Aporia / Self-portrait.

Name- Mitchell James O'Sullivan

Age- 22

Hometown- Grey Lynn/ Waihi Beach

Sounds like- Aphex Twin selected ambient works period via Flying Nun via Bristol sound

Musical Guilty Pleasure- unfortunately gonna have to say Oasis/ Blur. love my Brit pop

Formative Musical Experience- discovering Aphex twin one long hot summer, totally blew me away. Before that I hadn't really heard any electronic music I liked. After that all I wanted to do was get a synth and a drum machine. Also listening to CAN. CAN were huge in making me want to make music. In my opinion the best band ever, so much consideration for each others playing and just so organic. no one can really touch CAN in my mind.
