“Mark Stewart” the man behind the electronic music act ( AntonSzander ), born and bred in Edinburgh Scotland, and living in Lincolnshire England since 2008.
First started making music on ps2 mtv music generator I would listen to trance tracks that where big at that time and recreate them on this basic software i remember doing a cover of Robert miles children and liquid child diving faces they where bang on to what the original sounded that I ended up playing them among others live around my local village where I stayed and got really good feedback from this , I then got the next in the series but started to find them to limited so i worked really hard ( was only 14 at the time and still in school ) doing night shift as well as going to school was hard but in the end I managed to save up for a basic pc from there I started using software like ejay then moved on to magix music maker which was a big leap and a steep learning curve ( at the time ).
That is when i did my first digital mix called demons of me which sounded bad to say the least but a few of my tracks did stand out , I then moved on to produce my first dance album titled Yin&Yang , I kept plugging away and eventually found a collage course in music and production technology at jewel and esk valley collage Edinburgh in which I learnt a lot about three software’s that I still use ableton, cubase sx 3, reason, I also learnt about mastering my tracks better and received an HND at the end of it all.
Even from when I started creating music till this day I go by the way of not being defined to one specific genre I like to go between and sometimes mash up genres together that’s just the way I produce and it gives me constant new ideas for creating and keeping my music fresh.
But if I had to choose two genre’s to sum up my music it would be Experimental/Electro.
My hardware and software I use at current are ableton live 7 and reason 5, cubase sx 3 as well as VirtualDJ pro 7 on my Pc.
And on my laptop I have ableton live 8 fl studio 10 (although I tend not to use that as much these days) and also cubase sx 3 as well as VirtualDJ pro 7
(plus a whole host of VST PLUG-INS) on both machines.
I have an iPad and iPod touch and a Samsung galaxy for controlling my DAW'S wirelessly.
I have an Akai Synthstation 25 and also an Akai Synthstation 49 iPad MIDI Keyboard, Yamaha DGX-200 midi keyboard, NUMARK IDJ3 for dj'ing.
YRG midi guitar and a Fender Squire guitar, Korg NanoKontrol 2, Korg padKONTROL MIDI Studio Controller, IK Multimedia iRig iMic and a few other things that add to my home studio.
I am also to feature on various albums/EP'S produced by other acts including my tracks along for the ride all in all 2013 is gonna be one hell of a year for music !!.
This release has already garnered a great deal of interest from DJs including Billion, AnnGree and Barrington. And you know that with that kind of support in the bag, this is a big, big release. Read More
