“Sully” is the brainchild and nickname of Detroit-based producer, Christopher Sullivant. Weaving guttural sound design and intricate textures into wide melodic soundscapes, Sully has proven himself as a force to be reckoned with.
After refining his production skills from the highly acclaimed Icon Collective, Sully first stepped into the electronic music scene in March of 2019. With a series of prolific self-releases such as “Frequency Shift” and “Quake” under his belt, Sully made his WAKAAN debut in late 2019, where he continues to call home for his intoxicating sound.
Sully embraces the beautiful juxtaposition of releasing and performing different genres of music while still maintaining a distinct sound to blanket his catalog. From dubstep to trap, drum & bass, hip hop, and more, there are no limitations to Sully’s artistry.

A Hundred Drums
Thunderous low end and pulsating rhythm embody the powerful music of A Hundred Drums.
Stomping the stage in a tangle of hair and a blur of motion, her high-octane live show is the result of years of searching for that perfect primal pulse that connects humans on the dance floor. Since she was a teenager, Gabrielle Watson has been cultivating a sound that encapsulates experimental hip-hop, psychedelic bass, and indigenous hand drums. After a decade of crafting her sonic signature in cutting-edge spaces, A Hundred Drums has emerged onto the main stage to bring the sounds of the underground to the masses.
Over the last eight years, N2N has become broadly recognized for his blistering marathon sets fueled by infectiously energetic house music. In 2018, he was mentioned by Billboard in its list of the nine best sets from Burning Man, and the year prior he had the opportunity to perform for a global audience in New York’s Mixmag Lab. A lifelong student of music, his sets seamlessly blending genres have become crowd favorites across the country. In the studio, his versatility shines through, as his groovy feel-good style has 'landed him major label signings as well as support from the world’s biggest DJs, including Fatboy Slim, Chris Lake, David Guetta, and Idris Elba. 2022 saw N2N root himself in the scene with a slew of releases on Glasgow Underground, and with multiple records forthcoming on deadmau5's house imprint hau5trap, he has cemented himself as one of the genre's brightest rising stars.
