Sunkiss are David Alvarado and Kenneth Graham. American underground music possesses a spirituality and depth that can only come out of the cultural and social melting pot that is unique to this country. As someone who has spent more than a decade interpreting his life experiences into music, David Alvarado has mastered the art of creating music that truly touches peoples souls, not only in the U.S., but around the world. He uses every sound, every image that comes in to his life as his inspiration to make music that evokes the spirit of an underground culture of music that has existed for the last century. While growing up in Los Angeles David Alvarado forged an appreciation for music that was quickly being changed by technology. His early experimentation lead him to produce the "Las Americas Project", a single that captured the attention of Plus 8 records Richie Hawtin and John Acquaviva, who at the time were in the process of developing a new house imprint by the name of Definitive Records. Through this relationship David was introduced to other up in coming artist's and labels such as the Toronto based Stickman Records and Philadelphia DJ Josh Wink.
His experience and exposure to the growing house music community led him to begin his own imprint, Bomb Records, which further contributed to helping David expand his audience and develop his signature sound as an artist. Bomb Records not only was the vehicle by which David increased his global audience, but also featured then up and coming artists Kenneth Graham, Eddie Amador, and Derrick Carter. The foresight that David exhibited with his own production and the selections for his label quickly sparked international interest and created a tour schedule that grew increasingly demanding. Despite his hectic travels David has remained focused in the studio and completed an impressive body of work for his own label, and for highly respected labels including Ovum, Ultra, Strictly Rhythm, Yoshi Toshi, Plastic City and Peace Frog.
There are producers who change their sound according to what's in and out of fashion, and there are those who stick to their own sound regardless of the musical climate. Kenneth Graham belongs to the latter category. Since his '94 debut (as KG Beat), Kenneth has been refining a soulful techno-house hybrid sound that defies categorization -- save for the fact it is most certainly underground. Not one to hog the decks, Kenneth Graham is also keen to share his studio skills with others. He produces as Seven, Midnight Sessions, Sunkiss, and Sunchildren Project, Bomb Records, Aqua Boogie, and Peacefrog, and as GLF with Steve Loria and Terry Francis.
