Through the genres of Chicago, Detroit and N York house, with lacings of disco and all things rhythm, Sunshine Pedro is a connector, educator and traveller whose soulful music is chasing the sun as he brings love and celebration to those in the clubs and festivals before them.
Let’s keep it short - Owner & resident of one of the most accredited summer clubs of Greece, with a history of 20 years, Cariocas House on the Beach. Founder of Odyssia Festival, the largest international festival dedicated to electronic dance music ever held in Greece. As solo DJ, he's already crossed many frontiers of the electronic scene. From regular gigs throughout Europe playing alongside names such as Frankie Knuckles, Ron Trent and David Morales, Joe Claussell to his residency at his infamous Cariocas Beach Bar in Greece, summer is just the beginning. In winter, however, his music can be found wandering between burning hot African Desert raves, through to the underground clubs of Thailand, and Cape town.
Creating interesting dance concepts such as Odyssia Festival, House on the Beach and Walk The Night has kept him busy. While Odyssia Festival once a year transforms the lazy coastal area of Schinos Bay in Greece into an elaborate playground for some of the world's most revered house music artists. House on the Beach, his residency for the last 20 years, see's Pedro bringing every Summer Sunday afternoon quality House music in Greece, and keeping alive the spirit of his mentors through his dance floor. On top of this, Walk The Night was yet another extension of his musical teachings and featured in many a metropolis to flaunt the original beats of electronic America, proving that 30 years later, the sound of Detroit and Chicago will never find sleep.
Last but not least, he is a member and co-founder of The Lovesick - The first Greeks ever to participate at a Burn festival with a music live 14hour marathon performance of their band “The Lovesick”. The project is consisted of pure analogue sounds and instruments played live and mixed with vinyl selections, mix-mastered out with ad-hoc digital effects. A cinematic atmosphere is created by the two story tellers and shared with the audience. Interaction instantly begins, aiming to “as one”, for all participating to the mystagogy.
Pedro brought Mancuso to the Lovesick and Vassilis brought Ricardo Da Force. Those are the Lovesick mentors. Driven by the feel of long durational marathon sets, the artists adjust to the environment and are inspired from the energy streams present in house, to create a unique set, each time they perform live. Lovesick is not just about music. It’s a way of living. We travel, love, live, cook, dream, play the Lovesick way and share the vibe with our friends and family, around the world. www.lovesick.gr And whether it floats through psychedelic sunsets, between urban club strobes or over the earth with dusk, the path is clear as he connect strangers, lovers and best friends through its organic and rhythmic sound.
