Charged by the sonic energy of nearby Detroit, Michigan-born Shaun Reeves was raised amidst the flourishing music scenes cascading from Chicago through to New York, and also took inspiration from across the pond. “I was listening to my parents' vinyl on my Big Bird record player, trying to figure them out,” Reeves muses, looking back at his earliest memories playing with records. Even at that young age his primitive palate was a little too mature for a Sesame Street stereo, with those humble origins setting the DJ-in-the-making off towards a spectacular career in all things house and techno.
Now 40, the DJ and producer is a clubland star in his own right and also steering multiple projects alongside his contemporaries. Pairing up with Ryan Crosson and Lee Curtiss, the trio form Visionquest - a name referring to “a search for personal communication with the spirit world”. When teamed up, they provide audacious underground parties or help to push out new sounds from upcoming artists under their self-titled imprint.
