The President & COO of one of the largest investment groups in the world is also an EDM DJ on the side. 55-year-old President/COO of Goldman Sachs, David M. Solomon,is better known as DJ D-Sol. Our friends at The New York Times even tracked down his efforts as DJ D-Sol:

Here's a snippet of how he got into the DJ game:

Mr. Solomon’s hobby has become a more or less monthly gig, with recent stops in New York, Miami and the Bahamas, all noted on the Instagram page. (Among the Manhattan venues where he has spun, according to the page, are Beautique in East Midtown and The Whales on Clinton Street.)

“David’s always believed that having a wide range of outside interests leads to a balanced life and makes for a better career,” said Jake Siewert, a Goldman spokesman. “He’s preached that regularly to younger employees in the firm and tries to lead by example.”

Mr. Solomon led a study about improving the quality of life for Goldman’s junior bankers that resulted in new curbs on the hours they could work on weekends.

Shortly after The New York Times called, the Instagram page was made private.

But a roughly 30-second clip shot during the performance on July 4 depicts Mr. Solomon, wearing a baseball cap with headphones over it and a T-shirt bearing the name of Casamigos Tequila, adjusting the music as women in bikinis and shirtless men wearing board shorts dance on a deck below. Speakers blast music from the roof of the club, which was holding its weekly pig roast that day.

Rachel Taylor of Rock Group 'He Is We' Found Not Guilty of Sexual Assault

Rachel Taylor, lead vocalist of indie pop act He Is We, has officially received a verdict of not guilty, exonerating her of the Sexual Assault allegation from 2017. The verdict followed a one-day jury trial held on June 4, 2019 in Jamestown, North Dakota. The verdict, which certified Taylor’s innocence of the criminal charge of Sexual assault, was met with a feeling of gratefulness and vindication by Taylor who had maintained her innocence since the charge was levied against her in September of 2017.

The details of the case revealed that the accuser, who was a newly hired musician for a He Is We tour in 2017, claimed Taylor had touched the side of her torso and her buttocks over a blanket while they shared a bed and a room with two other touring band members. The other two occupants of the motel room reported not seeing any criminal activity and the trial testimony by the accuser was contradicted numerous times by one of the touring band members who testified under oath during the tri…
