Tastemaker to tastemakers and musical-icon, Tommie Sunshine is renowned for his reputation of being consistently ahead of the curve while still standing firmly in the zeitgeist. Set apart by his iconoclastic productions, he is regarded as one of today’s most prolific remixers with well over 300 commissioned remixes to date including Katy Perry, Elvis Presley, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Donna Summer, Santana & Fall Out Boy, and his original production career spans collaborations with such diverse artists as Junkie XL, Deorro, Arthur Baker, Felix da Housecat, The Partysquad, Rebecca & Fiona, Midnight Magic, KANDY, Hlafway House, Glowinthedark, Peaches, Kid Sister, Bart B More, Shinichi Osawa, The Disco Fries, James Murphy and many more. Tommie's often spoken about DJ sets have landed him on the Main Stage of Ultra Music Festival three years running, the Hard stage at Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, Australia's Stereosonic, opening for Afrojack at Pier 94 on NYE, playing alongside Skrillex for his Brooklyn «Takeover» and an East Coast run of dates opening for Zedd. Whether as a producer, DJ, artist, dance music historian or social media provocateur Tommie brings a unique enthusiasm to his craft; one that is fueled by his encyclopedic (if not obsessive) knowledge of underground and pop music spanning the last half-century. This brought him to moderate & sit on panels at Amsterdam Dance Event, South by Southwest, Electronic Music Conference in Sydney Australia, New Music Seminar, Ibiza Music Summit, CMJ, Winter Music Conference and EDMbiz. Sunshine has appeared on Katie Couric's day time talk show Katie, interviewed by Peter Jennings for ABC, appeared on BBC radio & TV, A&E, VH1, NPR and on occasion writes on sites such as Huffington Post known to cause an uproar in his firm stance on many issues most won't dare talk about.
Andy Egelhoff is a DJ and photographer based in Brooklyn who performs as SPRKLBB. As the founding resident and programmer for the Ostbahnhof parties in New York and Los Angeles, which brought top talent such as Terrence Dixon, Mike Servito, Volvox, Mystic Bill, Lady Blacktronika, and many others to affordable queer parties. Egelhoff also programmed for High+Tight, a sex-positive fetish party here in New York, which invited artists such as Aurora Halal, Octo Octa, Turtle Bugg, and Physical Therapy. High+Tight was an affordable nightlife space for the younger NY leather and queer community, and platform for emerging queer talent to play with top names in the industry. In New York SPRKLBB frequently plays in the underground scene, at parties such as The Carry Nation, Holy Mountain, Wrecked, The Spectrum, Lost Soul Enterprises, and Sublimate. SPRKLBB is currently resident of artist Seze Devres’ long running Kiss & Tell Party, where techno DJs are invited to play more eclectic multiple genres sets. Kiss & Tell Party is often held at Bossa Nova Civic Club and was currently hosted at Elsewhere, for a night alongside Mike Huckaby. Egelhoff has been photographing my underground dance music and rave culture throughout the United States and Europe for the last decade. His work has been featured in numerous magazines including VICE, Hello Mr, GUP, NY Magazine, and Vogue, and I've mounted exhibitions in NYC, Los Angeles, Paris, Belfast, and the Hermitage Museum in Saint Petersburg, Russia.
