray Charles, deejayed for Sly Stone’s birthday party, was guest DJ at Low End Theory with James Blake, and had the distinct honor of mixing at the California Democratic Party’s Election Night Celebration – performing for over 10,000 people at the exact moment when Barack Obama officially became the 44th President. In 2015, Ninja Tune recording artist Bonobo became a fan of this deep and wildly eclectic sound and booked Sole as opening act for his North American tour. Sole has also toured as opening act for his friend Bonobo for three separate times, including a full North American tour.

In 2006 Sole agreed to join the ranks of KCRW, what New York Times dubbed the “most influential radio station in the country,”. You can tune into Sole every Wednesday at midnight in Los Angeles on 89.9 KCRW (or worldwide, streaming and archived at

➤ How it works:

We open with a special warmup yoga or movement class facilitated by a skilled practitioner. The opening class blends seamlessly into the the two hour freeform dance journey facilitated by our guest DJ. At the end of the DJ set we close with a sound bath or group exercise to ground and complete the experience.

➤What to expect:

Ecstatic Dance is a community gathering for people who want to express themselves freely, to connect, and to expand together.

Amazing music helps us keep it all about Dance.

“At Ecstatic Dance, we join together to create a sacred space for dancing. No talking on the dance floor allows us to move out of our heads and into our bodies, hearts, and spirits.
