New York-based Shawn O'Sullivan is a man of many aliases; as well as exploring new wave sounds as part of Led Er Est and Further Reductions, he has been gaining plaudits for his solo productions under his own name on The Corner, as 400PPM for Avian, and as Vapauteen. Under the latter, O'Sullivan provided one of the most coveted L.I.E.S. white label releases at the beginning of 2012, exploring the industrial techno heritage that has clearly inspired his solo work. Back on L.I.E.S. with this self-titled six-track collection, the current Vapauteen manifestation differs from the consistently frenetic pace of his debut for Morelli's label - the first three tracks see him engage with slower tempos across three tracks that call to mind Skudge duo Fishermen, while the rest are "strictly about power electronics and harsh tone work outs".
