San Francisco's Sunshine Jones is something of a 21st-century house music troubadour. Originally half of '90s pioneering live electronica duo Dubtribe Sound System (which disbanded in 2005), Jones now produces and performs under his own name, using his DJ/MC persona as a forum for transgressive yet inspirational political and spiritual discourse. Combining live vocals and spoken word, live percussion, loops, and plenty of dreamy effects, he weaves a rich tapestry of melodic and techy deep house that gets right in your soul. Jones has released his solo productions on labels like King Street Sounds and Treehouse Muzique, in addition to hosting and spinning for Sunday Soul every week on 90hz.org.
Join him for an intimate and soulful session this Friday night at Blue (formerly Feelgood's) along with Retox resident DJs Inbal and Baby Sean, who will celebrate his birthday that night.
Sunshine Jones at Blue. Friday, Saturday 4, 10 p.m. - 5 a.m. 222 Espanola Way, Miami Beach. $5 before midnight, $10 after.
