Anstascia D’Elene is no stranger to the electronic music underground. The Canadian born, Ibiza based artist launched onto the international scene over a decade ago as one half of Blond:ish. Those days saw the duo crisscross the world, providing several renowned releases, both short and longform, via the likes of Kompakt and Get Physical Music. Now, as Anstascia breaks out on her solo path with a renewed sense of enthusiasm and fresh creative spirit, she is set to unleash a world of musical output onto the international dancefloor. For those who know Anstascia, they can all attest how worldliness and spirituality are core elements of both her life and work. Through the interjection of Eastern sounds and psychedelic elements, Anstasica’s current musical output merges her past, present, and future, into something exotic and undeniably fresh.
This hybridity of experience and raw talent pours through Tuvantantan. Born from 2020’s lockdown, where Anstascia explored deep sonic meditations, Tuvantantan combines raspy, prophetic Mongolian throat singing with a dance floor friendly groove. Across its nearly 8- minutes, Tuvantantan travels from the depths of Ibizan dancefloor frenzy through the heights of Far East reflection, all while maintaining the distinctive experience of an unforgettable The Gardens of Babylon night somewhere on the planet.
And those nights are no stranger to Anstascia either, who has been featuring on The Gardens of Babylon lineups since virtually the beginning. With Blond:ish, she made appearances at the likes of the epic ADE soiree The Seekers of Light, as well as gracing the decks of the first ever The Monastery festival. Solo, she has appeared alongside BLOEM during the internationally streamed Global Isolation Party series. Now, with Tuvantantan, Anstascia joins Geju, Jacob Groening, Carista, and Vander as part of the label family as well.
