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 on the countryside.
Two main interests have always influenced her life, which is music and wildlife, especially birds.
Kara used to sneak out 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 band “Different sights” for a while, where she created new songs with them.
After Kara finished school, she did a graduation as a sports teacher and worked 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, before she decided to give it a try being a dj as well.
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, Ukraine, India and Costa Rica.

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 plays uplifting trance, euro dance and electro house. She knows how to animate people, a skill developed in her time as dancer, so she is very active with the crowd and talks and sings with the mic.
Kara also became a nature activist, wildlife photographer and film maker with her main goal working for BBC ever as a wildlife film narrator inspired by her idols Heinz Sielmann and Sir David Attenborough.
In late 2007 Kara made her first own trance music production, a collaboration with Matthew K, for which she had chosen “Vengeance” from Germany and “Thr3shold” from Argentina to remix it.
Her second track “Into the sun” was made in summer 2008 and she could win her favorite producer “Airbase” to remix it, other remixes came from Waterspark and Svenson.
“Into the sun “was her first official release (23rd of august 2010), 3 month later her official video for the airbase mix was published on YouTube (Official Canary island Video). For this special video she went to the Canary Islands (Lanzarote) to record the scenes she wanted, this video was cutted under her script, not yet finalized by herself, but the following videos from “Energy of life” on, were all fully filmed and cutted by herself.
Into the sun was and still is her most well-known track and was played by Dj`s worldwide and published on more than 25 compilation cds.
“Energy of life” was released 22.02.2011, which reached the top 100 in the beatport sales charts as well.

“Not alone” will be released on 8th of November 2015 on Defcon recordings.
Borgar Thorrison and Kara Sun got in contact via remix comps and the harmony and understanding between them 2 is simply perfect, so in Januar 2015 she did fly to Iceland to work on further productions with him. They created 2 more new tracks in 2 days and this you can really call a perfect match!
Before she went to Iceland, Thorisson had already made 3 tracks with her vocals, in online collaboration with her and for one of those tracks she also recorded the video recordings with him. This track is a cover version of Sash`s “Mysterious times”, which was a big hit in 1998 all their 5 coming up vocal tracks will be released in the next months on Defcon Recordings.

She went to Malta to record the clips of the “new into the sun remixes”, where she was able to work with 2 professionals from the biggest Malta Tv station for drone recordings and also hull hd recordings from a famous camera man that had filmed lots of Hollywood celebrities before. Film cut was done by her with a little help of friends for color fine tuning.
In the meanwhile she also had published her first bird travel documentaries on youtube from India and Costa Rica and Guatemala.
With the help of her great friend Doug Laurent she could also create her own label “Takara music” on which she will republish her old tracks which are out of label contracts and some remixes of her tracks, which were not chosen for label releases.
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! ;-)
'I like to let you all know by this, that i never received any cent from redux recordings, they are simply refusing to pay me. So by this i am saying something controversal about into the sun and energy of life: I do indeed prefer if you share that tracks with each other or download them in any case anywhere for free, since i have no interest to put more money into redux recordings owner Rene Bos. Instead if you respect me, you can donate money to some of my friend organisations, like peta or mongabay or any of the linked below ones,would be lovely. Thanks for your understanding.'
