David Solomon — who will take over the reigns as Goldman

‘ chief executive in October — can now also add
Billboard Top 100 artist to his resume.

After
releasing his first single, a remix of Fleetwood Mac’s 1977 hit
“Don’t Stop,” in June
, the track made its way to
number 38 on the Billboard dance charts this week
, fueled by
appearances on at least three Spotify mixes including “Happy
Summer Beats
” and “Fresh
Electronic
.”

D-Sol, as he goes by when he’s not helping run the investment
bank and its $918 billion in assets,
has been at the hobby for a while
 and is often spotted
at clubs around the Manhattan, Brooklyn, and in the Hamptons.

Solomon reportedly used his DJ skills as a way to win over
Spotify’s initial public offering earlier this spring.

“Five, seven years ago, I started really kind of taking note of
club and EDM music and what was happening with all the electronic
music,” Solomon said on a
Goldman podcast recently
.

“I said, ‘You know, I like some of this music,’ and started
playing around with it, started reading about these DJs that
really had these incredible platforms.”

“Don’t Stop” by Fleetwood Mac peaked at number three on the
Billboard top 100 chart when it first graced radio waves 41 years
ago. We’ll see just how high D-Sol’s remix can make it.

We reached out to Goldman Sachs to see if Solomon will be DJing
any corporate events soon. They have not yet responded.
