Breaking into the industry on the back of his 1999 remix of Bob Marley's 'Sun Is Shining', FUNKSTAR DE LUXE has proved himself to be a consistent and high-quality remixer and a producer with great ability.

FUNKSTAR DE LUXE was born Martin Ottesen. He played keyboard in a funk band throughout the 1990s but bands like Kraftwerk opened his eyes and ears to the potential of synthesizers and samplers.

His remix of 'Sun Is Shining' blew up around the world. It sold over 1 Million copies worldwide, went Gold in South Africa, Belgium, Sweden and Denmark, Silver in France and the UK and was licensed to a massive number of compilation albums. The single stayed at 1 for 3 consecutive weeks on Billboard's Dance Chart and remained on the chart for more than a year.

'Sun Is Shining' was named 'Track Of The Season' on Ibiza and FUNKSTAR DE LUXE performed the track at the 2000 World Music Awards in Monaco where he was also presented with an award for 'The World's Best Selling Reggae Single'.
