At BUCK we’re always seeking something new and unique to showcase, and this year we’re lining up a range of new acts, as well as our favourites.Today we’re thrilled to announce our most exciting new guest yet, in his first ever UK performance – Shawn Wasabi! Unfortunately, no one can really be told who Shawn Wasabi is or what he does – you have to see it for yourself. Thankfully that’s as easy as watching this video:
Shawn Wasabi is a 21 year old producer and controllerist raised by a traditional Filipino family in the city of Salinas, CA. He started his passion into the world of pushing buttons when his childhood friend Ian (of Hyper Potions) left his Midi Fighter 3D over at his house in April of 2013 to play around with and which eventually led to the creation of the live mashup Pizza Rolls. Since then he has established an internet fanbase and reputation as one of the most dynamic controllerists around: pushing buttons for the internet and live for international fans alike.
He awed the world again with his latest release of Marble Soda, which hit a million views within 48 hours of being uploaded.
Beyond the glittery mixture of sugary sounds, Shawn Wasabi is also well-known for the very rare and colourful Midi Fighter 64 controller he uses to create his music. Built with a mixture of 3D printing and laser cutting, this controller was engineered exclusively for Shawn Wasabi by the Midi Fighter inventor, Michael Mitchell.
Shawn will be playing live in the UK for the very first time at the Summer Sun Celebration at EventCity Manchester on 9th of April – this will be a truly unmissable event!
