San Francisco favorite Brian Salazar shares with us how he chooses his tracks and also his favorites for January 2011. “I choose my tracks from a spectator point of view, and not just as a dancer, DJ, or a musician. I want anyone from any musical background to walk into my set and be instantly submerged”. Dedicated to music as a whole from jazz, disco, soul, R&B, funk, reggae, old school, classical, and salsa, Brian Salazar has fine-tuned his ear to introduce a sound that is refreshing, intellectual, and catchy. Additionally, the background of being a dancer has elevated his stage presence and solidified his reputation as a crowd pleaser. “A dancer-turned-dj knows what to play to make people dance.”

Soul Luciani brings to house music a passion that is both deeply infused in the music, and at the same time, transcends it. He recognizes that a good sound is the foundation of a good party, and that a carefully crafted mix that elicits and magnifies the dancers’ emotions in a carefully choreographed sequence will build that party to a crescendo, creating an unforgettable experience that people will want to return to again and again. At the same time, Soul sees house music as a crucial thread in the tapestry of life. It is, to him, a way of life – a philosophy that uplifts, breaks barriers, draws strength from diversity and teaches its listeners that we are all drawn together by the common rhythms of life.
Soul currently settled in Oakland, California, a city rich in diversity that in many respects mirrors Soul’s own life experience. His current venture, This Must Be The Place, draws upon both his global travels and his inner journey to bring to The Bay a musical and cultural experience unlike any seen here before.
This Must Be The Place
was created with the constitution to continue a long tradition of preserving and forwarding the underground dance music culture no matter how much resistance is met along the way.
