Eli Goldstein’s career spans over 20 years on the decks and beyond. Best known as half of efunk purveyors Soul Clap, he wears many hats in the music universe. Goldstein runs Soul Clap Records, one of Mixmag’s 10 most influential disco labels of the last decade. He hosts a monthly radio show on New York City’s The Lot Radio. He’s one of the founders of Black Flamingo, a plant based taqueria and discotheque in Brooklyn. And he spins eclectic, vinyl oriented sets throughout New York and anywhere else he can get to by train or EV. Through it all, Goldstein’s mission has been to share music that feels like the past, but sounds like the future. Music that makes you move your body and feel something in your soul. But music is not always enough, and he strives to make a positive impact on the world around him by sprouting joy with DJs for Climate Action and utilizing his M.S. in Climate Science and Policy to develop an industry-wide climate pledge, while looking beyond climate to promote social justice and fight mass incarceration with Give a Beat.
