Blond:ish, Öona Dahl
Anstascia and Vivie-Ann AKA BLOND:ISH’s success lies in their eclectic musical creativity and their openhearted, spiritually attuned approach. Seeking a natural balance through constant evolution, the duo’s music responds to varied worldwide
environments and surroundings, rather than accepting limits imposed by either genre, location or gender barriers.
They play across house and techno genres, aiming for an uplifting and joyful otherworldly experience for listeners and party-goers alike.
BLOND:ISH began in 2008 as a party night which Vivie-Ann and Anstascia ran at Cherry club Montreal, and which organically became their joint name. International gigs and releases on labels including Noir Music and Get Physical brought them to the attention of Kompakt. This began a fruitful relationship with the revered label, which was home to their acclaimed debut album ‘Welcome to the Present’ in 2015. Three years on, the duo continue to embrace new fields, spreading their musical message worldwide through regular international appearances including Burning Man, WooMooN, Circoloco and their ABRACADABRA events in Tulum, USA and Scorpios (Mykonos), their summer residency last year. The duo were leading lights as the Tulum scene began to flower. Their international career blossomed with it, and in 2017, their ABRACADABRA brand was born on a beach in Tulum, crafted by BLOND:ISH and two friends. Meaning ‘I create as I speak’ in Aramaic, ABRACADABRA is a musical movement achieving international success. The signature blend is music, mischief and mayhem, with surprise DJs and edible décor which join together to form ‘a kind of backdoor to discovering our inner child.’ Part of this is their ‘sustainable raving’ credo, aiming by example to inspire promoters to work towards self-sustaining, single-use plastic-free events. Their ABRACADABRA lifestyle, event and party brand is currently celebrating its second year by budding into a record label this spring, with return residencies lined up at Scorpios (Mykonos), Ibiza, and sharing the magic with a stage at Tomorrowland for both dates. Their passionate commitment to spirituality and the environment has them spearheading a groundbreaking ‘sustainable raving’ movement. Anstascia and Vivie-Ann are deeply passionate about yoga, meditation and metaphysics, and plan month-long ABRACADABRA events and retreats to build on their passion. Vivie-Ann is a crypto enthusiast, aiming to reach and inspire people through the concept of cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin. With a South American tour this year and some vibrant new label debuts, residencies and festival gigs worldwide, as well as their new ABRACADABRA label on the horizon, BLOND:ISH will keep evolving and changing, while staying true to their own vision of the world and of music.
A remarkable dedication comes from Öona Dahl and her passion for electronic music. With an open mind and a vast range of music knowledge, she knows how to connect on another level when playing her music to the crowd. Transforming dance floors into spaces wreathed in sound, Öona Dahl’s home is found beyond the conscious state. Testing traditional musical limits with extended mixes, isochronic tones and melodies, Öona’s breadth of skill behind the decks is hard to match.
A graduate of The International Academy of Design and Technology for Digital Media and Recording Arts. Her original production spans broad dancefloor territory, from Techno, Deep House to Experimental Electronica. Finding the balance between light and dark with both her solo work and as Slumber has kept her inspired and able to express both arrays of emotions through her sound.
