On this night, we’re very proud to present a special live set of deepstep, dub and electronic music by San Francisco legend SUNSHINE JONES.
Sunshine spent the 1990′s touring the united states in a van as one half of the legendary house outfit, Dubtribe Sound System, and as creative director of Imperial DUB Recordings. Sunshine’s last appearance at Dub Mission was in 1999, when Dubtribe performed a special live dub set, exclusively for Dub Mission’s third anniversary. That event was followed by Imperial Dub Mission, a party that brought the two crews together for one unforgettable night. The turn of the century saw the end of his long term partnerships with IDR, and his musical partner, Moonbeam. After working with BMG/Jive, and Defected Records, Sunshine took a long break. He returned to music in 2006, writing seven tracks in seven days. The album was released on King Street that same year. In early 2007, frustrated with the limitations of CD turntables, and the confused pile of hand scrawled CD’s all over his house, Sunshine made the move to mixing with a laptop. Using an Allen and Heath XONE:92 DJ Mixer with a mic and some effects, and a MacBook Pro running Traktor DJ Studio Pro, Sunshine found he was excited about mixing records again. And it shows. No stale, up tempo computer mixes here. Sunshine has been challenging what dance music even is, often never raising the tempo above 118 bpm, he uses musical force, live vocals, live percussion, loops, and effects rather than simply beating the crowd to death with something fast or hard. Sunshine has traveled and performed all over the world. Since 2007 he has been a monthly resident at Love in New York City, and a quarterly resident at Club Five in Washington DC. He also performs a live/DJ Set every Sunday on 90hz.org called Sunday Soul, and continues to produce house music for King Street Sounds, Nite Grooves, from the Treehouse Recording Studio, and for his label, Treehouse Muzique.
