In the last few years, Blond:ish has carved out a unique production recipe which focuses on the art of creating music that is organic and multi- dimensional. Provocative basslines contrasted with smooth textures and sticky vocals that blend into a genre of house that rebels against being pigeonholed to any specific category.
2012 releases include their psychedelic influenced ‘Lovers In Limbo’ EP out on Kompakt mid April inspired by Blond:ish’s curiosity of the late 60’s musical movement, as well as a determined release schedule for Noir Music, NM2, Get Physical.
Blond:ish’s innovative and quirky reputation wasn’t grown on a tree but materialized in the dark trenches of Cherry nightclub in Montreal. Anyone that has attended their parties can attest that there is something very special about this underground midweek mangle. It’s the winning formula of diverse freaks, organized chaos and Blond:ish’s genre defying sets that has them still holding their monthly residency since 2008.
This duo rides off each other’s hefty musical knowledge and flawless technique with their diverse personas only adding to the intrigue. Anstascia’s unruly demeanor and creative spark spirals against Vivie-Ann’s scientific and geek-chic flair in a whirlwind of inspiration and contrast. The result is a force to be reckoned with, a vibe that effortlessly transcends in the studio, behind the booth and more than anything, to the dancefloor.
A small town boy at heart, Benjamin was born and raised in Colorado, graduating from college in the small mountain town Durango, CO. With influences of everyone from Sasha to Prince, Whitney Houston to Tale of Us his sound is best described with two words...lust and love. After making a name for himself behind the decks, playing alongside heavy hitters the world over, and working to throw and host absurd theme parties that were consistently sold out and ample amounts of strange…..he decided it was time to pursue the life of happiness for real, packed his bags, quit his career teaching, and moved out to San Francisco. Now with just three years under his belt in the city, he's been able to pick up where he left off….and then some. Creating a monthly in the city called 'You're Welcome', bringing in some old and new favorites from all across the underground, and all across the world, has catapulted him to a consistent name stay in the SF underground. It's begun, but you've only just seen the tip…
