Jeff van Hoek, better known by his stage name Jeff Solo, moved to the city of Rotterdam at a young age, enabling him to frequent popular events such as Now&Wow, Off_Corso, Las Palmas. This vibrant metropolis also served as a good learning school to experience the ever changing musical developments, as well as deepen his interest in the art of DJ’ing. By 2009, he got his first break and hasn’t looked back ever since.
Jeff is part of a new generation of DJ’s that refuse to be restricted by preconceived notions or outside expectations. Never afraid to innovate behind the decks, Jeff excels at surprising the dancefloor with an extensive selection of tunes from various genres (House, Disco, Pop, Rock, Wave, Hip-Hop), seamlessly blending them together with a sharp ear and vision.
Still based in the lively harbour city, Jeff remains active as one of the main initiators in Rotterdam’s energetic nightlife scene, co-founding new interesting and exciting concepts like No Rio, Don, Non Night Perron and Bowery Rotterdam, building from the ground up.
In addition to his commitment manning the decks in the clubs, Jeff also operates behind the scenes as a consultant and coordinator for fashion shows, hair shows and such, as well as a slew of corporate events domestic and overseas: Bacardi, Procter & Gamble, G-Star, Jameson, Amsterdam Fashion Week, Bread and Butter Berlin, Converse, Diesel, Jagermeister, Public_, the list goes on. In 2012 Jeff will focus on the realm of production and expansion of his music duties. Stay tuned!
