FM ATTACK (Chrysalis, Turbo Recordings, Tonight Records) – A multi-talented musician inspired by 80’s synth pop, electronic disco, and new wave, Shawn Ward was originally discovered by Tiga, who signed Shawn to his renowned Turbo Recordings label. His unique deep, funky house production was soon sought after, and Shawn went on to release a number of successful EPs on labels worldwide. Shawn later developed a different musical approach under the nom de plume, “FM Attack”, with a distinct “future-retro” flavour and an ’80s pop accessibility continues to attract a growing, enthusiastic fan base. FM Attack’s debut album “Dreamatic”(2009), and follow-up EP “Astrowave” (2010) were soon released on Tonite Records. Both met with critical acclaim and led to remixes for artists including Erlend Øye, Pnau, Edwin Van Cleef, Electric Youth, Sally Shapiro, Tesla Boy and Trans-X.
Shawn has kept busy DJ’ing and touring the globe, rocking clubs and parties in Sweden, UK, Germany, Spain, Argentina, Brazil, and Mexico.
Most recently, finishing touches are being made on the next FM Attack album – due this Summer from Chrysalis Records!
FM Attack been a favourite at ROBOTERIA nights here in Vancouver, and we’re thrilled and honoured to have him appear and DJ with us on August 2nd!
