Da Sunlounge, based in the Midlands UK, began DJ’ing in the deep house scene over 15 years ago. In the early days of his career, he co-hosted the successful Travelling Without Moving night and shared the 1210s on many occasions with the likes of Terry Francis, Clive Henry (Peace Division), Andy Wetherall, Rob Mello, Atjazz, Digs’n’Woosh, Rocky, Elliot Eastwick, Fred Everything, Inland Knights, House of 909, the DIY DJ’s and many more.
In 2000, while playing alongside Clive Henry, he played a dub plate of one of his first productions. Clive heard it and immediately signed it to his label, Low Pressings. Later that year, Da Sunlounge followed it up with a second release on Low Pressings, which was played by Danny Rampling to open his Radio 1 show live from Ibiza.
Shortly after, Da Sunlounge was head hunted by Canadian label 83 West to release on their sub-label Camouflage recordings. In a short space of time, Da Sunlounge found himself releasing music between the likes of H-Foundation, Dj Sneak, Peace Division, Gene Farris, Stacy Kidd, DJ Rasoul etc.
As his career progressed, Da Sunlounge went on to release on numerous labels including,
2020 Vision, OM, Salted Music, Defected, Tango, Amenti Music, Double Down, So Sound, Lost My Dog, Smoke & Mirrors and now Hot Lipps Records, and also remixing great bands such as Crazy P. His music also found its way onto front cover mounts such as Mixmag, and compilation CDs by Fabric, Defected, Ministry of Sound, NRK, Hed Kandi.
In 2001, his own label Myna Music was launched, gaining support from a wide array of DJs around the globe and picking up plays on leading radio stations such as Radio 1. Myna has remained strong over the years and reached it’s 10 year anniversary in 2011 with a back catalogue totaling 45 releases. Following Myna’s success, in 2005 Da Sunlounge launched his second label, Bambino Recordings.
