About: DJ SUN's new release is the first single off a forthcoming album, due in Spring 2011, entitled “One Hundred”. The new single features two songs that reflect back to an era of production that emphasized the analogue elements which DJ SUN has used to stamp his signature in production. A midtempo head-nodder, “Fun” keeps a steady beat while employing a 70's atmospheric feel to the melody structure. The flipside “Bus”, at the same tempo, employs some 70's horns while the driving beat is enhanced by familiar guitar riffs. About DJ SUN: Recording Artist, DJ and radio show host, DJ SUN recently released his second EP Para. With his first, Monday Drive, listeners quickly learned they could trust him to take them on an international exploration of old-school soul, jazz, reggae and even disco. DJ SUN has been a tastemaker in the Southwest region of the US for the last 15 years, with a strong reach through his acclaimed radio show, Soular Grooves (Pacifica Radio, KPFT 90.1). A successful DJ and radio career has propelled DJ SUN into the world of music production, steadily building a catalogue of quality tracks which incorporate old-school production techniques and analogue sounds that characterize his signature. His network of artists that have contributed remixes and done work with DJ SUN have included J Boogie (OM Records), DJ Presto (Concrete Grooves), DJ Sabo, and others. DJ SUN holds down a regular bi-monthly residency at Eighteenth Street Lounge in DC and four weekly residencies in Houston. This new single by DJ SUN is a lead-in to the first full-length for DJ SUN due in Spring 2011. ONE HUNDRED will be released right in time for SXSW. A marketing campaign is being put in place to promo the album and it includes this single and will possibly include 1 more, prior to the release of the album.
