2013 was a very good year for Houston, TX based DJ Sun (whose given name is Andre Sam-Sin). In January, he released One Hundred, which was considered to be one of the best local albums of the year by most local critics. One Hundred is a refining compilation of his 20-year career as one of Houston’s top sound makers and turntablists. Along with Mike Stinson’s Hell and Half of Georgia, it was the definitive Houston record of 2013.
2014 may be even better for Houston’s top DJ. Sam-Sin now has an entire nightclub to do with what he sees fit. DJ Sun has had a longstanding association with The Flat at 1701 Commonwealth, Houston, TX and in November investors in the chic Montrose lounge asked Sam-Sin to become the managing partner of the establishment.
When The Flat opened in 2005, Sun’s residency Rocksteady Mondays, which he imported from Cafe Brazil, became his claim to fame. Although a Saturday-night show he co-hosts on KPFT, with Soular Grooves, should not be discounted, the Rocksteady platform helped him become a one-man show in Houston’s music community.
Of The Flat, Sun says, “It’s an institution in the Montrose community. I felt that after releasing One Hundred, that I needed a ‘home’ in the same [way] that Thievery Corporation has Eighteenth Street Lounge in DC.”
In fact, Sam-Sin has a longstanding relationship with the Eighteenth Street Lounge, where he has been a guest DJ and has used Rocksteady. Rocksteady was an “instant hit” and has become a home base for dozens of visiting DJs and musicians such as Austin’s Chorizo Funk and Aloe Blacc, Farid, De La Soul’s Maseo, Nickodemus, DJ Platurn, DJ Center and many others.
