Using his productions as a passport into the wider world of electronic music. Brandishing headline singles including ‘My Lexicon’, ‘The Fruit’ & ‘This Is Miami’, 2011’s
5K album would prove by far the most diverse of his offerings to touch the digital market and club sphere alike. Despite admitting that production remains his least favorite musical journey, the steps between an original inspiration point and that moment of clarity on the dance floor remains an integral part of what has made Sander’s approach so firm from the outset.
As the times have changed, Sander has not shied from embracing new technology. Now renowned for his DVJ concepts in spite of earlier skepticism from the wider industry, this union of visual and musical moments has headed Sander towards an absolution in club experiences that few of his generation have embraced with such persistence. With the addition of his This Is Recordings – a home grown imprint of likeminded talents set to fly high on their own wings in the not so distant future – we see yet further proof of Sander’s ability to take control in the name of honest and organic steps towards musical absolution.
But diversity doesn’t have to equate to incoherence. Just ask Justin Timberlake, Mylo, Daft Punk, Janet Jackson, Annie Lennox or N*E*R*D, whose seal of approval has seen his studio scope reach the unsuspecting world of popular music with seamless clarity. With original productions alongside Dillon Francis, Kraak & Smaak and return collaborator Jamie Cullum, Sander remains persistent in his attempts to break down the barriers of Electronic music alongside artists from across the musical spectrum. Where 5K offered a disjointed insight into his firmly developed studio mind, 2013 looks to provide one of the most homogenous chapter in the modest superstar DJs career to date.
