Liquid Sun is a project by DJ Sunborn, which explores the world of music, mostly through Psychedelic Trance, but experiments also with Chill Out, Freestyle & Ethnic tunes. My influences are Goa Trance, Psychedelic Trance, Ambient, Ethnic, Psychedelic 60’s, Progressive 70’s and Jazz-Rock.
My real name is Kyriakos Christoforou. I was born in Athens, Greece on the 17 of December 1965. Entered in the world of music in 1979, when I bought my first guitar. In 1982 made my first group playing rock music and in the next seven years I join several local bands without any signified success.
After my “rock” days, i took a 4 year break and started traveling around the world. Arriving in Goa for the first time on February 1993, I was influenced by the new psychedelic revolution. Few years later, while i was spending my time as a traveler DJ mainly to India, Thailand and Greece, i felt that the time was right to start making music again, but this time in the electronic era. So Liquid Sun project was born at 1996!
The first 3 years was difficult, as i continued traveling and DJing for months every year, so i couldn’t fully focused on making music and also, i had no serious equipment at that time, only a cheap 8-track sequencer and a Yamaha DX-11 synth. Later, a Nord Lead synth and an obscure drum machine arrived. However, my best inspirations and musical ideas comes from that period!
In 1999 bought a computer and some more equipment and started to work more seriously on my music, although I spend a lot of time in learning anything about computers.
In 2003 played my music at the after party of Samothraki Dance Festival and a few months later my first track, “The Other Side of Morning” was released by Pagoda Records (January 2004).
From April 2004 to December 2007, I was a member of Harmonia Records, then for few years i focused on other things, while still making music for my own joy.
Around 2011 I become a member of Neurotrance Records, which released my track “Hollow Man” (May 2011). At the same time i released the mp3 album “Aurora” on Nimbit Music (January 2012) with various tracks i made during the period 2004-2010.
Between February 2012 and May 2015, i was founder, manager and art director of Space Alchemy Lab, together with Oberon. There i made 2 releases, the “Middle Earth” (March 2012) and the “Surrealistic Collage” (December 2014).
I consider my music as warm, mysterious and psychedelic!
