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!

TWO (2) ROBOTERIA events coming?! This Summer? It’s true! And sooner than you think!

I let the cat out of the bag last week with a “sneak preview” flyer that didn’t get cleared with the other acts or the host venue, but if you joined us for our special April event, you’ll have some idea where to go for this one.

 

Also, stay tuned for another great night, where ROBOTERIA teams up with a favourite local music collective, and one of our ROBOTERIA DJ’s “other nights” for something you’re just gonna have to…  Well, you won’t have to wait long.  Expect this event to be announced by Tuesday this week!

ROBOTERIA is basically going to be a part of TWO separate, two-room events coming soon.  We’re still waiting for an official release about August 4th, but I’m very excited about both nights.

ROBOTERIA’s just doing some catch-up this Summer!
