VANDER


Read the VANDER Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


My name's Vander. I'm originally from The Netherlands but currently I live in the States near Cincinnati, Ohio. I'm a pretty varied artist since I both make and play anything from Electro House/Melbourne to Minimal House or Underground. Especially when producing music, I like to explore and try new things so I keep my sound unique.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


At first I was definitely into the Dutch house and Progressive house scene and eventually evolved into a deeper interest in Minimal and underground sounds. I could list all the artists that have influenced me, but I think the main two would be Deorro and Richie Hawtin.


What´s new right now?


Right now I'm just helping build the underground scene in my area with a local label. Otherwise I'm always working on music and looking for new gigs around the country to play at.

How do you personally discover new music?


I get a lot of new music from other djs and producers who send me either their demos or links to new tracks that they've found and wanted to share. Otherwise I mostly dig through sites and blogs to see if I can find any hidden gems to add to my sets.
