Experienced in a multitude of genres, VNDMG (Anthony VanVranken) brings a unique and stimulating approach to his high-energy sets. A master of the rhythmic enterprise, he melds both head-shaking basslines and addictive upbeat samples to his work, all encompassed by his signature technique. VNDMG began his musical exploration in Salt Lake City, later landing in San Francisco to share his beats with the Bay Area crowd - and has been expanding his fan base ever since.
His background in IDM/Downtempo as a.vanvranken included the 2004 release of his debut album, Shift. This highly-acclaimed collection was followed by a joint project with fellow Audioflo producer, Pelpp, to release Pedal. Regarded around the world for their signature atmospheric beats and warm, sophisticated textures, Pedal delivered upbeat euphoria to the global masses along with their follow-up, Rake, released under Lithuanian label Surfaces.
a.vanvranken released his second disc, Thin, to eager fans in 2006. This album led to a hiatus from this project and an exploration into the world of DJ’ing and Bass music. Landed, released by Daly City Records in 2011, completed the a.vanvranken project and led to a new venture focused on Bass genres, including glitch-hop, crunk, and trap, under the moniker VNDMG.
VNDMG has shared the stage with such acts as Mochipet, Kraddy, AK1200, Noah D, Ill-Esha and Freq Nasty, among others. With support from affiliations such as Daly City Records, Bass Camp (Temple of Boom) and The Hive Collective, he has been able to widen his musical outlets and provide larger audiences with his fun and effervescent style.
