SUNRISE HIGHWAY EP Released on Tensnake's True Romance Label
It's mildly comical, that Tim Wagner and Amy Douglas, two former Long Islanders would choose Sunrise Highway as the name for their venture, but one listen to the music, and it's clear as to why they chose such a lofty and expansive name. Sunrise Highway is atmospheric, sophisticated, broad, and most importantly a return to the song as king. Inspired by the juggernaut pop albums recorded at Compass Point, Sunrise Highway blends Pop, Jazz, R+B and House Music into a melange that is modern, but familiar.
The three members could almost be described as a "dance music supergroup" considering their collective pedigree. Tim Wagner is one of NYC's most potent producers, having earned his stripes with the boogie electro-funk driven 33HZ, and then building upon that legacy to create Dither Down Records, one of NYC's hottest tastemakers, releasing dance records with artists as diverse as ORTHY, Eli Escobar, Walker & Royce and Galaxians.
Ask anyone who's anyone in dance music about Nick Chacona and they'll tell you he is one of the best, a DJ's DJ, but he's also a producer's producer. With a CV boasting hits on labels such as Mood Music, Buzzin Fly, Bearfunk, his collaboration with Roy Dank, Beg To Differ, and as a columist for XLR8R Magazine, Nick has been bringing it to audiences on dance floors around the world and delighting all his music touches.
Amy Douglas, has been called "the Queen of Nu Disco" by some, as in the last 4 years, she's made her mark, as feature vocalist for some of dance music's biggest bangers, with artists as diverse as Juan MacLean,Treasure Fingers, KON, Eli Escobar and DJ Sega. She's also front person for hard rock band FEINTS when she's not supplying grease for dance hits round the world.
