Darryl G. Wright over at popmatters.com showing some love for One Hundred:
Fat organic breaks seemingly borrowed from the back rooms of the finest vinyl archives are plentiful from track to track, and DJ Sun doesn’t mind exploring them from phrase to phrase… a candidate for soundtrack of the summer.
Great article by Glenn H Roth over at jambands.com showing some love for Soular Grooves founder DJ Sun:
DJ Sun mixes music and culture like a gourmet chef. He sprinkles all parts of his heritage – Dutch, Caribbean, Indo-Chinese and African – onto his turntables to the delight of his audiences.
“I don’t want to be driven by what’s the popular curve today,” said DJ Sun, whose real name is Andre Sam-Sin. “I just want to make sure it all makes sense.”
late last year i approached friend, colleague, and ninjatune recording artist yppah to do a remix of the first single off “one hundred:” “heart seed feat leah alvarez”…
he presented a banger! definitely knocked it out of the park…he bumped up the tempo a bit and added his own signature feel, guitar work, percussive work, bass…really nice!
so nice that okayplayer decided to give it an exclusive world premiere on their site…
since the release of one hundred, things have been amazing, in terms of reviews and feedback…one honor i received, was to do a guest mix for brooklyn radio… the last few years i’ve made countless travels to the bk and even collaborated with a crew from the kensington area in brooklyn, so of course i obliged!…check it out here via mixcloud…and share!… often…
a conversation with dj melodic and fat tony…i sat down with fat tony and dj melodic to discuss musical influences from now and then…check it out on the next page:
this past weekend we reached “one hundred”… the “one hundred days to one hundred” is a wrap, but the momentum of the campaign has me contemplating continuing the video episodes…we recently shot with fat tony and dj melodic and hope to air that soon…
jason woods aka flash gordon parks sat in my living room several months ago…”you should do ‘one hundred days to one hundred’…”… i enthusiastically said “yes,” but wasn’t too sure i could pull it off- well here it is: 10 video episodes and countless posts later (i missed a day early on when i didn’t have wifi- i skipped a few during the holidays- and while prepping for the release date performance etc, i ran a “revisiting” of some of the video episodes)…#1 of “one hundred days to one hundred”!!
one can’t go down a list of names because there is always someone who’s gonna get left out…having said that beyond saying that i thank everyone in h-town for their great support and overwhelming love there are a few mentionables here:
first off: mom!
gotta thank mom first and foremost!
i cruise along in my career and things are good…and fitting of this next person’s personality, i’d like to use an over-used sports analogy/cliche- (sorry! but today i’m entitled- its my birthday, after all…): when there is that debate about mvp’s, you always here the cliche- “but does he make his team-mates better, by just being on the field/court”…that’s phil marshall, my manager. his sense of integrity, hard work, vision, relentless principles make him that “team-player”: he makes everyone better…like i said i was “cruising” along…phil elevated that to a higher level by asking the tough questions, demanding a higher standard…nuff said!
in episode 5 we took some sound bytes from rapper jawwaad, who grew up in houston and recently moved back from nyc to re-establish himself in our community, and supa neil, a transplant from trinidad & tobago who has done radio shows on kpft 90.1 and ktsu 90.9, and is also a music producer, about houston as a “hidden treasure”… btw, in case you haven’t noticed: the intros to these videos are of street signs on the 100 blocks of these respective streets in the montrose/westheimer area with “marksonthekeys” from “one hundred” playing in the background…”one hundred” release party tomorrow: jan 19th at cha, 810 waugh drive- in-store performance at cactus records, 2110 portsmouth…
with the help of urban circus video production we checked out different cultural aspects of houston which have been influential…the b boys in houston have been at many a dj sun event, lending their skils and just contributed their vibe by setting up impromptu dance circles; video episode 6 represents a quick look into the houston b boy culture
as we get closer to the release date of “one hundred,” we revisit some of the video episode…in this one we do a field trip to the rothko chapel and the menil park…
this was one of my favorite video episodes. you can also check all of the episodes at urban circus…
immensely talented, super hard-working and ambitious (see the pic below of a text he sent to me today…a sunday!)…trevor came to me to help me accomplish the idea that flash gordon parks had presented to me: “do a countdown of one hundred days to one hundred”…when flash mentioned it, i thought it was cool…as we started planning it, i thought it was crazy- super over ambitious, perhaps!!..when i talked to trevor, i thought “this is possible, after all,” and after trevor delivered the first episode i said: “wow!…this is getting done!”
i have so many anecdotes- like how we prepared to clandestinely get to the 60th floor of the chase tower, because we imagined that they weren’t going to allow us up there with a camera (for the material shot in vid episode 10, below)…but will only dole those out in personal convos…this space i want to reserve to give thanks to one of the main forces behind “one hundred days to one hundred”…
he stays behind the camera where he feels most comfortable and produces great magic- a wonderful eye, great work ethic, intelligent, with editing skills to boot…after a few corrections for the first episode, he immediately grasped what we wanted and delivered each and every time!…trevor represents the young talent emerging out of houston and feels a complete and thorough identity with houston…and that’s a great thing!
