DJ Sun

Profile:
He was born January 19, in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. He grew up there and in Suriname before settling in Houston, Texas (USA) in his teens.

DJ Sun started a radio show in 1995, Soular Grooves on KPFT 90.1 FM, Pacifica Network. The music played on Soular Grooves has the aesthetics of soul and jazz, irrespective of bpm or tempo. Soular Grooves was initially known as an acid jazz show. DJ Sun started his DJ career in 1993 and has maintained a career during which he has earned Houston Press DJ of The Year awards seven times between 1999 and 2009 (the last being in 2009).

DJ Sun’s style has been described by music writers like Shea Sherrano of The Houston Press weekly[8] as varied with a distinct signature for loungey, groove-oriented eclectic music shaped by his exposure to music while living abroad.

In 2007, DJ Sun became a music producer with the release of Monday Drive (Alternate Take Records), an EP reflective of his varied background, blending styles and nostalgic aesthetics into a down to midtempo paced EP. DJ Sun released Para, a 12” EP which included remixes from DJ Sabo (Sol Selectas), J Boogie (OM) and Genre Jazz (Presto and Mhax Montes), released in November 2008.

On January 15, 2013, DJ Sun released "One Hundred", a 19-track album featuring guests Tim Ruiz (La Mafia), Leah Alvarez, Jessica Zweback, Mark Sound, Meghan Hendley, and Martin Perna.

On October 10, 2013, DJ Sun was awarded the Best CD by a Local Musician in the annual Best Of Houston edition of The Houston Press
