Born and raised in the suburbs of B.C.’s Fraser Valley, Shawn is a Surrey boy through and through. Growing up in the midst of the 1990’s top 40 evolution, the party scene was where it was at. But top 40 is only able to take a party so far before it levels off and peters out (somewhere around 8:30pm…)
Since 1998, Shawn was hooked on Electronic genres. He quickly considered himself a BreakBeat convert. EVERYTHING was about the BREAKS. Sum-bitch couldn’t brush his teeth without thinking of the beat going in his head!
Over the past 16 years, Shawn has held multiple residencies in Vancouver, Calgary and Kimberley. As well as played one off shows and short tour dates every where in between, including Shambhala Music Festival.
As of 2010, he has combined forces with the heavy hitters in Sleazy Listening. Over the past 4 years, the crew has hosted multiple outdoor events. In addition to a weekly Friday night at the local bar, Sleazy Listening has bookings throughout Southern B.C. and Alberta where they travel with they’re own private rig. The crew is rapidly turning their love of bass music into a “Below 40hertz” force to be reckoned with.
Low frequencies with rhythmic highs, fancy foot-work and a place to hang your hat is what you can expect when he’s in the booth.
Always searching for the next perfect track and that next party to drop it at, his love of electronic music keeps him ever active in the local scene. To him, Its all about the community, it’s all about the music, it’s all about the crowd, it’s all about the bass and the vibrations.
Punch it Bishop!
