Bio

Picture this- A dance floor you don’t want to leave. It’s heaving with an aura infectious to those still waiting out the front of the club. The energy is ablaze with electronic music devotees, smiles on faces and drinks in the air, where everyone unites and rejoices when the aptly named Sunshine graces those coveted decks. With an anthemic groove to hook you back in, the Melbourne DJ, producer and curator of Disco Faith Recordings strings together a renowned slew of nu disco, soulful house, jacking house, progressive house, Detroit techno and driving techno to make you want to get up and go out.

Discovering electronic music at the age of 12, the carefree and wide-eyed music aficionado-in-the-making tapped into illegal raves and fell in love with the DJs impact on the crowds before them. Sunshine was captivated. It was at this point she knew she wanted to be a DJ and bring people together in that same way. Afterall, her energetic, warm and ferocious personality was made for the crowds, adorning happiness and warming up the hearts of music lovers everywhere. It was at 16 a one way bus ticket to Melbourne was bought and Sunshine never looked back.

Having taken to the turntables everyday, Sunshine garnered cheeky late night rave slots leading to iconic headline shows and it was evident that Melbourne was perfect for her. With 20 years as a DJ she has truly devoted herself to the house, disco and techno journey, watching Melbourne flock to her dance floor at Revolver Saturdays for the 7am Rise & Shine session every saturday morning for 17 years, where she’s also played with the likes of Gary Beck, seth Troxler and Sven Vath. Sunshine’s residency at Poof Doof since 2012 has also been one for the record books. On the festival circuit, Sunshine has graced us with her radiating dose of hapno (happy house and techno), at Beyond The Valley, Splendour In The Grass, Piknic Electronik and Babylon alongside the likes of international pioneers Gorge, Amelie Lens, Horse Meat Disco and Butch.

In 2016 Sunshine embarked on a different kind of sonic energy. Creating Sunshine and Disco Faith choir, she had a vision to fuse a club-ready DJ set with the uplifting energy of a 12 piece choir, making people rejoice. Selling out shows and welcoming the congregation, she went on to curate Disco Faith Recordings, delivering an energy, disco ambiance and underground hues to have the masses on their feet. Lock in breakfast at Revolver Saturdays or claim a spot at a summer festival with a sneaky dose of dance floor bliss from Sunshine, and your weekend couldn't get any better.
