057 Shawn O'Sullivan

Shawn O'Sullivan is a hugely talented young musician with releases on L.I.E.S. (Vapauteen) The Corner (Civil Duty), Avian (400PPM) and Willie Burn's W.T. Records. Originally from Iowa Shawn relocated to New York in the early 2000s and was uniquely placed to experience the burgeoning minimal synth movement which steadily grew out of the city's dive bars and basements in the aftermath of the superclub implosion of the late 1990s/early 2000s.
