Rocky began his venture with music when he was only 12 years old.
At a very young age, he skipped playing on the streets with other kids and moved further to developing a skill that is not common to ordinary people.
He started with a mobile group and his career went on. Since then, he has always been an asset to the clubs he played and resided at. Known for his Electro, Techno, Trance, Breakbeat and Progressive House tunes, Rocky does not only play and mix the music, but he also innovates different kinds of mixing styles.
He is currently very busy with two of the countries popular bar and club destinations, Temple Bar and Club Industry. He is also connected with local groups such as Mixology DJs and Pitchworks Inc.
Aside from all that, he also flies to different islands in the country doing countless gigs for big events.
In early 2006, he was also chosen to close for DJ Tiesto when he played in Manila.
However, being busy and in-demand does not mean he’s rubbish. In fact, Rocky is a very down “to” earth DJ. He doesn’t care about fame and glory, which is a common case in the DJ industry politics. To him, its all about professionalism and of course, passion in music.
When not DJing, Rocky Solarta plays a big role in contributing for the DJ industry. He is part of a booking agency that brings the best international DJs and artists in the country, Funboy Event’s (Responsible for bringing Tiesto, Olav Basoski, Ian Carey & Benny Benassi in the phil’s). He was chosen also to open for “The House Master’s” Olav Basoski and Ian 45 Carey Last Aug 2006.
Rockys influences in music are the likes of Aquasky, Tiesto, Olav Basoski, Ian Carey, Basement Jaxx, Carl Cox, David Morales, Eric Morillo, Deep Dish, Deep Swing, Ferry Corsten, Full Intention, Groove Armada, Robbie Rivera, Sandy Rivera, Wally Lopez, Steve Lawler, Steve Angelo, Antoine Clamaran, Seb Fontain, and Miguel Migs just to name. Surely, you will never miss to hear these artists in Rocky’s playlist.
But that’s not all. He is very versatile too when it comes to music genre. At times, you can catch him play and mix 80s, 90s, New Wave, and Ambient music. Name it, hell mix it. A genuine person with passion that truly deserves the respect of a real DJ.
