from Cosmic Core Volume III
released October 7, 2016
Today, Bl4cksun is a collection of musical artists with a wide range of disparate musical styles and tastes, all crammed together inside one body. Together they share a need to produce music they love; if other people also share a love for some of their music, so much the better. After all, like a tree falling in a forest, a tune no one listens to, doesn't make a sound.

Bl4cksun started his musical career as a trance DJ playing various online radio stations, even winning the odd DJ contest. Some 300 shows later, bored with just mixing other peoples tunes, it was time to start making his own tracks.
A chance discovery of Tom Cosm's website and its first class Ableton Live tutorials saw the release of Bl4cksun's first tunes on Soundcloud. Hooked on making music, an investment in a couple of hardware synths, an Access Virus and Radical Technologies Spectralis, provided a sonic boost to the Bl4cksun sound.
Too many nights spent in clubs and gigs, gradually took their toll on his hearing, and finally an accident with a faulty sound interface and headphones, left the artist with tinitus and damaged hearing. Completely deaf above 8khz with hearing impaired from 2khz upwards, making use of technology and the help of other peoples ears, Bl4cksun continues doing what he loves most, making music.
Personally, Bl4cksun has a wide musical taste, which has led to a number of collaborations and remixes across all sorts of genres. Releases on a number of charity compilation albums followed and collaborations with people from around the world.
He is a member of the Cosmic Core collective, a world wide collection of artists brought together by the Tom Cosm website, and together they release two albums a year.
Most recently the addition of an Ableton Push controller to his collection, has seen Bl4cksun start to work on a sound and style that can be gigged live, so watch this space.....
