When it comes to passion, energy and living a life in tune with feelings you might meet Kara, a person with some of the most special combinations of interests, you can meet in the music world. She was born on the lucky day ;-) 7.7.77 in Germany and grew up in the countryside. Two main interests have always influenced her life, which is music and wildlife, especially birds. Kara used to sneak to discos at night, when she was 14 to join gogo dance contests and later went head banging at rock concerts with her friends. When she was 17, she met a guitar player of a punk rock band and she became the singer of that rock band “Different sights” for a while. They played on several small parties; Kara did songwriting, creating most melodies and later on arrangement of their tracks as well. After Kara finished school, she did a graduation as a sports teacher and moved away from home to live in the city and to work as a gogo dancer. She won the title “disco queen of NRW” and went to Spain to compete in the finals.
Kara was a dancer for more than 8 years, but as musical tastes started shifting more to hip-hop and RmB she decided to become a dj, to keep the trance alive in the clubs. After a while she was able to get all equipment to teach herself the dj skills, after a while she could start playing sets in the clubs where she worked as a dancer, and finally she came in touch with her first dj agency. There’s been some agencies during the years, with the last agency she travelled more around the globe to perform. It took a while to get internationally recognized, but until now she worked in 20 countries, performing in : Belgium, Brazil, China, Colombia, Czech, Ecuador, Germany, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mallorca, Mexico, Netherlands, Oman, Poland, Russia, Sardinia, Spain, Turkey, and Ukraine. Kara has played alongside international stars like Rank 1, Tiesto, Marcel Woods, Fred Baker, Johan Gielen, Ron van den Beuken, 4 Strings, Shaun Baker, Caba Kroll, Future Breeze, Essential DJ Team, Doug Laurent, Nico Parisi, and DJ Luna, Ronny K, Matty Groves, Manuel le Saux. Several radio stations played her mix sets like: sunshine-life.de, etn.fm; jenny.fm, protozyk.com, tranceradio.ch, globalbeats.com, hightechradio.nl, terpsychore-musica.com, AuraSF.com, sky-one-radio.com, ….
Kara has won several DJ mix contests such as “the best live mix CD” selected from DTF music crew; and she took 3rd place in the DJ contest at one of the hippest clubs in Belgium: the Atmoz. Kara’s goal is to inspire people with melodical NRG trance and also give them the message to be careful with nature. She plays uplifting trance, eurodance and electro house. She knows how to animate people, a skill developed through her time as dancer, so she is very active with the crowd, talks and sings through microphone and jumps and claps her hands to get the people crazy of music :). Her style has been influenced by her longtime friends Rank 1 and Ronny K, Fila and many others. Now she is quite well known all around the world but most popular in Mexico where she has been invited for several tours. While she loves to work in discothèques at night, she prefers to spend her daytime in bird parks, zoos, or hiking through the rain forest.
Lately she also developed the more “green type” and is involved in several actions to save the rain forest and to fight the global warming and she practices what she preaches! In late 2007 Kara finally finished her first production, a collaboration with Matthew K, which is remixed by “Vengeance” and recently “Thr3shold”. Her second track “into the sun” is made in summer 2008 and remixed by one of her favorite producers “Airbase”, other remixes came from Waterspark and Svenson. “Into the sun “was her first release, that was released 23rd of august 2010, 3 month later her official video for the airbase mix was released (Official Canary island Video). For this special video she went to Lanzarote to record the scenes she wanted, this video was cutted under her script, but the following videos from “Energy of life” on were all made by herself. “Energy of life” was released 22.2.11. Her next release is just out on 20. 5. 2013 called “Novaline & Kara Sun- Get the groove” a collaboration from 2011 with the young Swedish producer Novaline on Silent shore Recordings.
Her next Solo release “Kara sun – I like it” will be released with Digitized recordings in July 2013, this track includes brilliant Remixes of her Brazilian friend “Sunset” and a “Ferrin & Morris” remix. The videos for these tracks are already to see on youtube. Some weeks ago she went to Madeira to make the video clips for her new releases. Last track she produced is ‘Every single moment’ which she worked out with Alpha dimension and Trance arts. So if you like energetic music with an energetic performer for your event: Kara Sun is looking forward to meet you and rock your party! ;-)
