DESCRIPTION

It’s fitting that this summer season sees months of Culprit planning and scheming come to fruition. A relationship that began almost four years ago, between Culprit’s LA crew and Parisian native Shonky, has finally been realized, with the mercurial Frenchman stepping up for his first full Culprit release, ‘Oasis’. Shonky first ventured to LA when Droog hosted him on the now defunct Terrace space at Avalon in late 2007. Since then he and Culprit founders Droog have become close cohorts, sharing the same musical wavelength, having playied together half-a-dozen times at locations ranging from Miami, Barcelona and Los Angeles. Shonky was finally introduced on the label earlier this year, when he and Dyed Soundorom collaborated on a remix of Lee Foss’ ‘Your Turn Girl’.
