SØNDER is the brainchild of UK-based South African producer Ashton Fox, who has been making music for a while now under various monikers. Obsessed with music from an early age, he grew up playing the violin, piano and guitar – performing in various orchestras and bands until he discovered the endless possibilities of electronic music.
Since 2014 Fox has been releasing club bangers as SØNDER with the aim of making electronic music that can accompany walks and long journeys but that can also find its way onto a dimly lit dancefloor. With plenty more music on the way and a live show currently in the works, SØNDER’s journey has only just begun.

German DJ/producer Jan Blomqvist has been dubbed as one of the most interesting and promising young artist in Berlin at the moment. He describes his music as a mixture of Radiohead, Muse, Bodi Bill, Stephan Bodzin and James Holden – a beautiful balancing act between melancholic, melodic electro-pop and euphoric minimal techno.
For over 7 years he was the singer, bassist and songwriter of a band who rocked North Germany with a dark melodic grunge-rock sound. After moving to Berlin, Jan discovered a real passion for electronic music and he soon decided to quit the band in order to explore new sounds and influences. He traded his guitar for a synth and never looked back! As a solo artist he has released countless singles and EPs with labels such as Stil vor Talent, Dantze, Hive-Audio or Miteinandermusik.
