Shawn Minoux has been behind the decks reaching back to the late eighties, and like many, his DJ path began at a young age. He was drawn to the new emerging electronic sounds of Depeche Mode, while embracing the rock energy of The Police and Pink Floyd.
Currently, Shawn holds his residency with M.A.C. Cosmetics, Future Bars, and for years with Thump Radio (defunct)Â where he produced the weekly XM shows known as "Thump Funk."
For over 4 years, Thump Funk was the premier breaks broadcast on XM Satellite Radio, celebrating the busted beats of old skool, nu skool, electro, progressive, psychedelic, and beyond. Every week, the two hour breakfest featured the biggest names in breaks.
Another notable show Shawn produced includedÂ Beatport's "Download," a weekly countdown of the top downloaded tracks at Beatport.com, the online leader in digital dance music.
Shawn also has a background in live theater sound, sound design and engineering, as well as live percussion. One of his system designs was published in the theater handbook, Sound and Music for the Theatre by James Lebrecht. It has been considered the theater resource standard textbook.
"AKA Fiddler- In his earlier days, he's been known to operate equipment in new and creative ways, always experimenting, always fiddling. Hence the name stuck." comments Mason Rothert.
