Sunshine has been a fixture of the Melbourne scene for almost 12 years. Earning her stripes in a myriad of different spaces around town, she’s created a sound that is truly her own. What gives her the edge is sheer versatility – you’re just as likely to hear bleeding-edge techno alongside house and disco all in the space of one beer. Hapno is the sound and it sure ain’t coming from anyone else. As a teenager growing up in Perth, Sunshine first tapped into the illegal rave scene to nurture a growing interest in dance music. Several years on the dancefloor led to her first vinyl purchase, exploring the worlds of hip hop, jazz, funk, soul, disco, house and techno. By the time she moved to Melbourne in 1998, she’d amassed her first crate and a dream to DJ. Within a year she’d garnered her first gig, at a small party in Port Melbourne. Naturally, she started playing bars around town, eventually working her way up to sets in the side rooms of the bigger parties such as 33 & 1/3.
By 2003, Sunshine had turned enough heads to be offered Saturday mornings at Revolver, a reasonably prestigious set in the grand scheme of things. She grabbed the chance with both hands and made it her own. Hell, any morning set at Revolver is bound to be rather monumental, but to this day she’s brought a sense of humour to her work, proving she was one of the punters rather than a superstar on raised platform. Not many DJs would have the sheer nerve to stop while the club is rammed, stand on the turntables and start belting out a rendition of The Gossip (as she did the morning after Daft Punk’s Melbourne show).
With gigs as large as the Big Day Out under her belt, the future seems bright for this talented spinner.More info + Bookings - firstname.lastname@example.org
