Civil Duty Release Debut Album On The Corner
Shawn O'Sullivan and Beau Wanzer unite for new release on Anthony Parasole's label.
Anthony Parasole continues to stand strong as not only a respected DJ and techno producer, but as a label manager and music taste-maker. Recently, Parasole’s been smashing through multiple hour closing sets at Sonar with Marcel Dettmann and other MDR crew, yet he is still finding the time to perfect his craft as the head of prestigious labels like Deconstruct and The Corner. The latest release on The Corner has Beau Wanzer and Shawn O’Sullivan teaming up again for a self-titled album as Civil Duty.
The release is available as a two 12″ LP vinyl release, as well as a digital download. Both producers have put in work during the last two years, including a full list of releases by Wanzer, and an untitled release by O’Sullivan on the Brothers label that included a collaboration with Hound Scales (a.k.a. Nico Jacobsen). The new Civil Duty album is undeniably a raw techno journey all the way through, and the upfront tempos and track formation reveal that the duo wield the ability to create a fluid album that holds nothing back. The nine tracks on the album clearly express Civil Duty’s desire for constant change and an ability to squeeze new sounds from old forms.
