For the past two decades, DJ Sun has contributed to the live soundtrack of Houston, Texas with an aural palette of funk, soul, jazz, disco, early hip-hop and even more modern genres such as trip hop. It is his ability to seamlessly blend those elements and find ways to shape the music to the contours of the many rooms in which he spins records that has made him a Houston standard, a classic. Indeed, DJ Sun, is sometimes so ubiquitous in Houston nightlife that he appears to be everywhere at once (hence the name?).
Still, that’s not all for which he is known. What time he doesn’t spend behind the turntables — either in a live setting or on his long running Pacifica radio show Soular Grooves — he has been spending in the studio.
His most recent album, One Hundred, is the culmination of years of work for DJ Sun. With the release of his Monday Drive EP in 2007, he put himself on the map as a producer, following that up with another EP and a couple of singles. True to the buildup to One Hundred, four songs from those releases are included, but with fifteen new tracks to complete the gumbo.
