Sunshine Jones has been an active member of his ever expanding community since 1988. A voice in electronic music, Sunshine is a founding member of Dubtribe Sound System and has travelled the world for more than three decades performing live, improvisational electronic music anywhere and everywhere there is love, and art, and people willing to gather and dance, or lay back and listen.
A central piece of Sunshine’s philosophy has always been DIY. Do it yourself. Assaulting ideas like “someday” and “commodity fetishim” through the heart of a poet, and the mind of a situationst his radically inclusive music, words, and their recording, documenting, and presentation are always aimed at asking us to reflect upon ourselves, and to stand up, and get to work.
Love is the message. Nothing else is real. Sunshine does more than most, and is always working, building, recording, designing, producing, and performing. He travels the world playing live improvisational electronic music without stopping. His ever growing body of work include 14 studio albums, more than 125 singles, thousands of live performances, poster art, web design, technical manuals, DIY electronics classes, an 11 year running digital transmission from wherever he is in the world called Sunday Soul, interviews, classes, the odd DJ set for fun, and a travelling seminar called the PLAY LIVE!
Seminar where Sunshine creates community in the destination city, gather all walks of live to rally around the idea that electronic music is a viable, vital, and valid art form which can (and should) be free of the shackles of the mobile phone, and the computer. Free of the prerequisite notion that we need a thousand dollar appliance to produce music, people are inspired, and as empowered by his seminars as they are from his spoken word, written word, photography, graphic design, recordings, or live performances.
