Originally hatched in Montreal, but currently based in London, DJ’s Anstascia and Vivie-Ann have established their love child globally by proving that they don’t !t the quintessential stereotype. Fuelled by their sharp taste-maker instincts and technical flair, Blond:ish has not only charmed the industry masses but set themselves to release on some of the most notable labels around.
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 bass lines 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 materialised 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, organised chaos and Blond:ish’s genre defying sets that has them still holding their monthly residency since 2008.
This duo rides on each other’s heavy musical knowledge and flawless technique with their diverse personas only adding to the intrigue. Anstascia’s unruly demeanour 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 dancefoor.
