- Anden


Before its sounds dominated the radio stations, there was a communal experience for those who had discovered electronic dance music. Friendships were formed on a shared love for a type of music that was still a little bit “out there”. Out of a desire to celebrate and recreate the feeling that spurred the growth of electronic music, Anden was born.Brothers Tom and Pete Cuppernull unexpectedly fell into the scene nearly a decade ago and have applied their lifelong musicianship to their music. Classically trained on the violin, cello, and trumpet, the brothers’ club-centric music has supported their rise as one of New York City’s breakout house and techno acts. Anden’s organic and warm productions have garnered cross-genre support from Pete Tong and Bebetta to Above & Beyond and Armin van Buuren, making the brothers one of the most in-demand acts from The Big Apple.2017 marked a year of immense growth for the duo. Anden released over a dozen records and were tapped for remix duties by legendary German act Kyau & Albert. Anden became the youngest American signees to Toolroom’s progressive arm Zerothree Music, and they launched their innovative event series Sound Room Live - taking house and techno out of the nightlife scene to throw parties in non-club venues. The year concluded with a 3-track EP on Colorize Music, gathering extensive support from artists including Lane 8.Anden continues to see success in 2018. They began the year with their genre- defying ‘Retrograde’, grabbing the attention of Danny Howard, who gave the record an exclusive premiere to radio audiences on BBC Radio 1. Their followup record ‘Fargo’ coincided with a slew of bookings across the USA - from Los Angeles, to Miami, to New York - and the duo is set for three EP releases this summer. That’s not all of their 2018 plans, however - Anden is on track to complete their debut LP, due for release later this year.
