Richmond, VA-to-LA rapper, producer, and vocalist Peter $un today delivered his last release of the year on Red Bull Records/Mind of a Genius.
Off his infectious summer EP, 3PIECE, the groovy lead single “MY FAVORITE DRUG” received the remix treatment from the likes of UK tastemaker Blinkie, DMV scene-shapers Jae Murphy and Uncle Kizzy, and the goddess of rhythm, Karen Nyame KG. Each version breathes new life into the track, from chill lo-fi vibes, to percussive Amapiano, to unadulterated house made for the dance floor. The four-pack showcases the global versatility of Sunny’s sound while celebrating the authentic stylings of each producer on the project.
Sunny shares, “It’s really fire to see various producers’ perspectives on ‘MY FAVORITE DRUG.’ Sonically, the different energies are amazing and I feel like they’re all perfect for whatever mood you’re in at that moment. Blinkies’ mix sets the tone for my upbeat energy, while Uncle Kizzy’s slower, intimate mix can be a vibe with your lady friend or mans in quieter moments.”
Blinkie adds, “As soon as I heard the original version of this track, the chords for the remix came to me. I wanted to keep the soul of the original but put my spin on it.”
This year has proven to be one of growth and evolution for Sunny, following his deeply personal Phone Calls Gimme Anxiety project. Leaning into a more optimistic sound, 3PIECE packs a punch with its bouncy flows and addictive basslines, radiating the feel-good tones from the summer. In August, the EP track “BURN LIKE FIRE” got its own moment to shine as Sunny performed a special live rendition for SpringHill’s “On Site” YouTube series. Later that month, he partnered with Red Bull Media House and Ghetto Film School to share his story behind “PERFECT TIMING” in a short film titled $unny Daze, directed by rising LA-based filmmaker, Lexx Truss. Today’s remix package keeps the dynamic energy of “MY FAVORITE DRUG” flowing into next year, with more to come from Sunny soon.
