It's been a while since Shawn O'Sullivan last donned the Vapauteen guise. EP1 is, strangely, his third 12" outing under the name for L.I.E.S, following well-received releases in 2012 and 2013. Opener "Commands" is a deliciously energetic affair, with metallic percussion hits, raging acid lines and fizzing cymbals wrapping themselves around a formidable, broken techno groove. "Made In Magnasenti" has a more angular feel, rhythmically at least, and boasts the kind of undulating synthesizer bassline that would once have taken pride of place on a mid '80s EBM jam. Finally, O'Sullivan lets his EBM and industrial influences run wild on the forthright, ultra-masculine stomper "Blood On The Moon".
