Mwelwa and Luke (aka DJ 4BZ) have been throwing Sunny Side Up events around Chicago since August 2003. Sunny Side Up is a truly Global concept both in terms of the music and the crowd. Musically it has covered everything from Salsa and Meringue to House, from Afrobeat and Reggae to Bhangra and Baile. Solarized, their new monthly residency at Subterranean will continue the global theme encompassing regular guest DJ's and live music from around the world.

October 27th we welcome special guest DJ TopDonn (AfrodisiacTV.com).
Originally hailing from Nairobi, Kenya, DJ TopDonn was influenced at early age by diverse genres of music including Soul, Funk, R&B, HipHop & Afrobeat. His journey into professional DJing began while attending the University Of Nebraska in Lincoln, where he held down several weekly residencies showcasing R&B and Hip Hop. DJ TopDonn’s versatility stretches out to his work on radio where he served as on air talent for various shows on Lincoln's K.Z.U.M 89.3 FM, most notably "Africa Beat", which was dedicated to introducing that market base to African Music.
Additionally, DJ TopDonn held a 3 year residency on XM Radio's Ngoma 102 channel, where he provided weekly mixes for the "Moto Mix" show that aired nationwide on Friday nights. After relocating to Chicago, DJ TopDonn team up with Aurelien P.V to develop a monthly event called Afrodisiac that showcases music from all corners of Africa. Afrodisiac is the longest running Afro-Urban event in entire Midwest and has been featured in 3 print publications, including a feature in Timeout Chicago.
