West Palm Beach electro-ambient-dance purveyors Sumsun is picking up traction for its dream-house sounds. New Times learned recently that the two-piece -- consisting of Judson Rogers and touring partner Edwin Jantunen -- will join bombastic unit Sleigh Bells and atmospheric act Neon Indian for a stint on their North American tour. The twosome flies out to San Francisco this week and hooks up with the other two acts for a slew of shows through June 7 in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
No sleep for the weary, as Sumsun just returned from a Southeast tour with Gainesville band Oh Fortuna and is planning another with said experimental pop group in August.
Additionally, Sumsun head knob-tweaker Rogers is currently putting the final touches on a remix for Diplo's Mad Decent label act Dawn Golden & Rosy Cross.
For those interested in jumping aboard this ambient dance train, here are the official dates:
San Francisco, California
Belly Up Aspen
Kansas City, KC
And here is a little sampler of a few unreleased tracks that Rogers has been working on in the studio.
