For over a decade, Red Sonya has consistently been playing dance music events, lounges and clubs in Southern California and Mexico. She has held several weekly and monthly residencies, and also produces many of her own events. From 2001 to 2006, she was an active member of the Vinyl Elements Crew, who organized “Reaction” together, which ran for 5 years at the Honey Bee Hive. Since 2007, Red Sonya has been leading Lady Lush, a production company featuring a group of talented DJs and art direction from Andre Couturier Maitret. In 2009, Red Sonya made the move to Los Angeles, California to further her career and start music production of her own. She has DJed at various Los Angeles venues including King King, Complex, and Zanzibar. She has also performed at outdoor festivals Youtopia, Elysium, and Lightning in a Bottle.
Red Sonya's production career is off to a great start as she released an original track titled "Black Friday" on Stripped Recordings. She also has released several "Red Alien Invasion" remixes w/ Alien Tom on Stripped Digital, Hype Musik, and Stripped Off record labels.
Currently, Sonya keeps a busy calendar with special appearances in San Diego, Los Angeles and Baja California. She performs with Alien Tom as Red Alien Invasion and has a residency with him at Eurobar in Ensenada. Sonya and Tom also organize Native Alien events including Contact at the Rancho Agua Caliente. Red Sonya also maintains her long time residency “Fresh Cuts” at Harney Sushi in Old Town in San Diego every 4th Saturday of the month.
DJs that Red Sonya has played with include Bob Sinclair, Jesse Rose, Nic Fanciulli, Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, Filthy Rich, Paolo Mojo, Drumcell, Audio Injection, Kate Simko, Adultnapper, Doc Martin, Wally Callerio, Halo, Jon Tejada, and Q Burns Abstract Message.
Although Deep House was her first vinyl fetish, her music collection quickly grew to include Down Tempo, Trip Hop, Funk, Soul, Tech House, Techno and Drum & Bass. Whatever style of music she’s playing, Red Sonya plays from her heart and soul. Whether she’s rocking a banging house set to a moving dance floor or playing a downbeat set at a restaurant or art gallery, she never disappoints. Red Sonya has made her presence known as an inspiring artist and dedicated supporter of the community. She looks forward to traveling the world and she continues to contribute to the growing electronic dance music scene.
