NOLIFE is the project of 25-year-old Sean Engvold. Born and bred in Schenectady (New York) Sean cut his teeth in a hardcore scene whose sound was defined by the industrial environment that it was set in.

In high school he began to experiment with electronic music, transposing the sensibilities he gained from his involvement in Schenectady’s hardcore community to a new genre. It was during his time at SUNY New Paltz that Sean was brought closer to the DIY noise and electronic music scene that would later inform NOLIFE. Among noise shows, DJ sets, and conceptual applications of music in class, Sean found himself at a point of creative evolution.
