The event creator says

The Blend is ecstatic to announce our first international headliner! We are both huge fans of Canson's production and live performances. We are thrilled to be hosting him for his Denver debut and hope you will join us for another night of dancing and top shelf music at The Meadowlark, with Hoang playing an extended set to start the night off.

Please note - This show will sell out, secure your tickets in advance.

Electronics have always played a decisive role in the life of Amar Derradj aka CANSON. Born and bred in Zurich, Canson took up an apprenticeship in machine design, later got into audio engineering and then sold electronic music in a record shop. In 1993 the techno virus got hold of him, thus it was only a matter of time for 17-year-old Amar to buy his first synthesizer. Influenced by the deep minimalism of Maurizio, Amar ventured along. In 2000, he released his first record on Stattmusik under the Anatol moniker, a joint project with Cosili.

First live gigs took place at the Rohstofager club in Zurich, later on Anatol played at prestigious international venues like the Robert Johnson in Frankfurt, the Batofar in Paris and the WMF in Berlin. In 2002, Derradj debuted as Canson with his record ""One Call“. His first releases on his own label Handheld garnered enthusiastic responses (de:bug: "Oh my god, the Swiss!“), more records ensued on Sub Static and Morris Audio.

The rest is a chapter written in the books of Swiss minimal history: With releases on labels such as Cityfox and GS, Canson further established himself as the exceptional Zurich producer he is. His kicking and melodic-romantic club sounds proved to be ever-successful on the international circuit: In October 2010, the Danish label TicTacToe, for instance, released a remix for Mark Henning. And now, after a ten year pause, Canson is touring scenes again as Anatol.
