Liquid Sun is a project which explores the world of music, mostly through Goa & Psychedelic Trance, but also experiments with Downtempo & Freestyle tunes. Major influences are Psychedelic & Goa Trance of the '90s and 00's, but also Ambient & Downtempo, Acid & Techno, Ethnic & World, 60's Psychedelic Rock, 70's Progressive; Space & Hard Rock, Jazz-Rock, Fusion & Acid Jazz.
My real name is Kyriakos Christoforou, also known as DJ Sunborn. I was born in Athens, Greece on the 17 of December 1965. Entered in the world of music at the age of 14, when I bought my first guitar. In 1982 made my first band playing rock music and in the next 7 years i join several other local bands.
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. 3 years later, while spending my time as a traveler DJ mainly to India, Thailand, Switzerland and Greece, i felt that the time was right to start making music again, but this time in the electronic genre. So, “Liquid Sun” project was born in March 1996 and it is constantly active ever since.
From 1996 to 1999, i was busy traveling and DJing for months every year and could not fully focus on producing music. My equipment was also "poor": a cheap 8-track sequencer and a Yamaha DX-11 synth, later complemented by a Nord Lead synth and a Yamaha drum module. However, my best inspirations and musical ideas comes from that period!
From 1999 onward, with updated equipment and by using a computer for the first time, i went on to develop my musical project more seriously. 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). Between 2004 and 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 joined Neurotrance Records for a while, where i released my track "Hollow Man" (May 2011). The next year, i self-released on Nimbit Music the Mp3 album “Aurora”, which compiles various tracks produced from 2003 until 2010.
Between February 2012 and May 2015, i was co-manager and art director of Space Alchemy Lab, together with Oberon (Founder). On this label i released the EP "Middle Earth" (March 2012) and the mini-album "Surrealistic Collage" (December 2014).
By the beginning of 2020 i joined the Unreleased Goa Records label where my new work, “Interdimensional Phenomena” will be released on March.
I consider my music as warm, mysterious, exploratory and psychedelic and i usually do not like to follow the typical formalities of each era, but rather, to always follow my own way!
